im looking for an NHL back up goalie and looking to move a forward to a top 4 D
I dont believe in Nino at all...and I get Ballard off the books and Komisarek is gone after this year. I will have a young, controllable defence of Schultz, Bouwmeester, Hamonic, Rielly, Orlov and Clendening in the future when my team is competitive.
I'm ok with you guys offering prospects that are unsigned contracts. But if you are offering me contracts to players that are actually useful to a team now I'm most likely going to turn it down and assign the unsigned players to terrible teams or teams with no GM's. Usually if a decent team signs someone like a Cervenka they are just going to trade him anyways. I want these players going to teams where they will be useful.
I wasnt going to trade Cervenka, I want to move Kostitsyn, Fisher, Bouchard and Connolly...but i am ok with that.
On another note, looking to move 1 dman, either Bouwmeester, Stuart, Morris, Kuba or Komisarek and will also move any forward not named Fleischmann, Brunner or Stalberg. I am also open to moving any prospect not named Kreider, Rielly, Clendening, Schultz and Vatanen....I have too many dmen and too many forwards so looking to package several off...not asking for a lot in return for most things!
Something I think we should consider next year for free agency is a veto to free agent signings. I think some of the cap hits for some players are very generous and make it easy for some teams to just stack their roster. I think if a team signs say Sidney Crosby for a 5 year 5 million per year deal we should be able to veto it with 1/2 votes or something. Same with unfair trades. Obviously JM can have the final say or something.
