halpern is a great depth player at that price as well.
With Florida, as much as I dislike most of the moves Tallon's made, the fact that he had so much roster space to fill and so much money he needed to spend, even with so many questionable moves he's still 17M$ under the cap...
his roster now has 6 quality top-9 players up front, and 3-4 solid top-5 dmen, the bulk of which he assembled today, and remarkably, at least on paper, they have pretty good balance...
Booth*- Fleishman- Bergenheim
Weiss*- Kopecky- Goc
Upshall- Versteeg- Repik*
add a top-3 fwd and a top-pairing dman to that group (which they could easily afford and still have 4-5M in cap space), and that's a deep/dangerous team
the "skeleton" of a very good team just missing 2-3 star players to propel it into upper-tier contention (of course obtaining those types of player is incredibly tough, but that's another issue unrelated to today's moves)
You're missing Santorelli who will likely be the 2nd line centre (6', 200 LBS, 21 goals and 41 points last year). Goc will also probably centre the 3rd line.
I think you're looking at a line-up like;
Booth - Weiss - Versteeg
Flash - Santorelli - Upshall/Dadonov
Kopecky - Goc - Bergenheim/Upshall
Bergenheim/Dadonov - Matthias - Skille/Repik
