No he's not a FA but I wan't Nash. At this point, Holland can trade half this team for him. I won't stand for anything less. Make it happen Ken. Your job is on the line.

Kelly is all hustle and speed. He would be a valuable addition to any team.


This, and I can't state it strongly enough. I never saw much of Kelly in Ottawa, but I've watched since he came over to Boston last year. He was pretty quiet in the regular season last year as he got used to the Bruins system, but he works hard EVERY shift. Even so, Bruins fans were starting to ask, "why the hell did we get this guy?"

Then the playoffs started. The questions stopped. You want to talk about a heart-and-soul guy and a playoff performer, Kelly is your guy. He's been key in both sets of playoffs now for Boston; this year's series against Washington, the third line centered by Kelly has been by FAR the most productive, and his wingers are Benoit Pouliot, who was dumped by Montreal last off-season, and Brian Rolston who everyone swore was too old and done.

Anyway, I have become a huge Chris Kelly fan. I would be surprised if Boston didn't find a way to re-sign him, as I believe Claude Julien and the Bruins' front office love him, but if he's available I would be comfortable giving a LOT to get him in Detroit. Exactly the kind of character and player you want in the locker room.

I don't know why people think Suter will automatically sign here. There are 29 other teams in the league that want him and his current team just soundly beat us. Why not re-sign in Nashville? It's a team that has put together something solid, a great city, and a no-pressure atmosphere. Some guys like that kind of thing. Parise is a possibility; Semin less so.

People need to relax because there's a chance that this team doesn't get the overhaul that everyone thinks is coming. Hasty moves with a short-sighted time horizon are the exact kind of moves that we need to avoid. Also, 2013 is ridiculously deep. It might worthwhile to do some minor tweaks this summer, and then clean house at the deadline based on what is needed at that time.

Parise-Datsyuk-Nyquist

Filppula-Zetterberg-Franzen

Bertuzzi-Helm-Cleary

Eaves-Abdelkader-Mursak

Miller



Suter-Kronwall

Quincey-White

Ericsson-Smith

Kindl



Howard-MacDonald

Then they would have like 15mil leftover... They will at least get SOMEBODY.
if they keep lidstrom, I see them getting 1 good forward
If lidstrom goes, I see them getting 1 good forward AND pushing hard for suter

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

SALARY CAP: $67,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $66,900,833; BONUSES: $222,500
CAP SPACE (21-man roster): $399,167

This is my dream lineup. The possibility of it ever happening are 0.0000009% chances. And, the cap would have to go up by 3 million for it to be possible. And, this is assuming that Lidstrom/Holmstrom retire, and that Hudler/Stuart walk.

But, I would trade Franzen, Kindl, Tatar, and 2013 1st for Rick Nash (very steep, but we'll have to overpay to ever get our divisional rivals franchise player...I'd even throw in an extra pick if necessary).

I would then sign Parise, persuading him with the idea of playing on a line with Datsyuk and Nash.

I would then trade the rights to Kyle Quincy and Teemu Pulkkinen for Jay Bouwmeester. I think he would flourish within our system.

I would then proceed to trade Jakub Kindl and Ryan Sproul for Luke Schenn.


I am well aware that this would be trading away a lot of our farm, but we are in major need of retooling this team now and not later. We would still be full of promising prospects (Sheahan, Jurco, Jarnkrok, Oullet, Trvdon, ect). I think this line-up would instantly bring us back to being the cup favorites. Our offense would be deadly, and our defense would be about as good as it is now but with a lot more youth and a whole of potential.
The cake is a lie...

Nope, I want Bouwmeester to skate around with the cup in his hands while wearing the winged wheel. I don't buy into superstitions or "curses".

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $67,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $66,900,833; BONUSES: $222,500
CAP SPACE (21-man roster): $399,167

This is my dream lineup. The possibility of it ever happening are 0.0000009% chances. And, the cap would have to go up by 3 million for it to be possible. And, this is assuming that Lidstrom/Holmstrom retire, and that Hudler/Stuart walk.

But, I would trade Franzen, Kindl, Tatar, and 2013 1st for Rick Nash (very steep, but we'll have to overpay to ever get our divisional rivals franchise player...I'd even throw in an extra pick if necessary).

I would then sign Parise, persuading him with the idea of playing on a line with Datsyuk and Nash.

I would then trade the rights to Kyle Quincy and Teemu Pulkkinen for Jay Bouwmeester. I think he would flourish within our system.

I would then proceed to trade Jakub Kindl and Ryan Sproul for Luke Schenn.


I am well aware that this would be trading away a lot of our farm, but we are in major need of retooling this team now and not later. We would still be full of promising prospects (Sheahan, Jurco, Jarnkrok, Oullet, Trvdon, ect). I think this line-up would instantly bring us back to being the cup favorites. Our offense would be deadly, and our defense would be about as good as it is now but with a lot more youth and a whole of potential.

Not that it matters much, but you traded Kindl twice.

I think we should go with a top 6 1 1 approach.

top 6 is set so line 3 could be our checking line and the 4 th line tough as nails maybe something like this:

Kassian, Prust and Staubitz as a fourth line? Its really too bad Shawn Thornton is not avaiable he would be exactly the type of guy you'd want on your fourth line.

defense of course Suter but if Nashville is going deep I have a hard time seeing him not re-signing there.

I'm sure a lot of players will sign with their current team, but it's nice to see who's out there and what their cap hit is.

Thanks for posting.

I want that Lidstrom guy.


Yeah, I hear he's pretty good...we should probably look into that.

On the "a lot of players will sign with their current team" topic, I know Selanne's going to play for the Ducks if he comes back, but when I saw his name on there, that little voice in my head went "WOOO, SIGN SELANNE, TROLOLOL!!" before I could stop it. ;)

Just an idea, but what do you guys think of Jarret Stoll? Scored 20 goals this year, up from 16 the year before, plays physically, seems like he has a lot of give-a-flip-itude... He'll probably sign with the Kings again, but his name stuck out at me for a less expensive guy.

Apparently he's kind of clutch, too.

Chris Mason would be an excellent backup to push Howard.

Wish List:

Parise
Suter
Prust/Moen/Campbell
Konopka
Carkner

I don't think Parise will sign with the Wings. And given the fact that Parise and Suter are really good friends and might want to try and pull a Miami Heat type of thing and sign somewhere together and I seriously doubt Detroit will be that place.
