Ok. I got it. Specific skill set!!! Just what we need.
When he is not injured. I bet he will not last half a season.
lol. So Horton to CBJ, Alfie to Detroit. Emery to Flyers. That's all I got so far. I am thrilled we didn't sign Briere. I think that would've been a mistake.
I can't see Poile offer sheeting anyone. That doesn't seem like his style. But I would love to offer sheet Tyler Cuma. Just to do it.
Here are some other interesting options
LW Mikkel Boedker
LW Lauri Korpikoski
D Alec Martinez
RW Chris Stewart
C Bryan Little
C Alexander Burmistrov
RW Blake Wheeler
C Adam Henrique
D Justin Falk, LW Carl Hagelin, D Ryan McDonagh, D Jyri Niemi, C Derek Stepan
D Karl Alzner
C Marcus Johansson
I wouldn't might taking a shot at Henrique, but it would take too much money to get him out of NJD. He had a great rookie season, and his game in the playoffs that year was unreal. Disappointed last year, though.
I think we won't have a chance at him, but Rangers wouldn't able to match...
Henrique is on the Devils. They have about the same amount of cap space as we do, but their overall financial stability is questionable. Still, if we're going to offer sheet him it'll take a risky overpayment to get NJD to not touch it. I'm not sure that's the best idea.
I predict Columbus will have a better year than us even before they add Horton.
Probably. But when we were a very good team we didn't land any really good UFAs. Columbus got Carter when they were awful, which is anytime except last season, and are about to get Horton without even making the playoffs.
