Can't really see a Kane deal done this season unfortunately, as they'd probably want Edler, UNLESS they would settle for a young players type of package for a retool/semi rebuild, like Kassian, Tanev + 1st.
Similar to that Bobby Ryan trade where the Sens traded Jakob Silfverberg, Stefan Noesen + 1st.

But that's a little too big time for Mike Gillis, more realistic options that are in the "blockbuster" MG ballpark are for players such as Jokinen, Ruutu or Bourque.

Where Booth(capreasons) + Hansen would suffice for Ruutu(25% salary retained) or now Erat!

Jokinen would be superb for centering the 2nd line.


Agreed on a Kane deal, as much as I have shotgunned that idea of late, I don't think Kane goes anywhere right now. WInterpeg will need a good return, and unless they are willing to take picks and prospects, it will probably mean a player has to waive his NTC.....I can't see many top NHL players actually wanting to go play in WInnipeg.

There is probably no deal there b/c Booth is likely untradeable but if Erat puts up enough of a stink, who knows. Two teams trade their problems, see what happens. A buyout in the summer could be used on Erat for only slightly more than Booth, no real difference. Anyway, probably won't happen, but just trying to figure out some way to get Booth gone and maybe add someone with offensive potential in return.


Good thought, but I don't think anyone would be dumb enough to take on Booth's contract (i.e. Mike Milbury isn't a GM anymore :-p).


Unfortunately - Erat is actually only paid something like 2.5 million next year, where Booth is paid around 4.25 million. I would think if this trade were made, we would be either forced to retain salary - or send a pick over. Some gravy would be needed to grease those skids.

Actually there's quite a difference in buying out these two players.

Especially when you factor in Compliance vs Regular.

Like it or not, Olli Jokinen, Stephen Weiss and David Legwand are all classified as top 6 forwards. So is Derek Roy.



Whoa, whoa, whoa, settle down there chief. Roy is certainly not top 6 worthy. If he was we'd certainly would have given up more than we did for him.

Nashville kicked arse on the Erat/Forsberg trade. Never been an Erat fan.

I vote in favour of building this team for next season.

Solidify the 3rd line, much to the dismay of RD, by adding yet another 3rd liner in Matthias.

Need to trade Booth for a one year rental for this season.

Hansen for Matthias.

Offseason sign Vanek to a big contract. (Where Mike Gillis & Gilman shine in signing contracts)

2014/15 season:

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Vanek - Kesler - Higgins/Shinkaruk
Matthias - Horvat - Kassian (IF Horvat is not ready then slide Matthias back to center)
Sestito - Richardson - Weise
