RFA Defensemen

Jay Bouwmeester, Shea Weber, and Ryan Suter are 3 of the big name young defenders that will be RFA's this offseason.

I say Sather should make a move for Bouwmeester or Weber.

What do you all think about it? Depending on the contract, and the compensation we have to give up, do you think it would be worth it? What could these guys end up going for?

It's not exactly a given that these guys will hit restricted free agency, but it sure is getting close.

one other one i believe is going to RFA is Dustin Byfuglien

i think he will only get better
i doubt though, we'd be able to pay a reasonable price without chicago matching

I'd seriously throw a huge party and invite all of you clowns if we could somehow end up with Shea Weber.

don't see it happening, but a mean can dream.

J-Bo could be realistic, but it would have to be through a trade. He's not worth 4 firsts. I'd give up the picks in a heartbeat for Weber.

Exactly. I'm sure Sather will look into it, but it's really wishful thinking if you think that we have a chance at getting any of them.

i think the most realistic would be suter, because nashville will probably not match b/c of weber, and buow is one of floridas only briht spots

id definetly make a pitch for any one of them though, as long as it is only the 1,2,3 compensation. no way you give up 4 1sts unless you get back an immediate superstar, which none of those guys are(yet?)

As long as Henrik is our goalie, and Vally the backup in case Henrik goes down, I can see the Rangers picking between 17-23 of the first round, if not lower, for a few years to come.

For Bouwmeester or Weber, they are worth the picks. Period.

Man I'd love Bouwmeester or Byfuglien. It seemed like Byfuglien scored a goal every time I tuned in to a Blackhawks game.

Don't let the stats fool you. He scored a lot of those goals playing on the wing. But hey, a guy who can be a power forward or a defenseman never hurts! No way Chicago lets him get away though.

Look at some of the RFA offers that have been made in the last two years, then compare to what it would take for a player like Weber or bouwmeester. Can we fit a contract like that on our roster? I didn't think so either

Trade is a possibility, but be preapared to give up some of our good young talent (and I don't mean dawes, callahan, tyutin)

I'd take any of them on this team.

I think they'd be extremely expensive, but absolutely worth it IMO. Those are the kinds of guys you build your team around. Adding any of those 3 to our blue line gives us a great defensive lineup for the next decade.

Staal-Weber pair will only come to fruition in nhl 09, sadly.

I think Fischler is right saying the Ranger might target Campbell. We need an established offensive D'man to give our pp unit a 2nd option (opposite the Jagr/gomez low cycle)

Byfugs, Bouw and Weber are realistic targets as well.

Still come to think we got rid oF Zidlicky.....

I don't know about that much... the most I give him is 4-5 mill.

Even at that point, I think Nashville will end up matching.

I see Suter being the odd man out.

I'd love to get any of these guys, but realistically our best bet is to go get Campbell. Pretty much like what London Ranger said.

With the amount of money he's going to ask for, I'm almost more comfortable in trying to make a trade for Kaberle.

I feel like SJ is going to sign him and try to move some of their other young defensemen for some role players.

if the rangers could throw 30 million for 5-6 years at either weber or bouwmeester i think it should be done....however, i think the rangers should talk to that team first to see if they would rather get some players and a pick instead of all of those first rounders.....i would rather trade a couple roster players and a few prospects and a couple picks than 4-5 first rounders

If we throw a huge contract at an RFA defenseman now aren't we inviting people to have an open season on Staal later? Is that really a smart move? I don't want anybody touching him.

i think i would rather go for kaberle as his contract is only $4.250m for the next 3yrs where as any of the players mentioned apart from byfuglien and suter would command more, plus i am pretty sure most of those teams are fine with cap room so they would most likely match.

the money from malik and mara's contract more than covers kaberle's that is if mara is not re-signed which i dont think he will be.

What would we have to give up to get Kaberle though? Such a valuable defensemen on such a good contract would seem to allow Toronto to demand guys like Sanguinetti who I just don't want to part with.

i wouldn't trade guys like cherepanov, staal, sanguinetti for him but there would be no harm in finding out what they would be willing to give him up for.

i wouldn't be surprised if sather had asked at the deadline but was scared of by the leafs demands, personally i would try do something round tyutin + prospect + pick but whether the leafs would take a package with that is debatable.

the leafs have next to no prospects and a defense that is vastly overpaid, i admit kaberle is the best d-man and contract they have but if they lost kaberle's $4.250m and kubina's $5m then thats $9.250m they have shed. i read kubina as he has a two month window where he can be traded even though he has a ntc.
