1. draft the best defensman available in the first round
2. Trade Staal to aquire more picks to draft the best defensman available.
3. trade a 3rd round pick for the rights to the best UFA defensman available
4. Think about drafting a goalie, but instead draft the best defensman available.
5. July 1st try to sign the best defensman available.

I'm starting to wonder if Detroit could be interested in Paul Martin. Seems like they have some holes on defense that Suter alone won't be able to fill after moving Brad Stuart.

RS is taking his sweet old time signing ANY of his free agents to be.

I don't disagree....with the lack of top end defense available in the UFA market especially. Whatever team misses out on Weber/Suter will have to go to the 2nd tier D men and there are not a lot available on the UFA market.

I don't think trading Martin is going to be as hard as many think on here...

There won't be a problem trading Martin at all, he is a top 4 defenseman in the NHL. Some people on HFBoards are only asking for a 2nd or 3rd round pick in return. Tomas Kaberle garnered a prospect, 1st, and conditional 2nd at the deadline. While he was set to be an UFA there is always a market for a top 4 PMD.

No one thinks there won't be any Martin suitors. It's his NTC/NMC that people are hesitant about.

I'm sure Shero could smooth that over...If Martin has the opportunity to go to a team that wants him and he will be viewed as a top 3-4 d man, I'm sure he'd go...

If the GM tells you that he wants to trade you, the player will eventually sign off on a reasonable deal/destination.
We're not talking Mats Sundin here....

Having said that, we really have no idea if Shero is even interested in trading Martin.

Eliot Friedman says PA Parenteau is available..

It doesn't sound like the Islanders are interested in re-signing Pierre-Alexandre Parenteau. Sometimes, people look at guys like him and say, "He's only getting points because he's playing with John Tavares." While that may be true, it's always a gamble the next guy has the same chemistry with your star. Or that Parenteau will go somewhere else and get 67 points with a different star.


I wonder if he'd put up 67 alongside Sid or Geno for a decent price $$$

Someone like Minnesota or Florida will pay him megabucks though I feel

Asham is useful. he took a bad penalty in game 3, but he was just following the lead of the rest of the team. if he's going to get run out of town for that, then i call shenanigans.

Asham is slow, injury prone due to the style he plays. Pass.

“It’s a tough question,” Asham said. “I don’t know if that suspension is going to be something that hurts me or not. It’s something that happened. I was trying to stick up for a teammate. I was trying to do a team-oriented thing."

I really don't understand the backlash from that hit. I can youtube countless times when after a very dangerous hit a player went crazy on the deliverer of the hit. Heck an easy one off the top of my head is Kasper after his hit on Lindros.

While cross checking the face is bad, I don't encourage it, I don't see what Asham did is anything more than trying to beat the **** out of the guy who took a very dangerous run at a teammate.

how about cross checking the upper chest...since that's what he actually did. but you're right - it was overblown

I'm inclined to agree with this, but the team lacks serious toughness. That being said, it's hard to have toughness when you're always out with an injury.

I can't say I'd be upset if he was back, or sad that he was gone.

our 4th line doesn't need continuity. he can be in and out of the lineup with injuries and it's no big deal - especially since he makes no money.

as for the speed, it's only an issue if you have adams out there with him. you can't have 2 snails on the ice at once, but 1 isn't an issue.

Well when he was out, who brought any kind of toughness to the ice last year on the lower lines? They need to fix that, because I can't even remember offhand who it was after Cooke became neutered.

If Tangradi gets a shot I wouldn't be that upset, but I doubt it will happen.

I will say that *IF* Staal gets moved this year and a center doesn't come back in return. I hope they make a run at Gaustad.

There are better options. I agree with penny's assessment. And malkamaniac is right, what good is your toughness if you can't dress for more than half the season?

It looks like Jeffrey's ship has sailed, so I'd have to agree. Meh..he was one that I thought would work out.

I thought Jeffery would work out too. It's a shame what happened to his knee last year, and it's even more of a shame he wasn't given the opportunity to get back into shape and get games in.

I still feel that guys like Jay McClement or Jim Slater would work out much better. They won't score as much as Guastad, but not by much, and it's not like he's some dynamic offensive player anyway. Defensively they're just as good, if not better...and frankly either will be $2,000,000 or so cheaper against the cap.
