Devils have $2,231,467 remaining in cap space

03 July 2008 - 09:42 AM

Right now our cap is at $2.3 million. If we trade VV who makes $1.8 then we are at $4.1 million. We can also move a player like Andy Greene and say about another 500K. So maybe we can keep GIO and go out and get a young D-guy making around $2.5 a year? We would still have $1.5 million in cap. We can also dump Mike Rupp(500K) because we have Vrana and Pelley that can play in his place.

IMO, the HOLIK signing makes Mike Rupp expendable. I would rather see either Pelley or Vrana in his place. Give the kids a shot.

The 2008-2009 line pairing as I see it.

I feel this team will inject youth into our line-up next season with Bergfors and Vrana. I say keep Elias and Parise together like last year. Rolston will gives us a second line with scoring punch. Gionta I feel is gone. LOU still needs to upgrade our D with one more signing. Zajac will not play center next year, if you remember he was moved to the wing end of last season.

Parise-Elias-Zajac

Bergfors-Rolston-Lagenbrunner

Pando-Madden-Zubrus

Vrana-Holik-Clarkson

reserve: Rupp

(Bergfors made the team last year, but suffered a shoulder injury the first game) I think he makes the roster no doubt.
(Vrana takes the spot of Brylin, I hope)

On defense I think VV will be moved. Signing Salvador was a good thing, we needed a big body + he brings stability to our second pairing.
Mottau I see as our #6 or #7 reserve guy this year. I don't know if Corrente is ready. We also have Mark Fraser, Andy Greene, and Sheldon Brookbank. So we have plenty of reserves. We need one more decent D guy that can move the puck to play with Salvador. We can def move VV and Andy Greene or Fraser in a trade. So LOU has some chips to play with.

Salvador-??

White-Mottau/Corrente

Reserves: Mark Fraser, Andy Greene, and Sheldon Brookbank
