Burns, Suter, Liles, and White are all interesting names we should look at. On offense, maybe Kostitsyn or Sharp but they'll likely cost too much

Imagine if we signed Jagr.....

Suter is my goal, will help replace Timonen who will be gone the year after.

If the cap goes up even a little we would have almost 20 million in space.... we would have room to go after one big fish in the free agency pool

Edit: with the new CBA we could also get the bonus cushion back and give us more room

Believe Chicago is already talking new deal with Sharp.

I would be ecstatic if we could land Suter next year. If we can get Coburn extended to a good deal that group would be awesome.

As for forwards, I wouldn't mind having a guy like Umberger back. Don't know how likely that is though (if we sign Suter). Andrei Kostitsyn is another one I'd take a look at.

All of this is of course ridiculously premature however.

Jagr's 3.3, Carles 3.4, Coburns 3.2, Bets .7, plus rise in cap and our bonus cushion.

Minus raises to JVR, Voracek, and signing Coburn/Carle.

IDK, it could work. We would then have Timonens money to extend JvR long term and stuff like that the year after.

Jagr's money coming off the books will go to JVR and Voracek. I dont know if they can afford to bring back both Coburn and Carle. Both will probably expect a raise and given the contract Kaberle just signed I would just walk away from Carle. He is not worth 4 million plus.
Suter is going to ask for and probably get 5 million or more from someone. Meaning that we couldnt re-sign Carle or Coburn. Add into that is that we always have a stupid/wtf/head scratching move each off season and I wouldnt hold my breath on landing Suter.

Okay im gonna try to do a run down of what our team would look like with the bonus cushion and a 66.4 million dollar cap.

JVR(3.50)-Giroux(3.75)-Voracek(3.00)
Hartnell(4.20)-Briere(6.50)-Couts(2.20)
Simmonds(1.75)-Schenn(3.11)-Read(.900)
Nodl(.845)-Talbot(1.75)-Holmstrom(.750)
Sestito(.550)

Total forwards=32.805

Pronger(4,921,429)-xxxx
Kimmo(6,333,333)-Coburn(4.0)
Mez(4.00)-Lilja(.735)
Bart(.600)

Total=20.589762

Bryz(5,666,667)
BOB(1.75)

Total-7.416667

Grand total=60.811429
That total is without the bonus cushion
With bonus cushion=56.45

Plenty of room to go get suter no doubt(this is all subject to change haha.. just a brief run down of what the team could look like somewhat)
