Murray expressed interest in both Samuelsson and Langenbrunner last time they were UFA's. Wouldn't be surprised to see either of them ending up in Anaheim. I know Florida offered Samuelsson a contract, and seems most Blues fans want to keep Langenbrunner in St. Louis.

If cap floor drops under a new CBA then we'll more then likely reach it with a couple of players.

No need to massively overpay to reach current cap floor when it's likely not going to be cap floor come the season.

Though I would like to see some action today in terms of Jokinen etc

As he probably should. There will be some ugly contracts out there when this is all over. Anyhow, here is my wishlist:

1) Suter (one can dream)
2) Jokinen (would probably be a decent 2nd line center for a few years)
3) Pyatt (some size and grit in the bottom-six would be nice)

1) I would be extremely happy and **** all over my keyboard
2) Would be cool
3) At least Murray addresses a team need

Really would like Suter - would help so many things. Kinda meh wrt Joker, but wouldn't be upset if they signed him. He's the best C out there I guess.

Gotta admit I'm pretty excited for this.

a) I missed this event last year due to work.

b) Even if the Ducks miss out on every top free agent, the salary space is still there. The Ducks should be rather active (compared to the last 4-5 years) on the market the next couple of weeks.

Did we lose yet?

I had a dream last night where Edmonton signed Suter, Parise, and Jokinen, traded a 7th for Luongo, then was found to have tampered with everyone and the franchise was forcibly relocated to Quebec.

I think my subconscious is angry.


I think there's going to be money spent because there has to be, but I have no optimism left in me about it going well.

Well, it's something I guess

That's how I feel as well. Murray, please prove me wrong.

If we get Carle then I am praying for a lockout.

I'd love to get Konopka back. I could live without Carle and Jokinen, though.

No worries about reaching cap floor. We have like what? 12-14 players signed?

At least he's mean.

Bob Murray is targeting: Every player who gets bought out.

Even Sexton will get a new 4yr $12m one-way contract.

14 based on Capgeek, but they don't include Palmieri, Vatanen, Holland, or Etem (2-3 of the 4 will be on the team IMO) or Bonino. So it's more likely 16-17 players under contract, hopefully plus one for Selanne for 17-18, at a combined cost of 6-8M. They still need to spend 6-8M just to hit the floor.

Wouldn't surprise me if we end up signing another 3A center (Koivu/Arnott). Really, if Murray can't sign Jokinen there's no other choice unless he goes the trade route. I would be ok with Getzlaf/Koivu/Arnott/Bonino as our centers if we can some quality guys on defense/wings.

Well that's just stupid.



They'd clearly go to Seattle.

When comparing Rucchin's 164 PIM's to Arnott's career 1216 PIM's I can see how you'd come to that conclusion.

Whis list:

Ryan Suter -He would make us so much better and we have the money to sign him. Do it BOB!!!

Dustin Penner - I actually think that we will sign him to a 1 year deal worty 2,5-3. That would be a good signing.

Colby Armstrong - A hardworking winger att plays physical. Would help us.

Jason Garisson - A great 2 way defender that has good size. I think he will be pretty overpaid though

Arnott - He would give us good depth in the middle.

A player that i really dont want is Carle. I have a bad feeling that Bob wil sign him to a 4-5 year del worth 25m.

Edit: Konopka would be really really nice as a 4 line center.
