I wonder if we trade Gonchar now,pick up Niskanen and someone like Simon Dupreis now to make the difference. We need two more defenceman.

Remember that buy-outs are for the next two SUMMERS so don't expect any of that in the next week. Could be wrong on that fact but I am pretty sure that is the case.

Yeah, as far as anyone can tell, since final details aren't available, the free buyouts don't kick in until June and again June 2013. So no buyouts yet.

Maybe there's going to be trades, but the numbers from the potential CBA mean that not many teams actually are forced to make moves to get over or under the caps. They're playing under a prorated 70.something million cap and no team is over that. The floor is up to 44.something and no team is under that.

I really don't think there's going to be too much movement, save the odd signing here and there to fill spaces from injury or to address depth, See Ottawa's Defense for an example.

Luongo MIGHT get moved, but I don't know if the numbers will work. Remember, there's no grace period like the offseason to get under the cap, we're operating (I assume) like it's the middle of the season for cap purposes.

Btw, how long is Cowan out for? Any chance he's back this year perhaps if we make the playoffs?

Doubtful. I don't see anyone on the roster with an unmanageable contract or one that's excessively long or over valued to warrant it.

No. The forwards are basically set.

How close are the Rangers with Redden's contract included? Because from my (admittedly spotty) info, he's back on their cap.

I don't know anything about that, but I'm excited to follow the career of his little brother; future superstar Sean Condra.

Condra2Condra in Ottawa's future?

Confer.

Not necessary. With his leg strength and stamina Erik Condra ran on the spot spinning the earth until Ottawa came to him.

In regards to buyouts, we won't see any before this season starts. It will begin this summer. I'm happy we don't have bad contracts to buy out, but it will be good for a few teams. Montreal (Gomez, Kaberle) and Rangers (Redden). I'm sure you will see a bunch of guys get bought out this summer, but I don't think Ottawa will need to do that.

It will be interesting to see how many trades are made between now and the start of the season though. We should see a few at least.

With it? They're technically over the actual cap of 60 million, but are allowed to spend to 70.2 million and even with Redden's contract they're under that by about 2 million with 13 forwards, 7 defense and 2 tenders. They do need to re-sign Del Zotto. Now, I don't know if players currently in the AHL on one-way deals will be exempted from this, if not, Redden may get a reprieve somewhere for this season. It won't be here, though. He's just too expensive and I don't think Melnyk's going to chuck that kind of cash at a guy who's a huge risk.

Gonchar was the best defenseman in the KHL. I wouldn't give him up yet.

I thought the buyouts couldn't be completed until June-July?

So let me get this straight. One way contracts count against the NHL cap no matter where they are? (Even Russia, Sweden, etc?)

And someone mentioned something about waivers changing or something?

Nope, unless of course we trade for him.

Greening and Gryba to Tampa for Malone and Aulie. Thoughts?

My personal thoughts on the proposal:

Sens definitely get better this season. Malone is better than Greening and more physical than Greening and will be for the duration of his contract. Acquiring Malone IMO makes any 3rd line he plays on dangerous, whereas Greening is more a complimentary player. Malone is a better top 6er too. Now, there's nothing I'd love more than having Greening streaking down the wing for the next 10 years, but I also feel loyalty to Alfie to surround him with talent this year. Malone is slow but he adds a certain dynamic to our team.
Aulie doesn't replace Cowen but he does fill a void physically and he has the size to clear the net and PK. He's also quite young and could be invaluable over the years as a great #6 DMan. Gryba gets a shot elsewhere in the league.

When all is said and done, this trade all depends on how Tampa values Malone. If they see value in shedding his contract, I think this goes through. If they would rather shed money elsewhere (Ohlund) and feel that they have sufficient cap space, Tampa likely doesnt make this deal.

This, I don't understand... I have been told hundred times that Bryan Murray is horrible with contracts... that he overpays each and every time... It's time to get rid of a contract but now we can't find one? Jason Spezza or Milan Michalek perhaps?

lolz, I wish fans will have smarten up with this lockout but I really doubt that it will be the case
