Defense is deep and nasty:
Go get him Bowman!
Phoenix GM Don Maloney expects Shane Doan to test the waters as an unrestricted free agent.
Doan expressed his desire to remain with the organization, but the team's uncertain ownership situation may result in him signing elsewhere. Maloney is still optimistic a deal can still be reached though. Doan said he would probably listen to other teams if he made it to July 1 after his season ended, but that doesn't mean he has closed the door on re-signing with Phoenix.
Dennis Wideman to the Flames. 5 years, $5.25 million a year. Holy overpayment, Batman!
Toews has been talking/recruiting Doan the past few days
Chris Hemsworth as Viktor Stalberg.
Russell Crowe as Duncan Keith.
Bill Murray if he shaved his beard so it's just a mustache could play Coach Q.

For players that aren't on our team currently, but soon could be (more hopeful than anything):
James Franco as Zack Parise
Drew Carey as Tim Thomas

Andy Strickland of True Hockey: The Blues will be looking to sign a defenseman. If the Predators lose Ryan Suter, sources are saying that Shea Weber won’t re-sign a long-term deal. GM David Poile couldn’t risk losing both for nothing, and would have to look at trading Weber. Jay Bouwmeester is rumored to be on the trade block, sources are saying no one has approached him about it yet. Sources saying the Red Wings will make a strong push for Ryan Suter, but not as hard for Zach Parise. Don’t be surprised if the Blues look to bring back Carlo Colaiacovo. There is some talk that Flyers defenseman Matt Carle may want to sign with the Avalanche, played college hockey in Colorado. The Blackhawks have serious interest in Justin Schultz. Contract talks between Erik Johnson and the Avs are going smoothly. The Senators are talking contract extension with Chris Neal, who has 1 year left on his deal. The same goes for Mike Fisher and the Predators.
This would be awesome if we somehow got Schultz. This is from mynhltraderumors.com.
What about Jay Bouwmeester from Calgary if they were willing to take some smaller bad contracts of ours back the other way? (Monty/Frolik or Hjalmarsson/Frolik with picks/specs added to whatever side to balance it.) It'd definitely be buying low but he's big, got major wheels and be a great system fit. Still only 28 and only two years left on that deal so we'd have some flexibility in the future for when Olsen/Leddy get expensive. There's worse options out there if we miss on Suter IMO.
For the a**kicking action hero of the movie, how about Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as Jamal Mayers.
