He's only had two full seasons, and he's been solid defensively in both. I've got no illusions that he'll continue his offensive production from this year, but his career norms suggest he's very capable defensively. Yeah, it's an overpayment, but I don't see anyone comparable who can be had for much less. Do you have any suggestions?

Ideally they could use a 2LD to push Hamrlik down to the 3rd pairing

And a depth (4th line) winger.

But year, top 6 W is what they need... and probably won't get, unless they're going for Penner IMO... (Parise would be great fit, but I think he's ending up in Minnesota). I think anyone expecting the team to make a splash is going to be disappointed.

What do you guys think about Carle and his game? Worth it for the Caps to go after him?

A top 4 d-man.

No he's going to end out being overpaid at something like 5.5M/year.

I'm hoping for a legit Top 6 W and a Top 4 LD. A shutdown 3C (which would allow Laich to play on the wing in the top six, where he's more effective) would also be nice, but not likely.

Not worth it. There have also been questions about his defense being Wideman-like at times.

Obviously things can change quick, but it appears Brodeur, Parise, Hedberg, Ponikarovsky, Salvador and Sykora will all test free agency.
Looks like a mass exodus of Devils.

When he wants 24M in just signing bonuses in the next two years? Keep dreaming!

Changed it to 35. I don't know, 7 mill a year sounds like a fair price that could happen.

He wants a 12M signing bonus this year and 12M signing bonus next July 1st. GMGM/Ted will never shell out that kinda cash.

He wouldn't be disappointed with this lineup?

Marcus Johansson ($0.900m) / Nicklas Backstrom ($6.700m) / Alex Ovechkin ($9.538m)
Brooks Laich ($4.500m) / Mike Ribeiro ($5.000m) / Troy Brouwer ($2.350m)
Jason Chimera ($1.750m) / Jay Beagle ($0.825m) / Joel Ward ($3.000m)
Matt Hendricks ($0.825m) / Mattias Sjogren ($0.900m) / Mathieu Perreault ($0.825m)

Karl Alzner ($1.285m) / John Carlson ($2.000m)
Roman Hamrlik ($3.500m) / Mike Green ($5.000m)
Jeff Schultz ($2.750m) / Dmitry Orlov ($0.900m)
John Erskine ($1.500m) /

Braden Holtby ($0.638m)
Michal Neuvirth ($1.150m)

CAP SPACE (21-man roster): $14,130,428

That looks like a recipe for mediocrity if I've ever seen one. God I hope he was just ************ there.

Don't listen to McPhee. That's who he is.

We will have at least 14 million in cap space after everyone is signed.

You think he is just gonna let that go with all our UFA being gone too?

He will sign someone

I can never tell with Mafki. I hope for a few, but seem to expect less. They have plenty of money to deal with.

I think they have every eastern UFA with a highlight reel against the South East. First is the Caps, then its the Canes, and then it s the Jets.

I think that they've just got too much cap space to not spend though... Probably around 16 Million (Poti on LTIR), after re-signing Green (~5 Million), Carlson (~2.5), Beagle (~825,000), & Perreault (~825,000).

He was confident with that team at the trade deadline last year. So why not now with a new coach that wants to push the envelope more? I agree with you but your are talking about a guy who hates free agency and even more so after being burned by Hamrlik and Ward contracts.

Watching these Parise highlights is killing me because he's exactly what this team needs but it will never happen

Hasn't GMGM said something similar every year?

Just leveraging and keeping expectations low.
