from Jeff Simmons of Sportsnet,
Sportsnet.ca broke down the possible candidates for all 30 clubs back in January when the lockout came to an end, and after a shortened season we take a second look at where each team stands heading into the summer.
We looked at the Eastern Conference on Wednesday, and now we’ll finish up our look around the league with the Western Conference:
Note: All numbers below according to capgeek.com
Projected 2013-14 cap space: $8.6 million
Who we said in January: Sheldon Souray
Who we’re saying now: Bryan Allen ($3.5 million cap hit until 2014-15)
Coming into the season, this looked like an obvious choice. But to the surprise of many, Souray was able to revitalize his career in Anaheim in 2013. The Ducks won’t mind bringing him back to help boost their offence from the back end. The more logical choice here could be Allen — who didn’t exactly make an impact in his first season with the Ducks with just six points in 41 games. Souray may be four years older, but he has scored four more points and had a significantly higher plus/minus rating.
