Poile's UFA Movement Prediction/News Thread

Not to put a hex on any developments....but if a deal is done this weekend, what are some predictions for UFA moves by David Poile as the season gets started?

Things could get fast and furious around the league in a hurry.

not knowing who the UFA's will be, you'd have to assume that the following are locks, barring any unforeseen trades...

(in not necessarily the way they'll be lined up...)


with McKenzie, Stevenson in the mix with Tootoo, Shishkanov, Gamache, Fiddler, Haydar, Segal, and Pivko possible from Mil.

With Zholtok sadly out of the mix, we might want to add another center (understatement of the century, i know) and go with the muscle at one wing and a youngster at the other wing. I'd like to maybe see them let Tootoo work on his skills in Milwaukee, however, they may feel they need him here for marketing purposes again.


with veterans Lilja, Hnidy, and Allison in the mix with youngsters Hutchinson, Suter, Klein for the final two spots

I guess this sort of depends on what's up with Andreas Worrell's legal issues. If Worrell is cut or suspended or whatever, I figure Hnidy is definitely a lock. But, if a high quality veteran defenseman is available at a bargain, you might have to jump on it right now in lieu of Hnidy.

We still have to sign Erat and Hall - It will be interesting to see how much they demand now with the 24% rollback being planned (or was planned) and the shortened season.

Also, the Admirals are going to need some help. We could truly strip them. I would expect Jamie Allison to move back to the Ads to take Hamhuis's slot, but if Hutch is called up - I'm not sure what will happen.

Will Lilja be accepted on the team?

What about Mukachev (signed - won't come over.....), Stehlik (Poile pursued signing him very heavily before the lockout - will we try to sign him......I think we should.....beast of a man), Niskala, Safronov........
