Needs: #1 d-man, and possibly another top 4 d-man, Draft picks to continue the restocking the lowell.

Dont need: Any fowards, i think the devils have a pretty good group right now. Also no more bottom pairing d-men

Tradeable assets: Zajac, Oduya, Zubrus, Greene, Gionta, and maybe more depending on who the devs are trading for. IMO none of these guys go unless a top 4 D-man comes back in return(most obviously would be packaged in a deal)

Phoenix Coyotes

NEEDS:

1. Bottom pairing, veteren, defensive defenseman. Someone to hold Yandle's hand a little better than David Hale is probably capable of. Someone who's a little gritty, and willing to stick up for themselves, and their teammate would also be nice. He also must be able to help out on the PK and not cost a fortune in terms of salary.

2. Veteren fourth line center that's wins a very good percentage of their faceoffs and is a quality penalty killer. A little grit would also be appreciated, as well as a solid forechecking game. Solid skating would also be nice. Again, can't be paid a whole lot.

ASSETS:

1. Steve Reinprecht. 32 years old, 2 million dollar cap hit, last year of his contract, can play all three forward positions equally effectively, is equally good in all three zones, quiet veteren leader, Stanley Cup champion, .65 points per game average as a Phoenix Coyote.

DON'T NEEDS:

1. First, second, or third line centers.

2. Veteren top four defenseman.

3. Veteren goaltenders.

4. Salary.

.
McAmmond is a PK'er, center at only .875 cap hit for one more year - and he is good on the shootout - sound positionally and has tons of speed

I don't think the Habs fit this template very well, because I don't see them being in a position to try to address any of their needs beyond what they've already done in the offseason. That said...

NEEDS (well... nice-to-haves anyway...)
1. Superstar gamebreaking elite forward, preferably centre.
2. Grit/physicality up front that is talented enough to play top-6.
3. Bona fide shutdown defensive forward/faceoff stud.
4. Elite #3-4 defenseman to pair with Hamrlik and round out our top-4 in spectacular fashion.

ASSETS:
None that we're ready to part with at this time. (I don't think Mathieu Dandenault counts as an asset! ).

DON'T NEEDS:
1. Futures of any kind (picks, prospects).
2. Non-elite and softish scoring wingers.
3. 4th line grinders of any kind.
4. Bottom pairing defensemen of any kind.
5. Generic depth of any kind.

Based on the mismatch there between the "NEEDS" and the "ASSETS", I think the gameplan for the Habs will be to develop some existing internal prospect assets into filling needs #2-4, and once again next summer looking at the FA market for need #1.

Florida Panthers:

Needs:
1) Scoring up front. We have plenty of promising youth in Olesz, Weiss, Matthias, Frolik, Horton and Booth, who all project to be solid top 6 forwards in their prime. But these guys are still developing and it will take a few years for most of them to play up to their potential. We signed Cory Stillman in the offseason, which should help quite a bit, but scoring is still a big question mark.

2) Sign Jay Bouwmeester. This goes without saying and doesn't need much of an explanation.

Tradeable assets and/or Don't needs:
1) Jay Bouwmeester, provided he doesn't sign long-term by the trade deadline. Hopefully we can score a top 4 defenseman and a scoring forward for him, both around the 22-25 year old range.

2) Depth forwards. Guys like Dvorak, Zednik, and Peltonen. None of these guys fit the long-term plans for the Panthers, but non really have much trade value. They all can pop in a few points and contribute in other areas, but it would be tough to find any takers for these guys.

3) Depth defensemen. Namely Karlis Skrastins and Cory Murphy. Currently, we have Bouwmeester, McCabe, Allen, and Ballard as a top 4. Noah Welch should also see some real NHL minutes. All this leaves the shot-blocking Skrastins and the diminutive PP specialist Murphy out in the cold. Again, neither of these guys have much trade value so shouldn't really see a significant return.

