In Topic: Free agents this off season

14 July 2015 - 11:57 AM

Some of the 2016 UFA's: E Staal, Stamkos, Kopitar, O'Reilly, Lucic, Seabrook, Yandle, Byfuglien, Kesler, Backus, Ladd, L. Eriksson, Voracek, Perron, E Johnson, L Schenn, B Sutter, Anisimov, Okposo, and several others. If only half of these guys get resigned it is still a great UFA class. try to get 1-2 Dmen and 1 big time forward.


I'm guessing Ladd locks up long term with Winnipeg but Buff may be up for grabs. I would push hard next summer for Seabrook

I'm sure a trade is forthcoming, to clear some space. Plus Franzen might end up on the LTIR when the season starts.


I would love to see someone take Franzen's contract to end that chapter. Maybe Florida or the Yotes.

Ericsson should be traded asap. Play Kindl and dangle him if he plays good and free up room for Marchenko and XO.

Jurco will net 11.

A Timmies run is the #1 priority for any Canadian. We simply cannot live without it. You should not be intoxicated when doing it though.


National Defence is sponsored by Timmies and beer in Canada... O'Reilly still has nothing on Tinky.

Didn't forget him. Just not sure where he fits. He isn't a scorer. His best position is checking C, which is also Glendenings best position for 1/3 the price. In this day and age of salary caps you can't have 3.5 million cap hits as checkers-which helm will be on his next contract summer 2016. he is a GREAT trade piece. franzen cant' be counted on for anything. I doubt he makes it out of october healthy.
 
Adding richards is fine, not great. he is just holding that psoition for 1 year untill larkin is ready. Nothing more. I would bet good money that this move is a result of Bashill and Holland chatting about if he is ready and Blashill thinks he needs time. Just a gut feeling.


You've been talking about trading Helm for years. There's a reason he's still a Wing and that's cause bottom 6 guys like Helm help teams win Stanley Cups.

If possible I wouldn't mind Thornton, Phaneuf and a second pairing defenseman. I'm sure, with Thornton battling on the boards and giving some of our guys some on the money passes and Phaneuf with a more than decent shot out back, that we could generate a bit more grittiness and offense in a playoff series. I still think we need some sort of net crashing/goalie screening goal scorer. Joe has always been a setup guy.

Thornton + Pulkkinen = twine rips!

 

Cheechoo got 54 goals on a line with Thornton.  Imagine what a pure shooter could do with Jumbo Joe.
