    I think we will lose Armia to Las Vegas. And I'll forgot about Copp, thanks for reminding me

    Is it the offseason already...

    For now:

    Petan-Scheifele-Laine
    Connor-Little-Ehlers
    Copp-Lowry-Armia
    Dano-Matthias-Kosmachuk

    Morrissey-Byfuglien
    Enstrom-Myers
    Niku-Nogier

    Hellebuyck
    Halak

    Lose Perrault to Vegas
    Trade Trouba because he wants to play in US Market.

    Only one I added was Halak because I was sure he's more likely than any other player at this point.

    I like Heiskanen and I kinda hope Jets pick him up in the draft. But is no where near NHL caliber yet.

    2019-2020 is realistic first season for him.

    Don't know why everyone wants to get rid of Perrault, he's one of are best players and one of the best Defensive Forwards in the league(some Jets bias there but look at his Own The Puck stats), next Trouba, of all players... Trouba is litterly our best Defenseman, and could be one of the best in years to come, now tell me why give that up? I don't care if he wants to be in a different market, offer him what no one else will because he's a great Defenseman who should stay put, Also the biggest issue about Troubas hold out was the way the Organization handled his contract not the Market of which he is playing in.

    I'll give it a shot. We have two holes, goaltending and defensive depth.

    Perrault Scheifele Laine
    Ehlers Little Wheeler
    Connor Lowry Armia (Some will raise their eyes at this but Connor is currently playing and dominating the AHL on a similarly constructed line with a big physical defensive C in Cormier and an all out hustle forechecker in Lipon. I think there might be a reason for him playing there)
    Mathias Petan Dano

    FA depth piece non goon type

    Morrissey - Trouba
    Smith* - Buff
    Pouliot* - Myers
    Chariot

    Darling*, Helle

    *The Jets sign both Darling and Smith in FA. They buy low on Derrick Pouliot who seems to be undervalued by Pittsburgh.

    I find a way to get Toby to waive is NMC and deal him this summer for a futures package. Might not be realistic but I feel he's slowing down too much for the type of game we will be playing.

    We are able to protect 7-3-1 and I elected to expose Copp who gets taken.

    The summer moves accomplishe three things.

    1) Adds a potential number 1 to battle with Helle for starts.

    2) Shacks up the core by dealing Toby.

    3) Makes the defense younger and quicker and able to really move the puck which further compliments the team's collection of highly skilled and fast forwards.

    I wanted to say that's a great lineup. Love it. I thinking we are looking at over $4 million for each of Smith and Darling in free agency. That would be a big splash for Chevy.

    I would keep Copp over Matthias, for versatility, that would be my only change.

    Well both Matthias and Copp would have to be exposed to meet the games requirement. I tried to be realistic in that I feel Vegas will take the young piece in Copp although I'd rather they took Mathias.

    I also wouldn't have any issues with slight overlays to either Darling or Smith as we will have cleared around 15 million in cap space with Toby, Stafford, Pavs and Thor leaving. We will have a mountain of cap space this summer so we should be able be competitive in FA.

    Fair. I would still try to keep Copp. Given that he is a big part of keeping Trouba here, and happy. Maybe we could offer a prospect like Lemieux or Phillips to take Matthias over Copp. Still, solid lineup!

    Trouba will have Connor and Helly both fellow Michigan boys here to keep him happy!

    I wouldn't be opposed to throwing in a Lemiux or mid round pick in that type of scenario.

    If one of those UFAs is Postma I'll be happy. I'm not seeing any UFA options that are better AND cheap enough to sign for the 3rd pair/pressbox.

    Also, lets be real... Chiarot will be on this team, whether we like it or not

    How I think it will happen

    Ehlers Scheifele Laine
    Connor Little Wheeler
    Matthias Lowry Armia
    Copp Petan Dano
    UFA

    Morrissey Trouba
    Enstrom Myers
    Chiarot Buff


    Hellebuyck


    Post trade deadline

    Ehlers Scheifele Laine
    Connor Petan Wheeler
    Matthias Lowry Armia
    Copp Roslovic Dano

    Morrissey Trouba
    Chiarot Buff
    Niku Myers
    Melchiori

    Probably another bottom ten finish? Hence Toby and Little being dealt.

    My lineup:

    Ehlers-Scheifele-Laine
    Perreault-Little-Wheeler
    Connor-Roslovic-Dano
    Lemieux-Lowry-Armia
    Matthias

    Morrissey-Trouba
    XXXX-Byfuglien - free agent or trade for XXXX
    Enstrom-Myers
    Postma

    YYYY - free agent or trade for YYYY
    Hellebuyck

    Copp is off to Vegas. Petan is too, for Vegas not selecting Myers in the X draft.

    Jets draft a C in the draft. I'm predicting Rasmussen.

    The only way I'd be ok losing Myers is if we pursuited Shattenkirk, not saying we have to land him but at least see the management push to improving our flaws.