4) Goalies. We have a great tandem in Vokoun and Anderson, who has proven to be a solid backup. These guys should be with us for the next few years, at which point Markstrom will hopefully be ready for NHL duty.

Needs: top-6 winger talent, preferably a LW who plays a power forward game. Also, a top pair shut down D-man would be nice. Back-up goalie. (the second two aren't really pressing needs for now.)

Don't need: Defensive Depth, centers, bottom 6 forwards, starting goalie.

Tradeable assets: Tyler Kennedy, Darryl Sydor, draft picks.

Washington Capitals (currently sitting ~$2.6 million over the salary cap, icing one of several default roster possibilities)

Needs:
- Shorten the roster to a 22-man roster (13 F, 7 D, 2 G).
- Make room for youth on the roster (cap-friendly salaries), especially at defense.
- Place Brian Pothier on LTIR, to gain allowance to go $2.5M over the salary cap.
- Cap space to fit Karl Alzner into the lineup if/when he makes the team out of camp, have flexibility during the year, and make deadline deal(s).

- Veteran top-four defenseman (although there is no cap space to add one).
- Proven scoring winger (although there is no cap space to add one).

Don't Needs: Scoring-line centers, prospects, NHL or prospect goaltenders

Valuable Assets (Not Tradeable):
- LW Alexander Ovechkin
- RW/LW Alexander Semin
- C Nicklas Backstrom
- C Sergei Fedorov
- D Mike Green
- D Karl Alzner
- Brooks Laich (probably)
- Eric Fehr (probably)

Tradeable Assets:
- RW/C Viktor Kozlov (IMO, the most likely to go)
- C Michael Nylander (but he has a NMC and is happy)
- RW Chris Clark (team captain, but didn't play during last year's playoff run)
- D Shaone Morrisonn
- LW/RW Tomas Fleischmann
- C Boyd Gordon
- Draft picks
- Several prospect defensemen

In reality, what the Caps need to do is trade Kozlov for a second or third rounder, and they're set.

Boston Bruins

NEEDS:
1. Top-4 puckmoving defenseman
2. Speedy two-way defenseman
3. Ideally a big veteran powerforward
4. Ideally a stud defensive prospect

ASSETS:
1. Andrew Alberts (big, young, tough stay-at-home top-4 defenseman who skates well and isn’t afraid to drop`em)

4. Possibly Mark Stuart if price is right (tough stay-at-homer with Jason Smith-like potential)
5. Possibly Manny Fernandez if price is right (and if Tuuka Rask is ready)
6. Matt Lashoff (former 1st round pick who’s a big, slick, puckmoving D-man yet to make the NHL)

8. Possibly a young aggressive checking center with offensive upside like Nokelainen or Sobotka
9. Assorted forward prospects (Karsums, Marchand, etc and some for right price like Hamill)
10. Possibly Phil Kessel, but only for an young puckmoving defenseman with elite potential

DON'T NEED:
1. Stay-at-home defensemen
2. Goalies
3. Young forwards

VALUABLE ASSETS NOT TRADING

Haha! I've noticed the same thing.

Wants: Young scoring forwards or young defensemen with upside. A future starting goalie would be nice too.

Tradeable assets: Muckers and grinders who are overpaid, over the hill, or overvalued by the local fanbase.

Assets: Defensive depth. Wisniewski (currently hurt) and Barker are probably the most likely to be moved. We also have pretty good prospect depth at forward.

Above all, we need quality, not quantity. So no, we do not want to trade Brent Seabrook/Duncan Keith for [3rd liner], [second tier prospect], [6th defenseman] and [draft pick].
This is a good assessment but I think our most pressing need is that #2 pivot we just traded away. Byfuglien, and Sharp on the left side leave us pretty solid. But for god's sake we have Burish listed as our #3C.

Add Khabibulin and young forward prospects like Skille, Bickell, Blunden as tradeable assets.

it seems thats how everyone wants to trade on these boards. "ill give you a hamburger and maybe a coors lite for Gaborik or luongo.

then they try to post the justification of it will get the team being screwed under the cap and the beer and burger will bulk up their enforcers.

