what i think Bergevin will do. Seeing as if it's Bergy's first Free agency he will probably be a little scared to make BIG BIG moves. But i see him signing a couple guys MAYBE Dropping Kaberle and maybe making a trade.
A) Sign David Clarkson OR Ryan Clowe , I don't know much about these guys and how much they'd want but i have MTL Signing Clarkson at 3.5m.
B) Buyout Thomas kaberle , Of course this is only if we don't trade him for a 6th or 7th. But who would want him...
C) Re-sign Ryan White , White can get loose and rough sometimes but he plays with his heart and is'nt afraid to stand up for his teammate's. He also is ok in the faceoff zone and we need a 4th line center. Im going to assume we sign him near 750K. This also means we don't have to call up players like louis leblanc and play him on the 4th line rather then getting top 6 minutes in the AHL.
D) OPTIONAL , Trade Rapheal Diaz , Andrei Markov and/or David Desharnais. I find Markov is getting way to old and is getting slower and it's showing. Subban however is still very young and is getting great at the powerplay and is starting to not need Markov as much.
Im going to Assume Markov and DD Stay but MArkov would be highly shopped at trade deadline and if DD doesn't step up his game , DD aswell. However i assume we would trade Diaz For Futures (im not talking **** future's im talking decent futures or a good peice)
E) With the tradeing of Diaz this leaves a hole but i think Therrien will Call up Tinordi rather then signing someone else.
Here's What i got in conclusion:
Rene Bourque ($3.333m) / Tomas Plekanec ($5.000m) / Brian Gionta ($5.000m)
Max Pacioretty ($4.500m) / David Desharnais ($3.500m) / David Clarkson ($3.500m)
Alex Galchenyuk ($3.225m) / Lars Eller ($1.325m) / Brendan Gallagher ($0.870m)
Travis Moen ($1.850m) / Ryan White ($0.750m) / Brandon Prust ($2.500m)
P.K. Subban ($2.875m) / Josh Gorges ($3.900m)
Andrei Markov ($5.750m) / Alexei Emelin ($2.000m)
Francis Bouillon ($1.500m) / Jarred Tinordi ($1.083m)
Carey Price ($6.500m)
Peter Budaj ($1.400m)
Buyout: Tomas Kaberle ($1.250m)
