The Free Agent Frenzy, Part 3

TGfireandice: Sounds like Devils are looking to see if they can move some salary via trade or improve via trade first.

TSNBobMcKenzie: MIN trades Devin Setoguchi to WPG for a draft pick.

We know it's not Sal because he can't move an inch anymore.

in one offseason we fixed out top 6 problem and added a young #1 goalie

A+ job from Lou

meanwhile the Rags add a 3rd liner and a 4th liner that hasn't played in a year lol

If it isn't a 1st, good trade for the Jets.

Sounds like we're trying to move Salvador/Tallinder/Volchenkov and bring back Zidlicky.

Pretty sure Lou really wants Zids back. I don't see an obvious replacement for him.

Sounds like the right move, unless a trade is possible to get someone better than Zid we should really bring him back.

A 2nd? Good deal for the Jets.

Didn't the Wild buyout Gilbert too? Bouchard, Cullen, Gilbert and now Setoguchi all out, who did they add?

Lou is pissed off. I love what he's doing with this team. Shaping up to be very complete.

Also, while this FA class wasn't very appetizing a week ago, a lot of really solid players changed teams today. Didn't realize how many there were.

A-.

Clowe is still a very big question mark due to his concussion history. They don't just vanish, you know. Even if he's 100%.

Lou obviously likes missing the playoffs as much as he likes Deron Quint and losing to the Rangers.

Jets were looking for another RW. Setoguchi fills that.

Wild also save a bit of cap room (3m) and $ for possibly trying to lock up Pominville to an extension.

Honestly, I'd just be happy with some picks right now.
If Douglas Murray can fetch 2 2nds, one of ours can pick up something.
Maybe not net that return - but it'd be nice to restock some picks for a draft where we most likely won't have a first.

Even if not to draft, they can be used as assets to acquire some finishing touches to the line up.

I'd be perfectly fine with that. But I have no idea who would take anything for our old and busted defencemen.

He brings a lot of heart and energy which is nice, but he does have some glaring deficiencies to his game as well. He may just be a numbers casualty because of the fact the second year of his deal was 2-way; he'd be the number one call up from Albany though. He'll probably see some time in both the NHL and AHL this year.

Barch is as good as gone though.

Probably a good plan to not buyout volch yet I suppose.

See if you can trade one of our million dmen for a good return and bring zidlicky back.

I take that to mean they're looking to either move salary and some defensemen in order to bring someone back/in (Zidlicky), or perhaps move multiple ones and bring in a puck-mover that way (non-Zidlicky).

Can we get a Ron Popiel + Lou Lamoriello photoshop, RG?

We'll give you a Clowe and Olesz but if you call right you, we'll throw in a Ryder.

But wait... there's more.

We're trading VOlchenkov.
