Worst Case Scenario ( For this offseason)

Ive seen so many rosters with best case scenarios such as Getting Bryzgalov signed to a 5 mill cap hit or getting Gagne to come back and sign for about 2 mill.

What i want to know is what is your Nightmare Scenario like for this offseason?

Mine would be Signing Bryzgalov to a 6+ year 6+ mill contract and as a result having to trade Carter and Bob. Only getting Voracek and the 8th for Carter and only getting a second rounder for Bob.

Bryz walks, Vokoun tells us to 'Eff off. Bob pulls a Pelle Lindburgh forcing the team to re-sign Boucher for $3 million and having Leights battle it out to be the #1 and then making Homer trade Richards for Dwayne Roloson and a 7th round pick. Pronger doesn't recover from surgery and needs to retire and we get stuck with his cap hit for 5 more years completely crippling the team.

could be reality:

Bryz: > 5.5
Leino: unsigned
Versteeg staying
Carter trading for Voracek & 8 (Pick never breaks out)
Carle trading for 2nd or 3rd round Pick and a low budget dmen (who sucks more than Carle)


a bit of humor:

Pronger & Timonen struggle, buying Carle back and trading for Randy Jones after Matt Walker and Bartulis injured themselves by falling over their own feet.

Worst case scenario for me is if Shelly somehow gets injured during this offseason.

I'm sorry but I just don't see how we can call ourselves Stanley Cup Contenders without him on our roster.

Hmm, let's see. So we start off smooth by demoting MFL and the Blackhawks grab him for some odd reason. Great, right? Well unfortunately Bryz ends up walking and Boucher signs with the Yotes to reclaim his former glory (shutout streak lol), so we have Bob on our roster, which is fine.

Turns out that Richards and Carter getting injured was a much deeper issue, they both caught HIV from their partying and their bodies simply shut down and cannot regenerate cells fast enough to keep them healthy and are forced into early retirement.

To make matters worse, Briere and Giroux can't keep living a lie and they decide to demand a trade to Chicago so they can legally get married. Guess what's offered in return? MFL.

Pronger decides to train with Randy Jones in the offseason and is stricken down with a terrible case of awfulness and never quite recovers, thus destroying Matt Carle's career as well.

Timonen can't handle being glazed over for the captaincy in favor of Hartnell and retires early as well.

The "C" on Hartnell's chest throws off his equilibrium and he is literally incapable of skating and runs right into Bob, knocking both of them out for the season. Have no fear, MFL is here.

I think that's enough.

Look it never even crossed my mind that Paul Holmgren might run out there and sign Leighton to a two-*ing-year contract just before FA opened last year. On top of that, it never occurred to me that he would offer a 4th line goon that can't play minutes in the playoffs a 3 year contract (at a decent cap hit).

So, really, the bar with Holmgren is pretty damn high at this point... I don't think anyone can guess "worst case scenario" with some of the crap he's pulled.

He's literally capable of doing anything.

Not signing Bryzgalov. I want him in net so I do not have to see all the *****ing people do in this forum about not having a number one goal tender.

That's pretty accurate. Paul Holmgren could trade Carter to Columbus for just the 8th and then use the 8th to pick up Klotz's brother (if he has one). He signs Bryzgalov for $6.5 million/year for 5 years, only to have Bryzgalov injure himself in the first practice game. Jarkko Ruutu becomes a Flyer. The opportunities are endless.

Bryzgalov gets injured. Thats pretty much the worst case scenario.

Paul holmgren only has to do a couple of things.

1. Sign Bryz under 5.5
2. Ditch Shelley, Leighton and walker.
3. Choose one of Versteeg, Carle or Carter to leave the club.
4. Get some size back in the team.

Worst case Ontario...has to involve Brad Richards signing and Carter gone somehow. Oh, and Leighton, can't forget about Leighton.

Well said. I'm terrified of what the hell he's going to pull out of his ass this season.

Worst case scenario?

Bryzgalov walks away to sign with the Caps. Vokou resigns with Florida and the Flyers end up with Turco, Theodore or.....Boosh?! By mid season Homer decides to trade a future first round pick for Roloson.

Pronger never recovers from surgery and Kimmo gets injured early in the season. Homer decides to trade JVR for some enigmatic overpaid defenseman.

Locker room issues become a serious concern and Mike Richards is stripped of the C.

I agree. My thought is that he signs Bryz to 6 million + and then gets rid of Carle plus next year's first for Matt Walker's brother, who costs as much and is as bad. Still being over the cap, he then is forced to trade Bobrovsky plus 2 second rounders for Georges Laraque.

Holmgren is a poor manager of assests. He'll make trades when his back is against the wall in order to shed salary. I guarantee he does not get fair return for any of his trades once he signs Bryzgalov because all the teams know he needs to shed salary.

If that came to be, I'm not sure I could continue to cheer for a team who retains a brain damaged GM and who allows said GM to completely **** up a franchise.

But we could get a few first round draft picks for them! They might turn out to be point per game producers and 30 or 40 goal scorers! We could end up with players that will be as good as Richards and Carter!

Given last year, I am just holding my breath until July 2. Hopefully, Bryzgalov is not signed ahead of any salary dump. As long as Homer does not enter panic mode in the next two weeks, I think this offseason has the potential to be positive.
