-We re-sign Smithson and Fistric as PB depth and jettison Brown, Petrell, Hordichuk, Jones, Belanger (buy out), Eager (buy out), Peckham, Potter (bury him if necessary), and Khabibulin. Man, we had a lot of crap on the roster last year.

-Then we replace them with capable guys off the FA pile like Clowe, Cleary (an old MacT favorite), Gordon, Armstrong, Hainsey, and Greiss... I realize that this is a lot of FA signings but MacT kind of hinted at that in his session on After Hours, and we would have lots of holes to fill with all the guys we would be letting go.




*Not sure if Buffalo goes for that deal without a D-man coming back, but they avoid the potential cap trouble of Myers' deal by cutting it back to 5.5 for just next year with Hemsky, and replace his 'potential' by adding a second top ten pick. Seems logical, I would probably add to it if necessary though.
Clowe, Henrique and Hainsey have no business being anywhere near you have them slotted...double ********** yuck. Clowe at best is a second line winger, he didn't score a goal all year until he got traded to NYR. Henrique could be a good 2nd line centre one day. And Hainsey sucks!! Not to mention Buff fans were giving up on Myers because of poor play, I can't really comment because I only saw him play once this year...there could be a reason why he's potentially available.
