    I was kind of irked when we made this trade because we lost Quincey on waivers to begin with. But the cool thing about this trade - Quincey was actually playing for Colorado but they would not deal him to us. So instead, Yzerman traded for him and then IMMEDIATELY traded him to us. Heard Colorado was pissed... So that kind of makes it better!

    Buyout

    Not sure if this is well known or not, but I find these NTC terms interesting. Here is Abbys: CLAUSE DETAILS: NTC in 2016-17 to 2019-20; Modified NTC in 2020-21 to 2022-23 (If Detroit misses playoffs or Abdelkader is not among the Top 9 F in TOI, he can be traded to any team - clause resets in each of the last 3 years) Here is Helm's CLAUSE DETAILS: Full NTC throughout (2018-19: NTC may be voided between June 15, 2019 & 2019-20 NHL Trade deadline, if player is not in the Top 9 F in TOI, or if team does not qualify for the playoffs | 2019-20: NTC may be voided between June 15, 2020 & final day of the contract, if player is not in the Top 9 F in TOI, or if team does not qualify for the playoffs) Nielsen has a modified 10 team no trade list starting this season Ericsson has a M-NTC starting this season that allows him to submit a 19 no trade list! DeKeyser has a NTC until the season after next where he has a 10 team no trade clause like Nielsen. Daley has a NTC until next season. It is modified 10 days before the trade deadline where he can supply a 15 team no trade list (Wow! he could put damn near every playoff team making it impossible for us to trade him next season if he wanted to!) Source: CapFriendly.com I have a question if anyone knows the answer to it: Can we trade Abby whilst retaining part of his cap hit on our books for the remainder of his contract? For example, this year when we traded Nyquist we retained something like 1.25mil so his salary would fit in SJ's cap. Can we do that, but for multiple seasons if we can find a trade partner to take him for say, half his salary?

    Wait - is really likely that Crawford's career is done??? I mean, that's pretty crazy if so.

    Sedin Twins Calling it a Career After Season

    Wow I'm glad you said something - i didn't even watch the video all the way through. Could be wrong, but I doubt officials in other sports show that kind of respect to players! Ya, I know now what happened....I just felt that there was no mention of what was happening at the time, like we just kind of forgot about him until one day everyone was like, "Oh ya, Franzen's career is done, no biggie."

    Sedin Twins Calling it a Career After Season

    Am I the only one who feels what happened with Franzen is extremely bizarre? I mean, maybe I was just way out of the loop and didn't realize it....but I just remember thinking one day that Franzen had been out of the lineup for an inordinate amount of time with not much talk about why and he just never....ever came back. I just thought, ok - it sucks he's out for the season it seems, but he should be ready to go next season. And then you see him on LTIR the next year and i'm thinking....how the hell is that possible? And then casually I learn that it's common knowledge that his career is just done with very little acknowledgement....no swan song....no nothin. Does anybody else feel like this or was I just not paying attention?

    Sedin Twins Calling it a Career After Season

    Glad you pointed that out - I overlooked that! But look at the games for Forsberg -- he really was a beast when healthy, as much as I hated the guy! If he played as many games as Sundin he would be far and away the leading point scorer.

    Sedin Twins Calling it a Career After Season

    I agree. I think there is some chance - maybe not much - that he hangs em up even after this season. He goes from a 7mil salary this season to a 3.35mil salary next. Afterwards, he's at 1mil. I don't see him sticking around for that. Has there been any inkling at all of Z retiring after this season? Any word of him guaranteeing a return next season?
  13. https://www.tsn.ca/sedins-close-careers-on-classy-thoughtful-note-1.1044626 Truthfully, I feel like I never got to see these two guys often enough to genuinely appreciate them. I hate to say it, but I feel like they would have been even more appreciated in the world of hockey and the sports world in general had they played in a better market.

    Wings Recall Hicketts

    No worries. Some days I'm defensive of Holland where I think that the rebuild is just a necessary evil and missing the playoffs and having bad contracts is part of the process. Which honestly, it is always eventually. Other days I'm like "WTF Holland....Trade Zetterberg! Trade Kronwall! Trade Abdelkader! - Sign Martin St. Louis out of retirement and trade him for a 2nd rd! - Sign Jagr - I don't care if it doesn't make sense!"
