Commandant Posted February 22, 2016 Share Posted February 22, 2016 What team is getting lots of 6-3 wins? I'm still of the mindset from the other thread. Pay Subban, Price, Stamkos (or other elite C) big bucks - $30 million + Get some other talent around them ala Max, Petry, 2nd line centre. Fill out your first lines on guys with ELCs, and other ways to find cheaper complimentary talent (Gallagher's contract is a great example) Fill out the bottom 6 and bottom pairing D on the cheap. (1-1.5 million each) Cheap backup (under 1 million) Thats the formula..... Elite goalie, elite C, elite D, and fill in the rest. By the time price is ready to be paid, we can clear the contracts that are really killing us and replace them cheaper... the Eller, Desharnais, Emelin deals. Even Plek will be gone (and hopefully replaced by chucky, but if not you find a way).] Chicago has been playing tight with the cap for a while. They can dump some good players in Sharp, Ladd, Byfuglien, Saad, etc... they make those hard choices and bounce back cause they have their core (in their case Toews, Kane, Seabrook, Keith, Crawford) locked up.
