    Ryan Whitney

    I don't know if Ryan Whitney is any good - I think the injuries have taken its toll and playing on the Oilers have made him a lot worse than he actually is. I don't think the Wings are in a position to take on another Quincey type 'hope' project, though.

    Howard = Average

    I've always been of the opinion that you do not pay any goalie more than 5m per season. I don't care if it's Henrik Lundqvist or Patrick Rinne, no goaltender is worth that in a capped league. The biggest reason for this is the uncertainty of the position, when your big money goalie has a bad night they can cost you a game, when your big money forward or defensemen has a bad night it may result in a minus or zero points, but a loss isn't always the worst case scenario. In the case of Jimmy Howard, I think he's a really good goalie, I think he's a homegrown talent and we can win with him. But the problem is if he asks for more than 4m/season the best thing to do would be to let him walk. There's too many decent goalies available to wrap that much cap space into that position.
  4. Fantastic news. The amount of offensive zone time should improve and in turn, so should the defense.

    Semin re-signs 1 yr $6.7M

    On a one year deal? He's definitely that good. He signed a one-year deal last time too, he's said he's more comfortable with it and the WSH GM says he'll sign him to one-year deals for the rest of his career.

    Another idea for GM's - Shorten Season to 70-74 games

    Salaries would end up being lowered due to a lower cap because of less revenue.
