If he signs with us for 1 year, then that's essentially what he becomes.
He'd come off looking a complete arse.
But I am bored so I give it a theoretical shot for fun here below
Flame away my equally unexcited colleagues:
MY new IDEAL
( 1.200 + 6.500 + 6,500 = 14,200)
(1,000 + 7,357 + 7,050 = 15,407)
The best 2nd line in hockey
(1,017 + 633 + 575 = 2,225)
Sjostrom - Betts -
(775 + 615 + 608 + 538 = 2,536)
AA, Moore, Jessiman, Bourret...
Total cost of forwards = 34,368
(827 + 4,500 = 5,327)
Tyutin - Girardi
(2,844 + 1,500 = 4,344)
(550 + 2,500 = 3,050)
- basically because he is from Evanston, Illinois
Baranka, Potter, Sangs, Sauer
Total Defense = 13,321
(0,8) - whoever signs but I go with The Moose
Total cost for goalies - 7,675
TOTAL COST of this roster - 55,364
The overage from 2007/2008 is around 780 + some unclarity about
contract however that might need to be added on (if Jagr resigns - are the Rangers still penalized by 760 by his old clause??)
The total capspace 2008/2009 is projected at 55.500 - 56.000. This would in effect then somehow barely squeeze in - just like this year.
I like this lineup better though. a lot grittier with a real PP D and 2 real top lines to through at them frozen birds in the Mellon Dome. Tell Chere that he
come and play with Jagr/Sundin. That would be a mentor opportunity nobody would refuse...Like when the 3 musketeers told D´Artignan he must get on board
- 2 years 13 M + bonuses (its gonna cost this)
(RFA) 1 year at 1,0 M
- 1 year at 0,6 M
- 1 year/years at 6,5 M (6,5 M cap hit 2008/2009 + some bonuses)
(one of both of these options) sign at 5,5 for 2 years
Throw 4,5 M at
for a 1 year UFA deal. I do not know the situation with his rights or if he wants to follow his hometown Rögle into the SEL - but he still definitely has got what it takes (injury prone though) - but is a "darkhorse" short term solution until
(hopefully) shows up. I know it is a huge gamble - but with a potentially very high payoff dividend. The 3rd pairing on D would be nasty.
traded to San Jose for
+ minor leaguer/pick
Backman + Hollweg
- used to try to trade up somewhat at the draft deadline (fat chance we get
for giving Hollweg
) or sent to Hartford/released
The Red Wings have 7 Swedes as starters. We would not be icing "chicken swedes" either.
Just a thought
But it will never happen - but hence the name of the thread.
