2010 - 2011

Kopitar - Smyth - Simmonds - Simmer adds some needed jam and energy
Marleau - Frolov - Brown - 2 speedy shooters and a puck possession king
Handzus - Richardson - Parse - 2 centers on checking line
Lewis - Clifford - Clune/Wesgarth - In words of Saliva "Click -Click - Boom"

Doughty - Scuderi - no need to mess with this, JJ joins DD on PP
Hamhuis(Kaberle) - Johnson - Hammer is perfect #3, still young, settle down JJ
Greene - Drewiske - Shut down, physical pair

Quick - 50 games
Bernier - 30 games

Cap rumore to increase 57M to 59M - don't blow this money on 1 superstar as we have our own to sign. Having extra cap space in the next 2-3 years is very important as we have many young core guys to sign + the addition of a playoff rental.

Re-sign Doughty 10 yr 6.5 mil average
Sign Marleau 5 yr 30 mil - speed and shooting
Re-sign Frolov - 2nd line defensive plug, board player, puck possession, passing
Re-sign Richardson 3 yr 3.5 mil total - speed, energy, scoring touch
Re-sign parse 2 yr 1.8 mil total - consistancy will come, should mesh with Richie
Sign Hamhuis 6 x 4.7 or trade for Kaberle............see below

Schenn - with good training camp give him 10 games and decide from there. If he plays well he fits anywhere in the bottom 6 and prepares for next year. If not ready 1 more year of WHL unfortunatly.

If Toronto would accept I would trade Stoll, Williams and our 1st for Kaberle, or Stoll, Hickey/Moller, 2nd . Partial Salary dump, brings in another mobile skilled Dman. Could by-pass Hamhuis and he is off the books after the year is done so we have his money to give JJ, if JJ breaks through. If JJ doesn't perform we could always try and re-up Kaberle and trade JJ. I would rather sign Kaberle as he Gives us instant firepower at a decent price, he gives us another year to see what JJ as well as Tuebert, Hickey, Voinov, Drewiske etc can do.

If T.O doesn't go for the package trade Stoll and Williams for prospects/picks.

Quick gets lions share and let Bernier get feet wet properly unless JB is very successful then let him run with it.

Don't rush Teubert and Hickey - they both need AHL time. If we land Kaberle for the year, it gives the boys 1 year to develop. Loktionov and Moller need extra time to put on weight and develop. Saying that we could see Moller.

Guys that I expect to see playing time - Voinov, Martinez, Westgarth, Lewis, Moller

2011 - 2012

Kopitar - Smyth - Simmonds
Marleau - Frolov - Brown
Handzus/Schenn - Richardson -
Lewis - Clifford - Clune/Wesgarth

Doughty - Scuderi
Hamhuis/Hickey/Voinov - Johnson
Greene - Drewiske

Bernier
Quick

Re-sign Simmer - 1st priority - term depends on development
Re- sign Zues 3 yr 8 mil total, unless Schenn is ready, let Schenn develop on 3rd line
Re- sign Johnson - this depends on breakout or non break out for term and salary.

If we traded for Kaberle in 2010/11 a few thoughts:
1. If JJ pans out, cut Kaberle - introduce Voinov or Hickey - Kaberle's money to JJ
2. If JJ doesn't pan out, re-sign Kaberle unless Hickey/ Voinov looks like a sure thing
If we signed Hamhuis
1. we are set defensively for years, look for Hickey/Tuebert/Voinov to replace the Scuderi's, Drewiske's and Greene's when ready

*MacCauley and his $667,000 off books

Lewis - Clune -Wesgarth

Doughty - Scuderi
Hamhuis/Hickey/Voinov - Johnson
Greene - Drewiske

Bernier
Quick

3 years is a long ways away - we do not know what injuries, salary cap, prospects, free agency will do.

Core = Kopitar, Doughty, Brown, Simmer, JJ, Bernier/Quick
Possible additions = Schenn, Clifford, Hamhuis, Marleau, Hickey, Teubert, etc

Known - Smyth of books
Unlnown - if he is replaced from someone with in or Free agency
