The cap is expected to go up to 57.7 and if you had to guess what the 2010-2011 roster would look like (not what you would do) but what team Holland and co. will actually ice for next year - what do you think it will end up looking like?

(lines are arbitrary) - this is not a line combo thread, put them together however you'd like and please do not argue line combo's -

My guess is:
Jiri Hudler ($2.875m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Tomas Holmstrom ($2.500m)
Valtteri Filppula ($3.000m) / Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Johan Franzen ($3.955m)
Todd Bertuzzi ($1.500m) / Justin Abdelkader ($0.900m) / Daniel Cleary ($2.800m)
Mattias Ritola ($0.517m) OR Drew Miller / Darren Helm ($1.000m) / Patrick Eaves ($0.750m)
Kris Draper ($1.583m)

Nicklas Lidstrom ($5.500m) / Brian Rafalski ($6.000m)
Brad Stuart ($3.750m) / Niklas Kronwall ($3.000m)
Jonathan Ericsson ($0.900m) / Andreas Lilja ($1.000m)
Jakub Kindl ($0.883m)

Jimmy Howard ($0.717m) / Chris Osgood ($1.417m)

ROSTER: 22; PAYROLL: $57.330m; CAP ROOM: $0.370m BONUSES: $0.000m

Off topic: Draper getting paid $1.583 is ridiculous. On topic: I would not be surprised if Miller did NOT get resigned...he is rather redundant IMO. Also, I doubt that Bertuzzi will be paid $1.5 mil and Holmstrom $2.5.

Draper is already signed for that amount, so there's nothing we can do about it... Miller will be re-signed, Holland has already said he will tender offers to all of his RFA's and with the way he played this past year, unless someone actually signs him to an offer sheet(not likely) and we get draft picks as compensation, I don't see why we wouldn't keep him as a bottom line guy, he's great as an energy guy/PK guy...

I don't see Bert taking a pay cut, so I priced him in at the same price he was already at... as for Holmstrom, his agent said he will not take a home-town discount and wants a raise, so that's the only reason I notched that number in there - when you average it out for a 20-30 goal and 50+ pt guy (not to mention how many more goals are DIRECTLY related to his work in front of the net, 2.5 is not an overpayment...

Note to UFA players who want rasies...... Move on and Move out... If it's true Holmer's agent said that, then adios! Hudler? Trade him at the draft in order to secure Dylan McIlrath. Would also like to see Holland convince Rafalski to waive his NTC..


Holmer ($1.5) / Datsyuk ($6.7) / Franzen ($3.955)

Bertuzzi ($1.5) / Zett ($6.083) / Filppula ($3.0)

Abdelkader ($0.900) / Cleary ($2.800) / Draper ($1.583)

Darren Helm ($0.750) / Miller ($0.600) / UFA ($?.???)

Eaves ($0.550)
Ritola (if he can make the team, just because he is out of options doesn't guarantee him a spot)


Lidstrom ($4.5M) / Rafalski ($6.0)

Stuart ($3.75) / Kronwall ($3.0)

Ericsson ($0.900) / UFA ($?.???)

Kindl ($0.883)


Howard ($.717) / Osgood ($1.417)

Total $51.088 Total - $6.612 avail to better this team....

This defense was absolutely horrible last season, if all Holland does is re-sign the same and replace Lebda/Meech with Kindl, we're in for a CRAPPY season!!!! Since this is not a what would you do thread, I won't get into that, but this is the roster I would like to see, while using the available $6.6M to get a forward and defender to better this club...

Oh, and, Fire McCrimmon.....PLEASE!

edit: Looking at Ritola/Eaves, you could sign Eaves to a similar contract and who ever makes the team, waive the other, salary pretty much a wash...

http://detnews.com/article/20100522/OPINION03/5220399/Re-signing-Tomas-Holmstrom-likely--but-no-slam-dunk-for-Red-Wings

Holmstrom's agent, in an interview with The Hockey News, made it clear his client wasn't offering bargains.

Prefacing his comments by saying a deal with the Wings is probable but not a lock, Howard Gourwitz said, "On the last contract, Tomas took a hometown discount so the organization would have enough cap room to keep everybody here (in Detroit). But at the end of the day, Tomas is going to have to feel he's being treated fairly in the realm of what is taking place in the locker room."

this makes me think he wants a raise, not a huge one, but a slight one... he could very well stay at 2.25 as well, I just don't see him taking a paycut as so many have suggested

so where exactly did I ignore the context of the thread? I didn't put names down,I didn't make a wish list, I gave realistic and cost saving figures. Just because I didn't use our exact roster from last year, I ignored the context? Well, you ignored you;re own context by giving these guys raises based on what you think they will get. Helm at $1M? Please! He's only at $600,000 right now. Do you know how long it took Kris Draper to get his first million plus contract and you wanna throw it at Helm after one season here? Talk about ignoring the context, that is a pipedream. I simply put down what I think the roster will look like, who knows who will be in the UFA slots, but if Holland has any sense, it won't be Lidstrom at $5.5M and Hudler will be gone. Lilja wont be here, and both Miller and Eaves will. You sir should go back and read your original post, then look at what you wrote down. BTW, if the roster is what you wrote down and we only have $300,000 for improvement or call-ups, this team is done before Christmas....

The context is what HOLLAND will do, not what you'd do... do you even follow the Wings and the way they operate? Your "proposal" offered too many roster changes and the "Rafalski waive the NTC and trade Hudler" comments took it out of context right there alone... the numbers are just estimates, and this wasn't a "contract value" thread either... there's likely no way that either Miller OR Eaves are sent packing, let alone both of them...

I expect to see the exact same team as this year, plus Hudler, Ritola, and Kindl, minus Maltby, Lebda, and Meech. Except that everyone will now be one year older <_<

Pretty much.

I expect to see Lidstrom for another season, or 2, but I'm not expecting any new UFA's to be signed.

Even though Holland said he will actively seek a 4th line winger in the Dallas Drake mold who is tough to play against? This makes me, at the very least, "expect" that he'll sign one UFA. But I won't be surprised if it doesn't work out.
