NHL off-season If there's one for NBA, I'm making one for Hockey

Also, Flyers should trade for Bobby Ryan now.
Hard to say..... I do see them taking their division but how often does two or more big name free agent signings pay off the next season ? not very often. Reminds of Colorado in 03 getting Selanne and Kariya.
The work of D mac. ^^^

We got our D-man to play next to Hedman.
He was the 2nd best defenseman available. The contract he got was what the current market dictated.

No. I watched a lot of the Flyers this season, and while Carle provides sufficient offensive production, he cannot play defense. At all. He has no fundamentals and it gets overwhelmingly frustrating. Come playoff time, he gets exposed nearly every time he's on the ice. Of course the Lightning won't be making the playoffs so they won't have to worry about that problem.

And Minnesota doesn't automatically win their division, Vancouver still has the better team. There are a couple good teams in the Central, I see them finishing 6th or 7th.

Bullshit. You just lost your star captain. Unlikely that the Devils go far in the playoffs in the next five years or so. Yeah, the Devils a couple of nice young players, but most of the team is old as fuck. They lack the youth that the Rangers have.
lol, who cares? The Rangers already have a pretty damn good team in place. They have a great core with some promising young players/prospects. Not necessary for them to make any flashy moves. And you know what the best part is? They didn't lose a top player like the Devils did.

If you want to think I'm mad about it fine. But I'm not at all. I've anticipated for almost a year now that he would MOST likely not be coming back. Am I disappointed? Sure. Anytime you lose a face of your franchise it's a bit sad but I'm not mad about the situation or at him. He went to go play for his hometown...I can respect that.
Like I said if he went to play for the Flyers or Penguins yeah I would've been livid, but he didn't.
And yes the Rangers have a younger team I'll give you that. But the Devils will have at least $15 mil to spend next offseason on "younger" players. Lou believes in keeping a strong core of players which has worked pretty well for this franchise the last almost 20 years.

On Friday, mission accomplished.
The Lightning announced they’ve agreed to terms with the 24-year-old ‘tender on a two-year deal worth $3.6 million. Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times reports the contract pays $1.4 million in 2011-12 and $2.2 million in 2013-14 for an average annual cap hit of $1.8 million.
A restricted free agent, Lindback had received his qualifying offer from Nashville prior to be acquired by the Bolts.
The deal serves as confirmation that Lindback will be Tampa Bay’s No. 1 heading into next season. While his body of work is relatively small — just 38 appearances over two NHL seasons — he’ll head into 2012-13 ahead of Mathieu Garon, Riku Helenius and Dustin Tokarski on the depth chart.
No surprise, then, that Yzerman bolstered his blueline this offseason, in the event Lindback struggles with his first bite at a starting gig.
Tampa’s new-look defense will feature the likes of Matt Carle, Victor Hedman, Eric Brewer, Sami Salo, Brian Lee, Marc-Andre Bergeron, Brendan Mikkelson and Matt Taormina (it’s safe to assume Mattias Ohlund will either retire or end up on long-term injured reserve.)
It’s possible youngsters Keith Aulie and Evan Oberg could be in the defensive mix as well.
