They said on CBC hot stove that the cap was going up $900k to $57.7m for next year largely b/c of strong Canadian dollar this year. Huge for the Red Wings if true!

It's not whether he can afford to pay them, it's if we can keep all the players we want to keep.

Lidstrom $4MM.... Please Captain, help us get stronger next year!!!

Re-sign Lids, Homer, Bertuzzi, Helm, Abdelkader, Miller, Eaves. The problem is going to be what Bertuzzi is gonna ask for, Anaheim is still paying $1.333MM of his salary from 2007, does that mean he is gonna want $3MM or more? If he wants $3MM with Lidstrom (praying hopefully) takes $4MM that'll leave Holland $10MM to shore up our wanted UFA/RFA and MAYBE get some UFA help from outside the organization!

Does anyone know which RFA's in GRR are out of options? We all know Abdelkader will be here for sure, but who else has to be or risk being waived? Other than Ritola?

Anyhow, I do believe Holland can get Abdelkader, Helm, Miller & Eaves all re-signed for less than $4MM total. Homer should take $2MM or a little less (please Homer!) What about Lilja? Do we re-sign him or use his $1.2 elsewhere? Ledba and Meech can leave, whatever we get in return for Meech (he's a RFA) will be worth it. Not unless he re-signs for the same money. Maltby should retire also. Williams can do what he pleases, thanks for the help.

So:

Helm, Eaves, Abdelkader, Miller - $2.7MM
Bertuzzi - $3MM
Holmstrom - $2MM
Lilja - $1MM
Lidstrom - $4MM (PLEASE NICK!!!!!!)
Ritola - $0.5MM

That's $13.2MM leaving roughly $4.5MM. They'll need a 7th defensman, is Kindl ready or will they keep Meech around?

My wish? Ladd or Tkachuk up front. (Tkachuk shouldn't cost too much.)

I still think that Lidstrom will be the highest paid defenseman no matter what.

You think Lidstrom will ask for more than 6 million at age 40? :lol: Don't count on it.

To even think were going to get Marleau for that price is laughable :P
..but i do believe we need another offensive forward , and a shut down defensive player.

He is still the best defenseman on the team.

Maybe he won't ask and will indeed take a sizable pay cut. But regardless, even at 40 he still deserves 6M+.

He is still the best defenseman on the team in the league


Sorry, just fine-tuning your quote.

Abs wont be playing for .6m. Right now hes making 850,000 a year and he wont take pay cut. I tihnk you'll see Helm and Abdelkader both at about a million. Marleau wont be here, I really wouldnt want him anyways. I would rather take that 5 million and either add more scoring depth down on the bottom lines, not a 40 goal scorer but maybe 2 20 goal scorers and then sign someone intimidating to play with Abs and mentor him. I'm thinking Asham is the guy, he can score and fight. He would be worth letting Miller walk if need be.

Well I think it's that he gets paid a rate towards a salary of 850k only for games he played as a Red Wing. As a Griffin or anything else he gets MUCH less.

Unless they're going to drive a really hard bargain I want the Wings to keep Helm, Eaves and Miller. Draper, Cleary and Maltby can't be cornerstones of the PK anymore.
