Not sure Purcell is a good enough finisher. He's morphed into more of an assist man, although he's got a damned good shot.

I would try to keep this team intact as much as possible. The net change has been made and has sent the signal that we are moving forward without Smith and/or Ellis for 2011/2012.

Gagne could sign a smaller contract this off season as I do not think you could justify a contract of the same amount or higher.

You are forgetting about that Stamkos raise...

Hard to predict what will be done, but can't imagine all of the same guys back....

No I am not.

Cap is going up next season. We will be about 11 million under the cap, but we do not want to spend it all nor am I suggesting we should.

I am a little worried about the Stamkos contract. I worry that he maybe trying to get as much as he can and thus no deal as of today. Is he waiting to see how many goals he can pot and then request so much money that it hurts the rest of the team signings? Does SY think he may have to blow this team up in order to resign Stamkos thus now the push for this year? Other wise just do it as he is going to be a very wealthy player.

Gagne is going to be commanding less then he is currently getting.

Philly may offer Gagne a deal better than the one he is getting to get him back. Yes I know they're close to cap hell but that hasn't stopped Homer before.

I know he just reeks of hockey sense, but Gagne and his 12 points are exactly impressing a lot of folks. At this point I'm just hoping he's gearing up for a stretch run and then a deep playoff run.

I think Gagne will be better down the stretch, but I think I'd rather see his money spent on Stamkos' re-signing and also either getting a goaltender like Vokoun or trying to bring Brad Richards back to Tampa Bay (at which point maybe you give Roloson a one-year deal to be a 42 year old playing behind the most powerful offensive team assembled since the Pens in the early 90's).

Why would he have any interest in going back there?

They changed his stat line after the game, then. He had 3-1-4 right after the game with 2 of those goals being empty netters.
