    I would love to see Afinogenov if he signs another affordable short term contract, would ahve been nice to see the b's take a shot at him last year.. 46pts for .8mill....

    While he's not listed as a wing, Patrick Marleau ($6,300,000), can play wing also (see Heatley-Thornton-Marleau line). But to sign him, we would have to dump salary though. But if the Sharks have a good playoff run this year, they might want to resign him before he becomes a UFA this summer.

    Kovalchuk would look great in a Bruins uniform playing with Savard but the B's are not going to him a huge contract and a boat load of money that is just a pipe dream.
    The only other guy that I would look at is Raffi Torres he's not going to cost you a lot of money. Torres is only 27 years old and he played well for the Oilers back in 2006 playoffs.

    I like Ren Bourque, guy has shown flashes of Brilliance at times, could certainly do worse.

    Fairly weak list in regards to how many guys will likely take pay cuts.I don't see anyone on that list that is guaranteed a pay raise.Even Kovalchuk may be happy to take the same cash long term.Not saying some foolish owners won't overspend and give some of these guys a raise(Rene Bourque,maybe even Boogaard)but I don't think any on the list should expect it.

    dont forget RFA Bobby Ryan, with all of the extra picks might be worth pursuing a deal with him & Anaheim

    Rene Bourque is the guy, a good two way player with some finish.  Although if we can clear enough cap space Marleau would be a decent addition.

    If you think Afin is going to sign for that same amount, after the good year he's having, you are very mistaken my friend...

    Obvious choices are Marleau and Kovalchuk. If we can't get one of them even though he's been a little injury prone the last few years Demitra (he would be cheap) would work well here and Raffi Torres would be a nice fit he's still fairly young as well.

    Wheeler and/or Caron/Colborne plus the high draft hopefully Sequin or Hall The Bs will be stacked with some serious youth! Begin, Recchi and Sobotka will be gone but not forgotten.

    I'm not that excited by this free agent class, the Kovi Marleau swepstakes will be the big game for the summer.

    We'll get outbid by teams left with cap room.

    We'll have to go bargain basement hunting and hopefully get somebody like Svatos with a cap friendly contract.

    I'm going to turn my attention toward the draft and hopefully get one forward from there and another in Colburne or Caron.

    wow what garbage!

    maybe raffi torres, but other than that.

      i would rather give all the kids a shot

    caron,lehtonan?, marchand, knackstadt?,

    Go to tsn draft centre
    top 30 picks then look at honorable mentionS

    those are our 3 second round studs!!!!

    Come to think of it, there are so few quality ufa's that the bidding for them has got to go up.

    I'm taking draft day off, I'll be cheering for this like a game against the Habs.

    Yah, just have to figure out a way to jettison Ryder and Wideman and I'll like this team a lot better.  Problem is that I don't think anyone will take them.

    Posted by TommyD603


    Don't like that 4th line at all.
    We'll be able to find a better Mr. Sluggo than Thornton on the free market in the summer, and probably find someone better than Begin, too.  Begin started hot and then cooled right off.  Bitz...  well...  I don't know...  He's cheap anyway.

       Don't like Marleau at all. Guys that struggle for a couple of years, then suddenly emerge on a contract year, scare the heck out of me.
      I like Torres at about 2.5 M, and Rene Bourque at 3 M, but there will probably some GM that gives them more than that.

    No chance that 4th line stays, but that does look nice if it could ever happen. What about the D? Ference is gone, Morris is a UFA, We all want Wideman gone. Chara, Boychuck (FA?), Hunwick & hopefully Stuart (RFA?)are all still here.

    I don't think its the same amount, but i think all the knocks on him are still there that keep him at a very affordable contract.. This is a guy with tons of skill who always underperforms..

       3 M for Rene Bourque is too high. We would be repeating Ryder's contract all over again. I'd say 2 M, but like badhabitude said with such a weak crop bidding will go up.

       I'd take a chance with Marek Svatos He could fill the role Kessel vacated on Savard right side. With the year he's having we could get him cheaper than the 2.3 M he's getting now.

    You must not watch him play very often if you don't think he is worth 3.  I think it will take 4 to sign him and would not be surprised to see him get a long term deal with 4.5 to 5 million cap hit.

    Free agent signings is not the way to go this year. None of these guys excite me here. I'd have to agree with BadHab, build through the draft and maybe a couple of trades. Wheeler will bounce back, Joe C might get a shot, our top three pick from Toronto should get a look. Lots of good things are going to happen in the next while for this team.
