And I hope Slats' has some ace up his sleeve with McD because I expect offer sheets to pour in for him, I can see a 7 year $50 mill offer sheet in Paul Holmgren's future, lol.
Clowe will only be here if he takes a paycut. 2-3 year deal at 3.5 million max.

Still a believer in very little roster turnover.
As am I. Upgrade the 3rd line center and 2nd line LW positions and we're in very solid shape. It's very likely that Miller or Lindberg will be ready for 3rd line minutes by the end of next season, but I would not be opposed to going out and getting Burmistrov as many have suggested here. Even if Miller or Lindberg push for minutes, Burmistrov can play LW, Miller can play either wing as well.

The 2nd line LW hole is a bit more tricky. If bought out, I wouldn't mind buying low on Tuomo Ruutu as I previously mentioned. Otherwise, it needs to be addressed by trade.


Is a very deep forward corps. provided JT or Oscar are ready. Fast and Thomas are the first call ups.
