  1. Sheahan and a 5th for Wilson and a 3rd

    Seems more like Holland's folly is collecting average forward talent and overpaying them in follow-on contracts. Just because you draft kids and wait 6-7 years doesn't mean you are on a solid path to championships.

    I'm just glad we got rid of Sheahan, should have been done months ago but its finally done. Free up that ice time for someone who can use it and take that option away from Blashill during power plays lol.

    Yeah we know how it works. Piss off the young kids that are your building blocks of the future because you can. Overspend on worthless vets cause they have leverage

    Once he is signed maybe Blashill can teach him a lesson and give Sheahan his minutes.

    Glad we don't need any young dynamic game breaking talent...what a waste.

    Maybe thats Kenny's bargaining position. Vanek is no longer here to assist you and we have the scoring juggernauts of Nyquist, Sheahan and Tatar to offset your production.

    Next year Mantha and Larkin will be junior guys not worth investing coin on either right? Will everyone quickly bid them adios when they ask for $4Mill each? AA was a bright spot last year constantly in Blashill's dog house due to his defense as a forward and an after thought in negotiations due to Holland's past bad contracts and inability to make a trade. Tatar shouldn't have been signed and Nyquist, Nielsen or Sheahan dealt. If things are tight now what happens next year when Holland's GM skills are on display again with an even worse cap situation? Sorry AA you deserved a better fate both from a coach and from an organization.

    Nice Z lit the light on opening night.

    Season starts no AA, no trade, Holland is so predictable to solve his cap issues.
  10. Athanasiou Signed 1 year $1.4 mil

    Hoping we can sign AA sometime this year and any deals made can be done by the next GM. I really want to see no deals where Kenny trades for "top-end" defensive talent.

    Nyquist better than AA....really?? Far better? Good Lord what game do you guys watch? A small scoring forward who can't score is better than AA?? OK I guess you'll be content when he walks and you watch Nyquist do nothing again this year.

    The problem isn't signing Daley. That was an excellent move. The problem is stockpiling worthless talent on overpaid contracts and never making a trade when needed. AA, Mantha and Larkin are the future. I'm not sure why we need to keep treating them all like garbage and telling them to leave if they don't fit Holland's crappy old world negotiating style. I hope AA signs for 2 years $3Mill per and Holland is forced to trade Sheahan or Nyquist.
  13. Athanasiou Signed 1 year $1.4 mil

    AA was one of the only few worth a damn last year. He signs every other idiot but takes a stand on the one guy I like watching. Maybe I can find an AK Bars link to see until Holland leaves.
  14. What Is Your #Hype Level Re: the Red Wings' 2017-18 Season?

    My meter is off until I see AA signed.
  15. Athanasiou Signed 1 year $1.4 mil

    Are we waiting for similar talent contract for comparison guidelines or for Kenny to free up salary cap space?
