Description
Reasoning for trade/signing

Trade 1: Does depend on there being a RHD available at 12th, personally think it will be close. But if someone is, trade up and select them.

Trade 2: Dump Ben Chiarot to a team that is still going to be rebuilding. He'll keep them in the lottery and could be a trade piece later on if he plays well. Does have to remove NTC.

Trade 3: Love Fabbri, but is made of glass my guy. Moving on from him is the right move. Does have the passion that you look for and is a good player. Ducks could use some offense so they don't rely just on their goalie every night.

Trade 4: Zadina and Veleno leaving this offseason is a guarantee, Nashville need to offload RHD men. They also could use that bottom 6 help in the two forwards.

Signing 1: Raanta is likely gone in free agency, scooping up a decent vet on a good deal like him is smart. Cossa is still 2-3 years away from NHL ready, think likely closer to 2 right now.

Signing 2: Has been mutual interest between Klingberg and Detroit. Detroit needs a RHD vet to let who they select at the draft develop. 3 years at most it would likely take, 3-5 years at around 5mil.

Signing 3: Carrier acquired by trade, cheap deal maybe considering missed half of last season? Plays on 3rd pair and depth guy.

Signing 4: Suter is your vet bottom 6 centre, give him around 3mil. Key PK guy.

Signing 5: Hagg will be your 7th D, don't over spend.

Signing 6: Bring Ganger back, that's your 4th line winger.

Signing 7: Is it possible to convince him to come to Detroit to be a 4th line winger? Likely not but maybe it is, 1.5mil for 2 years is a fairish deal

Signing 8: Just an extra forward, cheap and not bad player

Yeah, but we also expect our guys to be hard to play against and have some grit, so the "made of glass" part is a major deal breaker for us.

But think about it this way; Made of Glass ~= Heart of Glass, which is a banger of a song.

Fabbri has zero value, I'd just keep carrier h'ell be cheaper than Veleno and Zadina together, dumping Chairot probably costs more. The ufa targets are fine except I'm not paying suuter 3 million dollars to be a 4th line center. I don't see Arizona trading picks but day of draft who knows

Yzerman did not sign Chiarot just to dump him a year later. There is 21 million in Cap space, so what is the point? Just wasting a high pick. Take Chiarot out of the lineup and we are getting bullied even more. Veleno should also stay, he brings that physicality and speed this team needs. He's been Canada's best forward at the WC. Breakout season coming.
We need to get tougher and bigger as a team, this is the opposite.

I dislike Chairot but paying to move him is a bad idea especially since Detroit is at least a couple seasons away from the playoffs.

I agree.
What is the point when there is over 20 million in Cap space. Creator himself said that if Chiarot plays well, he could be a trade piece. But why would Detroit not tryna do that😅? Just wasting a high 2nd round pick with this move.

But there is a good chance we won't be in much better shape than we are now. We lack high end offensive talent and the odds of getting that picking outside the top 3 (top 5 this year) isn't very good.

At first I thought you were talking about Bioshock.

Rapture is kinda good, but I hate the nonsensical-ness of it.
