I've said before that i'd rather Zajac then Getzlaf. I think Getz is going to get a fat contract whereas Zajac will get a lesser deal but still be an upgrade for us if healthy.
Clowe or Morrow would be good too.
IIRC we will have ~$28 M to spend and only have Lupul, Gunnar, Kadri, Holzer and Franson as quality players we need to resign (IMO). Only Lupul and MAYBE gunnar would get more than $2M /year. If we are unable to upgrade the net through trade and Reimer doesn't improve i'd take a look at smith too. I think we could use Edler but unless Liles or Komi is traded i don't think it would be a good idea if that much money is on the blue line.
Next offseason (if we have one) will be tricky because we have to think ahead to 2014's offseason. Kessel and Phanuef will need extensions, but if you ask me i think they will end up swapping cap hits.
JVR - Zajac - Kessel
Lupul - Grabo - Kadri (Hopefully, we need his playmaking/passing up here)
Kulemin - McClement - Morrow/Clowe
Brown - ??? - Komarov
On D (other than Edler) i would take a shot on Kimmo Timmonen. Solid Dman and would come with a short-term (in case Gardiner/Reilly REALLY light the league on fire). Last and only option would be Ian White.
Phanuef - Timmonen/ White (for 1 or 2 years until our D talent develops)
Liles - Gardiner
Gunnar - Komi
Nothing really impresses me in net. Backstrom and Smith would be cool but i'm not overly excited about them.
