Signing 1) Doan is not leaving Phoenix, he has been with them since they moved from Winnipeg. Doan is going to be with them till they either move oe he will retire as a Coyote.
Signing 2) Biron on a team with good defense puts up respectable numbers, however on a team with poor defensive numbers (Islanders in 09-10 was a .896 sv% and a 3.27 GAA) plus if we were to make the playoffs he never could get it done in Philly with the stacked teams they had.
Trade 1) First Gustavsson is a UFA we can't trade him, Franson is an RFA and his rights can be traded. Now Bozak(1.5m cap), MacArthur(3,25m cap), Connolly(4,75m cap), plus our 4th round pick. For Staal (4m cap), when currently the Penguins have a cap space for next year of $4,733,333. How exactly do the Penguins even remotely want to make this deal?
Trade 2) Komisarek(4,5m cap) Armstrong(3m cap) for the current number 4 pick where they are projected to pick Murray. Now I know the Islanders have a ton of cap space this upcoming season currently $25,167,667. However they need to resign or pick up numerous players to fill spots. The thing is the Islanders never spend to the cap limit and I can't see them wanting to take on more bad contracts then what they already have(DiPietro and Yashin).

Hahahah exactly I know the Islanders are a joke, but that was more in the days when Milbury was running the show as GM. To think Komisarek and Armstrong could fetch a 1st rnd number 4 pick hhahahahaha I needed a good chuckle today and I guess this thread did it for me.
^ Wow I thought he meant 4th round pick. He really does mean 4th overall pick though doesn't he.

We should consider bernier, or maybe possibly halak through free agency, halak is more than capable of back up duty and if reimer ***** up again he can carry the load, so even better for us Defense needs some work...hopefully holzer is ready but we could use more...schenn for jvr i have no problem with. Mueller is a big guy, and seems like a burke kind of guy but we need more. Guys like moen might be available. Is there any way we can go after tavares? What is the cost for rick nash are we really giving up too much to take that on?
Bottom line is burke has no choice but to improve this team and do it NOW this off-season...good luck, his *** is riding on it.

Thats a team i think Carlyle can work with... I know the second line looks weak but i think that line will actually produce a lot, more then our 2nd line did this year... And the third line can score too, and they have good work ethic and they can shutdown other teams, the only thing that needs work is the defense, we can work on that through free agency, and if we draft Dumba he will be ready soon enough... And if Gardiner and Schenn and even Holzer develop well plus Dumba Percy Gunner Phaneuf then we have a strong D...

Sign vokoun for 2 yrs @ 3.5 mil per year. Matt Carle for around 4 a year. Arnott 1 Year @ 3.4. Overpay Semin just to get him to T.O for 3 yrs @ 7-7.2 mil. Re-sign Franson at 3.2 a season. Trade for Oshie's rights and sign him 4 years @ around 4 mil per year.
Try and give Philly Phaneuf instead of Schenn for JVR. Detroit will want a defensive prospect so I'd give them Blacker + Macarthur for Bertuzzi who is still signed for 2 more year with a cap hit of 2 mil each year.
This adds both scoring depth and experience to the roster. Komi, Connolly, Lombardi, Bozak, Liles can be packaged into a trade or dumped for picks.
