For those not pissed about losing Halak, where does our focus shift now?

We know our defense is aging, do we find a way to move up the draft to get one of the top 4 defensemen?

We've addressed size at center for the future, do we lock up Plekanec?

Do we look at who to sign for our top 6?

Do we do nothing and just draft at 27th overall?

We need to lock up more top 6, seemed like our bigger problems in the playoffs. Not convinced the Kostitsyns will play good with us again, they will with another team, just not with us, just get rid of the bad media attention. Get rid of Hamrliks contract, i like Hamrlik, but OB and PK are in next season. We need a back up goalie. A lot want an experienced goalie. But I don't see many attractive ones that won't come at a good price. Probably need to bring in some so so goalie or Hamilton's goalie.

I'd say, we need to lock up our top 6

We need to focus on trading Carey Price.

1. Re-sign Price
2. Trade the Kostitsyns, and add 3 forwards, with at least one of the top 6 variety

Top line Center and Winger..

If Pleks is gone replace him with another center to ease Eller in

Upgrade of A.K. If him and co. can return some decent value in the draft do it and replace him with a free agent or trade..My patience is running thin

4th line center..since Lapierre looked pretty comfortable on the wing at the end of the season..Maybe Moore
1-Gomez 2-Pleks (Lombardi) (Sharp) (Marleau) 3-Eller 4-Moore

Tough to move Hammer, but if possible would like to see another shooter on the PP

Back up goalie

We need to decide if we are going to resign Plekanec, if not then we have to Deal AK46, Sk74, and Hamrlik for atleast 1 top 4 D, or a better Top 6 RW or LW.

Makes me wonder though...can Lars Eller turn Ak46 into a player we all thought he could be?

I bet we will either end up signing Pleks OR Moore with Eller being given the other spot at center because right now management seems to not want to add any big longer term contracts right now. Unfortunately I think Pleks is the one on the way out mostly for cap reasons because if they sign him for 5 years at over 4 million per we are pretty much stuck with no flexibility to make any kind of changes to our forwards group in the next 4 years.

We still need a big center. I would take Jokinen, bad year, could be had for cheap. Had EXCELLENT seasons under Martin and would provide a big center down the middle.

Gomez
Jokinen
Eller


As top 3 centers. More dynamic IMO.

Getting the Kostitsyn's the F out of town... flippin' Plekanec's rights and moving Hamrlik or Spacek for a top 6 winger and a good offensive defenceman.

Three things i would like to get done before July 1st.

1) Trade or buyout Hamrlik.
2) Re-sign Carey Price
3) Figure out the Plekanec situation. If you can get him for $5 or less sign him. Otherwise let him go.

With these three moves made, we will have an excellent idea on our cap situation for next season and hopefully can make some good additions on July 1st.
  • Backup goalie - Martin Biron
  • Center if Plekanec is not signed - Marleau, Lombardi, Cullen
  • Size on the wings - Armstrong, Artyukhin, Torres
