That was very anti climatic if you remember. The Sedins were this close to hit the market, Gaborik was available and so forth. Let's just say I didn't envision the small players collection that day.

Why now? We have Gallagher and Gionta for next season. I'd wait for 2014... DUSTIN BROWN!!!!!!!!!!!! But he'll most likely be signed by the Kings

I'd settle for Iginla at this point. And Boyd Gordon to stop our 4th line center carrousel.

While I'm at it, get Scuderi too.

It's not 100% Gionta will be ready for training camp. Are we really going to have Prust/Leblanc/Holland in our top 6 to start the season?

Alfredsson's priority is still to sign with Ott, but as of 12:01 am ET tonight his agent J.P. Barry can take calls from other teams.( con't)
Anyone? It would be better than Briere...

I bet Penner, MacArthur and Cleary are the best value free agents at forward. Any one of them should help our top 9 without hurting the team's ability to retain players going forward.

Notice Clarkson's name come up a lot around here - Devils fans seem fairly indifferent to him leaving - says something.

I think MacArthur could end up being a really smart signing.

The training camp doesn't really matter, to be honest. What matters is if he'll be healthy enough to start the season...

I don't understand why we'd have to use Prust, Leblanc or even Holland for our top 6?

If anything, Bourque can play RW perfectly fine. In that case, we'd need a left winger to take his spot.

He'll never play with us, that's for sure. lol
Plus, he's been a Sens all his life, why would he leave now, when he's 42?

If Gionta isn't ready we have

Bourque-Plekanec-Gallagher
Patches-DD-Galchenyuk on wrong side
Prust-Eller(??)-Moen
White-nothing-nothing

Next steps...

1) Sign Brière
2) Trade Gionta
3) Sign one of Clarkson or Clowe

I know Briere is great in the playoffs, but he is even more fragile than Gionta and makes Desharnais look like an elite defensive player.

If we trade Gionta, let's use the cap for someone who doesn't suck please.

Aside from Montreal, other teams with interest in Briere include I believe Nashville, NYI and NJ, among others

Maybe NJ wants to unite the dynamic Gionta bros instead.

Mark Fistric is a few days away from testing free agency.
The Oilers may see who is out there and what their options are first, but it's possible they will circle back to him if he's still available. In 25 games with Edmonton, Fistric posted six assists, 88 hits, 53 blocks and a plus-6 rating.

Would be a nice fit here with Emelin out.

After witnessing the Lecavalier ordeal, I expect that we will be making lateral prospect trades between now and the start of the season.

I agree with you about MacArthur. Funny Toronto didn't re-sign him.

Yup, I wanted this player before EDM got him because he was undervalued in my view...however the Oilers letting him walk MUST mean they are trying to get someone better and/or do not wish to meet his wage demands...

Same. But I'm not expecting much. Bergevin will probably get some depth players.

Bergevin doesn't seem to be a shaker, so don't expect miracles.

I watched quite a few Oilers games and he wasn't the same after he attempted a check and ran into the boards and hurt his back/tailbone. Great crease clearer but once Emelin comes back would probably be delegated to 7th defenseman status. I am always skeptical when a team such as Edmonton releases or doesn't sign a player like Fistric because they desperately need a physical presence on the back end. They also let Teubert go; another physical player that just was lost on their back end.

I always liked Dan Cleary. He is getting up there, though, isnt he?

MacArthur had a couple 20 goal season in the past few years. Might not be a bad addition.
