12.1 in room (with savard on LTIR) 6 for rask, 2 for penner, 3.5 + 2 in bonuses for iggy. meh, i'll keep dreaming
Thats your dream. Mine would be 5 for rask. Same for iggy. And penners money for raymond. Dont forget the backup goalie Oh wait......nevermind.
Shupe. Step away from the bridge. You're reacting without having all the information. You've got to know this, right? Rome isn't built in a day, but it certainly can burn in one. Let these other teams have their bloated over-hyped, over-paid contracts. Patience....
No bridge. Im sure something will happen. Rome has a big fat condo with rasks name on it. We had to deal a young player for cap space needed for rask and then to scramble to add pieces. I say a trade like ottawa is the best bet. I dont think ufa is the way to go. I dont think signing rfas max deals is the way to go.
Fact: we need a top 6, bottom 6, backup goalie and hope that our backend wont regress with 3 rookies looking to crack the lineup. We also need soder to be good or you can add another player to that list. We also need rask to show he can play a full season.
i dont think 6 million buys you this and thats running it to the cap max. Every team has turnover. We have a lot of holes. And many dont think the other teams in our conf got better. I do
pitt- kept everyone somehow. Have young guys like beau bennett ready to crack into the lineup. Scuderi very solid guy. Top 5 def. scuderi, letang, martin orpik and niskanen.
philly- lost briere, bryz, got a big 2nd line former captain. Resigned claude, have emery. Mark streit also a fine pickup. Loaded with young skill up front.
Det- Already took the hawks to the limit. Weiss alfie. Lose fip n cleary. Detroit wont miss the playoffs. Good looking young def.
montreal- nothing major, briere small. Parros huge clown but good in room. Haha.
Toronto- grit, skill, young goalies. I like their top 9.
Ottawa- lose alfie gonchar, add ryan clarke and were already an up and coming team
caps- did nothing
nyr- not better
nyi- more grit and will lead the league in hits
carolina- if healthy will surprise
nj- not better
