Looking to next year's free agents list, who would you make a play for?

 

Here are my top 5:

 

- Corey Perry OR Ryan Getzlaf

 

- Travis Zajac

 

- Alex Edler

 

- Mark Fistric

 

If we could pick up one of Perry/Getzlaf/Zajac it would make Franzen and Filppula expendable and they could be traded for a top dman. 


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Filppula will be our big UFA pickup.

 

The crystal 8 ball has foreseen it.

Basically, the same as last year's wishes. 

 

Get a real top 6 forward, and a top 4 defenseman.  And one of those enforcer people.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I think in previous years we could get by with second tier additions because of our roster. Now we need to go all out to get Getzlaf or Perry and some sort of defense option. I wouldn't throw Filppula out there, he's so hugely underrated by even us. He's such a complete player with great work ethic, I wouldn't give that up. I'd pray for some sort of great statistical season from Franzen so we can send him somewhere else in a fair deal. Someone out there will put up with his laziness, I just hope it won't be us for another few years.

After last offseason all I know is all bets are off these days. Not getting my hopes up about getting any big name player.

I suggest that those of you lobbying for a top 6 forward and top 4 defencemen try using cap geek with a cap of 64M to try and assemble a line-up that includes raises for Howard, Filpulla, Smith, and Nyquist and see how you can twist the numbers. I've tried, and the results were two embarassing to post.

 

In short, if a top 4 D-man commands 3-4M and a top 6 forward goes somewhere in the 4M range, it's almost impossible to fit this under the cap. It's actually possible that next year's team ends up being worse than this one, not better.

Okay. So without being able to input different salaries for players getting raises next year due to capgeek only doing the current year, here is what I came up with. The key is to trim the fat (older players making more than they are worth. We need some rookie contracts and some star contracts mixed in. Apply raises for guys using the 9mill left over:

The rest of the oddities in your post aside, in what universe does Alex Edler garner only $3.25m? That will never happen.

Im not sure how much big spending you will see this offseason. The Cap going DOWN hasnt happened since it was introduced in the previous CBA. It will be interesting for sure.

I've taken this roster and monified it for salary, just for discussion's sake (note - this is not MY preferred line-up, just a tidier version of Dirty's):

Not only does this not fit under the cap, but that's the smallest group of Wings forwards I've ever seen. Plus there is only room to buy out Franzen and Sammy. How does one just "get rid" of Bert, Emmerton, Eaves, Cackavo, etc?

 

Like I said, fantasy time is over, UNLESS someone could fit a Corey Perry and Edler type under next year's cap. Realistcally, that is.

I don't see Perry or Getzlaf coming here, I would be happy with Hartnell and/or Edler.

Sammy, Mule and Quincey had better earn their money. I'm not bashing them (I think we're too hard on Sammy and Quincey as is) but if they don't earn their money, that's a very valuable 10.5 mil or so we could put towards other players(Perry@roughly 6.6, Edler at roughly 5 or someone around that value in a trade) Insert one of our young kids, Tatar, someone like that.

In the perfect world we would get Perry, Edler and keep Filpula.

As much as I dislike him, I'd take Perry.  I'm not sure about Getzlaf though.  Talented player for sure but he gets a lot of grief from fans for taking nights off and not working hard every shift (sounds strangely familiar).  

 

After shopping Bobby Ryan several times now, I also wonder if the Ducks would finally commit to dealing him.

Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

Was wondering this as well. I'd love to welcome bobby Ryan on the squad. I'd probly take him over perry if they were both FA.. But if perry does hit the open market, I'd love to get him. Problem is, so would every other team....
