    Its all a bit of nightmare. Personally Id prefer a shut down defence man. Budget is very tight.
    If anyone can play with the budget its Gillis.

    To me it makes no sense why he’d go with Skoula, having let Vaananen go. He’s going to trade away a bit of cap space to get a better guy than that.

    It looks like Christian Backman is signing with Frolunda, according to Hockeyexpressen.

    Trading partners? I think the Leafs and Lightning have the largest over-abundance of D-men.

    Bring back Krajicek?

    I’d happily take Lukas back.

    Unfortunately I feel that while he could have kept Vaananen, Skoula is a cheaper version.

    Getting anything from the Leafs would mean we give up too much, and frankly, I don’t want Kaberle’s cap hit.

    I’ve been thinking Ian White as an option over Kaberle. What do you think of White?
