I don't think you'll be able to sneak that Gagne/Jokinen in there. How cool would it be to have two Jokinens though, hahaha.
I think this team is going to look really similar to the team that finished the year here last year. Give it another go and hope they can perform like they did in the last half of the season for an entire year. Because let's be honest, between the salary cap and the no-movement clauses and the flat out bad contracts there's not a lot of room to change things on this team.
i understand that but lets be honest i never changed the team much besides resigning tanguay, staios, karlsson, and picking up Jokinen (as i hope we can get ride of kotalik and trade/ahl hagman)
Yup I agree that you didn't the team much, I think that's pretty realistic. But personally I'm not convinced we can get rid of both Hagman and Kotalik and then use the the money saved to get a free agent. That's $6 million being paid to two players who aren't on the team, plus another $3 million for another roster player. If I'm the owner I'm simply not paying for that.
