Another Rosterbating Thread

This morning I decided I should try using the Capgeek Armchair GM function for the first time. Very cool tool, except that it doesn't judge me on how feasible a trade is, a free agent signing is worth, etc.

Now, I'll be the first to admit that I'm highly influenced by others who post on this board. But I'm also one to fantasize about all the what-if's and what-could-happens when it comes to free agency. So I thought that I would make a lot of changes if I used this function. I was surprised by the result...

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)

SALARY CAP: $71,100,000; CAP PAYROLL: $67,324,545; BONUSES: $635,000
CAP SPACE (24-man roster): $3,775,455

To upgrade our D, I decided to trade Kindl & Andersson for Byfuglien, who would also improve our PP immensely. Not sure if that's feasible (with draft picks), but oh well.

I also opted to resign Alfredsson and Tatar while letting others walk, Gustavsson included, to bring up Mrazek. Lastly, I would like to see Z & Dats separated to make our top 2 lines even more dynamic, but I can't do that without adding a scorer, so I decided to go with Gaborik over Vanek, Moulson, etc.

Not really sure why I'm sharing this, but maybe it'll spark some more rosterbation and thoughts.
