This first scenario is kind of a worst-case scenario. Since so many of these scenarios involve one player (e.g. Eric Belanger - who is just one man short of a few teeth, after all), I figure I will do 2 or 3 with different players, then kind of combine them. Note that I don't think this is at all what WILL happen, or what SHOULD happen, but rather what COULD happen.
Scenario The First: Barbarism -
or where Lou goes out and tries to get the toughest players and loses all of the current players.
Sign Raffi Torres - 2 years, 4.4 million
Sign Dominic Moore - 3 years, 5.4 million
Sign Brad Winchester - 2 years, 1.5 million
Trade 4th round pick and LW Andrew Peters for RW Petteri Nokelainen
Trade Brian Rolston and Matt Halischuk for D Brendan Witt and 7th round pick
Sign Dan Hamhuis 5 years 22.5 million
Sign Andy Sutton 2 years 4 million
EX: Fraser, Salmela
Here's how that looks cap-wise:
Chart is pretty self-explanatory - red indicates UFA, green indicated RFA estimated contract, the strikethrough is for players who won't actually be on the team.
