    Abdelkader on unconditional waivers for buyout

    Would that stop us from sending players down or call them up? The AHL still exists, even when they are not playing.

    Wings have caps space all the way from Detroit to Europe and the roster spot could have been freed by sending Abby to GR. Honestly I can't see any other reason than making a big move at Krug or other big FAs. Which btw would mean we officially abandon the tank.

    Exactly my thoughts. I hope Stevie is up to something with this.

    2020 Draft Thread

    Most important night of the season. Thank god it's only randomness we rely upon and not our team.

    2020 Offseason

    Would be great, alone or the entertainment value. But we all know it won't happen since NHL GMs are boring and timid as hell, especially when it comes to offer sheets.

    Howard = Average

    Was Howard a good, above average goaltender ? Yes. But that is not the point. He is old. And that simply makes it very unlikely that he will back to his former self. Could he maybe? Yes, as goaltending is voodoo. But the chances a slim. And we don't have to gamble on them, especially with the alternatives there are on the market. Only thing that is in favor of rehiring Howard is, that we probably won't be a playoff team next season with or without him. So the negative impact of his hiring would be minimal. We could even help the tank with it. But it's not fair hiring a guy with that premise.

    Howard = Average

    It's exactly like the Dan Cleary situation, even worse. Goalies are more important than 4th-line wingers.

    NHL Season officially suspended until further notice - March 12, 2020

    A German expert stated that stadiums here in Europe will probably open not earlier than September. You are one or two weeks behind us. So I think this season is over.

    We have to look at this trough a political lens. The Board of Governors probably will have to approve the steps taken by the league. At least they will have a big influence on the decision. And they will chose the solution that will hurt them the least financially.

    Day 57? I always thought this to be the usual behavior in Seattle.

    Only if you don't consider, that there is a lot of money lost or won for the teams concerning this. If the NHL finds a financial solution for the teams that are on the bubble but out of a playoff spot no owner or GM would probably mind playing the usual format. Otherwise the league has to get creative.

    In order to stay save wash your hands properly! LGW!

    This. They probably rather cancel the playoffs or even the rest of the season entirely, than carry any delay over into the next season.

    It's the right move.
