Instead of the "home run" I'm thinking maybe moves along the lines of
Sign Bryan Allen 2 years @ $3.2 million
Sign Josh Harding 2-3 years @ $3 million per
Move Nik Khabibulin to Tampa or a team looking to get to the cap floor.
Would be an OK off-season. Maybe target a Jordin Tootoo also.
1.) Wouldn't Tampa just sign Harding if it worked out like that?
2.) I'd love to get Allen, but rumor has it that he wants $4M+. Not only that, but he's limited. No doubt he's terrific defensively, but after picking up Shultz, we need to add someone back there with some semblance of offense.

Would you guys consider this if we land 1st overall?
To LA: 1st overall, Gagner
To EDM: Kopitar, Voinov
Supposedly Kopitar and Sutter aren't seeing eye-to-eye. As much as Gagner has progressed, the chance of having a 1-2 punch of RNH, Kopitar down the middle would surely be too much to resist. Voinov wouldn't be as complete as the high end Dmen in this draft, but he'd bring the same level of offence and could play right now. LA also gains significant cap room should they pursue Suter. They also get Carter back down the middle.
