2019 Free Agency Class

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

They obviously won't all make it to UFA, but this FA class is more loaded than usual. I could see 5 to 7 of these guys hitting FA in 2019.

Drew Doughty
Erik Karlsson
Oliver Ekman-Larsson
Ryan McDonagh
Ryan Ellis
Wayne Simmonds
Artemi Panarin
Logan Couture
Matt Duchene
Joe Pavelski
Tyler Seguin
Max Pacioretty
Jason Spezza
Mats Zuccarello
Jeff Skinner
Blake Wheeler
Adam Henrique
Jakob Silfverberg
Derrick Brassard
Jordan Eberle
Mikko Koivu

Too bad Toronto will likely sign all of them

Too bad we won't sign any of them. Then again, we could be looking at a new GM.

It would be awesome to snag Panarin just to rub it in The Hawks face. Too bad without trades, there will be no room.I'd love to land land Panarin, Duchene and Eberle out of that group. Now we're talking reloading!

Simmonds is always a great option too!

I could see OEL taking his show to Ottawa to play with Karlsson.

This is on capfriendly armchair gm section under Red Wings named "contending again". I also completed roster makeups for 2017-18 "setting 17-18 roster" and 2018-19 "new era part duex" to show foresight, and preemptive roster management to get us cap space leading up to a +ufa year. Maybe not all perfect moves, but cap compliant, potentially competent rosters and what I think is a decent representation of youth infusion from G.A., retaining roster talent, and making impactful F.A. signings leading to a quick rebuild...oops "retool".bb2392a0cf21eb3ed2198f468adda2c3.jpg

I can't see Karlsson leaving Ottawa. Would offer him the world. 

I feel like any player on that list 32 and under have almost 0 chance they even hit FA.

Well in 2019, at this point in time, we'll have the following players under contract:

Forwards:

Zetterberg
Nielsen
Abdelkader
Helm
Glendening
Svechnikov
Ehn
Smith

Defense:

DeKeyser
Ericsson
Daley
Cholowski
Hronek
Saarijarvi

Obviously, this list will include Larkin, Mantha, Bertuzzi, and possibly Sheahan & Ouellet.  There is also no guarantee that Ehn, Smith, Cholowski, Hronek, and Saarijarvi pan out and are in the lineup, either.  I'd be willing to wager that 3 of the 5 are at least starting for us by 2019.

We should have the cap, if any of these guys reach, to make a competitive offer on someone.  Hopefully we don't have to wait that long to shore up our top defensive pairing, but you never know.
