I would love a bromance like that to be in our favor for once. But the cost for Hall now would be absurd.

A question about Hemsky. It looks like (from CapGeek) he's starting a new 2 year $10M deal... why would he get moved?

Lou's gonna play MoneyPuck.

We just need to find a 2nd liner and a 3rd liner to combine for Poni's and Zach's 38 goals and 49 assists.

Finding 2, 19g 25a guys can't been too tough...can it?

Sign Wellwood (2yr/$1.5M per), Huselius (2yr/$3.0M per), and maybe someone like Moore (1yr/$1.0M). Players with specific skillsets that can be had for below market value.

Kovalchuk - Zajac - Huselius
Elias - Henrique - Zubrus
Wellwood - Josefson - Clarkson
Carter - Gionta/Moore - Bernier
It's funny because I was watching Moneyball when I talked about trying to replace Parise with more than one player

We've had to many bromances go the other way. We are overdue for one. I thought Suter was ours bc of the bromance.

I don't think he would. He just got re-signed, and they want him around to mentor their young superstar forwards.

I actually think Lou could get Semin if he wants him, just by going with a fact that Russian players love to stick together. He could just ask Kovy to pick up a phone while he is preparing a check ...

Don't really want Hall for the price it would cost.

It would cost Larsson for starters.

Perfect time to start planning. Have Henrique start the process.

I don't care about poaching from Edmonton. The hockey gods would not look unfavorably upon us for doing unto others has it has been done unto us. And of course, Edmonton has engaged in tanking and other shenanigans the last few years.

He is ours if Lou and VBK want him. Seriously, where is he going to go??? Detroit??? LOL Holland supposedly isn't overly thrilled with him. And Detroit isn't the city it once was in terms of attracting FAs. Phoenix???? Pittsburgh???? Why would Pitt make a sizable financial committment to another offensive player when they have clear defensive issues??? I think there could be a dark horse team like St. Louis or Winnipeg willing to overpay, but I really believe the devils are the MAJOR player if they want to be.

Carolina Hurricanes are no longer persuing Rick Nash. Cost way too high. CBJ believed to be after Jeff Skinner. Non-starter.

What the hell Howson ?

When Howson burns all his bridges and Nash just wants to leave, Lou can swoop in and outbid Ottawa and take Nash for Voltron pieces.

IMO he doesn't want to trade Nash. Nash is the one that really wants out. I dont blame Howson here. Where does Nash have a leg to stand on? He signed the long term contract, with a big cap hit.
