What does your team need?

Posted 11:57 PM ET | Comments 4
As it stands right now, this summer looks to have a large selection of UFA's for every position. Teams will have tight budgets, some are in serious trouble already and others are losing tons of players, which will mean a scramble to create a roster. I understand that it is early and that a lot of these players will resign. However lets go with the assumption that they are available. Still keeping in mind budget. Who do you see going where? Who do you want on your team?rnrnLets start with Defense. Always a sought after position on any team. Just looking that the LARGER names on the blue line that are UFA's this year. Are there any thoughts as to what Jersey they will be wearing?rnrnThis is sorted by current stats as per NHL Salary cap

Markov
Zidlicky
Morris
Benoit
Niskanen

Plus many role players. Some good players to pick from. A guy like Lundqvist is a game changing tender. Some of the defense can make all the difference for suffering teams. How would your team look with Gaborik or Vanek? Maybe what they need is a top 5 hitting center like Ott.

What does your team need and who do you want?

Lundqvist to the Avs in the off-season if Varly falters. DO IT. LOL.

My team is the Leafs. We need to resign Phaneuf and we need 3 new good two-way defensemen. Phaneuf, Gunnarson, Franson, 3 new players, and Rielly could make a nice blue line.

That is a big thing. The Avs have the money that they could sign Lundqvist. I do think they have two decent goalies. However that would make them quite the formidable team. As for the leafs, I am not positive that Phaneuf is in their plans. For his type of money you could get 2 of those 3 dmen you want. However they would need to get a number one guy to replace him which is easier said than done.

The Flyers need to go out an get a impact player, they have alot of cash so... I think they should pursue Thorton, Marleau, Callahan, Steen, and Phanuef.
