I guess everyone is commenting on different topics here and there about our future lineup and their thought on this and that mixed with rumours and stuff so lets get it all done here.
Personally im pretty satisfy with today. I'm not thrilled with both of those players really but i feel we're a way better team than last year for sure.
We a top goalie in the league or at least a really solid one. Better than was we had going for sure. We got some grit players and a sniper. Mostly all upgrades on what we had last least. We may have overpaid a little but i rather overpay a little but still get a quality player in the lineup than having 3rd/4th line guys playing over their ass on the first 2 lines and looking at a 10+ millions of cap space.
Still wondering exactly (lets say the team stays as it is) what we'll see.
Clowe - Loktionov - Kovalchuk
Elias - Zajac - Ryder
Henrique - Josefson - Zubrus
Olesz - Carter - Bernier
Tedenby, Barch, Gionta, Matteau...
Larsson - Tallinder
Greene - Salvador
Volchenkov - Fayne
Harrold, Urbom, Merril, Gelinas
and we got 3.8m in cap space left. We have lots of versatile players who can play different positions and i feel we can still make moves since we have one way players who will likely sit a lot. I wouldnt say we have a top of the line depth and skills but we have a pretty solid depth IMO. It will likely give time to guys like Boucher to develop plenty at pro level before the big league.
