    They'd match, then pray for the LTIR fairy to visit There were 2 offers. 2x$1.9 and 1 year at $1.4. That's a lowball. Leverage or not, AA should be getting more than either of those deals, that's been the market for similar RFA's.
  2. Pierre McGuire on Wings-Tavares

    Even if Tavares wanted to sign here Holland has the team loaded with contracts that he's have to pay to move
  3. Athanasiou Rumor

    Teams rarely give players offer sheets because they know the original team will match. It's a waste of time
  4. Athanasiou Rumor

    Well, the argument goes, if they give AA $2.5 mil, what do they have to pay him on his next deal? What do they have to pay Larkin and Mantha? You have to control costs for younger players. So that you can give grinders approaching their 30th birthday big contracts, and vet free agents that might help you squeak in as the 8th seed contracts.

    Because not even the Russians want him
  6. DRW Training Camp 2017

    Vets will all bounce back ,play like they're 29 and healthy, and the team will win the Cup. At least that's what Kenny hopes
  7. Will Tyler Bertuzzi Make the Team Out of Camp?

    That doesn't mean he's a legit #2 center anymore. Green was their best defenseman, that doesn't mean he's a #1.
  8. Will Tyler Bertuzzi Make the Team Out of Camp?

    Nielsen isn't as good as he once was, and on a good team he probably would be a 3rd line center. As far as trading Sheahan goes, it'll be a salary dump. I'd rather move Glendening, personally, but I don't know if anyone would take him with his contract. Sheahan at least only has one year left.

    We have to see how Holland fixes the cap mess first.
  10. Will Tyler Bertuzzi Make the Team Out of Camp?

    Probably not. If AA isn't signed they'll keep one of the vets on a PTO. Miss the playoffs by a mile? Why make any significant roster changes or get a new coach? Let's just hope everyone who had a down year improves and that adding a 2nd pair caliber D to a team with zero first pair D will make all the difference in the world.
  11. Former Red Wing, Drew Miller gets PTO with Blackhawks

    if he has a great year it will be in the AHL. He was a good soldier here, but he's slowed down.
  12. Wonder what the odds are for the 1st overall...

    at least be in the hunt, if the goaltending holds up

    The problem is, Blashill doesn't seem to want decent defense, he expects everyone to have a defense first mentality. He's like a not very bright politician sticking to a few buzz words in an interview. Defend. Heavy on the puck. Play heavy. Good in corners. Net front. Blah blah blah. While he does that, he ignores his players' strengths and tries to fit them into his predetermined roles he wants them to play.
  14. Athanasiou Rumor

    Defense is good. Defense at the cost of having little offensive attack is bad. I prefer the best defense is a good offense approach. Blashill seems to prefer sitting in a shell all game getting out shot, as long as most of those shots aren't "prime" chances. That's a loser mentality. Let's try to not lose and hope the other team makes some mistakes that we can capitalize on, as opposed to let's force them to make mistakes through pressure.

    It lets KA "prove" his point
