I'd be willing to bet that free agents this summer are going to get more than anyone thinks. The tone has already been set by the Ruutu and Hemsky signings.
Doesn't Huselius have a history with DS from Calgary? He might be an affordable replacement if Gagne doesn't return. As far as other moves go, I've seen no real reason to break up the King-Richards-Carter line unless it's a significant upgrade over King but a similar type of player. Loki has to be considered as an NHL center at this point and Kopitar and Richards are two others.
Huselius could be a decent option, but I think he'll be more expensive than people think. Even if Gagne comes back, I'd like to add a top 6 forward for depth, and run 3 scoring lines.
That's a good mix of talent IMO. A good coach could get a lot out of that.
