If they do that, I'll eat a shoe.

There is no way that, if they're both still with the Wings organ-I-zation next season, they're not at least on the team full-time. Tatar has put in *4* years in Grand Rapids, and Nyquist is too talented not to be with the Wings; 2 years in the A is enough for him.

Hell, you know what? I'd be okay with seeing this lineup (why does every thread turn into a "dream-lineup-fest?" ):

Corey Perry ($6.500m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Alexander Semin* ($5.750m)
Johan Franzen ($3.955m) / Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Damien Brunner ($2.250m)
Gustav Nyquist ($1.500m) / Valtteri Filppula ($3.500m) / Tomas Tatar ($0.840m)
Jordin Tootoo ($1.900m) / Darren Helm ($2.125m) / Justin Abdelkader ($1.800m)
Drew Miller ($0.875m)

Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Jonathan Ericsson ($3.250m)
Ian White ($2.875m) / Brendan Smith ($2.250m)
Brian Lashoff ($0.725m) / Jakub Kindl ($1.050m)
Kent Huskins ($0.750m)

Jimmy Howard ($3.750m)
Petr Mrazek ($0.773m)

???????: Todd Bertuzzi ($0.000m) -- Don't know what to do with him, really, but he's got to go.
Buyout: Carlo Colaiacovo ($0.00m)
Buyout: Mikael Samuelsson ($0.000m)
*Trade: Kyle Quincey ($0.000m)
*Trade: Patrick Eaves ($0.00m)


CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $63,803,212; BONUSES: $355,000
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $863,788

* Yes, I think Semin has acquitted himself nicely this season, and I love being wrong about players of his caliber. I don't know that he'd take that amount over a longer term (5 years?), but surely some GMs will offer him at least that.
