I mentioned Nielsen before, lets say we lose on Stamkos, would Nielsen, Okposo and Lucic be an upgrade for our team? The three together would probably cost about $5M more than Stamkos would alone.  Don't get me wrong, I am not saying just forget Stamkos and go for 2-3 others to make up for it, but only one team is going to get Stamkos.  I just hope that he turns us down early so we don't miss out on the others...Maybe Holland will have a good gauge early and that'll be that. If we missed out on Stamkos, I'd be ok with a couple of Nielsen, Lucic, Ladd, Okposo, etc...

 

We need an electric superstar, but all we can do is match the money and see what happens.  Can you imagine the boos he'll get in Toronto if he chooses Detroit? or Buffalo for that matter.... :lol:

 

Does anyone know the offers we tendered our RFA's? I know it was deemed "qualifying offers" but not quite sure if that is a set price based on RFA status and last years salary, or if it was a competitive offer...

there is not a chance that holland would be able to get all three. it's going to be one of the three. most likely nielson if they can't get stamkos since they really need another center

 

qualifying offers are a set amount based on last years salary. You can't negotiate a qualifying offer

justin schultz wasn't qualified by the pens and is a UFA. could be a low risk/ high reward signing

So, CBS Sports did a mock expansion draft of sorts and picked Howard for the new Vegas team. 

 

Ken better move him this summer before we get nothing.

just getting rid of that albatross contract is something. I don't think a team would take a bag of pucks for him right now

radulov's agent claims he is still a free agent and hasn't signed in the KHL yet

 

it would make zero sense to sign before July 1st

Trade for his rights, offer him 11x8. Done and done.

you cannot offer 8 years even if you traded for his rights

 

only the team he played for during the season is allowed to sign for 8 years. And after July 1st, even tampa won't be able to sign to 8 years
