I think this year is the beginning of a small trend where the FA world is gonna be very shallow. Building a team is becoming more and more about good drafting and handling the assets well. With the cap about to ballon the next few years, (the very few) FA's will demand ridiculous numbers (see Laich/Montador/Erhoff/etc and they didn't even hit the market).

I could easily see Brad getting a 10/70 contract.

Something centered around Loktionov + d prospect would be my guess

This year is just kinda of week. next year FA club is pretty nice.. I think DL was counting on Smyth's contract to end next year so he would be in a prime position. Add in the fact that he was banking on an extended playoff run, we would of been prime targets for a good 6mil LWer.. But meh... DL knows what hes doing.

I will wait until Dean pulls a trick out of his own playbook and goes after someone he knows. That being

1) Gagne - UFA - fits team need
2) Hartnell - buzz that Philly may want to move him to offer sheet Stamkos (seems far out)

I wonder if he will make a move before the Doughty deal is settled.

It'd be a mistake if we didn't. All the top guys would pass us over.

We have enough flexibility, plus they know the number Doughty is looking for, so it is not like they don't know how much they are guaranteed to be playing with.

i like pretending that the 6.8 m rumour was created by Lombardi to make other GMs believe we wont be signing Richards. Then Drew signs for 4.8 and we create the most competitive side in the NHL.

We could sign Richards and not worry about Doughty.

AT WORST, THE VERY WORST, some team offer sheets Doughty, then Dean will just send Stoll out and use Loktionov as our 3rd line center. A bunch of teams would want Stoll as their 2nd line center.

I would be willing to overpay to see the Stanley Cup in L.A. finally.

For years I've taken today off of work, and I'm just not doing it today. Now watch the Kings sign Richards just to spite me.

Am I the only one who thinks DL could be looking to pick up another d-man? I could see Hejda or someone like that for depth.

I was thinking he might... I was actually talking to Telo`s about it. As much as we all want to see one of our young talented D Prospects he might be looking to go for a Vet or a mid vet.

When Zeus is like the 3rd best UFA center on the market, you know Brad Richards is gonna get overpaid.

Leafs, Sabres and Rangers aren't going anywhere without a #1 center. I expect one of them to take a 8.5 cap hit with a gigantic front loaded contract that keeps Richards till he's 41.

If the Sabres sign Richards, they will be over the cap limit with only 18 players signed.

Let's start the Vanek to LA for Stoll+ rumors.
