What do we do?

Who do we put on our top pairing with EJ?
1. Trade for one, suter would be the best option but about a 0.2% chance of happening, and there are other guy who we could trade for, who do you think would be best?

2. Sign UFA. there are a few good guys, i think Markov would be good, who do you think would fit best out of the UFA crop this year?

3. roll out one of our own guys, Quincey has been mentioned alot, Wilson, and Gaunce are long shots

What would you like to see? what do you think will happen?

4. Draft Larsson and wait a year.

markov's as likely to finish a season as mueller is, no go for him

wouldnt mind a guy like jovo or a jovo type player/ vet to help ej along, i dont know who he was paired with in stl, but maybe a mentor type player if we go the ufa route

i however think he's ready to be our number 1, and will be the best pairing, regardless who he's with(with the exception of hunwick) quincey/wilson/ whoever

i really liked liles/OB and hope we start with that as a pairing for next year.

If they draft Larsson and he starts as an Av next year, he should probably start on the 3rd pairing and work his way up, IMO.

the top UFA options are Markov, Jovo, Brewer(his partner in STL) or Pitkanen, also McCabe might be okay. and i also really like the liles/OB pairing

I agree if they do draft Larsson the D pairings will be

Quincey/????-EJ
Liles-OB
Quincey/Gaunce/Wilson-Larsson

Let him play another year in Sweden or a year in the AHL. I don't want to be Columbus and have players not develop properly because they were rushed.

As I think they're taking a forward at the #2, I would expect Quincey. If they happen to go UFA (lol yeah right) I could see Brewer or Pitkanen. If they go trade, with Philly likely signing Bryzgalov, I would love to filch Coburn and slot him there.

I would only try to sign a goalie since they don't really have one atm and this is possible with Vokoun now. Nothing more, no overpaying for a player like Suter or whoever, we're rebuilding not competing for the cup. As you get closer to being competitive, then you address the needs.

But you should always try to move useless weight or players before they lose their value *cough*Stoa*cough*.

Didn't say I like it, but Wilson played a ton with Johnson this year. Other than Quincey and Liles (who works well with O'Byrne), there isn't another option.

yeah liles would not be a good fit with EJ, i think it will be Quincey, I think Gaunce plays a good game that would fit well with EJ's, as long as he plays a stay at home role, and makes the simple play without caughing the puck up, which i know is alot for a rookie but i feel pretty confident about gaunce

If we go UFA, I'd like Brewer. If not Quincey should do well.

Liles and OB need to stay together, I wouldn't mind EJ-Wilson, they played a ton together, and they both did well, Wilson got into the dirty areas, and sort of let EJ do his thing. We'll see what happens, its not up to us.

If we don't draft Larsson, or he doesn't play in the NHL next year (which is probably likely) i'd like to see

Quincey/UFA - EJ
Liles - O'Byrne
Wilson - Gaunce/Quincey/Elliot/Barrie

I think there's a guy named Hunwick going into UFA that would look good next to him
