yup. is boston really tight on money? because it looks like he isnt going anywhere.

 

They have $6.6M to spend on 6 players, so yes I would consider them tight on money.

Other teams that are tight against the cap that may have to use their amnesty buyouts include...

 

Philadelphia - $3.3M over the cap / 2 players over the 23 man roster.

Vancouver - $0.9M over the cap / 5 players under the 23 man roster.

Chicago - $2.0M under the cap / 2 players under the 23 man roster.

Tampa Bay - $3.3M under the cap / 6 players under the 23 man roster.

Boston - $6.6M under the cap / 6 players under the 23 man roster.

Carolina - $7.6M under the cap / 6 players under the 23 man roster.

Pittsburgh - $7.8M under the cap / 5 players under the 23 man roster.

San Jose - $8.6M under the cap / 8 players under the 23 man roster.

Minnesota - $9.1M under the cap / 6 players under the 23 man roster.

Los Angeles - $10.9M under the cap / 8 players under the 23 man roster.

 

The Flyers, Canucks and Lightning are the only 3 teams that I would consider definites to use their amnesty buyout as they don't have any other choice. There are also another half dozen teams very likely to use theirs aswell, most likely the Bruins, Hurricanes, Sharks and Kings.

1. Clarkson
2. Horton

Those are my top 2 with Ryder as #3.  I chose Horton though cause despite Clarkson as a potential great fit for the Wings, I fully expect him to be a Leaf next season.  He grew up a huge Wendel Clark and Leafs fan and rumour states we're #2 on his list.  Horton is just as good as him, maybe better and as you can see, dude is a clutch performer.  So I'd go with:

 

1. Horton

2. Clarkson

3. Ryder

Canucks and Flyers are pooched.  The Pens traded away future guys for Morrow, Iginla and Murray to try and squeeze out 1 more Cup and then they'll have zero depth beyond Malkin, Crysby and Neal for the foreseeable future.  And they'll soon find out how hard it is to maintain a long term playoff team without top 5 picks every year for a decade!!  HAHAHA f***ers!

Penner could be a cheap solution to the size problem. I don't know if I would want him though

People complain about Franzen's effort level game to game...I do like Penner none the less though, Id rather see a line of Z, Mule, Penner then Z, Mule, Flip thats for sure.

The Flyers aren't really in that much trouble with the Cap. Remember Pronger doesn't count against it because he'll be on LTIR until his contract is up.
 
They actually have about 5 million is space to re-sign Gagne and to round out their roster. 

Capgeek is a little inaccurate with Philly's roster because they had so many injuries at the end of the season. There are a lot of guys on their Capgeek roster that will be back in the minors freeing up a bunch of space there as well as Pronger's money.

Well we definitely learned a few things in this poll so far: Most of us want either Clarkson or Horton (how bout both Kenny?), Michael Ryder and Bryan Bickell would please some of us, and absolutely no one wants anything to do with Mason Raymond. :lol:

 

Here's hoping Kenny will spend wisely!

Can you stay on LTIR for 4 years?

What's Ryder's deal, why haven't any of his past teams wanted to keep him?  I don't know much about him, just seems to score when he's playing us.

Stephen Weiss wasn't on the list, which I think is an oversight.  He's a good 2nd line center, but above all else, Detroit was rumored to have been interested in him at the trade deadline.  I think if Flip walks, then the Wings are even more likely to pursue Weiss than they already would have been.  He's the kind of guy Kenny likes too.  Good two way forward, scores goals, plays good defense, and is good on the PP and PK.  I wouldn't be a bit surprised if he ended up wearing the Winged Wheel come July 5th.

I don't think there are any rules against it.

 

He's already been on it for 2 years, has moved away from Philly and has no intentions of ever playing hockey again despite not filing his retirement papers.

 

I think Philly plans to exploit the LTIR loophole for the duration of his contract as it was a 35+ contract and would count against them if he retired.

Clarkson or Horton. Ribeiro would be okay for the right price as well.

If Iginla is available, I'd pursue him.  Especially if Pittsburgh doesn't win the Cup.


He's too old, I'd rather invest in someone who can benefit us for a longer period.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

Marian Hossa when he's bought out by the Blackhawks :D


Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

See I think they need a cap on litr. I think if a player is on for two years straight he should be forced into retirement.

Regarding Iginla, for the right price he could be a great two year acquisition, His veteran leadership is undeniable his work ethic is undeniable and his presence around the younger players would be another great influence.

Plus he is still an effective scorer and would be awesome On Datsyuks wing.
Yes I prefer someone younger like Horton or Clarkson but of course there will be a huge bidding war for them, and if we don't win it Iginla would be a viable alternative.

He might not be around as long as those guys but I think Iginla would still make more of an immediate impact than either of them.

I agree. He'll be getting his BIG payday this offseason from someone.

Thanks. That's another point I was going to make. He will make an immediate impact and fill the gap until Nyquist and Tatar reach their primes.

I voted Ryder (goals) and Bickell (some goals, some toughness).  I stayed away from Clarkson and Horton only because I think they will get a ton of cash thrown at them
