Just hit the Hendricks Hockey site after lunch to read about Sundin and one the lead articles is that the Wings have offered Jason Williams a $2.5 million contract.


According to the Hockey Insider, Jason Wiliams has been offered a contract by the Detroit Red Wings. The rumored deal is $2.5 million for one year. We have rated this at 80%. There is rumored that he wanted to stay in Columbus, but was never offered a contract.

I would hoenstly rather rip my dick off and throw it in the woods than sign Jason Williams for $2.5M on a one year deal. Honestly, I would be absolutely shocked if Holland made that move. No way is he worth that money. There are better options out there far, far, far cheaper. That would be a huge mistake in my opinion.

I was only joking about not signing with the Wings for 900k. Obviously, I'd play for free. Hell, I'd probably donate my left nut to medical research to play for them.

Dude, somedays, I wish. I've been trying to gain weight and nothing works. The latest suggestion I've gotten is to eat half a can of peanut butter before I go to bed.

Peanut butter comes in cans?

Sounds like a diet I could live with ... nothing better than toast and peanut butter.

Milkshakes are also a good way to put on weight, of course not those protein shakes, real milkshakes. Smoke a lot of pot too.

Can't say I've tried the last bit but the others don't work for me. I'm really ridiculously skinny and I've tried peanut butter, milkshakes, nothing.


Beer. NO light beer. Try some craft-brew stuff when $ isn't an issue. Also, beef jerky. NO fat-free BS.



BTW- Sundin > J Willy.

Detroit Red Wings have made a one-year contract offer to forward Jason Williams, according to sportingnews.com.

Williams, who played for the Wings in 2000-07 before being traded to Chicago, reportedly also is considering joining the Continental Hockey League in Russia. He split last season between Atlanta and Columbus.

Here's a portion of Craig Custance's blog on the subject:

"I'm not going to close the door on (the KHL)," Williams told SportingNews.com. "I know over there they're really trying to compete with the NHL. It's a great league."

Williams still has a home in the Detroit area, one he bought right before he was traded to the Blackhawks. He's renting it out now, and only lived in it for about six months before he left Detroit. The Red Wings would be a natural fit for Williams.

"I'd be going back to a spot I'm familiar with," Williams said. "I know the system they like to play: puck possession, good defense."

Matts is a better player! then Jason Williams so why the F? would they pay this no good piece of s***? 2.5 million dollars to play for them? Sounds f***ed up to me!

The thing is, Shanahan signed with NJ for $800,000. That's not to say Sundin will do the same, I'm just saying, if the Wings are where he wants to be, and they lay it out for him that it will allow them flexibility, then maybe he considers.

BTW, you wouldn't sign with the Wings for $900,000? I'd sign with the Wings if I had to pay them.


Only problem is, I don't see Sundin taking a $3.8 million pay cut.

Obviously you cant compare Sundin to Jason Williams. Maybe Sundin wants more money than we can afford or maybe he doesnt even want to play here. But that doesnt change the fact that a $2.5M/yr contract offer to Williams is bad.

I think the true offer must be more like $1.5M/yr. In my opinion I wouldnt even be too happy with that. It's clear that Williams, who made $2.2M last season, isn't too thrilled with the offer otherwise he would have accepted it.

I would much rather have:

Sundin
Shanahan
Sykora
Bertuzzi
Lang
Comrie
R. Niedermeyer
Grier
Pyatt
Malholtra

over Jason Williams at their appropriate salaries. But that's just my opinion

True - however nobody is beating down his door to sign him.

Same here. I don't want Shanny back at all but I would much rather have him then Williams.

Enough with the Sundin s***. No Cap room, no need for him. Wings already have Maltby as the guy that glides around the ice doing nothing.

True. Rather keep Malts. He may be old and slow and glides around the ice for a few mins per game, but at least he helped us win 4 Cups. Sundin is old and slow and glides around the ice and helped the Leafs ____ ????
New season, New start! May the force be with the Wings this time!

Out of everyone on that list I truly feel like Williams brings the least to the table and wouldn't even be the cheapest to bring on board. I would gladly take Shanahan at 700k than Williams even at $1.5M. Maybe Im biased against Jason Williams but I really dont want him on this team.

Could this all be a ploy to bait Raffi Torres? If so, perhaps the goal is for him to keep away from players that actually contribute something other than frosted tips to a hockey team.

Someone finally mentioned the name of someone I want on the Wings roster even less that Jason Williams...and that's Raffi Torres. No thank you

Wallowing in mediocrity. Mats should've made a push for a Cup before his skills started to diminish, no interest in the Big Soft Swede, if we're talking Torontos Captain for the past decade sure, but he isnt that player anymore.
