You guys had your shot, it just didn't work out. The Wings even hooked you up with Ville Leino!!! So let's cut to the chase and look at this summer. We have a decent shot at Zach Parise and Ryan Suter come July 1st. I'm not saying we'll get them, just that we will have the cap space to be a player. We've won a lot over the years, right? Kind of a nice destination to play hockey if you like winning. If we get them? Well let's just say we'll be able to deal with missing out on this once in a lifetime shot at Jagr.
Suter and Parise may be what you need especially if lidstrom retires. That would certainly be a nice haul.
But my proposal was more of a thought experiment of some sort just to see what fans view as valuable. Nothing serious just something i was curious about.
