I wouldn't hate Jackman if it was reasonable. Shultz would be a great signing but I'm not going to get my hopes up over that.
Honestly (if they can't sign Suter) I think Carle at fair deal might be our best bet. Carle has some terrible turnovers but if everyone is going to praise Grossmann for being great defensively you have to acknowledge that he's terrible with the puck. Teams need guys like Grossmann, and teams need guys like Carle.
Carle, Coburn, Meszaros, and Grossmann isn't the worst core to build around. Give it another year and see what our cap space can get us (it's pretty much the elephant in the room but I really think that despite/accounting for all the injuries and wear and tear Timonen's 6.3 coming off the books will be more of a blessing than a tragedy) and see where we are. Maybe Weber pulls a Parise and signs a one year deal and we can get him? Who knows but I'm kind of uncomfortable throwing the bank at Suter and then just seeing what happens.
