Any rumors suggesting Simmonds being hurt? He was invisible all playoffs

Yes, one more for both him and Hartnell.

As long as Carle is gone, I'll consider it a good off season

Btw, anyone else kinda hoping Kimmo decides to call it quits this offseason? Its painfully obvious the guy just can't play a full season anymore. This is two years in a row he's been more or less worthless in the playoffs. That 6.3 mill cap hit could go a long way toward revamping a d-core in desperate need of revamping.
Kimmo's 1 year left isn't preventing us from doing anything. There are very few options this offseason and we can already afford one at 6m with - Carle & Jagr).

Trade JvR for whatever you can get. Dont resign Carle, hus is worthless. Trade Bryz to whatever team is in on the Luongo sweepstakes and loses. Find a goalie capable of stopping the puck and knows how to make a pass to a player 5 feet away. Sign a defensive defensman, aka, Suter, and build around him.

Someone has to show Courturier where the weight room is this offseason.

Real question is: Resign Leighton or not?

I'm not sure there will be a Luongo sweepstakes. Not that many teams want a 5 mil goalie, and Bryz has a NMC.

If he wants to sign an AHL deal, why not.

Cap will go up. 5 million isnt that much. Tampa will be in on him, the Laffs will be in on him, and probably at least one more team. Everything I said was basically a joke and none of it will happen, but I wouldnt mind a few of them happening, like trading JvR

Carle: Needs to go
Jagr: I don't want to re-sign him
Kimmo: I'm not sure if he has another year left in him
Rookies: We'll be ****ed if they all have a Sophmore slump next year
Bryzgalov:...I don't even know where to begin with him
Coburn, Mez, Briere, Hartnell: I don't think they're going anywhere
Giroux: Fantastic year! I'm so proud of him!!
Talbot: great signing
Voracek: We only signed him for one year right? I'd like to see him back next year
Simmonds: Was pretty ineffective this entire post season
JVR: The CBC guys showed him wearing a slipper/protective boot today on his way to the game...so clearly he's still hurt, I'm not sure on how to assess him yet.

I really hope we find a way to get Suter...as long as it doesn't involve losing Giroux of course.

Overall I am quite pleased with the season. We are young, fun to watch and a team on the rise for once instead of old and full of UFA's. I'm also really looking forward to this years draft. Plenty of gems in the first round. I'm really curious to see how the D looks in October.

If the correct decisions are made on defence this team could be a contender next year. This is the first time I've felt that in a long time.

I would be willing to trade JVR if it got us a good puck moving D man... other than that I think he was playing hurt again.

the team performed well without him while he was out. If you can get something for him, send him out

Don't bring Jagr back.
Do some due diligence and see what the market is for Scott Hartnell.

I want Kimmo traded.
Father time has claimed him. Use money freed up from him to re-sign Carle/Grossmann or towards Sutter.

We are not giving suter 14mil per year. We have enough to sign him to 7m by not paying Carle + Jagr, we might need to clear a little more after that for breathing room, but he's been signed. Dont really see the need to dump KT, he has 1yr left anyway.

Don't remind me.
Could've had John ****ing Carlson, who everyone was begging the Flyers to draft. But nope, we gotz to have Steve Eminger.

Because without Eminger, we never could've traded Steve Downie for Matt Carle. Booya.

i actually think Jagr had good year, if you take in account he had serious injuries with groin, which was holding him back ever since, till NJ devils where he dissapeared completely.
and according to your mesuring G shouldnt be resigned as well as he did not really show up too in NJ series, just saying

When did this happen? Great news

and obviously I am not insinuating a 9+ million deal or Sutter, but I just believe Kimmo is done here. I appreciate everything he has done for this organization, but if we can move him along or he retires then I believe it's a good thing.
