Richards is the best available free agent. There may be some restricted free agents that would fit this need. I have not considered any of these because offer sheets are usually matched for good players.

    I agree that it will cost too much to recruit Richards if he cares more about the money more than winning.....But, if he wants to win it all......what team would be a better option for him than vancouver? Bottom line, as I see it.... Vancouver needs two new top 6 forwards to be a real contender in 2011/12.
    I think you missed the point. Richards is a center which we have no need for. We need wingers. Not to mention Richards will be getting 6 mil probably which is a bad idea if we pursue that.

    Re-sign Higgins, and sign Gagne. Try to bring in Joel Ward as well. If not, then re-sign Torres and stick him on the 4th.

    Daniel - Hank - Samuelsson
    Burrows - Kesler - Gagne
    Hansen - Malhotra - Higgins
    Oreskovich - Lapierre - Ward/Torres

    Hamhuis-Bieksa
    Edler-Salo
    Ballard-Tanev

    Not sure where the cap space is coming from but Gillis needs to do this.

    This could actually work, how much is Gagne supposed to make? I'm assuming less than 6. I had him at 6 on the cap geek thing and i had ward at 2.5. I don't know what is realistic. But with those numbers everything fit within the cap... but that means we wouldn't sign any defensemen. I gave Salo 2.5 and Higgins 2.2. All of these numbers are way off. But that roster looks good regardless.

    Swap Manny and Lappy. Burrows has to play with the Sedins IMO. Higgins on the 2nd. Trade Sammy.

    daniel - henrik - burrows
    higgins - kesler - gagne
    hansen - lapierre - ward
    torres - malhotra - oreskovich

    how bout that?

    Samuelsson is going to be too hard to trade, but if we do trade him that would let us get another defenseman.

    I really want Higgins, Gagne, and Ward!

    I love that. The only thing is in my opinion Torres is such a liability with those stupid penalties he takes. I like him on our 4th line but if he is brought back he needs to tone it down big time.

    I really hope we sign Gagne. I don't care if we overpay a little. I'm actually not expecting him to make a ton of money next season. I think he may take something in like the 4 mil range. Just my gut feeling. Also sf, in your depth chart I see no signs of May Ray. Are you assuming we trade him or something?

    how about this

    Sedin-Sedin-Burrows
    Simon Gagne/Thomas Fleischman-Kesler-Raymond/Tyler Kennedy
    Higgins-Malholtra-Anthony Stewart/Joel Ward
    Jannik Hansen-LaPierre-Sean Bergenhiem/Raffi Torres

    Bieksa-Hamhius
    Edler-Anton Babchuk
    Tanev-Kaberle/other Fa or trade
    Salo

    Luongo
    Schnieder

    Trading Samuelson and Ballard (and maybe Raymond)would be hard, and you may have to include draft picks to entice other teams to take them, but its worth it to get the extra cap space

    I wouldn't pay 4-5 mil for Kaberle to put him on our 3rd line.

    I don't think a lot of that is very realistic to be honest. Just too much money and we would have to find ways to trade Samuelsson and Ballard. Good luck.

    Still frees up the 2.5.

    1. James Wisniewski, age 27. Previous team: Montreal. Last year's salary: $3.25 million. Habs have already traded his rights to Columbus so might not make it to market. Often injured but put up 51 points last year, one more than Ehrhoff.

    2. Matt Gilroy, age 26. Previous team: NY Rangers. Last year's salary: $1.75 million. Former Hobey Baker winner fell out of favour in Big Apple. Canucks had interest in him two years ago. Would they again?

    3. Ed Jovanovski, age 35. Previous team: Phoenix. Last year's salary: $6.5 million. One-time Canuck is entering twilight years. Skating always an asset. Might be short-term fix.

    4. Ian White, age 27. Previous team: San Jose. Last year's salary: $3 million. Small and not terribly strong in own end but good puck mover.

    5. Roman Hamrlik, age 37. Previous team: Montreal. Last year's salary: $5.5 million. Like Jovo, getting near the end. Loads of experience. Short-term fix.

    Slim market. I like White, and jovo. I think we can just focus on forwards, i like our defense the way it is.

    I wouldn't mind Gilroy because he should come cheap. Would be a decent add. The rest seem too expensive. But yeah. We need forwards mostly.
