this is a good signing if it's true... thomas is a seasoned vet... who will provide depth and good leadership for all of our youth this year... as for GRIGORENKO... he would've been here one or two years ago if not for the accident... he is back to where he was before it and the wings just want to see if he will be worth the investment by allowing to see if he is capable of further evelopment.

Well he is a RW(which the Red Wings are desperately lacking), but damn hes definitely up there in the age department. I mean he did get released by the Wings for a reason. But If hes still got game left, then I guess im ok with it. But if hes got nothing left in the tank then this is just a waste of time and money.

Yzerman and Chelios provide plenty of leadership on their own, not to mention Lidstrom, Draper, and Shanahan.

I'm just sick of people in the hockey world saying Detroit are a bunch of old farts.

And they were saying this back in 2002.

I was very jealous of Calgary's fast young hungry gritty team in the 04 playoffs.

Please, I do not want Detroit to be old and slow any longer. I would rather miss the playoffs.

Maybe Thomas is a fall back option in case the Datsyuk meeting/decision doesn't go our way on Sunday. If we are not getting Datsyuk, I could see Stumpy being part of an "offense by committee" type of situation. He would be a far cheaper option than Bondra (about 20% of what Bondra supposedly wants), and would contribute at both ends of the ice. Whether we get Datsyuk, Thomas, or Bondra, I still see us keeping a few guys from the group mentioned previously (LaCoutre, Murray, et al). If we do get Datsyuk back, however, I also have to say NO WAY to Stumpy!

i think the signing is ok not great but this is the first year cap and a 1 year deal if he sign it will be is a stop gap u gotta look at injurys and stuff if the youth don't play good and we start the season bad he played ok in the end of last season
- the playoff but then again not many play well

i'm not for the signing or againest it but mybe he can still put a bit in for 1 year when a few of our players will have that bit of exp in gr russia ect ....

What is Deadmarsh's current status? Maybe we could invite him to camp too.

Thomas has trouble because of his age, Deadmarsh is 1 hit away from being a cocanut because of his head injuries.

I know all that. The same thing could probably be said for Lindros, Roenick, and several other guys around the league. What I meant is whether Deadmarsh is going to anyone's training camp...planning to retire...etc. Does anyone know?

Leafs signed Czerkawski, invited Keane to camp and essentially have no interest in Thomas anymore.

He's either going to Detroit, or the golf course.

Last I heard, Deadmarsh had pretty much written off ever playing again.

Retire from what I read.

The Wings would be better off signing my pick Sergei Berezin. He is Russian and would come cheap. He knows what reality is.
