Now I feel like watching Infinity War.

I demand Jim Benning trade for Nick Ritchie, dudes a beast, put him with Horvat and Boeser.
Ritchie would be nice. I was kind of hoping we'd take him in that Virtanen year. Would Hutty + a pick do it? :P

.

Okay dudes (and dudette) here's the plan...

We have tons of cap-space for the next couple of years.

Sign UFAs Mike Green (2 years, $7M AAV) and Filppula (2 years, $4.5 AAV).

(older UFAs will sign short-term contracts)



NEXT SEASON:

Baer/Goldie – Horvat – Boeser
Dahlen – Filppula – Pettersson
Eriksson – Sutter – Virtanen
Lipstick – Gaudette - Gaunce
Granlund
Baer/Goldie – trade one… Gagner – trade

Edler – Green
Juolevi – Tanev
MDZ – Gudbranson
Pouliot – Stecher
Hutton – traded… Biega – Comets (if he clears)

Markstrom
Demko
Nilsson – Comets/traded


ANY QUESTIONS :twisted:
OR

Tanev + *Eriksson + Baertschi + Goldie + Hutton (50% retained) + 7th overall

FOR

Karlsson + Ryan (cap dump) + Burrows (cap dump and not liked in Ottawa)

*Eriksson is not a cap dump after July 1st with just $14M left over 4 years = bang for buck

(ALL the players cash-conscious Ottawa receives are good value and fill all their holes except goal)

(Karlsson extension negotiated beforehand - $8M x 8)



NEXT SEASON:

Ryan – Horvat – Boeser
Dahlen – Filppula – Pettersson
Lipstick – Sutter – Virtanen
Gaunce – Gaudette - Burrows
Granlund


Edler – Karlsson
Juolevi – Gudbranson
MDZ – Stecher
Pouliot – Biega


Markstrom
Demko

I feel like I just entered an alternate universe. Did Skyo hack Strange’s account.

Great ideas and add 1 asshole and maybe, just maybe the team can make the playoffs.

Hutton + Baertschi seems like a good swap to me.

The Ducks need to patch up their holes on defense and El Barto can be more of a creative winger vs Ritch.

It saves the cash-strapped owner ~ $50M over the life of those contracts, plugs their holes, and gives them the 7th O/A.

But I suppose a genius would throw in a 2nd if it seals the deal. :)

Or how bout we let 'em dump Gabby on us as well?

Sure Tanev is a huge step down from Karlsson but ALL THOSE PIECES PLUS $50M!

I’ve got a better idea.
Keep Tanev because duh
Keep Baertschi because duh
Keep the first round pick because duh
Keep all those other guys because duh
Don’t get Karlsson for maybe one season
Take out the cheque book and start writing some Sundin contracts - huge bucks, short term, that other teams won’t match using the Sedin’s cap space. These’ll be three year contracts while Pettersson and Dahlen are cost controlled on ELCs

Sign potentially cup winning defenseman UFA Carlson 3 yrs 10.5
Sign potentially cup winning psycho UFA Reaves 3 yrs 3.5

Put away cheque book and profit.

Baertschi Horvat Boeser
Gaunce Sutter Reaves
Ericsson Pettersson Granlund (soon replaced by Dahlen)
Gold-Lipstick (soon to be replaced by Lind or Gadjovich) Gaudette Virtanen
Gagner (soon to be replaced by a seventh round draft pick to make SKYO happy)

Carlson Edler (replaced by Tryamkin in two years)
Tanev Juolevi
Gudbranson Sautner
Stecher (soon to be replaced by Boqvist/Dobson) Hutton
MDZ (soon to be replaced by a sixth round draft pick and untold SKYO joy)

Markstrom
Demko

Nilsson add more joy with another seventh rounder

Book your playoff tickets.

Am I right?
We are all Jim Benning.

Canucks rumoured to be interested in Hanifin. He's pretty much what we need, but would cost a lot. Prob our 1st round pick + ???

All those pieces are garbage. And Eriksson IS a cap dump as bad as Ryan. Great that he doesn’t have very much actual salary to pay out after July 1, but he is still siphoning 6 million off the cap
