But instead you decided it was important to add the above worthless post?

well the cap is set at 69m so we know we have 9m to spend now. (if we can indeed spend to the cap) at this point buyint out A-Train of Salvador seems to be beyond obvious

It could be possible that Lou is also trying to work out a deal with Buffalo so Buffalo can get to the cap floor. They're 16 million below with 15 players on the roster. They don't figure to go after any big free agents, and are in full tank mode for this coming season.

Damn it would be magical if they would help us out a little on this one. I know Lou won't part with both, but getting Buffalo to take one would really help.

You know that and I know that and everyone else knows that, but I don't think Lou knows that.

As much as it would suck if Lou did that...

i mean.. not that i want to pretend that i know more than Lou or anyone... but our problem and solutions are pretty damn obvious.

 

1- need more offence

2- need to deal with the logjam on the D

3- look for our future without hurting the present

 

We absolutely can get rid of Volch or Salvador without skipping a beat im 110% sure of that. Thats extra cap space to spend at a better position right there. The NHL gave us the chance to get rid of a contract with no consequences. Lets fvcking use it. Thats a fvcking gift and we NEED IT now. cash wize and roster wize. Im gonna be pisse if Lou doesnt use it.

 

We need to get more playing time to Larsson and i'd really like to get Fayne signed... he's solid and yeah we have some good Ds but once Zids, Volch and Volch are gone we'll need a solid defensive Dman and we have him right there right now. Santini will probably won't be ready yet.

 

Then we can at least try to sign a forward. i'd really prefer overpaying for a good forward who can get the job done than seeing that money spent on Volch or Sal... 

 

Even getting rid of some dead weight on forward wouldnt hurt at this point. We have too much of the same thing.

I feel I'd prefer Vrbata over Stastny, cause S is gonna cost over $7 mill, and isn't a thirty goal scorer aswell, and him and Vrbata aren't a world apart in whay they bring. Ultimately I'd rather both, but since literally half the league is in on S, let's go head on for Vrbata!

Lou won't dump Salvador. Langenbrunner was a different situation with his discontent.

atleast were only stuck with him for another year.. i couldnt imagine he would re sign him to another year after this current contract..his presence just is not needed in any way on the team.. if he can atleast dump off volch it would be nice ... maybe he has a way to trade away volch and then be able to re sign fayne to a fair deal.

I think you're right. Lou has also stated that he may not use the buyout. I wont be shocked to see us lose Fayne and keep both Sal and Volch. I think it's a real possibility.

This was absolutely perfect :lol:

And yeah, we can all pretend otherwise, but I'd wager there's a 75% chance Gionta is here next year.

 

Wouldn't mind him if we didn't already have a ton of non-scoring wingers.

This. Heck, any of the bottom 4 salary teams would make sense.

With buffalo buying out erhoff - they have to trade for contracts. Murray has said he'll take contracts with draft picks.

Hey Sal, enjoy western New York.

I think Sal's pretty much a company man and Lou likes that.
