Dubi back in blue? He has only 1 goal in Columbus, you have to think they are souring on keeping him around.

Honestly, I don't even think he was that bad last year. I was certainly depressed to see him go... even if it was for my current man-crush.

Can we restructure his contract? No.

He's way too overpaid for what he provides offensively.

Rather re-trade for Artie.

3 more years at 4.2 mill = no way Dubi's coming back anytime soon.

Prospal is a UFA.. they will be looking at him AS A RENTAL.

Although he does have a NMC

Me too. May have to re-trade him in the off-season though .

That's a pretty big change. That would mean that we've overhauled, what? 50% of our roster in the year after we made the ECF? Better yet, depending on what we got back from Gaborik, we'd STILL be trying to find a #1C, more scoring up front, and a PPQB.

We could get Columbus to keep 2M of Dubi's salary and take him back lol

Also a free agent this summer I believe... could you imagine?

He's relatively cheap now and after a taste of Non Ranger land Columbus would likely re-sign with NYR for a bargain in appreciation for Slats saving him

Got to think that they're either scouting some D or bottom 6 forwards. Wouldn't be surprised if Toots comes back

Prospal could work. Gives us someone we know can play with Gaborik. However, he's much better at LW than he is at center, IMO. Keep Miller in the middle and rotate the two?

Hags - Step - Nash
Miller - Prospal - Gaborik
Pyatt - Richards - Callahan
Haley - Halpern - Powe
Asham

Not terrible. Certainly looks a bit better on paper.

I believe his cap-hit is $4.5 million long-term. Would be tough to fit in.

I know it's a giant WTF and almost back to square one, the year before last. Only instead of Gaborik there is Nash. However they also have the assets from the Gaborik trade and some cap space. If Richards is bought out the 1C hole left in the line-up is the imnediate elephant in the room again, and there is no one to fill it.

I would be. Tyutin is inferior to our top 3 and makes more money than any of them.

Completely forgot about the ability for teams to retain some cap hit in trades.

I'd be interested in Prospal if he didn't play 19 games in the Czech league. He's old as **** and wore down badly at the end of his last season here. The rest would have done him good. No interest in seeing him play center, either.

Was gonna say. Maybe somehow salary retains and some nutty deal gets done. Oh well. But in any case it has to be for either D or bottom 6, trade deadline gets closer and closer

Some around league expect Perry to get more than $9-million AAV on open market. Was always going to be harder for Ducks to re-sign.

Nash will look like a bargain compared to more than $9M for Perry.

I'd honestly prefer having him on the 3rd line LW spot than Zuccarello. Give him minimal ES time, and a ton of PP time.

He's still old as dirt, though. Would definitely not be my #1 option.

Anything above 7.8 million is almost unprecedented for a winger. That's AO money.

Would love to get Perry. At more than 9 mill he can go fly a kite.

Agreed. It's becoming quite obvious that the core of this team is Nash plus the home grown core. The cap space and assets provided by a Richards buyout and a Gaborik trade make more sense for next year and beyond - especially since we've seen that they are NOT vital to the team's success.

Core:

Nash
Steps
Hags
Cally
Miller
Kreider
Staal (assuming he can be re-signed)
McD
Girardi
Hank
Plus some combination of Fasth, Lindberg, McIlrath, Skjei, Nieves, Thomas and whichever of the longer shots develops. If Sauer or Hrivik recovers, throw them in there too, but at this point I doubt they're counting on either one.

Eminently trade-able or buyout-able:
Gabby
Richie
Boyle
MDZ (when Staal is healthy)

Everyone else is filler around the edges.

With 9 million in the bag, he's flying more than just kites.

That's why this season becomes so important. Without some valuable additions a team built around Nash isn't going to win a cup. We'd need a first line center to replace Richards. We'd need a top six winger to replace Gaborik.

Washington built around Ovechkin and still hasn't done much.
