2013 Offseason

Hey guys, considering the full-year lockout looks very likely at this point, I wanted to discuss all of the possible moves in the 2013 offseason.

Upcoming Free Agents on the Wings:

Valtteri Filppula (UFA)
Danny Cleary (UFA)
Jimmy Howard (UFA)
Drew Miller (UFA)
Damien Brunner (UFA)
Ian White (UFA)
Gustav Nyquist (RFA)
Jan Mursak (RFA)
Brendan Smith (RFA)
Jakub Kindl (RFA)

Notable Free Agents (possibly) on the market:

Travis Zajac (C)
Derek Roy (C)
Micheal Ryder (RW)
Niklas Backstrom (G)
Nathan Horton (RW)
Kari Lehtonen (G)
Stephen Weiss (C)
Mike Smith (G)
Jarome Iginla (RW)
Alexander Semin (LW/RW)
Ryan Getzlaf (C)
Correy Perry (RW)
Alexander Edler (LD)
Joffrey Lupul (LW/RW)
Dan Dekeyser (RD)

Personally, I would like to see Jimmy, Brunner, Ian, and Fil resigned and all of the RFA's. I would let everyone else walk because we need some young talent in the lineup. We NEED to sign Edler because there aren't many good defensemen on the market. And, depending on cap space, I would love to see KH sign Semin (if signing Perry isn't possible). Semin on the Wing with Datsyuk would be amazing. The plethora of RW's that could play on Pav's wing is intriguing.

What do you guys think? Who should we resign? Who should we let walk? Which big named free agents should we go after? Should we propose any trades? This is a VERY important offseason for Ken Holland and crew.
