GM Game Results

I used the Salary Cap prefix because I'm hoping this will silence some of you saying we must trade one of our puck-movers or Jordan Staal. Anyways, here's How the game was played in the fantasy forum:

Each NHL team was assigned a GM, who was supposed to make the most realistic moves possible to reflect how the remainder of this season/upcoming off-season might shake out. The game started at the trade deadline and is now in the off-season, at the draft (I traded up to get the 13th overall pick-Zack Kassian).

Here was my playoff roster:

Slava Kozlov-Crosby-Gaborik
Pouliot-Malkin-Sykora
Cooke-Staal-Kennedy
Talbot-Zigomanis-Godard

Gonchar-Letang
Whitney-Orpik
Goligoski-Gill/Scuderi
Kukkonen

Fleury
Sabourin

I was knocked out in the 2nd round, but games were mostly picked out of a hat. I think that team could at least make an appearrance in the ECF.

Anyways, my plan for the off-season was to build for both now and in the future. I made it a point to trade up and get Zack Kassian, as well as make a move for Jack Skille. Here's a summary (the cap was set at $58M):

-In Parentheses: (cap hit/ years remaining on contract)

Slava Kozlov(3.666667/1)-Crosby(8.7/4)-Kassian(TBA/)
Pouliot(1.7/1)-Malkin(8.7/5)-Skille(1.275/1)
Cooke(1.2/1)-Staal(3.5/3)-Kennedy(.725/2)
Talbot(1.05/2)-Zigomanis(.8/2)-Godard(.75/2)/Bissonnette(.5/1)

Gonchar(5/1)-Letang(.835/1)
Whitney(4/4)-Orpik(3.75/5)
Goligoski(1.3/3)-Scuderi(1.6/2)
Lovejoy(.85/2)

Fleury(5/6)
Curry(.55/2)

Total: ~$55.4M

Looking to deal S. Kozlov for a young top-6 forward.

2009 Draft Picks:
13th overall (1st rounder- from CAR)
80th overall (3rd rounder)
124th overall (5th rounder- from TB)
169th overall (6th rounder- from ANA)
170th overall (6th rounder)
200th overall (7th rounder)

2010 Draft Picks:2nd, 2nd from Calgary, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th

Draft Picks Traded: 2nd in '09, 4th in '09, 1st in '10, 3rd in '10

Prospects Traded:Carl Sneep, Nick Johnson, Keven Veilleux, Ryan Stone

Top 10 Prospects:
1. Zack Kassian
2. Luca Caputi
3. Dustin Jeffrey
4. Brian Strait
5. Casey Pierro-Zabotel
6. Alex Grant
7. John Curry
8. Robert Bortuzzo
9. Jake Muzzin
10. Nikolai Lemtyugov


Other prospects of note: Joe Vitale, Alexander Pechurski, Tim Wallace, David Brown, Nick D'Agostino, Paul Bissonnette, Aaron Boogaard, Tim Crowder, Joey Haddad, Ben Lovejoy

RFA Signings:

Jordan Staal: 3 years, 3.5M
Alex Goligoski: 3 years, 1.3M
Bill Thomas: 1 year, .55M
Ben Lovejoy: 2 years, .85M
David Brown: 3 years, .65M
Danny Richmond: 2 years, .7M
John Curry: 2 years, .55M
Tim Wallace: 3 years, .65M
Ryan Stone: 1 year, .6M

Not Offered: Mark Letestu

UFA Signings:
Mike Zigomanis: 2 years, $0.8M/year
Rob Scuderi: 2 years, $1.6M/year


***Please Note***
-This was done in a league where every "GM" naturally overvalues their own players, so in many cases, it may be harder to acquire an asset than in real life.

-My main purpose in posting this is to stop all of you from freaking out. There is no need to panic. If I can find a way to put together this solid of a lineup, I'm sure Ray Shero can... He's much smarter than I am.

-The only assets of true value that I gave up were the 1st rounder in 2010 (Gaborik trade), 2nd in '09 (Kozlov trade), Keven Veilleux (also Kozlov trade), and Carl Sneep (Gaborik Trade). None of these seem like too big a price to pay for the lineups I was able to put out there for the playoffs and 2009-2010 season.

A 1st round pick and a prospect is a small price to pay for Gabby. Same goes for Slava.

Also this seems pretty unrealistic because nobody wants Feds or Miro. Alot of adding with not alot of subtracticing.

heh, nobody wanted them in the game, either. I had to basically give them away.

Maybe I should show you guys the actual trades I made:

Stone and a 4th to STL for prospect Lemtyugov

2nd in '09, Veilleux, and Feds to ATL for Kozlov

1st in '10, TB 3rd in '09, Carl Sneep, Marek Malik (acquired in another trade), Nick Johnson, Pascal Dupuis, and Miro Satan for Gabby and Pouliot

Gabby's rights and conditional 2nd to ATL for Skille (acquired in previous trade)

Eaton to COL for 6th rounder

And a bunch of other smaller deals that escape me at the moment.

I don't really remember. I think something like the 20th overall, 3rd rounder in '10 and a prospect...

This is what I wanted to see. The deal for Kozlov looks good. The Wild GM got a boatload for for a player that wasn't coming back. But good job on snagging Pouliot too.

No, that New York franchise is the only team irresponsible enough to do such a thing

My only gripe would be giving up Dupuis, when we need him for role duty on the 4th line when Godard sits in the playoffs.....

It's a good thing you moved up to get Kassian, because otherwise that playoff top six is softer than what we already have. Slava, Gaborik, Sykora and Benoit Pouliot. Yeah, we're not winning with that, either.

The RFA signings seem somewhat realistic to me.

I absolutely hate the idea of picking up Slava Kozlov. He brings a lot of what we already have. He is basically what Janne Pesonen could become with more experience on this side of the pond.

Overall, it's not bad. The main point is Zack Kassian. He could be as important an acquisition as any we've made since the '05 lottery. I really hope we have a shot.
