    2034 Free Agency:

    Notable Resignings:

    Warren Tanaka
    Cameron Vickers
    Harvey Gryba
    Ola Zetterberg
    Andy Woods
    Andy Cooke
    Kim Hagos
    Laruent Valcourt

    Notable Releases:

    Tyler Conroy
    Louis Durocher

    Free Agent Signings:

    Radoslav Hejda
    Vitali Radulov

    Gryba is the better player compared to Conroy, and only wanted $200,000 more. Thankfully Tanaka and Vickers signed for cheap, so almost the whole team signed. We also made up for what was lost.

    Our record is fine, but every win we get 2 or 3 Goals and every loss we only get 1, so we need help scoring.

    TRADE:

    Dallas Receives:

    K. Hagos (57 Overall Med. Elite LW)
    S. Akeson (76 Overall Low Elite C)

    Detroit Receives:

    J. Madsen (85 Overall Med. Top 6 RW)
    Dallas Stars 2nd Round Pick (2035, 33rd Overall)
    Winnipeg Jets 2nd Round Pick (2035, 47th Overall)

    Strong has one year left on his contract, dropped to 84 Overall, and is unhappy with the team. I acquired a replacement in Madsen, who is only 21 so has much room to grow. We gain a couple of extra picks too, so if I can find a suitor for Strong before free agency I can use those extra picks to move up.
