We have a great opportunity to tank this year in order to add a top 3 pick in a strong draft plus make some trades at the TDL for picks /prospects, while shedding vets to make room for our prospects. Hopefully, we can trade Goc and for value, unload Kuba and Upshall, and have Jovo retire.

Next off-season, we will then have plenty of cap room to be a player in the off-season with the cap coming down, which should allow for bargain shopping.

Next year, we will look something like this:

Steeg-xxx-Fleishman
Hubs-Shore-Muller
Bergie-Matthias-Howden
Skille-Kop-Parros

Soup-Guds
Kulikov-Weaver
Strachan-Brennan/Robak

Markstrom
Clemmer

Is this great? No, but add a decent center and we will be ok if we get strong goalie play
I think the goalie is pretty much set with Markstrom. He has taken nice developemnt strides this past year. I do see us upgrading with Petrovic- D along with Bjuds-C/F next season. Like to think we had 1 more D in waiting along with 1-2 more fiesty young guns up front. Knight, Trocheck, Megan, Kosov are coming in this next season. Thinking maybe all three can provide the up/down spark similar to Shore & Howden this past season. One point in disfavor, I thought Howden could have had mroe games to date. Shore & Huberdeau were all set with timing. Talllon's blueprint is still very much on course. We will be getting younger but better in the next year or so.
