Playing GM for the next 3 years...

Hey guys,

Wanted to start a fresh topic, so I hope this doesn't offend anyone,

If I ever got my dream job of running LA, and that happens tomorrow...this is what I would be looking at

Off-Season Moves:

Re-sign

Scott Parse, 3 x 850K
Frederik Modin 1 x 1.5 million
Brad Richardson 3 x 1.75 million
Trevor Lewis 3 x 1 million
M.A. Cliche 3 x 1 million
Richard Clune 3 x 750K

That gives me 13 F under contract

I go after the following FA's, hoping to grab 1 of them.

Kovalchuk with a 7 M cap hit for 7 years ceiling
Marleau with a 7 M cap for 4 years

I make an offer to Washington for Backstrom, knowing their cap situation, either make a RFA offer for 7 million for 10 years, or try and trade for him using my 1st in 2010, Stoll, Hickey, and Moller for Backstrom, with the condition that we are able to talk to him before hand.

If neither of the above happen, I target Paul Kariya for a 1 year 4 million contract.

I then trade a 2nd round pick in 2010 and Davis Drewiskie for the rights to Braydon Coburn or Mathieu Carle

I then try and trade a 3rd in 2010 to CGY for Ian White.

Failing those, I target

Willie Mitchell if healthy
Zybenak Michalek
Pavel Kubina,

So for the start of 2011 going into training camp, these are the realistic players to make the team.

Anze Kopitar
Ryan Smyth
Justin Williams
Michal Handzus
Wayne Simmonds
Dustin Brown
Brad Richardson
Ryan Clune
Scott Parse
Frederick Modin
Trevor Lewis
M.A. Cliche
Jarrett Stoll (IF not traded to WSH)

and 1 of the following

Kovalchuk
Marleau
Backstrom
Kariya

On defense

Drew Doughty
Rob Scuderi
Matt Greene
Jack Johnson
Alec Martinez
Vyaschlev Voinov
Peter Harrold

Then 2 of the following

Braydon Coburn
Mathieu Carle
Ian White
Willie Mitchell
Zybanek Michalek
Pavel Kubina.

In Goal, Quick and Bernier

2011-2012 gets murkier

But basically,

Lose:

Modin
Williams
Handzus

Resign:

Simmonds
Doughty
Johnson
Moller (If not traded)
Zatkof
Martinez (If not traded)
Bernier

Replace those we lost with

Schenn
Kozun
Clifford

Then in 2012-2013

Lose:

Ryan Smyth
Jarrett Stoll

Resign:

Thomas Hickey
Colton Teubert
Kyle Clifford
Jake Muzzin
Alexei Lotkionov
Viaschlev Voiynov
Martin Jones
Kevin Westgarth

Replace Smyth and Stoll

with

Lotkionov, Free agent etc
