Hit was slightly late, didn't seem all that dirty to me

From the current roster:


-Trade Howard (if possible). Free's up much needed cap space. Sign vet backup, hand keys to Mrazek.

-Let Richards and Miller walk. Helm too if he wants more than ~ $3mil over 3 years. Quincy I would love to resign short term but let him walk too, unless we jettison Ericsson.

-Resign Sheahan, Dekeyser, Marchenko, Mrazek and I guess Pulkkinen.


Guys to target:


-Obviously Stamkos. Guy is elite, we need an elite player and he's only 26. If you can sign him for anything under 10 mil/yr do it.

-Yandle. I would be comfortable anywhere around 6mil for 4-5 years. Maybe that's lowballing him? Obviously can't do both Stamkos and Yandle unless serious moves are made.

-Everyone else out there like Lucic, Eriksson, Ladd, Backes are going to want too much and too much term for their age. Let's not forget that after you hit 30 scoring production declines. 


I know it's never done, and KH is the least likely to make a move like this but I would throw an offer sheet at an RFA who's team is close to the cap. If the Bolts resign Stamkos they may have trouble matching an offer for Kucherov. Kid is 23 and not yet in his prime. If we can't trade for Vatanen, throw an offer sheet his way. Not realistic I know, but if you want a stud for his prime years this is the way to do it.

Boy the Wings sure came out flat, but the last half of the game they put about incredible amount of pressure on Tampa and it's just unlucky we couldn't get that third goal.

I don't blame Mrazek, the fault for the loss falls on our special teams. PP is a joke, pk stinks too.

Bold prediction, this summer Holland moves up and Stevie moves un.

Not a chance this happens. Yzerman has been building his team there, you think he's just going to drop everything? That's silly.

Someone needs to give Johnson the Bertuzzi treatment. 

Wow not cool.

I'm not even going to get angry about this, it's what I expected coming in. Too many weaknesses. They've definitely played decent hockey at times but it'll always come back to bite you.

Mrazek playing is a no brainer. Would like to see Smith and Mantha just for the change.
