That has to be the consensus now. With Chicago butchering its team, San Jose losing key pieces, and Detroit getting another year older, Vancouver is the clear favorite. L.A., depending on whether they can land Kovalchuk and replace Frolov, can challenge for a conference title, too.

Vancouver is deep in top 6 forwards, with potential fill-ins with Hodgson, Schroeder; a deep defense top to bottom; a great goaltender with some question marks, backed up by a top prospect; and lots of depth overall. The only piece missing right now is another great PK 3rd/4th line forward.

IMO Phoenix won't repeat their great season, and Colorado isn't ready to take the next step.

We're still in decent shape in terms of cap room if we lose Bieksa:

Assuming Tambellini is around $1 million:

FORWARDS
Daniel Sedin ($6.100m) / Henrik Sedin ($6.100m) / Alexandre Burrows ($2.000m)
* Mason Raymond ($2.750m) / Ryan Kesler ($5.000m) / Mikael Samuelsson ($2.500m)
Cody Hodgson ($1.667m) / Manny Malhotra ($2.500m) / * Jeff Tambellini ($1.000m)
* Jannik Hansen ($0.700m) / Rick Rypien ($0.550m) / Victor Oreskovich ($0.575m)
Joel Perrault ($0.510m)
DEFENSEMEN
Dan Hamhuis ($4.500m) / Christian Ehrhoff ($3.100m)
Keith Ballard ($4.200m) / Alexander Edler ($3.250m)
Sami Salo ($3.500m) / Aaron Rome ($0.750m)
Andrew Alberts ($1.050m)
GOALTENDERS
Roberto Luongo ($5.333m) / Cory Schneider ($0.900m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS
(these totals are compiled using the bonus cushion)
ROSTER: 22; CAP:$59.4m; PAYROLL: $58.535m; CAP ROOM: $1.715m BONUSES: $0.850m

Still room to improve the 4th line.

@TSNBobMcKenzie Gotta be Kaberle now one would think less than 20 seconds ago via web in reply to TSNBobMcKenzie

# Bob McKenzie TSNBobMcKenzie

Lots of buzz in L.A. All I know is Kings were bitterly disappointed at not getting UFA D. Is it possible they just picked one up in trade? less than a minute ago via web

flexibility is still there... I counted a 20 man roster (12F, 6D, 2G), with no Bieksa, O'Brien, Alberts, Hordichuk, Raymond at $3mill and Hansen at $850K, and got $3.365mill remaining.

that gives you plenty of room to add another 2 bottom-6 forwards and a #6/7 dman... could still add a quality bottom-6 forward like Nystrom or Asham.

of course dependent on Bieksa's salary being dropped.

I can't believe Gillis actually got both guys that most of us wanted.

Sleep? I am afraid Bieksa will be traded....







And then I wake up, and realize it was all just a fantasy.

We did pretty good last year when we re-signed the Sedin twins.

no... and IMO we don't win this one today.

The best 2 contracts handed out today IMO were Michalek and Martin. Pittsburgh wins this FA day.

I guess you're stuck with the price you paid given the current market for defenders, but it's really not a good price.

In this case, the market was setting Hamhuis' price right around where he signed with the Canucks for so, IMO, I can live with it.

As for the term, I don't find it "Wade Redden bad". For a couple of reasons. No. 1, Redden was already noticeably declining when he signed that deal, and it was for several million dollars more. I believe he was also 30 when he signed the deal? Hamhuis is young at 27, will only be 33 when this deal expires, and is a durable, solid defensive defensemen which is exactly what this team needs.

Those are the reasons I am excited for this deal. Hope that sheds some light.
I'm glad you approve, I really didn't want to seem like I was trolling, it's not at all what I attended.
You're right in that he's only 27, but at the same time, ~$28M on a defenseman over the course of six years is a hell of a lot. Good luck with Hammer, he has a tendency to bounce pucks off of himself into his own net. When he's not doing that, he's a terrific defenseman.
Congrats again!

Out:
Kevin Bieksa - $3.5 million

Waived:
Darch Hordichuk - $.775k

Just as long as we don't get a roster player in return for Bieksa, we should have about 6+ million to spend.

Bieksa is likely the guy to be moved. Even with his contract , he could easily be moved. Be careful about losing his toughness..

Bieksa was 9th on the team in hits last year. Granted he only played 55 games, but still.
