I would wait on Shatty. He still has to prove his defensive end play can be consistent.

Petro I agree with, but he has to want to sign. If I am Petro I wait till after or mid-way through this coming season. If he wants big pay, then he should wait.

That's a great deal for the Islanders. He's pretty responsible defensively and he could pot 10-20 goals.

Sorry Islanders At least they only have to pay him 1 mill. He still might be able to hit 35-40 points. That's worth 1 mill I'd say. Now his complete lack of defensive awareness.... Maybe just put him in for the shootout

I always thought he had a decent defensive stick. He's not going to win a bunch of board battles, but he's no Ovechkin.

Yeah, best to wait to deal with Shattenkirk.

Not sure what we'll do with Pietrangelo, I'm in the camp that would offer him a lifetime deal today, I think it sends the right messages to everyone about our commitment to building a winning team. I suspect that in November or December he'll sign the same deal Karlsson just got though.

Yeah, I was a bit harsh on him. Decent is a pretty apt way to describe his defensive game.

Looks like Matt Carkner has signed a 3 year deal with the Islanders, despite the Avalanche reporting they had done a deal with him.

you should trust our management abit more. Army and Co often have shown us that they can compensate less money with more smartness. I bet at least Petro won`t be an RFA come next years July 1st

I hope so, it would be nice to avoid a situation that the Kings had with Doughty before training camp last September

Hurricanes can afford to go after both Parise and Suter.

Glad Kuba will not be a Blue. Cmon Carle, sign elsewhere.

you were the 1st one I thought of when I read about this deal

but honestly: whats wrong with per example Carle as an upgrade for Carlo if we miss Garrison and Suter?

Minor upgrade on the ice, major upgrade in the payroll. That's my only problem with signing Carle. Too much money for someone that I honestly don't think is worth it.

Given the numbers they are throwing up in relation to Suter (12mil in each of his first two years) I don't think the Blues will be in on him at all. I still have high hopes that we land Garrison but if we don't I would absolutely take Carle of Coliacovo

If Kuba's worth $4m then Garrison is likely getting more than $5M/year IMO. I just don't know if he's worth that.

I'd be fine with Bryan Allen. He's not the ideal option but given costs, risk, etc. he might be the best option out there.

I'd be ok with Carle too although again, not ideal. Just no more Colaiacovo please! If the Blues are going to sign a d-man made of glass, just make it Sami Salo!

I'd rather just go with Cole than sign Allen. I think it has loked pretty certain for a while that Garrison is going to get north of $5m, which I think would rule us out. The talk of 5x$4m a few weeks ago surprised me, but I certainly hope it is in the range of what he is looking for.
