WOOOOOOT!!!! Great NEWS! Lovely lovely lovely. Looks like it's looking up for the Jets with this free agent frenzy. Awesome job by Chevy to bring Poni and Jokinen over. Pretty pumped for the new season!

I agree. At least to start the year. If the LLW starts slow than move Little, but I'd give that line the opportunity to keep playing together

I was thinking:

Kane - Jokinen - Wheeler
Ladd - Little - Burmistrov
Poni - Antropov - Mittens(?)
Machacek - Slates - Thorburn

Keeps atleast Ladd and Little together. The top line looks pretty sexy though.

The Trade boards gave me an "Olli's better!" chant idea when we play the Hurricanes. (Jussi Jokinen)

I'm not sure that is the best move either. Wheeler is a pretty good playmaker and compliments the mostly "purer" goal scorers in Ladd and Little nicely.

that looks like a big upgrade over last year....yes please! (or any combination thereof..might have to experiment with the top6)

(i'd like a confirmation we got Kane though >.< just to get it out of the mind)

He's an RFA still. Not going anywhere if we dont want him to.

Well, this was the guy I wanted, so I'm pumped! 2 years is perfect, too.

Now let's nail down Wellwood and a goalie!

Not sure if Wellwood will be brought back given we've got Miettinen and all, but we'll see. I like Wellwood and think he fits in quite well here.
If we can get Wellwood signed and baring any other moves I like this lineup.

Mittens can be the 13th, and if they want to keep up another forward it could be Cormier (unless it would be better to keep him in St. Johns for more experience).

And that is without even considering the possibility that Scheifele or Telegin make the team.

I know, but just a confirmation saying "Kane has resigned" would be awesome

I agree. Considering how well we were scoring at the end of the season with LLW I 'd be surprised if Noel breaks them up at the beginning of the season. And we also wanna see how Kane plays with Olli

Ladd - Little - Wheeler
Kane - Olli - Wellwood/FA RW

The main thing I am happy with right now is this move gives Noel options and takes a lot of pressure off of Little.

I bet Kane and Wheeler are on the top PP together. 5 on 5 I see Ladd-Little-Wheeler together, Kane and Jokinen with a Burmi/Mittens/Wellwood type on the RW. Antropov and Poni hold down the 3rd line, maybe with a rookie (Machacek, Schiefele if he makes the team).
