I always like to think redden might leave by next year or at least the year after that too that'd be really really awesome

looking at the 2012 ufa list, not too many forwards jump out at me.
good fits for this team are: Sharp or Umberger. Maybe Doan or Kunitz.

I'd rather the NYR bring in someone that fits our system more than a Hemsky type player.

We can always make a trade for Iginla...
I think TRADE is the most likely next big step for us.

But Shane Doan for like a little less dollar but same length (late 30s), say like 9m per early but like 5.8m caphit is a great option on the market.

To be realistic, our skill will have to come from smaller and weaker players. A kid like Doan could help those types. And if you can get the caphit <6m, the prize is low for veteran leadership. Doan could become a long term Shanny like signing.

I think Shane Doan would be a great fit for this team. I'd give him 2 years/$9 million ($4.5m cap hit)

Dubinsky / Richards / Gaborik
Doan / Anisimov / Callahan
Kreider / Stepan / Boyle
Prust / Rupp / Weise

Staal / Girardi
McDonagh / Sauer
Erixon / Del Zotto
Eminger or Vtank as 7th

Hank
Biron


Well that would make this Ranger fan very happy

Let me get this straight. Are you advocating giving Shane Doan a 35+ contract that is long enough to keep the cap hit <6 mil but pays him 9 mil in each of the first 2 or 3 years. This is absurd!

This seems much more realistic. Problem is Doan is a RW. Would rather try to get Parise. We should have held off on Gaborik and gone for Kovalchuk, everyone knew he was going to be out of Atl/Wpg.

We don't need Doan. We already have a much younger doan named Ryan Callahan.
