Try to get a pick for Carle. Before this series, I thought Carolina might give a 1st for him. Maybe not after.

Let go of Leino, O'Donnell, and Carcillo. Leino's wheel, hold the puck, and throw a pass through the middle hasn't worked since January. O'Donnell's looked gassed since November. Carcillo hasn't had a brain since 1985.

Possibly trade Versteeg, either in a package with Carle and something else for a legitimate goalie, or maybe a defenseman to replace Carle. If we keep him, I won't be pissed IF we get him to stop acting like he's Patrick Kane.

If we don't trade for a goalie, sign Vokoun for 2 years, $3.75 Million per. Some people say he'll get less, but I'm not sure.

Sign Anton Babchuk out of Calgary. Has a bomb on the point (hello, struggling powerplay) and blocks a ton of shots. Calgary fans speculate he'll get around $2.5 million for a few years. I'll say $2.5 million for 2.

Also make a run at Glencross. Word is that he's looking for term more than money, so maybe a contract of $2.5 million for 4 years? I don't know just sign someone of that type for that kind of money. Resign Nodl for 2 years, $900,000 per. See if Holmstrom can make the team. Make those three into a nice two-way line.

Here's what the end product looks like...


Scott Hartnell ($4.200m) / Mike Richards ($5.750m) / Daniel Briere ($6.500m)
James Van Riemsdyk ($1.654m) / Claude Giroux ($3.750m) / Jeff Carter ($5.272m)
Curtis Glencross ($2.500m) / Ben Holmstrom ($0.750m) / Andreas Nodl ($0.900m)
Darroll Powe ($0.750m) / Blair Betts ($0.700m) / Jody Shelley ($1.100m)
/ / Eric Wellwood ($0.580m)

Kimmo Timonen ($6.333m) / Braydon Coburn ($3.200m)
Andrej Meszaros ($4.000m) / Chris Pronger ($4.921m)
Anton Babchuk ($2.500m) / Erik Gustafsson ($0.900m)
Oskars Bartulis ($0.600m)

Tomas Vokoun ($3.750m) / Sergei Bobrovsky ($1.750m)

(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $62,400,000; CAP PAYROLL: $62,361,655; BONUSES: $1,825,000
CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $38,345
