    We could easily get rid of those guys if we seriously need extra cap space... At worst you buy them out... We're not in cap trouble whatsoever... :popcorn:

    If we deal Plekanec, Emelin, Gallagher and Shaw, that's 18 million in cap space.

    We don't need Gallagher and Shaw. We're fine at wing in the top 9 with Pacioretty, Radulov, Drouin, Galchenyuk, Lehnkonen and Byron.

    Best part of a third line of Lehkonen - Danault - Byron is they all have salaries around 1 million. Much better than paying 4 million for third liners like Gallagher and Shaw.

    The question is what are you going to do with all that cap space? :)

    Get a UFA Center, or trade for Stepan or Eric Staal.

    Good job by Bergevin managing the cap, one of his strength. :)

    Only in self-flagellation land is Gallagher a third liner. He has scored 22 goals per 82 games in the NHL.

    did you watch the playoffs? Gallagher and Rad were our best forwards. Patch (again) disappeared.

    If you want to win you hang on to guys that step it up in the playoffs. If you want to judge your team on paper you go your route.

    NOthing really huge on the UFA market. Martin Hanzel is a disaster (I've watched him for years here).

    A very solid centerman is Nick Bonino. but if he commands bigger money then his slot suggests I would never overpay for a third line centerman.

    Why is Hanzal a disaster?

    Lekhonen was better than Gallagher.

    If the Habs lost Emelin tonight, they will be at 35 contracts and have 21,537,023 in cap space for 18 players.

    Pac, Drouin, Gallagher, Shaw, Pleks, Danault, Lehkonen, Byron, Mitchell, Martinsen, Hudon, Weber, Petry, Davidson, Benn, Jerabek, Price, Montoya.

    According to CapFriendly, Habs currently have $19M in cap space. With Emelin's $4.1M coming off the books, they will have $23.1M in cap space with 35/50 pro contracts and 16/23 roster size.

    I would like to see Hudon and DLR crack the line up next year. Hudon more than DLR, though.

    6m next season too with Pleky coming off the books, but I'm guessing 3m goes to Patches and the other 3m goes to Price.

    Looking at the UFA d men, how has Del Zotto been for Philly? Could he be a guy that might pair well with Weber?
    I haven't seen much of philly the last few years so not sure how he'd look or what he's going to fetch this off season.

    The last time he played a full season was in 2009-2010 with 81 games played. Ever since then, he hasn't played more than 65 games. The lockout-shortened 2012-2013 season, he played 39 of 48 games. And last year he played 71 games with Arizona & Minnesota.

    2010-11: 61 GP
    2011-12: 64 GP
    2013-14: 65 GP
    2014-15: 37 GP
    2015-16: 64 GP
    2016-17: 71 GP

    5 of the last 6 seasons where teams played 82 games, Hanzal played more than 70 once.

    I read a quote from an anonymous teammate of his saying that he's one of the most injured players he's ever come across or played with. Always has something wrong.

    That + his underproduction makes him a huge NO-NO, PLEASE NO for me.

    I know he's often injured, this doesn't answer the question though.

    65 games is still a decent amount of games.

    Man, without Markov on the D squad, we have as much defensive mobility as a stack of street cones.

    Could Nate Schmidt be a potential Barg-a-bin target? LHD that might be worth more than he'd cost to acquire.

    I think we have just enough depth on D with room for a single elite puck moving defenseman to play with Weber.

    Weber
    Markov (expect him to re-sign)
    Davidson
    Petry
    Schlemko
    Benn
    Redmond
    Jerabek

    That's 8 guys. I can honestly also see us replacing Markov with an elite puck moving defenseman to pair with Weber since we also have Lernout as the 9th guy.

    I think that would give us $23M for 3 players: #1LD, #1RW, #1C. Lots to ask but the cap space is there.
