Commit harakiri from being stupid enough to riddle a roster with Cleary, Samuelsson and Bertuzzi.  


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

I'd trade Franzen. His contract is cap friendly and the guy has shown he can be a huge asset.....he just doesn't want to be.
Gus and Tatertots are going to be better players all around than Franzenfloat. I am so tired of watching this guy meander around the ice like he is on a Sunday stroll at a seniors home. Its BEYOND ridiculous. I see Bert hustle his ass around with a bad back. Gus in the minors is a complete waste, and Tatar saddled with Cleary the albatross IF he isn't a healthy scratch.... yet, there is 93, crawling back on a line change or standing in the same spot for 8 seconds of his shift. Imagine having that much talent and deciding not to use it?
He and Lash for Girardi and a late pick would do it for me.

You can now.  That was added to the last CBA.  I'm not sure exactly how it works, and whether it's just cap space or salary as well, but the trading-away team can maintain part of a player's contract.  Capgeek.com can probably explain it...

I would send the dead weight to the AHL = save salary and then try to make a play for Ehrhoff because it seems Buffalo is trying to get rid off every veteran left.

I would build a sophisticated robot with the speed, strength, size, and cognitive subroutines necessary to perform superlatively on the ice. It would dominate the opposition and never tire.

 

That's what I would do.

They already did, but he went back to Sweden.

Maybe you could invent a Nick 2.0.

 

Wait just a little bit more until Buffalo has traded away a few more forwards, then send JGus, Sammy (waive it and we'll slip you a couple million on the side- just don't tell anyone), Andersson, and Smith for Ryan Miller.

 

JGus and Miller are pretty even as far as I'm concerned.  Miller has been in a down-turn, but look at what he's been playing behind.  JGus has been revitalized and be convinced to put on a show as a starter to build his value for a contract anywhere else next summer.  Andersson and Smith cancel out Sammy.  Throw in a draft pick if we must.

 

Now our roster is down by three players and we can bring up Nyquist and keep the rest of our wonderful Wings.

Not a chance in hell. I really feel like a broken record regarding Sammy.
 
Why would he accept that? He's about to turn 37, probably in his last year. Which to accept....Contend for the cup... or......go to to a bottom feeder who's going for a lottery pick.....
 
It's not like he needs ice time to prove himself for another contract. No one will sign him after this year with his age and injury history. This is it for Sammy. He's not leaving his fellow Swedes and his last chance at a cup.



It's like semi retirement.

Question: Is the cap stuck at 64.3mill again next season? I just ask because there seems to be no way to add a guy like Vanek/Gaborik (7.5-8mill) and trade/sign a Dman like Girardi (around 5 mill) from trying on cap geek without buying out Franzen, losing Alfie and promoting loads of youngsters. 


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

Speculation is that it will go up, although nothing is final until the numbers are crunched.

Mac T in Edmonton will be looking to do a deal. Rumor ive been hearing is that Yakupov might be on the table. To Edmonton Mule, Smith, Eaves, Monster To Detroit Yakupov + Smid.????

though I'd absolutely love for that to happen (and I'm sure Pav & Nail would too), those rumors are supposidly "100% not true"

 

 

 

“All these reports in the media about him being traded are absolutely 100% not true,” said Eakins, per the club’s Twitter account.

“He’s a young player and we’re not giving up on him.”

Maybe but Edmonton is in bad need of a goalie. I would think Mac T would jump at this with Smith on the table

What the heck...  for Brossoit and Horak??


I don't get it...they get another undersized forward and an OK goalie prospect while giving up one of their only solid defencemen...the one thing they need.

THE Plan would be:

 

1. Francine trade: At the worst case, trade him for Booth (reunited with Weiss... and still 1 year on his contract). Francine and twins sister's could be interesting for Canucks.

 

2. Quincey trade: Since his best days were in LA, I would send him, Eaves and a pick to Kings for Clifford.

 

3. Emmerton and a pick for Rundbland, I think that at this point his value is low... but he could be nice fit here with Either Kindl or DeKe. Provide us option for the 2nd PP unit.

 

4. Sammy: bye/bye

 

 

Z - Dats - Bert

Alf - Weiss - Tatar

Nyquist/Booth - Andersson - Abdelkader/Clifford

Clifford - Helm - Tootoo/Miller/Cleary

 

Kronwall - E

Kindl - Rundbland

DeKe - Smith

Almquist - Lashoff - Ouellet (as a 7th D)

"Francine" is about as clever as "Osbad."

 

As crazy as Philly is, I don't know why they'd give up a young power forward like Simmonds for someone like Franzen.

I wouldn't trade Mule, just buy him out. Even if we trade him don't we still get tagged with a cap hit if he retires before the contract runs out?
