2013 Offseason

I was looking at our payroll for 2013-2014, and found that the following players will be off the books:

Connolly (4.75M)
Lupul (4.25M)
Lombardi (3.5M)
MacArthur(3.25M)
Armstrong(3M)
Bozak (1.5M)
Steckel (1.1M)

Even Tucker's 1M will be gone from the buyout.

The following players are scheduled to be UFAs:

Iginla
Perry
Getzlaf
Hartnell
Zajac
Morrow

and many other quality players.

Looks like Burke has been preparing to make big offers to Perry and Getzlaf if they don't resign. Seems like it's going to be a crazy summer.

If Lupul is healthy, and has a productive season then obviously he should be re-signed. He'll only be 29 by then, so I think a 2-year contract wouldn't be out of the question. Although in reality, he'll probably want more than that.

Other than Lupul, I'm not sure I want any of them resigned. Bozak is 50/50, hoping we have an upgrade by then.

Lupul - Getzlaf - Kessel

Won't happen, I can dream.

Imo

Steckel will be resigned, he's one of the best 4th line C in the league
Lupul will be resigned if he follows up this season with another 60 point + season.

The rest can and should probably go.

Lupul will be resigned I think, MacArthur only if all of our prospects all of a sudden suck, Bozak I don't know if he would be and lastly Steckel I think will be for his faceoffs. Stekel could be let go however if leafs management strongly feels that one of our center prospects could offer more to the table overall, he could be let go, but if we have nothing better down the middle may as well keep him.

UFA classes tend to look appealing 1-2 years in advance. Trouble is, they tend to get re-signed, often to long-term deals.

I'd be shocked if Getzlaf/Perry make it to UFA. I think Iginla is a Flame for life. Take those names away and the class is a lot less attractive, with a few valuable nuggets that the market will force teams to overpay for.

It will be nice to get some of those bloated contracts off the books though.

Im fine with Bozie. He's a really respectable forechecker, and a pretty smart player. Im also tired of turning the roster over every couple years. There needs top be some semblance of a permanent core group, and he's got tons of composure and he's a pretty mature player. Good with the press, responsible on the ice and likely re-signs for reasonable money. He's been a low maintenance player. Good signing...
