JULY 1st Lock Acquisition

This thread is not a shortlist of players the TML would be interested in, it's a thread that targets a specific player.

Having said that i keep hearing Burkie say "our draft is on July 1st" and on the Bill Watters show today he mentioned July 1st again when speaking about our forward group.

Burkie must have a player in mind that will 100% be on our team next year with all the publicity he is giving the FA date. Burkie is not stupid he know he can't disappoint and a player of status will be acquired.

Who is the sure shot to suit up for us next season?

He can hype it all he wants, and if nothing happens he can just say "GMs make the most mistakes today and on draft day" and "look, my ego's not so big that I need to be on the front page every day". I think you're reading too much into it.

No one is a lock. Just because we want him, doesn't mean we'll get him. Also known as, Cammalleri.

And just because a player supposedly wants to be here, doesn't mean Burke wants him here. Also known as, Raffi Torres

Burke's really hyping up July 1st. Maybe he knows he's got a player or two in the bag already.

That's the feeling i got after listening to him on the Waters show. Sounds like something is in place, be it a trade (Kaberle) or UFA signing. He's done a really good job so far IMO.

Why does everyone say Raffi Torres. We need a top six forward not a bottom six. Torres is a bottom six. We have enough of those.

I personally would be alright with picking him up.... gives time to some of the other younguns to chill in the AHL..... Hanson comes to mind.... so our bottom six has the possibilities of

Orr
Torres
Sjostrom (sp?)
Hanson
Mitchell
Primeau
Wallin
Lundmark
Rosehill

and that's assuming we resign wallin, lundmark, primeau, hanson and mitchell all get resigned... so maybe we have a bottom six like

Torres - Hanson - Sjostrom
Mitchell - Primeau - Orr

Costs about 6-7mil..... and it looks decently strong to me.... I like the third line
anyway just my thoughts..... what does everybody else think

I really hope Torres doesn't come here, I don't hear a lot of good things coming from Jackets and Sabres fans about him.

Colby Armstrong is my pick.

A pest/grinder who can score would be loved here in Toronto.

Sounds very familiar...

I am hoping to make our big splash with trades...

Hopefully get a top line player for Kaberle...

Trade Grabovski for picks or in a package for a more proven centreman.

Then my big free agent splash (also a pipe dream), sign Scott Niedermayer.

And possibly some muscle in Armstrong and Torres. And a good 4th liner in Rob Niedermayer.

as long as it is at a fair price I'm fine with it

he is on pace for a 52 point season so I'm suspecting the price wouldn't be too high

Do not want.

He's been terrible for Buffalo after they gave up a 2nd for him.

Higgins to replace Primeau and Wallin, and Paul Martin to replace the to-be-traded Tomas Kaberle.
