OK so i love datysuk. And i think underestimated for sure. But Ovechkin prob is going to take it this year even tho datsyuk is very deserving of it. they are going to say datsyuk plays with a more talented team then washington so OV is going to take MVP this year. What i think.
Datsyuk and Lidstrom still best Forward and Defence combo in the league.
So i was doing all the crunch work for the salary.
Detroit can keep hossa if willing to give up 2 of the following players
Franzen Samuelson Hudler
Hossa would also have to take a nice pay cut too at least 6.7 for this all to work. so thats 0.8 million less then this year and he could easly make close to 9 for any other team. This is all going with the salary staying the same due to north american economy problems. The 4 million raise that was talked about last summer isnt going to happen now. All teams can hope for is that they dont lower the salary cap and screw over teams like detroit.
So detroit would be left with Hossa Dasyuk Hudler Holmstrom Zetterberg Lieno Filppula Draper Maltby Cleary Helm Abdekelder
Lidstrom Rafalski Kronwall Stuart Lilja Lebda
Goalies is a toss up.. do they trade Osgood and go with Conk starter and Howard back or do they stay with the wizard and have ty play backs or let howard take that roll either way they can afford both... to help cap it would help to get rids of the wizard to gain little bit of cap room
thats my idea for next year and the salaries will work
