Trade Moen 1.8 and White .7

Not sure why Desharnais was signed so soon but we have to make room for Galchenyuk and Eller at Center. Pleks is our best player.

Cap spacewould be approx. 23 million. New line-up:

Stalberg (FA) 2.0 Pleks Hossa 5.3 (Chicago is in big cap trouble)
Clowe (FA) 4.5 Eller Gally
Patches Galchenyuk Dupuis (FA) 3.0 (other options are Jagr,Clarkson, Fillpula)
Prust Dumont/Bournival Bickell (FA) 1.2
Nystrom (FA) 1.5

Add either Bieksa 4.6 or Doug Murray (FA) 2.5. Vancouver is in cap trouble also.

We get alot bigger and tougher but do not lose any speed.

Dare to dream.
Talk about overpaying for Clowe. Dude is not worth it at his age and after the season he has had. Yes he has improved in NY but I would be too worried he would **** the bed next year again and he is not worth that much on the lowered cap.

Hossa is old and from what some Chicago fans have been saying, no where near the player he once was. He is likely a buyout candidate. Another no thanks unless he is bought out and signs for a year at much lower.
