Menacing, nasty, ugly, vicious, ill-tempered, knock-you-down-HARD Defenseman.

But, not sure there is one out there that could be available. If not...Then I maybe asset for asset type of a deal. What I mean by that is, maybe there is another club out there with a wealth of defenseman of this nature. Maybe a club could be enticed to deal a Colton Teubert, or a Nick Petrecki. Maybe a forward could be used to swing this type of a deal. Maybe a Chris Krieder, and or maybe an offensive-minded defenseman in Sanguinetti.

But then again, maybe the best moves are the ones they never make at all.

It's far from impossible to fit him under the cap. If we do make a run at Kovy, we will almost definitely rid ourselves of Rozy one way or another. Thats only a 1.4m difference of salary between Rozy and Ilya. (+ whoever else we rid of on the NHL level, if applicable) We have 1m~ of cap space right now. Also, by the time the deadline rolls around, it will be about 3/4 into the year, which obviously reduces the amount of cap space we need..

At first I'm really curious to see who he brings in as 7th dman. There hasn't been much talk about it lately.
I'd have no problem calling up someone from Hartford in case of an injury, but if someone gets injured in warmups, we're gonna have to play a defenseman short.
So I think a cheap veteran 7th dman is the first thing Slats should be looking for.

They've seemingly been trying to move Rozsival for months. His play so far has hardly upped his trade value. Who really is going to take that contract without sending salary in return?

And is the goal to rent Kovalchuk or keep him?

I'd say the more important question is, why?

This team needs a solid crease-clearing D-man more than it needs another goal-scorer at this point.

But as of now...I don't think there's a need to make a move at all.

I think its way too early to know what this team needs.

Whose is going take them and why? And who specifically do you want to dump?

Not to mention, Staal is due for a raise after this season. Not to mention Girardi.

I'd love Kovalchuk on this team, but its just not gonna happen, especially when there needs to be help on the Blue line.

Staal is due for a raise at the end of the season. So is Girardi. Prospal is an UFA. And then the year after, Callahan and Dubinsky are up again (with no big contract coming off the books).

By the end of next year, Drury will have one year left on his contract. If we really need money for Callahan or Dubinsky, we can either

A) Buy out Drury. His cap hit would be split over 2 years and 2/3rds his salary. That would be a 1.67M cap hit for 2 years. We would have over 6+ mill to throw at Cally and Dubinsky.

B) Trade Drury.

Prospal we should definitely hold on too. His team bought him out, he can't really ask for a crazy contract since he's already getting paid from another source.

Staal is in the same boat as Dubinsky was. He will not get more than 2 million for 2 years.

As for Girardi, with the glut of defensivemen in the system, we can either trade him and bring someone up (essentially saving money), or just resign him to a decent contract, maybe a 1 mill increase?

We are not in a bad cap situation at all. The buyout of Drury in his last year would be a great idea, but I don't know if Slats would do it.

Ola, I mentioned Kaberle for Rozsi swap, basically because he would be an improvement over Rozsival but I guess thats what Gilroy and MDZ are anyway. So yeah a crease clearing defenseman would be best and also possibly a top 6 winger.

That's how far we are from the cup in my eyes.

If space can be cleared, Martin St. Louis?

Chris Chelios or another solid #7 defenseman.

For now that's all that's missing.

I'd like to see this group play.

I never said they were in bad shape capwise. I did say they don't have the space to add Kovalchuk.

We're going to need a #7 guy eventually.

It won't be a young player out of Hartford, because anyone in Hartford needs to play.

The guy we get as the #7 will have to go in knowing they won't be playing much. And he will have to be a tough/nasty player.

Slats should be looking to free up Drury's and Redden's cap hit.

A Gomez scale miracle. i.e. we need to swap out Rosival for someone better. Our forwards are fine unless we are somehow upgrading. Like Higgins (ufa) & Lisin (rfa) for Frolov (ufa). I did say miracle!

I agree let the season play out and see where holes need to be patched. What veteran dman will Slats bring in this year? Seriously, imo, if they are going for it, and I mean want to play meaningful late May hockey, they need another top flight player, Gaborik can handle a lot, but to take it to the next level I think they need another scorer to contend. On the defensive side, you have to think Del Zotto and Gilroy will hit the wall eventually due to the compilation of games played. Matt Carle had 13 points in October in his rookie season then faded out, I hope MDZ doesn't do the same. The deadline is going to be interesting, it comes right after the Olympics are over, I can see less trades this year.

I honestly think Staal is the type of player a team would give an offer sheet too.

I know GM's don't like to offer sheet players, but with Staal its very possibility.
