Seeing as there is more and more discussion about what Vancouver needs to acquire, and even the odd rumours floating around, I figured it might be time to get the ball rollin'. Even if it is a little early.
Just a few names I wouldn't mind coming this way:
(In no particular order)
Moen, $1.5m UFA
Boll, $0.725m RFA
Gleason, $2.75m UFA
Can we see a common theme here?

I have a feeling there will be a crazy bidding war for Gleason. He's interesting, to be sure, but may be hard to acquire.
Aucoin out of Phoenix as a reasonable target?

I'm guessing that once again, he'll pull another rabbit out his hat and find us some help.

Gilman might be a genius but i don't see him producing adequate space to acquire a top 6 forward or a top 4 D without clearing space first and fore most. For instance the Bruins have $3+ million plus available, Philly have $4.6 The Rangers...the RANGERS have $5.5
Gentlemen what you see is what you get, MG has shot his bolt with Booth. If there's any religous folks out there now is the time to speak to your God (s)
