It would be great if they'd take Paajarvi + for him.
I still think they are fine. They can send him to the minors and "hide" 900k of his cap hit and buy him out this summer. And if they sign Del Zotto to 4 million per year they are at 67.475 mill for their cap.

They still have just shy of 3 mill in cap space in this case for this year, and will be fine in the summer after Reddens buy out and Drurys buyout over as well.

Ah ... I didn't realize that Capgeek reflects the new CBA already.

Your'e right. The Rangers are fine unless Redden slips coming to the practice rink or something (I assume they will healthy scratch him in the AHL). Time to wrap him up in bubble wrap.

I really wish we could grab Del Zotto somehow. He would fit in here very well I think. I don't normally like PRV + proposals but I would be willing to do that to get him here (not that NY would necessarily).

Him and Ryan O'Reilly are the two RFA's that could be really good in our lineup. O'Reilly would have to see Gags going the other way though.

Then he'll do something this summer. This is Tambo's style, he does not make moves until he absolutely has to. With the cap going down after this year there might be a team or two looking to unload some salary. He'll wait until then. Also, unlike most of you I still think Whitney can rebound. A healthy, re-signed Whitney and this defense is suddenly not so bad.

I'd do PRV + 2014 first overall. I don't they think they'd bite on that, though... But he's Michael Del Zotto!!

Any idea what it would cost to pry Douglas Murray out of SJ?

Young pmd is not the type of d man we need.

I would think a Volchenkov type without the cap hit is what we need.

The thing about MDZ is that he hits a lot.. He will be up there with Smid and Volchenkov in hits if needed be.

Luongo rumor to Toronto won't fade. Burke wanted him bad and Nonis will push as well, but Canucks insist other teams are in play.

He has a great offensive game and has been working on his defense a lot. And as you said he hits a ton and isn't afraid of the physical side one bit. I don't know that there is any move we could make to make NY bite on a trade for him though. Same with O'Reilly in COL.

So thread on the main board says Carolina could make a trade, and a guess(from OP) was either McBain or Pitkanen.

Any interest in McBain? They need forwards I'd guess, so not sure what we could offer. Maybe they might have interest in MPS?

I'm still high on Gormley. I'd do Gagner + 2014 1st for him.

Would love to get Faulk from them, but he is probably off limits, like us moving Schultz, not happening......

McBain is interesting tho.

There still isn't officially a CBA. Colorado, Montreal, and New York could already have deals in place for ROR, Subban and MDZ for all we know.

Nothing official can happen until the players' vote goes through tomorrow.

Would take McBain or OReilly, if we could get both of them our team would be set I would say as they are both young also. Wonder how much OReilly wants.

if the Oilers are in a hunt for a d-man let's make it big and try to land Subban rights (Habs would though ask king's ransom and we don't have much to offer). i don't think that a player like MDZ is going to help our defense.

Just thinking that CBJ need offense so what about this:
EDM
Johansen
Nikitin
NYR or LAs 1st
CBJ
Yak
Then we can package Gagner plus for another 2nd line winger. Johansen would give us the 2nd line centreman we need, Nikitin a top 4 dman that is only 26. I think this makes our team better over all. I know Johansen is not proven yet but he would be sheltered and have some skill in Hemsky to play with.

Lol what. When is gormley, still a prospect. Worth a 50 point scorer, regular NHL center and right handed and a first ( which who knows could still be worth top 5)

Nikitin is a pylon that was lucky for the most part of last season. to think of losing Yak for a package that includes Nikitin... just painful.

I'm not to sure how much that helps up this year. Creates a big hole at Center and is Gormley even ready to play in the NHL? He looks like he needs at least another year in the AHL and I don't see him any better than Klefbom.

Welcome to HF, trade proven talent for hopes and dreams and then they will be the first posters to wonder why the team didn't make playoffs.

The positive thing is that hopefully Klefbom is what we are expecting next year and that will solve one of the problems. Hell if Whitney is healthy this year our defense is that much better.
