Cammalleri, Versteeg, Fleischmann, Smid

Whats up guys?

I'm not gonna propose anything crazy but I know Calgary, Florida, and possibly Edmonton might be moving some pieces. There is talk of a Florida fire sale and Calgary is seeing their young guys produce and will most likely move some vets. And Edmonton fans seem to think they are going to have a bigger deal made after moving Mike Brown to free up a contract spot.

Granted, Cammy and Fleisch are both in their last years of deals but I could definitely see both re-signing here. Smid would be a good fit but do we have the room on the blue line?

I see it like this, we have an abnormal influx of good forward prospects now and some could be expendable. Now personally, I cannot stand the sight of Matt Hendricks on our ice. I used to like the toughness and him standing up for teammates but the fact is, he is god-awful. Nystrom has shown he can play a two way game and chip in scoring. Matt Cullen is a good offensive, powerplay guy. And I'm still holding out for Stalberg.

According to cap geek we have: $3,904,524 cap space.

Versteeg - $4.4m thru 2015-2016; UFA 2016-2017
Flesichmann- $4.5m thru 2014-2015: UFA 2015-2016
Cammalleri- $6.0m in last year of deal
Smid- $3.5m thru 2016-2017: UFA 2017-2018

3 proposals, I'll admit, I didn't sit for a long time and think about these but I'm gonna put them out there.

FLA: Ryan Ellis, Josh Shalla (maybe a pick)
NSH: Kris Versteeg

CGY: Nick Spaling, 4th RD
NSH: Mike Cammalleri

and this one is just for (sh*** & gigs)
PHI: Austin Watson, Joonas Rask, 1st/2nd RD
NSH: Jake Voracek
(probably add to this one?)

the motto for these proposals: offense.

I know some of you will say cammy doesn't score or flash isn't what we need. Fact is, they would work very well with smith, wilson, forsberg, etc.

Also, I just couldn't come up with proposals for flash or smid so if you have one, let it ride. Let's get interesting...
