At least Tallon learned from his Campbell mistake so he won't make the same mistake twice with Garrison.

Petrell, Hordichuk

Smid - Petry
Whitney - J. Schultz
FA/TRADE - N. Schultz

Dubnyk
Khabi

Potter is waived. Peckham traded in a minor deal.

Go after Carle or Garrison (if the price isn't as crazy as reported). If that doesn't work out go after Salvador. A strong shutdown guy who had a great playoffs. If THAT doesn't work out then trade for Hjalmarsson.

Would Chicago take something like Omark and 2nd?

Tambo needs to add 1 more defenseman to the group if we want to compete for the playoffs. We cannot settle for Sutton, Potter or Peckham in our top 6 D. Just my opinion.

For a guy who played tough minutes for Canes, nice term and value.

Makes us even for Schultz right?

I think we've seen the best Canucks teams the last two years. They didn't win anything and it'll probably be a gradual decline from this point on.

Tambo should have been in on Foligno or Latendresse IMO. Latendresse is the kind of high risk high reward player you take a shot at. Foligno would have looked good here on any of the top 3 lines. Were short LW's and Hartikainen can't be expected to be our 1st or 2nd line LW.

I'm one of the guys that wants Carle on the team, but with the bidding up to insane levels on Garrison, who's to say Carle with a longer track record of production and effective play isn't going to demand more? You start getting up at 5.5+ million per year on players and you start having to factor them into contracts for our top young players, and you just don't do that for middle of the road players no matter how much they'll help in the present.

Bouwmeester and his short term contract is looking more appealing than what it'd take to get some of the guys signed to a contract this UFA year.

i think paajarvi will do well this season, the ahl imo sure helped, with his off-season training im going to say he goes back into form like he was in 10/11 but better and will be good for us on second/third line lw position.

or he might just stay in ahl 1 more season.

Harti did play well on the 1st line when he was called up last yr....did well to open space for RNH and Ebs

They'll still run away with the division rather easily... but instead of finishing first in the conference and league they'll be... maybe third in the West.

Paajarvi is fine if we want to be a butter soft team again. We need to add some more JAM and I'd be fine with moving Paajarvi to do it.

Latendresse, maybe (if he didn't want to play close to home). But for Foligno, do we really want to trade a top 4 defenseman for a winger?

They have an opportunity to inject some talent with the Luongo trade, but it's not going to be easy. My guess is they don't get much back for him. Beyond that, I'd say next year basically hinges on a couple of disappointments, Kesler and Edler, returning to form. Big question marks imo. I know some people are questioning Schneider, but assuming he stays healthy I think he'll do fine.

You mean no 3-peat for the President's Trophy Champions! Say it ain't so!

I don't see Methot as a top 4 d man. Maybe a good #5.

Forget about moving the kid. Let him develop in the AHL for another year and some. Then look to bring him to the NHL level. Shift him to center!

4.6 million a year for garrison.

Not too bad. Suspect a hometown discount since there were rumblings a month ago that he wanted to play there.

I'm surprised Kuba got 4m. Seems 500k~ too much. Also, I was kinda shocked Whitney went to Dallas.

Garrison's contract makes the Wideman deal look ridiculous.