I'm going to try my hand with the Canucks - I know it's already been done, but well.. so what?

Needs:
-A quality top six forward, ideally a center - ability to score goals and bring size/physicality are key here; this player cannot be a fringe guy who will end up in the bottom six if he does not play well, we need either a proven solution or we'll just go with the longshots we have now.
-Mobility on defense - we have only two defenders with good mobility, the rest are not exactly pylons but their speed ranges from decent to middling at best. Trouble is we would need said mobile defender to be very good in order to displace one of the slower defensemen as they (Mitchell, Salo, Ohlund, Edler) are among our best.
Don't Need:
-Project top six players
-Bottom six players (either guys who will end up in the bottom six if they don't play at their peak, or true role players - we have several of both)
-Goaltending of any sort
Assets:
-Picks, if they return young players
-Grabner, Raymond - again if they return young players
-Schneider - he is our contingency plan since we can't resign Luongo until July, so the offer would have to knock our socks off
-Krajicek
-Ohlund or Salo (if one waives their NTC and we can make a move to add another depth defender)
-Bieksa or Edler (if the return is a young impact forward and we can make a move to add another depth defender)

For the Caps, the bottom line is that the team doesn't really need to do anything. They might need cap space, so they might dump a salary in the $2.5M range for a pick. Other than that, the Caps don't really need to do anything.

St. Louis Blues

Needs:

1/ # 1 Center - This has been the most lacking element from the Blues for a long time. McDonald is serviceable for now but to really compete for a playoff spot and go deep into the playoffs we need that #1, Berglund/Oshie will be that leathal #1/#2 center punch in about 5 years but in the mean time, we need help.

2/ Goals- Doesn't matter how, who or what, we need goal scorers. Boyes was quite the surprise last year with 43 but the rest of the team outside of Tkachuk(27) lagged. Stempniak had 27 the year before but only 13 the last. Same goes for Kariya(only 16 goals), he needs to step it up. Perron should fill part of the gap with more ice time and full season work as he had 13 in limited action. Goals from the blueline are also a need. Only 17 goals from our defenseman!!! Ouch. A full year with ample ice time from Erik Johnson will certainly add to that and the addition of Steve Wagner/Alex Pietrangelo/Jeff Woywitka should help out in that area over Matt Walker/Bryce Salvador from last year.

3/ Puck moving D - Like I said, Blues defensemen only scored 17 goals and no one toped the 35 point plateau. Defensive specialts Walker and Salvador are gone and puck moving D were brought in/given roster spots. Roman Polak, Steve Wagner, and Jeff Woywitka will be given every chance to make the team but the jury is still out if the trio can fix our offensive D needs. Jonas Junlad and Alex Pietrangelo are also candidates to fill in the need.

4/ Coach- I really am not a fan of Andy Murray. Just something about him and his style. One big thing is his constant line changes. Players don't have to opportunity to gel or create chemistry with his in-game changes. I know players jump lines from time to time in a game, maybe a hot player or whatever but it seemed like almost every shift there would be a different combonation out there. Just bothers me. He's a good coach, I just don't think he's the right coach for this team.

5/Forward depth at AHL level- Outside of Lemtyugov and possibly Stastny(if he starts in Peoria) are our only real call-ups. Most of the prospect depth are in other leagues.

What We Don't Need:

1/ Physical/Defensive D - McKee/Jackman/Brewer are here for our core. Their physical and good defensive play are key to success this year. They also provide big leadership roles for the enitre team and also our younger defensive guys. Roman Polak who will likely command a 5-7 role on the team is a punishing D and will likely replace McKee's role when his contract is up.

