This offseason will be very interesting, depending on how things work out it may force the hand of the Wings and they'll have to play more young guys. It's not a particularly good UFA crop, with about 7 high end forwards possibly making it to July 5th (I think 1 of Perry/Getzlad resign, Elias, Semin & Iginla all resign with their current teams as well). Their are no #1 dmen out there this year just a couple of #3s, Visnovsky leads the pack as the best but I think he's going to follow the money train and he's going to be in the KHL next year.

In terms of who I would want the most and what I would offer it would be something like this:


1. Getzlaf - 6 years x 40M
2. Perry - 6 years x 40M
3. Ribeiro - 3 years x 18M
4. Iginla - 1 year x 6.5
5. Semin - 2 years x 13M
6. Horton - 3 years x 15M


1. Smid - 3 years x 13.5M
2. Visnovsky - 1 year x 6M
3. Streit - 2 years x 11M
4. Scuderi - 2 years x 8M
5. Regehr - 2 years x 7M

If we get lucky we could have a lineup next year looking like this:

Gustav Nyquist ($1.000m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Corey Perry ($6.667m)
Johan Franzen ($3.955m) / Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Damien Brunner ($2.750m)
Tomas Tatar ($0.840m) / Darren Helm ($2.125m) / Todd Bertuzzi ($2.075m)
Justin Abdelkader ($1.800m) / Cory Emmerton ($0.533m) / Jordin Tootoo ($1.900m)
Joakim Andersson ($0.750m) / Patrick Eaves ($1.200m)
Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Jonathan Ericsson ($3.250m)
Brendan Smith ($1.250m) / Rob Scuderi ($4.000m)
Kyle Quincey ($3.775m) / Jakub Kindl ($1.000m)
Brian Lashoff ($0.725m)
Jimmy Howard ($4.000m)
Jonas Gustavsson ($1.500m)
Buyout: Mikael Samuelsson ($0.000m)
Buyout: Carlo Colaiacovo ($0.000m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $62,467,879; BONUSES: $160,000
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $1,992,121

We buyout Sammy & Carlo (I can really only see Holland buying out Carlo). Re-sign Smith, Nyquist, Andersson, Howard, Brunner & Kindl. We let Filppula & White walk. The only problem is we don't have a RH shot dman in the lineup at all.
