Dipping into FA

Created by: Hockey_Mind
Initial Creation Date: May 9, 2022
Published: May 9, 2022
Team: 2022-23 Columbus Blue Jackets
Team Explanation
If a trade can’t be made, Jarmo could go to FA for a RD. There are no great options but a few decent ones that can bridge the gap for 2-3 years while Peeke, Boqvist and Ceulemans mature.

This is exactly the target we should be going for a short term right shot defenseman who is gonna cost less than 3 million. I really want Ilya lybushkin (sorry for spelling). But he seems to have a home with Morgan Reilly so that’s unlikely.

That’s is the Leafs can afford to keep him, but I agree Lybushkin is the best option too.

I've thought Gudbranson would be a great pickup. RD, plays primarily a defensive game, and has the size Jarmo has said he wants to add to the team. Plus, he'll likely come cheap. And since CGY is in a cap crunch as it is, I think he'll hit the market.

Rutta, Lybushkin, and Zadorov (in that order) are also good options, imo.

I like Lybushkin but I don’t see him leaving Toronto, plus I feel he and Gudbranson will want more term than should be offered by CBJ. Anything longer than 2 years could become a handicap. Rutta is most realistic and best fit IMO. I love Zadorovs game but he doesn’t fit with this roster.
