In response to jmwalters' comment:
Ok, so can we get past the "boo hoo no Iginla" threads and move on?
What's next? What else is out there?
1. Clowe, SJ-can't score but could be fine for the third line
2. Cammellari, CGY-can score but is owed $7 million next season
3. Hemsky, EDM-nice hands but an injury magnet and $5 million cap hit
Whitney, EDM-this is rumoured to be happening (but so was Iginla), obvious deterioration of skills, likely due to his bad ankle
Boumeester, CGY-can eat big minutes but $6.6 million cap hit for next season is a bit excessive
Smid, EDM-solid stay at home type, has absolutely no offensive value
What else is there?
jmwalter's ....I would go after Clowe, Whitney and Hemsky ...but not Cammalerri (not the BRUINS style) ...NEVER JAGR .....not Boum (too expensive) ...
not cammalleri? Not bruin style?
Not surprising he is my first pick. He scores, plays gritty, smart, speed and performs in the playoffs. My offer. 1st and peverly. Peverly has term left as does cammy. Means horton can walk and hes replaced.
My next pickup is clowezy OR Talbot. Revamping my 3rd line.
My biggest concern is defense:
you wont beat a pitt or montreal with lumbering def. sarich is just a depth guy who can play some minutes. Id look to jbo or boyle. Both keep the puck moving and can skate, pass and keep the play moving fwd. the fact our backend needed a upgrade prior to the injuries i think we need to grab 2 dmen.
