Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Of course he did...he was a long ways down on the depth chart for a reason. I'm surprised given the desire for the organization to have 101 D-men that have logged NHL icetime at some point in their careers for depth.

I'm of the opinion that once you get past the first call up or two you better be hoping none of the top 4 are injured because those call ups really don't contribute a damn thing.

If Kassian is ever going to get some good minutes, I think MG is going to have to deal a Right Winger asap.

Burrows
Booth or Higgins
Hansen
Kassian
Weise

We also have Jensen to bring along in year or so.

Be nice if we could trade one for a Shawn Matthias type.

Burrows, Booth, and Higgins can all play the left side.

Though I might trade Burrows for Matthias and a pick. A $1.75M cap hit from him for the next 2 years would look good as our third line centre!

Even better.

Trade Burrows and Tanev to FLA, get Matthias and their first rounder in 2015. They're gonna suck so it may be McDavid!!

Sign Morrow - $4M
Sign Blum - $660K

We'd still have $2.2M in cap space then to sign someone else perhaps.

FORWARDS
Daniel Sedin ($6.100m) / Henrik Sedin ($6.100m) / Zack Kassian ($0.870m)
David Booth ($4.250m) / Ryan Kesler ($5.000m) / Brenden Morrow ($4.000m)
Chris Higgins ($2.500m) / Shawn Matthias ($1.750m) / Jannik Hansen ($1.350m)
Tom Sestito ($0.750m) / Brad Richardson ($1.150m) / Brendan Gaunce ($1.057m)
Darren Archibald ($0.660m)
DEFENSEMEN
Alexander Edler ($5.000m) / Kevin Bieksa ($4.600m)
Jason Garrison ($4.600m) / Yannick Weber ($0.650m)
Dan Hamhuis ($4.500m) / Jonathon Blum ($0.650m)
Frank Corrado ($0.599m) /

All except for the part where you have Bieksa playing with Edler. Disaster in the making.

One of Bieksa or Edler need to go if we are going to be playing some youngsters on the blueline. Young players like Blum, Corrado, and Weber, need to be paired with responsible guys like Garrison and Hamhuis, Responsible young defensemen like Tanev are few and far between, some first round picks being an exception. Inconsistent players like Edler and Bieksa are not guys you want playing next to young dmen who struggle with their own inconsistencies of inexperience.

That's just the way capgeek organized everything on the backend. I edited a few things but forgot to move that pairing around.

Weber and Blum are both 24 and I think you could pair one of them with Edler. But we do have $2.2M in capspace with that scenario so additional moves could be made taking on salary.

I'd soon pair one of them with Bieksa.....but that would mean pairing two right-handed shooters.

When Bieksa screws up he usually responds with some snarl and picks it up. When Edler screws up you can expect that to be the tip of the iceberg.

D.Sedin H.Sedin Kassian
Booth Kesler Burrows
Higgins Schroeder Hansen
Weise Lain Richardson -- Sestito Santorelli Jensen Pinizzotto

Edler Garrison
Bieksa Hamhuis
Tanev Weber -- Corrado

Luongo
______ -- Lack Ericsson




The Kings, Ducks and Sharks are going to be pretty stoked we're in their division if this is the team we plan on icing.

Looks terrible.

It does lack a little something doesn't it Rummy ?

Eye Bags had a chance to trade Burrows and or Edler, perhaps move the bible thumper in a package with a more attractive asset ( Tanev perhaps), but he chose to sit on his hands a la Brian Burke/Pat Quinn. The more things change the more they stay the same.

Same old stale core that is 2 and 12 in its last 14 playoff games. I wonder if Santorelli got a NTC being an Italian and a local boy.

Or you can say they look like the team that went all the way to the SCF. Hopefully, Torts can rejuvenate this team.

This team makes the playoffs again this year, and will have a chance to compete. Perhaps if Gillis keeps some cap space for once he can add a meaningful player at the deadline. I'm fine with trying some of the youth, and I'm sure they aren't done adding just yet.

If Gaunce or Lain can't crack the line-up, where is the infusion of size to the bottom 6 coming from?

Sestito is big but I'll be impressed if he stick with this team the entire season, let alone next year.

I'd like Weise better if he were the 13th forward, not expected to be a staple on the 4th.

I think the 4th line can be very effective with Richardson at C if he has two big wingers who are good on the forecheck.
