Had some time this am, thought I'd take a stab at the offseason. Kakko I think changes the calculus here. He's ready to step in day one and will (hopefully) be a mainstay in the top 6 for years to come. I also love his versatility that he can play both LW and RW - with Kravtsov coming over who much prefers the right and Buch coming into his own as well it would be better for Kakko to start on the left. Im excited to see Kravtsov - Im very glad my gut reaction to last year's draft appears to be way off. The two biggest holes I still see on the roster: a right shot defensive defenseman, and a top 6 right shot winger. Even if you go Kakko-Kravtsov-Buchnevich down the RW depth, that 3 left shots. Not what you want. My 4 main offseason moves (which I think are all realistic): -Get either Kapanen or William Nylander out of TOR. Nylander is 22 years old and a right shot winger. He was awful after he came back and could be a good buy-low candidate. They need to resign Marner, and Kapanen and Johnsson are also RFAs. There's no room for him there. Kapenen is also 22 and a right shot winger, and can absolutely fly - he could be a potential target on draft day for a cheaper price though doesn't have Nylander's ceiling. I think about using Andersson in this deal if the target is Nylander. Kapanen may be the smarter target as he could be signed for much less than Nylander's current deal. -Get Trouba out of WPG. Just turned 25. Right shot defenseman with size. WPG is crowded on the back end and has a lot of young players they need to pay soon. I give them one of Hajek, Rykov and Lindgren in this deal - with K'Andre one year away and Rykov likely coming to North America this summer we can spare a lefty to shore up the right side. -Resign Kreider. I've got back and forth on him and Panarin. I don't see any way that we can do both, and my best guess is Kreider will cost around 7m while Panarin is going to be up around 11m. That extra 4m can be used on the guys above and on the one final big move: -Take on Callahan for removing the conditions on Tampa's second pick, making it a first. Tampa needs that cap space in the worst way this summer. Vesey, Namenstnikov, Fast and Shattenkirk are all moved out as part of the above or dumped for the best draft picks we can accumulate. How far does this team go next year? Kakko-Zibanejad-Buchnevich Kreider-Chytil-Kapanen/Nylander Lemieux-Howden-Kravtsov Gettinger-Strome-Callahan Skjei-Trouba Staal-DeAngelo Lindgren-Fox The year after, K'Andre replaces Staal, and Callahan and Strome are off the books.
