It seems like some of us believe that the playoffs are likely next season and that this offseason will be easy. Talk to Flyers and Devils fans if you believe this team should be a given to make the playoffs.
Some things we should be concerned about are:
Kessels no trade clause kicks in. If he wants Semin money, no problem. If he wants Getzlaf money we have a big decision to make.
What do we pay Kadri after an unreal shooting percentage this season? Do we have faith that the Kadri we saw during his hit streak is the real deal or do we give him the Gagner treatment?
Which of the terrible Burke conctracts do we buy out?
How much is Phaneuf looking for in a contract extension? If he wants 7 million it might be time to think about shopping him.
How much do we give Bozak? Can we afford having Bozak and Grabo eating 10-11 million worth of cap space?
What do we give the other RFA's who have done well?
Aside from keeping guys around from last year, how are we improving the team beyond addition by subtraction or internal improvement? Who's the number 1 C or the top pairing defensemen next year?
I'm willing to go with Reimer but a reliable backup who can comfortably play some tough games is a must.
