Visions of the Offseason

I'd like to share my hopes for this offseason...

Draft: Andrew Ladd... trade up (via limited picks and Lundmark for a 2005 3rd rounder) to no. 17 -- pick either Picard, Valabik or Soderberg.

Re-sign Barnaby... sign Craig Conroy OR Curtis Brown. I'd rather Conroy.

Bure, it's to soon to say. I would hold out until everyone is sure.

Sign Nikolai Khabibulin (not likely) OR Chris Osgood
If Osgood
Trade Poti/Dunham to EDM for 2005 1st. rounder and Staios

If Khabibulin - trade Dunham/Poti to TB for 2005 1st rounder, prospect

Trade Lindros before July 1st, along with Poti/Heerema to MIN for O'Sullivan, Laaksonen and 2005 2nd rounder.

Sign Martin as coach -- I'd like Renney to remain assistant.

Line projection:

Ladd-Conroy-Jagr (reminiscent of Gravey-Mess-Kovy)
Hlavac-Holik-Balej (Neo-Czechmates, 1 alumni)
Barnaby-Betts-Ortmeyer (no. 1 blue-collar line in the NHL)
JGreen-MGreen-Murray (development)



...It's an uphill battle, but we would have the work cut out for us now...
