Amen! I know there was an article a few days ago that said Boucher was working on filling out his staff, but that Wilson and Raeder were still possiblities. Not good.

Brian Lawton may be the best troll the team has ever had.

Matt Walker's contract? It goes up each year.

WTF?

The cap hit stays the same of course, but in terms of money actually paid out, he's getting a raise this year, and next year, and the one after that.

It just makes him increasingly less appealing to send to Norfolk.

^^^LMAO I love Moss.

What about keeping Walker around and letting him bang bodies on the 4th line? I think he played some forward when he was in St Louis...Unless we can find a trade partner, I think that's the next best option before waiving him to Norfolk or buying him out.

Guy Boucher said at the Chili's Summer Tour in Clearwater yesterday he prefers to dress 7 Dmen. He also praised Walker's toughness so that may keep him on the team.

Yzerman and Boucher count on with eight D-mans. But Paul Ranger is still RFA. Yzerman maybe except with Ranger, when he signs Brett Clark.

Hedman - Kubina
Ohlund - Lundin
Clark - Lashoff/Walker

7th Walker/Lashoff, 8th Smaby...

No and it doesn't look like he will, but we don't know much at all, so let us wait and see.

Here's a quote from Yzerman & Boucher on Ranger:

Quote:
While it seems that Yzerman wants defenseman Paul Ranger in the fold, he is proceeding like the team will go forward without him. Yzerman said he has had contact with Ranger’s agent, but that, “the player’s future has not been nailed down.”

Coach Boucher talked about the Ranger situation in Tampa’s Creative Loafing: “We feel that he is a guy that is definitely a solid defenseman who can help our squad. It always depends on where he is in his life right now. We will find out in the coming months how he feels and if he is ready to come back. We are not here to push people. I think the worst thing you can do in circumstances like that is make speculations on how he feels and what he wants. So we are patient in this case.”

I have a feeling Ranger will abruptly retire at some point in the near future, and probably without giving any real reason why (like Chad Kilger did a few years ago after being traded to Florida).

It's very strange that, after all this time, there still hasn't been hardly news regarding his status with the team (besides being an RFA). It's been about 8-9 month's since his LOA, yet nothing's really changed.

Hedman-Kubina
Ohlund-Lundin
Clark-Lashoff/Smaby


It would be nice to see TB add one more offensive puck moving d-man!

Who is available?

Grebeshkov

Trade for Carle from Philly? for a 9th rounder...SY seems to have Holmgrens number!

Trade for Bieksa, Erhoff or Salo

Trade for Giordiano

Trade for Kaberle

If those were the options, I would just go for grebeshkov on a 2 year deal...Assuming he accepts, we don't give up any assets, get a young guy and if he doesn't work out, it's a small term and his contract expires when Hedman needs a new contract. In the real world though, I don't think Grebeshkov is looking for a 2 year deal.

I'd love to have Ehrhoff. But he isn't a bottom pairing guy and we still gotta remember were building with the youth we have, not getting veterans to plug holes that the youth can fill just as good and are on 1 year deals (Lashoff, Smaby, Lundin)

Meech has Tampa written ALL over him!

He'll probably only cost the Bolts a 5th or 6th rounder. Give him a looksee.

Not on defense at even strength. You rarely see a RH dman playing on the left side. On the powerplay yes, even strength no.
