Given we're in a good spot on March 3rd (5th-6th-7th) and that negociations with Plekanec are not going anywhere, I'd be tempted to pull a move for Kovalchuk. Let's say:
G. Laraque (
We'd have an option if Plekanec doesn't want to come back, and we'd gain some cap space for this summer.
Even without Plekanec going into 2010-2011:
Cammalleri (6M) - Deharnais (0,5M) - Kovalchuk (9M)
Pouliot (0,9M) - Gomez (7,3M) - Gionta (5M)
Moen (1,5M) - Metropolit (1,5M) - Pacioretty (0,875M)
White (0,6M) - Lapierre (1,25M) - Pyatt (0,6M)
Markov (5,75M) - Subban (0,875M)
Hamrlik (5,5M) - Spacek (3,83M)
Gorges (1,5M) - Gill (2,25M)
= Around 57,73M, and the cap is projected to go up by about 1M this summer according to the last speculations.
is a lineup I'd be comfortable to ice in 2010-2011. Kovalchuk can pretty much carry a line on his back, and Deharnais would look good for sure with two great snipers like those on his wings.
