2010 UFA Targets

Well its time for the yearly disappointment thread. Who is JR going to target starting tomorrow at noon? And who would you like to see targeted?

I suspect JR will be shopping for a Dman and maybe a 4th line center.

Possible Dman targets
All In the Family
Joe Corvo
Brian Pothier
Brett Carson

Middling UFAs
Shaone Morrisonn
Jordan Leopold 3 years - ??? million
Andres Lilja
Ruslan Salei

Cheaper UFAs
Mike Lundin
Lukas Kraijcek
Kurtis Foster 2 years - 3.6 million
Noah Welch (already re-signed)
Mike Weaver
Brett Lebda

Possible 4th Center targets...this would be a good spot to add some toughness.
Adam Mair
Erik Christensen 2 years 2 million
Adam Burish 2 years 2.3 million
Mike Comrie

IMO:

Brett Carson and Mike Comrie. If we don't get Comrie then just call up Dodge to fight it out with Dwyer for the #3/4 center spot.

I wouldn't mind seeing Hilary Duff at a few Canes fans.

Did I understand wrong or did JR sound today like bringing in someone was a possibility? Someone asked him on his conference call if there was any chance we would bring in a UFA or if it was important to keep the budget low to attract a partner. JR then replied that was like comparing apples and oranges. If there is an opportunity to make the club better it will be taken. Did anyone else get that or was I hearing what I wanted to?

When he was on XM yesterday he said that he was considering adding a defenseman UFA after deciding not to qualify Carson or Picard. Add in the savings from Brind'Amour, and there is some space for an addition besides Babchuk.

Id take Morrisonn if the price was right. I think he would be great playing with Joni. It would actually be easier than playing with Green. And he would actually bring the lumber unlike someone like Lydman. I like Foster too but he just seems like another Babchuk....so why sign 2. Id like Lundin in Raleigh as well. Im not sure he ever got a fair shake in Tampa under a coach that knew what he was doing. Its actually a shame there isnt more RFA action...there are alot of RFA dmen id like to pick off.

Gleason - McBain
Pitkanen - Morrisonn
Sanguinetti - Babchuk
Harrison

Weaver is typical JR player. He sux, he's #6 d-man, he's gritty veteran, can play on PK, good locker room guy...

Lundin is pretty impressive kid actually. Leopold is very good. Lydman is some kind of impossible dream. I just don't see how we will sign Lydman, so bring back Anton. I prefer Carson over Harrison. Carson- Sangs would be interesting pairing but both kids are right handed.

Can JR make some surprise move and add... Girardi for example? Bieksa? Daley? Niskanen? Festerling? Mikkelson? Sekera? Cumiskey? Sulzer? Franson? Martinek? Hillen? Gervais? Kuba? Colaiacovo? Morris?... some interesting names comes to my mind...

Pitkanen- Babchuk/ new player
Gleason- McBain
Harrison- Sanguinetti

I'm really hoping to be surprised by Rutherford today and see him take a run at a one of the UFA defensemen. Maybe not the top of the class, but also not the bottom of the barrel. I think the fact that neither Carson or Picard could come to terms and that they weren't able to move up at the draft and get either Fowler or Gormley, will force Rutherford to make a move today to help the defense for the immediate future.

Seems to me that they would be looking for a LD in the 3rd pairing, which to me would indicate that JR is going to be patient and try to find a bargain. Or at least that's what I'd do...

Pitkanen- Babchuk
Gleason- McBain
UFA (Carson?) - Sanguinetti

But even with that reasoning, let's go ahead and cue up the FIRE RUTHERFORD thread, since we know he won't ink a UFA defenseman today.

35 years old, #4 guy at best, slow, questionable decision making, poor puck mover, lots of penalties, injury prone.

Sounds like a JR guy.

How are the Flyers going to resign Coburn while adding Meszaros' 4 million? Looks like Stevie Y is going after one of the big UFA dmen.
