we can afford Parise without moving Kane or Sharp, that has been posted dozens of times on here, so for those expecting that to happen I think you are wrong.
The Hawks need to move Hammer and Frolik to get this done with room to spare as these 2 alone give us over $5 mil in room to put towards Parise, plus the likely 3 mil bump in the cap, and not resigning Brunette and the rest of the scrubs leaves us room to sign Parise, and a power play dman (like Souray or Corvo....1 year deal, on the cheap, just shoot the damn puck from the point), plus Jim Slater to play our #3 center....
I dont want to hear about us needing to improve our goaltending, it isnt going to happen. Bowman signed Emery for a reason and he is obviously content going into the season with Crawford and Emery. What ever money we have available will or should go to luring either Parise or Suter, get another 2 way gritty center who can win faceoffs, and another bottom pairing dman to either be a pure shutdown dman, or a power play point specialist...either one is needed.
my team would look like:
Parise - Toews - Hossa
Saad - Bolland - Kane
Stalberg - Slater - Sharp
Shaw - Hayes - Bickell
Keith - Leddy
Seabrook - Oduya
Montador - Souray
obviously this defense is going to get torched some nights!! but you can switch out Souray and go with Hannan if you prefer the stay at home guy over Souray and his blast.
I also like moving Sharp on the third line, forcing Bolland to man up and play 2c as this gives us 3 lines that can score and could play havoc against anyone....Stalberg on a contract year could produce bigtime as well playing with Slater and Sharp.
teach Jayes to play center...he would be a perfect 4th line center for us...big, strong, has soft hands, and can play decent two way hockey....cant be worse at faceoffs then Kruger...
Goaltending is the same, but Crawford will bounce back....its just our defense that scares me, but we did win the cup with Nick Boynton on our team, so this overall could work out especially if Olsen steps up and plays big, physical, smart defense for us...and quickens his feet some as well.
team would be tough to play
