    2 years deals for Hemksy and Michalek, $8M cap hit combined otherwise I look at other options

    8m combined will not be enough. Cap rising and bad contracts on this team make it unlikely. Greening at 3 and Cowen at 3 makes hemsky worth 5 and michalek worth 4.

    That is with a discount

    Then I look at trade options, free agents and Prince/Puempel/Lazar

    Trade Boro because: we need to get a better top 4 dman, Cowen isn't ready, Gryba and Wier are less dimensional, Phillips is likely un-tradeable and at the very least can be a good mentor

    Sign Ryan to a one year extension at 7.5, or a long-term contract at the same cap hit
    Re-sign Hemsky to a three year deal, 4.5M a season
    DON'T re-sign Michalek and Kassian

    Trade Da Costa + pick for Kyle Clifford
    Trade Wiercioch + Prince + 2015 2nd for top 4 RD
    Trade Greening and Condra for picks
    Trade or sign for a 3rd line RW (anything to get Condra off the team)

    Ryan - Spezza - Hemsky
    MacArthur - Turris - Stone
    Hoffman - Zibanejad - ???
    Clifford - Smith - Neil
    Grant/Pageau

    Methot - Karlsson
    Cowen - Top 4 RD

    Try to get top 4 D. But I'm assuming we won't. So:

    Ryan - Spezza - Hemsky
    CMac - Turris - Stone
    Hoff - DaCosta - Zib
    Smith - JGP - Neil
    Greening and Condra scratches

    Methot - Karl
    Cowen - Gryba
    Wier - Ceci
    Boro and Phillips extra.

    This could be a good 4th line. I kind of want a Jarkko Ruutu type player to play with Smith and Neil. Don't know too much about Clifford other than he's got some grit. Can he kill penalties? A pest type who can play hard, physical, drop the gloves the odd time, kill penalties and score the odd goal would be great.

    Almost no one has Greening in their line up. Let's face it, he's not going to be traded, bought out, or a healthy scratch. He's been great for Ottawa, especially in the playoffs, he's just had a bad year. I'm definetly not willing to give up on him. He's a smart guy and a hard worker, I count on him having a good off season and coming back next year better. If Hemsky is resigned and Michalek let go, don't be surprised to see a Greening- Spezza- Hemsky line, it could work

    An upgrade on D would be nice. Moving Greening's cap hit would also be good.

    In a perfect world we would sign an improvement over Phillips and let him be the scratch but I don't see us spending any money. Still a sketchy situation at D but solid at F and G.

    Trade out Greening, Condra, Phillips; no Kassian. Move Neil if I could
    Get two new Assistant Coaches as well

    Robidas is 37 yo, how long do you want him?

    Boyle is just bad defensively. Not what the team needs. Ceci will be better than him by next year

    Just a year or two to allow time for Cowen to find his top-4 game. It could be argued that Phillips is Robidas, but imo we need solid veteran leadership in the D-core to compliment the young developing kids. They were kind of hung out to dry this year.

    If it's not Boyle, has to be someone else.

    The D will be a year older, but I don't wanna go into next season hoping the young D step up again. We know how that went this year.

    What if Ceci has a sophomore slump?

    I would like to point out that almost all of these lineups will cost $62 million +
    Does anyone here believe the Sens are going to spend $62 million on payroll next year given that a $56 million dollar payroll was already a couple million 'over budget' this year.

    Trade
    Spezza + Ceci + Prince + 2nd
    For
    Hanzal + Yandle

    Re-sign Hemsky

    Ryan - Hanzal - Hemsky
    Mcarthur - Turris - Stone
    Hoffman - ZIbabejad - Lazar
    Greening - Smith - Condra/Neil

    Methot - Karlsson
    Yandle - Gryba
    Cowen - Phillips/Wier/Boro

    - Karlsson would drive ES play for half the game and then Yandle the other half.

    - Thee very good two-way centers and a good 4th line defensive center.

    - Wings are full of puck possesion talent and speed for EK and Yandle to hit in transition.

    Team would be deadly
