there were rumours Burke tried getting him before when he just got to Toronto. I think he'd be better then Bozak on the top line. He had 20 points in 15 games two years ago. I really hope he can re bound

Lupul - Mueller - Kessel
MacArthur - Grabovski - Kulemin
Riemsdyk - Bozak - Frattin
Brown - Steckel - Armstrong

Not too bad forward group

lombo
kadri
koma

gun dion
gardiner kom
liles franson

reimer
scrivens

we gotta make so many moves to make room for people, way too much dead weight with connolly, lombardi, armstrong...mac has to go to make room for kadri or a bigger body...still missing that 1C so we can drop bozak down to 3rd line...hate goin into next season with two unproven youngsters in the most important position in hockey, really need that at least one PROVEN goalie in net
I hope we stay quiet in terms of signing free agents. Your correct in saying that we have too many guys on the team that need a spot. If we can sign Schultz, get rid of atleast 2 in LACK and give space for kadri to play the whole season then I'd be happy. Other than that we should look for a #1 goalie, which should be our top priority right now. If a trade comes where we can unload 1 of lack or trade some roster players like MacA and prospects for a #1 center then I'd do that to.

I don't really like the option of Paul Statsny who's still under contract but if we can get rid of armstrong or connolly + MacA + prospects/picks for statsny then that would be great. We'd free up some roster spots for kadri and maybe D'amigo/Ross. We could even sign a FA if the price is right.

Low risk, high reward IMO.
Didn't even know they didn't qualify him, I definitely want them to try and sign him. I cannot believe the Avs didn't qualify him. Hopefully the Leafs sign him.

We are not going to play JVR on the third line after trading schenn for him. Carlyle is going to give him plenty of time on the second line/first (if there are injuries to lupul/kessel). If he doesn't pan out after a full/close to 82 game season(without injuries) then demote him if you wish the next season.

I don't see how people are looking for top 9 wingers.

Lupul, Kessel, JVR, Kulie, Kadri, Fratting, MacArthur

We have 7 top 9 six wingers, we only need 6.

If we can get Prust for our 4th line wing or maybe Parros. We have no need for wingers anymore.

He did look good during that stretch, but small sample size.

Honestly, I hope Burke avoids those depth signings on bloated contracts that have done nothing to help the team. Learn from past mistakes Burke.

Peter Mueller is a friend of Phil Kessel as they played for the USNTDP Under-18 Team back in 2004-2005
