If we were Colorado we'd go re-sign Peter Forsberg

If the cap is going up $6 million, how much will the floor increase? More teams are going to have financial problems now.

Every team also gets a chunk of that TV revenue, that's why the cap would be going up.

I'd like to take a stab at Weber, if that can't happen then Joni Pitkanen maybe?

I'm really hoping for Lidstrom comes back for one more year and go after a UFA in Brent Burns next year.

Other than that I'd guess we could try for a Brooks Laich or Andrew Brunette. More depth has never hurt anybody.

Why not throw 4 mil at Brad Richards and see if he wants to play for a perennial contender?

And then after NEXT year we go after Weber when he is an UFA (if he signs for 1 year this summer). He can step right in for Lidstrom so we can throw 6-7 mil at him.

What about a guy like Ehrhoff... especially if the Nucks don't win a cup this season... He is a UFA.

I would add a few rooms to the house, pool table, few shooter arcade games, bar, and have my own personal Dave & Busters. Oh right, then I'd spend the rest on the Red Wings.

Shea Weber.



Also If Nick retires and we have a bit more... sign a depth forward....to replace Modano..
then keep the rest for a trade deadline deal .... it is OK to have cap room!


OH and maybe look for a reasonably priced back up for Howie!

who would be a reasonably priced backup for howard? We are paying him 2.25 now, not like we can have that riding the bench night after night

I wouldn't mind seeing Johan Hedberg here.

Mursak is the replacement for Modano. Draper wants back for another year, and I'm not sure with the way he has played this year, that you can say no to him.

This would mean Emmerton would be lost on waivers. I think Emmerton is better than Ritola, but Losing him would not be the end of the world.

Lidstrom has given more hints be is playing next year than he normally does, so I think he is staying. So the defense either stands pat, or they let Salei go for Smith.

I think Holland is going to be in a position to make a trade or two, unless he wants to sit on several million dollars worth of cap space.

Maybe try and get Danny Markov for the back end to help us overspend for players who think they are worth more than they are.

Trade Kindl & Hudler for picks/Nabakov (not necessarily to the same team or as a package.) Get Wisniewski, let Salei go, bring up Smith. Bring up Murask and Emmerton, let Draper retire. Re-sign Miller & Eaves (longer terms this time, they've earned it.) If Lids wants back, who are we to argue :lol: and let Modano retire (hopefully after becoming a Stanley Cup Champion again.) With the increase in cap, losing Kindl and Hudler salary, you would have plenty of cap space open for injury call ups and trade deadline acquisitions...

(note, these are not real line combos, this is just how capgeek listed them)

Well I wouldn't keep Salei, I may get flamed for this but I really didn't see a whole lot of contributing during the regualr season or in the playoffs so far. So having his salary and the 6 mil I'd invest in another goal scorer or possibly a very strong defenseman and a stable back-up for Jimmy.

Yea but, the floor is why 10 teams are almost bankrupt. Teams can't keep up with the increasing floor.

Personally I think they should allow teams to go under the floor, but if they do, they can't get in on revenue sharing.

Then there goes parody. If they can make major profits in Nashville and Tampa Bay, every team should be able to make profits...minus the Yote's.
