We have five mil to work with in salary this season, but next season, assuming we do not plan on resigning Lang, we will likely have over nine mil (assuming a cap increase) work with for additions to next years roster. While Datsyuk and Schneider will likely require additional funds if we choose to retain them, there is tons of room in the wings payroll to absorb some salary from players aquired via trade this year.

While I am sure that we will have a good chunk of than ready to put towards the UFA market next summer, it seems the wings are well suited to go after some players with a few years to go on their contracts instead of the UFA rental. We have heard all the big UFA names on the market, but what teams or players are looking to gid rid of salary or have overstayed their welcome?

I have the suspicion that whoever, if anyone, we acquire at the deadline will be somewhat unexpected. So if your were going to go big, drop a roster player or some draft picks on a non-rental, who would or could it be?

Where did you get these numbers? We have $2 million free right now and $25 million free next season.
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.

Du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du,
When I see you Red Wings,
I go out of my head,
I just can't get enough,
I just can't get enough,
All the things you do to me and all the things you said,
I just can't get enough.
I just can't get enough
We slip and slide and we fall in love and I just can't seem to get enough of...
Du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du

Let's go with Sidney Crosby. We'll pay the Pens $10 mill straight-up for contract rights, then offer the Kid the idea of us paying off his $15 mill room service bill from Ovechkin.


No, it's definitely excitement.
