    Dylan Larkin Signs ($6.1M x 5 yrs)

    Ya I think he's done too. Currently zero cap space with the UFAs and extensions this summer, gotta be a strong feeling (or it's definitely known) within management that he won't be playing. I figure anyways, since the team is in a rebuild and shouldn't be at the cap limit.

    Yzerman vs Fedorov. Which one was better?

    Yeah, he'd already held out for money once, which made his jumping ship look a even worse. Dats only had one season left, he should have just finished it. I get wanting to be close to family, but he signed with a team hours away from them after returning to Russia. That didn't help his cause with the Detroit fanbase. Both situations sucked.

    Vladimir Konstantinov

    Tremendous player, tremendous loss. I always held out hope he'd somehow make it back on the ice, even though i knew he wouldn't.

    Good signing. Had be done. If Z ends up on LTIRetirement, Larkin's salary is a wash for a couple seasons.

    Yzerman vs Fedorov. Which one was better?

    Yzerman was the more complete player, but Fedorov was more skilled. Either way, Yzerman is a hallowed figure in Detroit, and Fedorov tarnished his legacy. Like Dats.

    Andreas Athanasiou Officially Signed 2 yrs. $3M AAV

    Yeah, i don't see AA ever being a gritty player. Def a finesse guy. His skating ability is just unreal. I don't think i've ever seen a guy fly end to end like he does, just massive strides and hes gone.

    Which Goalie Will Have The Better Season?

    It's not impossible. But he'd have to smarten the hell up.

    Abdelkader Needs To Go

    Where is Abby going to go? His contract assures he remains a Wing till it expires. He won't even be trade bait at the deadline in his final season. Screwed.

    Andreas Athanasiou Officially Signed 2 yrs. $3M AAV

    AA\s speed alone is worth his contract. Look what Holland gave Helm for his speed and...nothing else. At least AA can put the puck in the net as well.

    Which Goalie Will Have The Better Season?

    Yeah, his attitude did stink. I always thought it was because he held a grudge that Howard was never moved to make way for him, but he had some fits in Philly too. As for adjustments, he knows what works for him, and when he sticks with that, he's fine. There's no real flaws in his playing style when he puts in a complete effort. Seems like he can be razor sharp and focused and ready to dominate one night, then the next game he doesn't give a s***. That's where consistancy issues bite him in the ass. Be interesting to see if he can put in a solid season and stick around, or slack off and get sent back to the CR for good. Some of that may be wishful thinking. Bernier is signed for three years and Howard may be done in Detroit after this season. People are just hoping, like myself, that he can take over so we don't have to re-sign Howard or another goalie for $3-5 million next July.
  13. If Howard is moved at the deadline or is let walk, Bernier may get the reigns full time. Depends how he plays leading up to that of course

    Which Goalie Will Have The Better Season?

    Yeah. I do like AA with his speed and hands, but he's gotta step up more. He's got a 2 year show me deal for more money now, maybe we see some jump.
  15. Shocked me as well, but it's two way and it's league minimum. Bernier, I dunno. He's moved around a lot in his fairly short career. He could. Probably split with Howard until the team decides what his future with the team is, then will get a chance to take over i think.
