Free Agency & Trade Predictions - Who lands where?

It's that time of year again and the offseason is quickly approaching. Players will start moving again (a few already have). So, toss your predictions out there. Which UFAs sign where? Who acquires who via trade? Which RFAs, if any, change teams due to offer sheet or trade and where do they end up?

Please make these as realistic as possible, not just sending all the good players to your team or what you would like to happen. At least have them make some logical sense. Luongo to Boston is something that won't happen. If you predict a trade, you may even go as far as predicting the return but again, try to be realistic as to not upset another fan base. When we get into July we can come back to this thread and see if anyone was right.

To start, I think Buffalo is fairly quiet as far as free agency so. Maybe not as far as trades go but for free agency I think we sign someone like Boyd Gordon or Matt Hendricks. We need a bottom-six center, preferably a good faceoff-man as well who can do some PKing.

Flames Trade:
Cammalleri
Tanguay
Sarich

Acquire:
Burmistrov from WPG

All 3 trades are likely separate (Above is NOT a proposal to acquire Burmistrov for Tangs and Cammy)

Sign:
Fistric/O'Byrne/Ference/White/Scuderi (two of them)
B Gordon/Nystrom (one of them, maybe both)
Horton/Clarkson/Bickell (one of them)
Weiss/Filpulla/B Richards (after a buy-out)/Bozak (one of them)
Ramo

Resign (Just our NHL level players):
Backlund (1.5 - 2 mil AAV 2-3 years)
Bouma (600k 1 yr)
Brodie ( 2.5 mil AAV 2 years)
Butler (1.5 - 2 mil AAV 1-2 years, rather trade but Feaster likes him and we are trying to be realistic here)
Byron (600k 1 yr)
Cundari (800k 1 yr)
Mcgrattan (600k 1yr)

Another suggestion is to just keep Tanguay and not sign one of Clarkson/Horton/Bickell (Although id rather have all 3 of those guys, just maybe not for the overpay they'd get)

Bartschi - Weiss/Filpulla/B Richards - Horton/Clarkson/Bickell
Hudler - Backlund - Stempniak
Glencross - Burmistrov - Stajan
Nystrom - Gordon - Mcrgattan
Jackman/Reinhart/Jones/Bouma/Horak

Giordano - Brodie
Wideman - Fistric/O'Byrne/Ference/White/Scuderi
Cundari - Fistric/O'Byrne/Ference/White/Scuderi
Butler/Smith

Ramo
Berra/Macdonald

I think the Jets will be pretty quiet in FA.

We would likely be in the market for the following:

A third line LW if they don't resign Tangradi

My guess: Tangradi

A third/fourth line energy guy for $1.0-1.5M

My guess: Colby Armstrong

A cheap (<$3M) winger to play in a scoring role opposite Kane

My guess: Victor Stalberg

A left handed defense-first defenseman to replace Ron Hainsey

My guess: Andrew Ference

A goalie that can potentially steal from starts from Pavelec as oppose to a league minimum backup

My guess: We fail to make it happen and resign Montoya

If Burmistrov ends up being dealt at the draft, that could change things. Hopefully not though.

Dream scenario for me would be getting a younger scorer like Brunner from Detroit, but I think a less patient cap team will likely offer him a Leino type deal if he makes it to UFA.

  • Re-sign Smith 3 years x 1.583M per year
  • Re-sign Kindl 2 years x 1.35M per year
  • Re-sign Nyquist 5 years x 2.75M per year
  • Re-sign Brunner 3 years x 3M per year
  • Re-sign Andersson 2 years x 850K per year
  • Re-sign Cleary 2 years x 1.2M per year
  • Sign Weiss to a 4 year x 5.35M per year
  • If Weiss doesn't sign go after Horton, offer him the same contract, 5.35M x 4 years.

Waive Emmerton (only if Helm is ready to go at training camp)
Buyout/Trade Samuelsson
Waive/Trade Lashoff/Colaiacovo

Zetterberg/Franzen-Datsyuk-Brunner
Nyquist-Weiss/Zetterberg-Franzen/Horton
Cleary-Helm-Tatar
Miller-Andersson-Abdelkader
Bert-Tootoo-Eaves

Kronwall-Ericsson
Quincey-Smith
DeKeyser-Kindl
CC-Lashoff

Howard
Gus

With this lineup the Wings are 1.9M over the salary cap I just don't know who Holland would cut. I would cut Eaves+Lashoff/Colaiacovo or Tootoo but Tootoo brings us some toughness & edgeness. I also don't know if Bert will be in the lineup again but he's sticking around because he's good in shootouts.

If that's all Bickell's getting, he isn't leaving Chicago.

- compliance buy-out on K Ballard
- trade Luongo for draft picks/non-roster assets
- re-sign RFA Chris Tanev: 2 years, $3M
- re-sign RFA Dale Weise: 1 year, $700,000
- re-sign UFA Max Laperre: 3 years, $3.9M

- sign F Clarke Macarthur: 2 years, $5M
- sign F Boyd Gordon: 3 years, $6.6M
- sign D Peter Harrold: 1 year, $1M

Hamhuis-Garrison
Bieksa-Tanev
Edler-Harrold
(Corrado)

Schneider
Ericsson/Lack

The guys in the Armchair GM thread over on our boards seem to think we'll bust out some blockbuster involving Edler or Bieksa. Although its a possibility, I don't think it's as realistic as expecting Gillis to pick up another strong checking C, and a bit of a reclamation in Macarthur.

Obviously 2.5 AAV. You think Boyd Gordon is going to get 6.6 AAV on the open market? MacArthur MIGHT do this deal because the Leafs think they have lots of depth to work with considering their performance this year, however I don't see it happening as they will let Bozak walk and re-sign Mac for a bit more than 2.5 AAV. However, it's not completely inconcievable for his scenario to happen and that is what this board is for, the non-completely concievability of this event.

* I can't spell conceivable apparently. Deal with it.

Most useless thread ever. The whole Trade Rumors and Free Agent Talk forum is about prediciting free agent signings and trades.
