WOW..........Details ASAP please!
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

Because there was no confirmed source. It's nothing personal.

Because unless it's official via radio, tv, or a link then it's considered a 'rumor.'

It probably won't be as much as $7 Million (I hope) because the playoffs haven't happened yet....

I'm glad they got this out of the way....
Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

You mean like $7 million/year huge? tongue.gif

I'm guessing 4 years, $25 million.

Sorry about that -- moderators are instructed to move threads that don't cite a source to the "Rumors" forum. My only suggestion that would've prevented it moving would've been to elaborate a bit so everyone knows your connection to Datsyuk (i.e., I manage his official web site, he's a friend, etc.)

Obviously, your connection with him far surpasses what even the local media has. (I didn't see your original thread and I didn't move it.)

BTW -- thank you for the heads-up! LGW had it FIRST! laugh.gif

How many 1st line centers in his age bracket do you get for under 5.5M?

I actually agree and see where Doug is coming from with what he says. I just kinda wanted the pressure on Dats to perform at his best in the playoffs to earn the stay with the Wings. But whatever..signing him is great regardless.