2/ Wingers - Blues have spots filled and are ready to go. Adding any FA wingers only will delay development of younger players. Blues were rumored to be going after Shannahan but realistically he would be taking a roster spot away from one of Oshie/Berglund. Boyes/Tkachuk/Kariya/Perron/Stempniak/Oshie are set and ready to go.

3/ Grinders- This could be very well what killed our chances last year. The lack of offensively skilled players was in turn last year. What did John Davidson and compay do? Pk specialist Ryan Johnson left via free agency who was taking out of his role last year at times and put on scoring lines, Same goes for Jamal Mayers who was traded to Toronto. Even DJ King, still with the team, was put out of thier real roles to try and score goals last year. Oshie/Berglund/Perron will all be given big chances to stay in the lineup and on scoring lines.

Tradeable Assets

1/ Lee Stempniak/Jay McClement - The pair had a great 06-07 campain and totally flopped last year. Will they rebound? We don't know. The potential is there and other teams could be interested

2/ Jay Mckee- Injury plagued seasons and an off year last year hasn't gone well with Mckee. He's healthy this year and could boost his value with what hes capable of. Would be key to a playoff run but if out of contention look for him to be shopped. His 4 million price tag is a bit hard to move.

3/ Andy McDonald is a FA next year. If the Blues are out of contention by then, McDonald will certainly be on the way out. Looks like Blues will pick up a 1st rounder again or blue chip prospect if thats the case.

New York Rangers-
--------------------------------------------
Needs:One top-6 winger(preferably speedy players to work with Gomez), Forward Prospects, Hard-hitting Defenseman, #7 Role-playing defenseman(we'll miss you struds), and possibly a salary dump.

We desperately need a top-6 winger. As it stands right now, Fredrik Sjostrom, Petr Prucha, and Lauri Korpikoski are the top candidates for the top-line RW spot, so there will undoubtedly be 1 more move this off-season, IMO. We will also need a bright, young, forward who could take over for Naslund in a couple of years on the first or second line wing.

The Rangers' lack of a hard-hitting, crease-clearing defenseman has really hurt them the past couple of years. But with 6 NHL defenseman, 5 of whom have very recently signed a contract, it will be hard to make room.
------------------------------------
Don't Want:Any other kind of defenseman, 3rd/4th liners, Centers, Old Veterans.

The Rangers have an incredibly bright core of centers(Gomez, Drury, Dubinsky, Anisimov, Betts), we don't need any more. But we also have an incredibly depressing glut of 3rd/4th liners. Some could possibly be moved. We don't need any aging veterans either, as this year's off-season has pointed in the direction of the kids(aside from Naslund)
----------------------------------------------
Tradable Players:Michal Rozsival, Brandon Dubinsky, Paul Mara, Dmitri Kalinin, Petr Prucha, Fredrik Sjostrom
All of these players have either proved themselves with the Rangers, but just don't exactly fit in, or are just not important enough to warrant an official spot on the team.
-----------------------------------------
Untouchables:Marc Staal, Nikolai Zherdev, Nigel Dawes*, Artem Anisimov*, Alexei Cherepanov*, Bobby Sanguinetti*

All of these kids have sown great development and will be counted upon to one day be the Rangers top players, making-or-breaking the team.
*:While you may not think of these guys as core players, their potential is way too high to trade them this early in their careers. They will all very likely be integral parts of the New York Rangers within the next few years, and unless the return is unbelievable, they will not be traded anytime soon.

3/ Marian Gaborik - If he isn't signed by the deadline, he will definitely be moved by the Wild.
Imo he should be traded far sooner if it looks like he won't sign. Imagine losing him for nothing next summer if he gets an injury by deadline time! The Wild should not risk that. Which is why imo he'll be locked up for an insane amount of money fairly shortly. Somewhere.

ASSETS:
1. Steve Reinprecht. 32 years old, 2 million dollar cap hit, last year of his contract, can play all three forward positions equally effectively, is equally good in all three zones, quiet veteren leader, Stanley Cup champion, .65 points per game average as a Phoenix Coyote.
