    Bruins UFA's and RFA's?

    Ryder will be an UFA Rechhi will be an UFA when season is done and most likely not resigned. Will this be enough money to sign Kaberle for 2 or 3 years. Correct me if I'm wrong is this what PC may be thinking. I don't want to see Kaberle gone because of FA in the summer time.

    One poster already asked the same ? does PC have another move up his sleeve. Overall I am happy that PC did make moves earlier to give the team time to gel on the road trip with extra practice time. Chara Krejci and Kaberle will be best buddies on the road to get Tomas comfortable with the Bruins.

    For our RFA's in the AHL Hamil and Penner may be involve in a small swap along with Ryder ?

    PC biggest signing this season will be Kaberle and RFA Marchand, I sure don't want to see Kessel situation happen with Marchand.

    The last conversation now we will see what CJ can do with all the parts. I believe this team has gotten much better with the transactions.

    PC is now saying CJ it is all up to you now.

    Yes, Ryder and Recchi won't be back.  Will be replaced with low-cost replacements like Jordan Caron and Rich Peverley.  But I wouldn't be surprised to see someone like Andrew Ference shipped away for cap reasons, freeing up another 2 mil.

    Don't forget there's a chance that Savard may be finished and that's $4M off the books right there.

    Marchand is due a raise as well!  RFA after this season.  Arbetration could be a scary result.  Look for them to give him a raise before that.

    Thanx gents all threads does make sense. It will look like we have enough space to sign Kab and Marchand.

       i hope Marchand is going to be a good sport and take a pay cut until next off-season when Thornton, Kelly, Boychuk, and Paille's contract's expire. If he goes to arbitration this year I can see the league awarding him something in the ballpark of $2M, which would push us over the CAP with Kaberle also signing.

    I wouldn't dismiss the idea at all.  While some of the numbers posted above are off a tad (Kaberle at 4?)...  if they really do have $4mil under the cap and then moved Thomas and his $5mil they could seriously add to this club.  Think about adding Richards to the lineup above?  Flyers don't suck and they don't have a netminder as good as Rask, but their deep deep lineup carries the club.  TT is awesome - but Rask is good, and with a Richards or yet another very good defenseman, we might need a TT to dig us out of the club's deficiencies which is the story of this season.

    Philly and Detroit are not stong in the nets...it will take goals to beat those teams not goaltending.   With the perfect plays Detroit can make no goalie is going to stop it anyways.

    1) sign Kaberle- period.

    With PC trading for Peverly and Kelly, both centers signed for next year, maybe he is thinking the same thing as well....

    [QUOTE]We are going to have some cap room next season. What are we expecting the cap to be, 61? that would be a reasonable estimate. Lucic (4) Krejci (3.75) Horton (4)  11.75 Marchand (2?) Bergeron (5) Seguin (.9) 7.9 Kelly (2.125) Savard (4) Caron (.8)  6.925 Thornton (.8) Campbell (1.1) Peverley (1.325) 3.125 Paille (1) Chara (6.5)   Kaberle (4?)  10.5 Seidenberg (3.25) Kampfer (.852) 4.102 Ference (2.25) McQuaid (.6)  2.85 Boychuk (1.875) Thomas (5) Rask (1.25) 56.275 mix and match however you want, with boychuk and paille as healthy scratches and kaberle signed at 4 mill the Bs would have around 4.775 mill in cap room

    Looks pretty darn good to me! Looking at that lineup and knowing we have almost $5M to go shopping with, I think we're in real good shape.

    If Savvy's $4M comes off the books, gives us $9M to fill the hole at centre.

    Re: Bruins UFA's and RFA's?

    Cap room next year for UFA/RFA's:

    Goalies- 2 signed(TT, TR) for cap hit= 6.25
    D: 6 signed (Z, DS, AF, JB,SK, AQ) for= 16m
    F:  11 signed for 30.6(approx) 
    Total- about 53m.  This doesn't include Kaberle or Marchand and assumes that REcchi and Ryder will not be around next season.

    Another wild card is the Savvy contract.  Will he play? Will that $$ be counted vs the cap??? Nobody will know til next season.

    One other factor to consider is that the B's are carrying an extra forward and D this year.  You let them go or even 1, and you have some more cap savings.  My own personal preference is to send Paille down to Prov where he belongs to save the $1 mil cap space.

    Marchand is having a great year but won't command huge $$ as a 2nd year player.  He'll get a decent raise but not a huge contract.  Kaberle- no clue when PC will offer him.

    No.  Too streaky.  Too many nights when he doesn't show up.  OK, maybe he got religion and that changed.

    BUT

    His skill set is limited, he's got that snap shot, he's opportunistic at that 15-20 range, out around the face off dots.

    His passing is not great.  His stick handling isn't that great, I think he's hopeless 1 on 1 with the goalie.  Of course he isn't physical, no one really expects that, however I think he's a lot more effective simply finishing checks.

    IMO you're better off with a more well rounded player.

    and he'd be worth every penny. i think his production since being on the bergeron line is not a fluke. it wouldn't surprise me if this guy could become a 30 goal man. he should be at least get 20-25 constitently and can play on the pp and pk.

    Re: Bruins UFA's and RFA's?

    The problem is that there aren't any good free agent wingers on the market in the offseason. Milan Hejduk is probly the best one, and that's not saying much. After that, a bunch of guys you can get 20 goals from at about 2M on a 1 year deal or so, Radim Vrbata for example.

    Other people are forgetting that the CAP will raise about 2M or so, possibly more.

    Cap Geek says they have 19 players signed at a total of 53.06M. We have room for 1 D-man (Kaberle) and 2 forwards: Marchand and either Caron/Sauve or a free agent winger (like I mentioned above, such as Radim Vrbata).

    Let's say the CAP rises to 61.4M (exactly 2M more).

    Kaberle-4M
    Marchand-2.15M
    Caron-1.1M/Sauve-.845833K/Vrbata (or some other FA winger)-2M

    We'd be at around 61M (under the cap). If Savard is in fact done, we could add another winger and have Kelly or peverley as the permanent 3rd line centre.

    Lot's of options. After next season, there are finally some good wingers available: Penner, Hemsky, Kunitz and Stempniak, to name a few.
