Very cheap FAs (who can hit, play defense, score, or ideally all three) include.
-Ville Peltonen, had a cap hit of 1.2 million. Can put up double digits in goals, though he's quite old. Then again, playing on Florida isn't going to do wonders for offense. Isn't big or a great hitter, but has guts (see fight against Artyukhin).
-Blair Betts, cap hit of 615k. Sound defensively.
-Manny Malhotra, cap hit of 1.2 million.
-Taylor Pyatt, 1.575 million. Had a 23-goal season in 06-07.
-Richard Zednik, 1.625 million. Had 17 goals in 70 games last year (in Florida).
-Joel Lundqvist, 725k. Henrik's twin brother. Could maybe play in goal if Howard plan falls through.
Etc.

I tried to find people who haven't been mentioned. I'm not saying I like them all, but I figured I'd put them out and see what people think.

Mats Sundin... $2 mil for 1 year. He doesn't need anymore money, he does need a Cup and why not do it with many of his fellow countrymen that he won a gold medal with?

If not Sundin, then probably Moen. That way Z could take a break from the PK.

1. He doesn't want to play for the wings, he's stated that a few times already
2. He will most likely retire now, decision will come in a few weeks.

I don't know if he has been picked up over the past day or so - I have kinda been outta the loop. I know his name has been thrown around though - Mark Bell.

I understand his past legal issues but the kid has the potential to be a star. Scoring touch, more then willing to drop em when neccessary and great hockey sense. Unfortunately his off the ice sense has reason to be suspect - but I think that the Wings could really score a diamond here.

Not to mention the leadership from top down in the Wings organization that would help keep Bell in check. I just think that this could be a huge addition to the Wings - and for cheap.

He made 2.5 million last season - or rather, he would have, had he not spent the better part of the season in the minors.

If Bell gets a contract anywhere it'll be for a 1mil or less. He's had problems, but I have no problem with reclamation projects.

A tough guy, that is a two way player with some scoring ability. Sounds good to me (in reference to Mark Bell)

I would love to see Tanguay come to Motown. I know Kenny has said that we will trade a D man after camp so if its Lil's than that gives us an extra bit on $ to play with. Give him a 2 yr contact, the second year more lucrative...2yrs, 6.5.
If that wont work, Id like to see Moen or Kotelik.
No Sammy, No Huds, No Hossa....we need some goals here!

I would take any of these. If Abs is going to be playing in Det, it needs to be with the third line. Therefore, the Wings need a 4th liner who can be physical (hit and drop them) and responsible defensively.

Its official. Juri Hudler has agreed to a 1 year, $2 million contract with Dynamo Moscow of the KHL.

So who do we try and sign to fill the hole?? possibly Alex Tanguay wink.gif
Or do we try and make a trade?


Tanguay??? uhhhh yeah, no way we will get him without having to make a trade, and with the injuries he has had the past few years, there is no logic to trading away someone to sign him... no thanks

OK so there seems to be a lot of panic on this fom about not signing players to deals and losing players...Yes it sucks but we are very deep and in GR we have some talent that is ready to make the jump and could be tradable at the deadline if need be. This is how things will work for the wings and most other teams wanting to hold on to a their 5 or so big name players. Teams will fill the third and fourth lines with young talent or older cheap vets this is a salary cap folks it's not the end of the world.

The wings will be godd because they will have youth and enthusiasm pushing the vets on the team and i for one love it. they just have to make sure they hit everything thatr moves even if it's their own players...

I think the golas will be replaced buy Cleary who will now be a top 6 forward and Fil. Think about who we had when the cup was won in 08 there was no Hossa and Huds was a fourth liner and sammy was sammy and we scored way more because of Pav and Z playing on the same line they are magic together.

Peter Sykor could be a cheaper answer for some goal scoring.
