Should Hudler, Sammy, and Hossa demand too much money, would you welcome back:

1. The Swan Song: Brendan Shanahan @ 1 year, 500-850k, third line role, PP specialist

Or

2. Philly's Salary Cap Victim: Mike Knuble @ 1-2 years, 1.5-2.2M, third line/2nd line role, PP specialist



Keep in mind the obvious: If Shanahan and Knuble want more money, then these scenarios are out the door.

Shanny is not Dallas Drake. Just because they're both old, it doesn't mean that Shanahan would be Drake v 2.0. Drake was an energy guy that was hungry for a cup, and played with a reckless abandon to get it.

Shanahan is an elderly sniper that used to be a power forward and wouldn't help our team very much. In 34 games last year, he finished with 14 pts, and more importantly a -2. You actually believe that he'd sniff a spot on the PK?

Knuble would be great, but I don't think that we'd pay him what he get in other cities, so unless he really wanted to come back to Detroit, I don't think it would ever happen.

This is more like Greg Johnson 2.0... rolleyes.gif

I would welcome back Shanahan + sign Moen.

By Dallas Drake, I mean a former Red Wing coming around for a 2nd tour of duty.

How so? Both guys can still contribute. Especially Knuble. Greg Johnson was the walking dead when he was "signed".

That's it, guys. We came on win within winning the Stanley Cup, but it's time to bring back all the players who couldn't get it done in the years before the Babcock era!


I'd like a player like Shanny used to be, but he's just a shell now and we really need an energy guy with a lot of talent. I'm not really familiar in depth with Knuble, but I hear good things. I don't think he'd take 1 or 2 million, though, even if we had it to offer.

Actually i would simply say... none of those two and just make a call to the U.P. to get Sir Dallas Drake back in the line up

nothing is better than Sir Dallas 1.0 you can't fix perfection even if you put a 2.0 on the end wink.gif biggrin.gif



Just one chance is all i ever wanted...just one time i'd like to win the game...from now on i'll take the chance if i can have it...just one just one

Yeah, if we pick up anyone it's someone who'll block shots or kill penalties. That was our achilles heel, and with Lilja expected to remain out we really need to beef up in that department.

Neither keep Adbelcater (dont feel like looking up how to spell it) Leino and Helm on the roster and sign a decent somewhat younger goalie like maybe Niittymaki or Biron or even scott Clemenson.

I'd like to see Knuble back. Pass on Shanahan. Too slow and too lazy defensively and on the back check.

What about Fedorov?
