My Dream Offseason

Pretty simple. Here is what I want to see the roster look like and how I think Holmgren can get there:

FORWARDS
Bobby Ryan ($5.100m) / Claude Giroux ($3.750m) / Jakub Voracek ($4.250m)
Scott Hartnell ($4.750m) / Brayden Schenn ($3.110m) / Nathan Horton ($5.200m)
Tye McGinn ($0.775m) / Sean Couturier ($1.375m) / Wayne Simmonds ($3.975m)
Maxime Talbot ($1.750m) / Scott Laughton ($1.107m) / Zac Rinaldo ($0.750m)
Jay Rosehill ($0.675m) / Jason Akeson ($0.900m)

DEFENSEMEN

Andrej Meszaros ($4.000m) / Mark Streit ($5.250m)
Kimmo Timonen ($6.000m) / Nicklas Grossmann ($3.500m)
Luke Schenn ($3.600m) / Erik Gustafsson ($1.400m)

Bruno Gervais ($0.825m)

GOALTENDERS
Steve Mason ($1.500m)
Anton Khudobin ($1.350m)
OTHER
Buyout: Oskars Bartulis ($0.100m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $65,174,594; BONUSES: $2,960,000
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $2,085,406

1) Trade for Bobby Ryan and Anaheim's first round pick (26th). Send them Braydon Coburn, Matt Read and the Flyers' first round pick (11th). I would much rather not swap first round picks though. Perhaps a 2nd rounder in '13 or the first rounder in '14 gets the deal done.

2) Sign Horton, Khudobin and Gus. I gave each a raise based on my expectations, but admittedly the numbers are somewhat arbitrary.

3) ***Huge assumption*** Put Pronger on LTIR. I've read this section of the CBA and it looks like the Flyers can do this before the season starts. I've heard from everyone and their mother that it can't be done, but one of the CBA illustrations shows it can and nothing in there explicitly says otherwise.

Things you might be thinking:

-What about next year? $2M left over plus $10M off the books in Mez and Timmonen leaves just enough to give Giroux (+4M), Couturier (+1M), and Schenn (+1M) raises, while signing a solid d-man (4M) and a weak d-man (+1M) and throwing an extra million to Mason. If he shines and deserves more, then that's a problem I'd gladly welcome.

-Mason and Khudobin?? I would like to see both young guys battle it out. They can't BOTH be busts...right?
