Stone plays the same position as Boeser on the PP. Love the guy, but not a net front presence.Island Nucklehead wrote: ↑Sun Feb 10, 2019 1:27 pmWe currently have approx. $29M in cap space.

I would throw the kitchen sink at Karlsson but maybe sign a cheap depth d man and a cheap winger with some bite of that doesn’t work out.
Let’s the kids play and see if a trade can be worked out.
I keep doubling back to Ferland but those concussions scare the hell out of me.
I like this thread
Part of the cap bind the Leaves are in now is because they went "all-in" on Tavares. That gamble may work out for them, but they're going to be sacrificing depth for top-end talent. I'm not opposed to Karlsson as a player, but I prefer we save that cap space for our own guys. We should try to avoid more than one $10M+ deal, and that's going to be Petey pretty quick.
Re-up Edler at similar money, maybe take a stab at a depth defensive LHD like Benn.
We could use some more size on the wings. If we want to drop some money in free agency, someone like Mark Stone ($$$$), Wayne Simmonds ($$$), Anders Lee ($$), or Alex Chiasson ($) would fit the bill.
Simmons is too old to grow with the kids. Fine as a place holder but not the answer long term.
Lee I don’t know.
Chiasson will be overpaid based on a couple hot months. Pass.
Skip signing Benn and give Sautner, Tryamkin, Brisbois a depth role on the left side behind Edler, Hutton and Hughes, or grab someone off waivers at the start of the season when GMs are sneaking good players down.
