    I would sign Hamilton long term if possible, if not give Barrie a three year deal with a decent raise.

    We are probably going to lose Lagesson or Jones via expansion.

    I want to say I would keep Larsson around on the cheap but I don't see him signing for 2.5 or less.

    Next year:
    Klefbom - Hamilton / Barrie
    Nurse - Bear
    Lagesson / Jones - Bouchard

    I would be fine burning our first on Ekholm.

    Nurse-Barrie
    Ekholm-Larsson
    Russell/Bouchard-Bear

    Might get us out of North into semis

    Next year
    Nurse-Bear
    Ekholm-Bouchard
    Klefbom-Larsson

    Protect Bear, Nurse, Ekholm for expansion on D and hope for the best.

    I will be surprised is Klefbom ever plays another game in the NHL. Signing a player like Ekhlom or Hamilton (or some other such player) would really help with the teams defensive depth, especially if we could hang onto what we currently have. It would knock many of the players down a spot.

    You have to give something to get a legitimate starting goalie. Prospects likely won't cut it.

    If Larsson can keep healthy and keep playing like this, I wouldn't mind giving him a 3X3 type of a deal. That said we still need Bouch playing NHL minutes and Bear shouldn't be going anywhere IMO.

    Nurse-Barrie
    Bouch-Bear
    Russell-Larsson

    Next season if we re-sign Barrie and Lars:

    Nurse-Barrie
    Bouch-Bear
    Samorukov-Larsson
    Russell

    If Klef returns healthy next season then we have some serious depth on D and maybe forced to move 1 or 2 quality D.

    I know it's a proposal, but I would be all in for Ekholm. If the Oilers acquired him, they would finally be set on D (not champion level D, but at least legit playoff D).

    Really interested to see what Barrie is looking for on his next deal. Love the player, just hope he isn't looking for crazy $$$. He has a rare skill set that is not easily replaced.
