Hahahaha. No way the Wings can afford $4.56 million. I'd much rather have Osgood for $1.5 million and not have to give up anything.

biggrin.gif Yeah right!Bringing Belfour in would put us at 31 or 32 million dollars with only 15 players signed.Not happening.

There's always a chance he would rework it, but I'm not sure if I'd want him here either.

how could he rework it? I thought reconstructuring contracts wasn't allowed?

he has a high price tag and is old so it does fit to hollands likeing but, i dont even see him doing something this bad, and IMO our goalie should be legace next year.
respect all, but fear none.

Spector's Rumor

Well, go to trade rumors. Then look in terror as you see:

Belak, Belfour
FOR
Zetterberg

Finally, scream.

Seriously, this would be the biggest waste Ken Holland could possibly do. Zets is a up and coming star, while Belak is a #6 Dman and Belfour MIGHT be able to play one more year.

Maybe Belfour and Sundin and Steen and a first rounder for Zetterberg.

I dont know if he meant to say that or if he meant to say he might accept less money from the Wings.

Also, Eklund said Boston is interested. Why the hell is Boston interested in Belfour? Andrew Raycroft is going to be a star for many, many years to come and no team needs a $4.56 million backup. Heck, the $1.14 million for Legace to backup here is too much.

He also says Boston is interested in Belfour. This could mean 1 of 2 things..

1.) Eklund has no credibility whatsoever.

2.) A 3 team deal between Toronto, Detroit, and Boston could go down. Thornton, Raycroft, Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Belfour are some of the names that could be involved I guess.
In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.

I agree, if this ludicrous deal goes down I will throw away all of my love for hockey scared.gif

Yeah, that's what I meant...I should have reworded it. I meant that he might accept less to come here.
