I don't know why all the other threads got moved, just for a new one to be created and then pinned... they all have basically the same source and the same content... couldn't this all have been condensed into one thread?

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this one as well

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

Pretty disappointing if it's that high IMO. But obviously he's worth anything he's paid.

Patience is a virtue. 3 new threads containing the same "rumor" have popped up in the last 3 hours and I was hoping for confirmation aside from the AP source to come up quicker than it did. Hence, the re-title of the thread. Had I moved it, another 3-4 members who just woke up and checked TSN, ESPN, MLive, etc. would've came on and started the exact same thread.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

Why are people disappointed at 6 million...that is 1.5 million dollar pay cut for a guy that is still one of the best defenseman in the NHL...

I said people putting him at 5 mill were going too low all season in the "Projected Cap Hits"

Happy to have him back.

It's disappointing because of the huge pay cut Yzerman took his last year playing, it should have been something similar (unless he does play one more year and does it then).

Yzerman was not a top 10 player in the league his last (or even last 2) years in the league... nor was he playing top minutes - not the same
