With free agency just days away.. I wanted to throw my nickle in the hat for what I wanna see done....
John Madden- Without a doubt, I sign him day 1!!!! Would solidify the 4th line and greatly help out the PK units. Madden along with Ryan Johnson would help Toews, Sharp and Hossa rest a bit and eliminate PK time.
Ethan Moreau- Still has a good 2-3 years left. Is very solid in his own end and loves to hit. Hes also a leader and would help the younger players. Would be nice to bring Ethan back and let him finish where he started. At this stage in his career.. hes perfectly suited for 4th line duty with limited minutes. Could be a huge return on a small deal.
Steve Montador- The D man from Buffalo is a FA. A pure stay at home solid D man would do wonders for the PK.
Anton Babchuk- A big D man with a cannon of a slapper. Still unknown to me why we dumped him so quick. He could be a little spendy, but he is a big strong D man that has good scoring ability.
Jarko Ruutu- I hate the guy.. but what fun it would be to watch him screw with the Canucks. A pure agitator who would find a perfect home on the 4th line. A bigger Adam Burish with an accent.
Ben Eager- Ahhhhh... not a fan.. but if all else fails, see if he takes a decent deal to come back. He does well as an agitator, but I would like to see him drop the gloves more often. Just a few thoughts... I didnt talk about centers yet, because I think McNeil will be a starter as a rookie. Stoked for FA to begin..........
