2014 Off-Season Discussion
Here is what I would like to see addressed going into this off-season:
First I would let Timonen walk unless he is signing for 4.5 or less. So I am just going to assume he will retire or move on. I also think Luke Schenn played a great playoffs, and I think I have changed my mind and would like to keep him. Along with that, I think Brayden Schenn is also held onto.
To get a top pairing Defenseman, I am wondering if you can trade Coburn, Laughton, 2nd for Byfuglein. I also like to move on from Grossman. I am also wondering if a team would take Lecavalier without having to take money back. I think our 5th d-man spot should go to Gustefsson. It's about time to see if he can make the next step, and the 6th spot should be one of our young guys that prove worthy out of camp.
I would like to sign Gaborik to add a bit of speed and top-end scoring, add Deryk Engelland as a 7th D-man that can also add toughness, and add a quality back-up like Greiss.
Hartnell 4.75- Giroux 8.275- Voracek 4.25
Gaborik 6.5- Schenn 2.5- Simmonds 3.975
Raffl 1.1- Couturier 1.75- Read 3.625
Akeson .95- Cousins .812- Rinaldo .75
Byfuglein 5.25-MacDonald 5
Streit 5.25- Schenn 3.6
Gustefsson 1- Konan/Gostisbere/Morin/Hagg/Alt/Lauridsen .9
Cap Space: 4.2 million Give or take 2-3 million depending on how much Greiss/Schenn/Gaborik Sign for. If not Gaborik then Vanek or Moulsson. We need a speedy LWer.
