Consider this: (players listed in no particular order)

My Custom Lineup
Gustav Nyquist ($0.875m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Johan Franzen ($3.955m)
Valtteri Filppula ($3.000m) / Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Damien Brunner ($0.925m)
Todd Bertuzzi ($2.075m) / Darren Helm ($2.125m) / Mikael Samuelsson ($3.000m)
Jordin Tootoo ($1.900m) / Justin Abdelkader ($0.866m) / Patrick Eaves ($1.200m)
Jan Mursak ($0.550m) / Danny Cleary ($2.800m) / Drew Miller ($0.838m)
Ryan Suter ($8.000m) / Jonathan Ericsson ($3.250m)
Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Ian White ($2.875m)
Brendan Smith ($0.875m) / Kyle Quincey ($3.250m)
Jakub Kindl ($0.883m) /
Jimmy Howard ($2.250m)
Jonas Gustavsson ($1.500m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $70,200,000; CAP PAYROLL: $64,524,962; BONUSES: $37,500
CAP SPACE (24-man roster): $5,675,038

Now we HAVE to lose some fwd depth. Eaves and Miller aren't likely to be traded imo. I think that with all those forwards Kenny is working on a serious trade for a Ryan or Nash. Trading Fil, Franzen, Mursak, 1st for Nash then signing Semin would be a good solution to this riddle.

7 1/2 hours into FA, the big names all still out there, we have offers in for them, a boatload of cap space left, and a bunch of players to give us a ton of flexibility for trades or roster depth...

And you're angry? Expecting a little much I think...

Perhaps, but we only have about $17 Million left in Cap Space as per Cap Geek. Yes I really don't want Parise and Suter really do think we need them both. Obviously we need Suter more than Parise but it would be nice to have a big-name forward to help bolster our offense a bit more. Yes I do want them both and no I don't want to over-pay for them but this is the first Off-Season in a long time that we've had this much Cap Space and I really do want to make a big splash becasue I'd like to see the Wings win at least one more Cup in my lifetime.

I read Holland, Illitch and Babcock met with Parise at 3pm in Toronto today, the signings of Samuelson and TooToo didn't happen until after 3pm. I bet they knew they weren't getting Parise after the meeting, so now they are moving to plan B which is probably trade for Nash or Ryan.

Parise's agent canceled all meeting today. Holland, Illitch and Babcock did not meet with Parise.

I wouldn't be surprised if our lineup on opening night is
