"You want to?"
"You'll square off?"
"Alright...good luck, man!"

Awesome stuff.

So what are the lines going to look like?

1: Crosby, Pesonen, Fedetenko
2: Malkin, Sykora, Satan
3: Dupuis, Staal, Kennedy
4: Godard, Talbot, Cooke

Maybe switch up Satan and Fedetenko, but Satan I thought might be able to click better with Malkin. It's a shame the Penguins couldn't find a way to get a more skilled winger to play alongside Crosby. Sigh...hell I'd of taken Bertuzzi - 1.95 and a 1 yr commitment? Can't beat that.

Updated Signings:

-Morrison to Ducks
-Jason Smith to Senators
-Recchi to Lightning
I love Laraque too, but when an agitator or enforcer was targeting our stars he wouldn't do anything about it unless they said they wanted to fight. Godard will go after anybody.

Also I'm not too sure what the lines will be but I think that Staal will be a winger for Crosby or Malkin.

Maybe something like this:

Fedetenko * Crosby * Satan
Staal * Malkin * Sykora
Pessonen * Cooke * Dupuis
Kennedy * Talbot * Goddard

Gonchar * Orpik
Whitney * Eaton
Letang * Scuderi

My prediction went to Sh!t...

Man, what the hell is Tampa Bay doing with 40 forwards? Recchi and Bochenski too?

About Marian Hossa, I think the dude is heading to KHL if he wins his cup this year. Just a hunch.

I don't get how this KHL seems to offer these outrageous amounts of cash. What is the KHL anyway? Thats the new "We'll offer you millions to come play in front of 4,000 fans, take a broken-down bus across 8,000 miles of wasteland, play for a chance to win the Zverbnvciunekancghtt Cup, wear jerseys with nothing but advertisements on it, play against players that aren't good enough for the NHL, with the risk of being wacked by the Mafia if you try to leave" Leauge. I wouldn't even be assured I would get paid in that league. The KHL should blow 10 million to get Pavel Bure back on skates, train him, and then give him back to the NHL because it just ain't the same around here without him.

Where does Hal Gil fit in there? He's not too bad when he's not facing a team that can skate all that fast. Hopefully Eaton can stay healthy this year. If not, Goligoski might be ready to make the step up.

The Pens definitely need to find a way to dump Sydor onto an unsuspecting team with idiot management (cough TB take him back) - that would clear up another 2.5 million. That would leave them with somewhere in the ballpark of 4-5 million. A talented winger for Crosby please? Shanahan might be at the right price, Jason Williams is a solid player, and Ladislav Nagy is still around (until the KHL gets ahold of him). Each of these players has the potential to be signed for under 5 million...

See, I was thinking Satan with Malkin simply because of the fact they both speak Russian, but then I remembered Satan is from Slovakia, haha. I think he might be able to rediscover his game paired with Malkin or Crosby (hell, I would score goals paired with either of them), but as I recall he only got the big numbers when he was the head honcho in Buf.

Lecavlier signed an extension for 11 more years. Must like his team I guess.

Tampa, Chicago, maybe Edmonton and hopefully Columbus are all going to have great seasons. Columbus better, I've been waiting forever to see them make the playoffs.

Tampa Bay and Chicago improved the most in my opinion.

Can't believe I missed this thread.

I was upset with the Canucks this off season. Demitra is a nice pick up for the 4 mill, but everything else was kind of weak. Bernier still has the potential, but he is not a safe bet. With Naslund, Morrison and Linden gone, the Nucks needed to save their already on life support O. But it looks weaker to me. Who knows, maybe some of these lines will click. I'm sure the Sedins will hand Bernier career highs and all that, but playoffs? I don't think so.

Mats Sundin, you are killing us here, you know that?

I'd rather have had them chase guys like O. Jokinen, Zherdev etc.
