Forward Jason Williams and defenseman Brett Lebda won't be re-signed.

A dream has been realized.

Great cap hit for Homer. Kenny hasn't lost his touch.

Here's what I came up with using Cap Geek...
AUTO-GENERATED CAPGEEK.COM LINES
FORWARDS
Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Johan Franzen ($3.955m)
Valtteri Filppula ($3.000m) / Jiri Hudler ($2.875m) / Daniel Cleary ($2.800m)
* Tomas Holmstrom ($1.875m) / Kris Draper ($1.583m) / * Justin Abdelkader ($0.850m)
* Darren Helm ($0.750m) / * Drew Miller ($0.750m) / * Patrick Eaves ($0.750m)
Mattias Ritola ($0.517m)
DEFENSEMEN
Nicklas Lidstrom ($6.200m) / Brian Rafalski ($6.000m)
Brad Stuart ($3.750m) / Niklas Kronwall ($3.000m)
* Andreas Lilja ($1.000m) / Jonathan Ericsson ($0.900m)
Jakub Kindl ($0.883m)
GOALTENDERS
Chris Osgood ($1.417m) / Jimmy Howard ($0.717m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS
(these totals are compiled using the bonus cushion)
ROSTER: 22; CAP: $58.8m; PAYROLL: $56.355m; CAP ROOM: $2.445m BONUSES: $0.000m

That's the most realistic thing I foresee. Helm, Miller and Eaves should make something in the ballpark of $750,000 each. Abdelkader doesn't deserve a raise-- $850,000 is right for what he provides and his age/experience.

Note that Bertuzzi isn't there.

If you add another forward (Bertuzzi) you have to drop a forward-- there's no reason to carry 14 forwards when half of them are interchangeable parts.

To be honest, I wish Abdelkader had another year of AHL eligibility to fall back on... I thought he did but I think his being an RFA changes that.

Agreed. Great deal!

Especially if he puts up similar numbers to this year.

Great deal, welcome back Homer!
But my most coveted thing is a high self-esteem
And a low tolerance for them telling me how to lean
See the most important parts are the ones that are unseen
The Wings don't make you fly and the Crown don't make you king
Now God don't like ugly, ain't too happy bout pretty
I am ignorance's enemy so stay out of the vicinity of...

That's a solid deal for Homer's services! Great signing Kenny!

Now if Kenny can somehow swing locking up Bertuzzi to a similar type deal, I'll be quite thrilled.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

Solid deal, I was hoping for somewhere just a bit under 2 million. Hopefully his body can hold out for 2 more years and we have a great deal on our hands.


Even if Homer's skating does slow down it doesnt really matter because he'll still be able to tip pucks all the same on the PP

Just an FYI: Abdelkader is required to make atleast $892,5000 next season according to the RFA re-sign policy laid out in the CBA.

Really dont understand why people are fixated on signing that ***** Tanguay, aside from being an ex-Avs ******, he made $2.5 million last season and put up 37 points. What a bargain? :rolleyes:

Just because of that reason he will be able to get signed below 2M, especially if he prefers to go to detroit... If he gets to play with datsyuk or zetterberg he could put up 70-80pts again..Way too much skill n upside to be overlooked, as i said before, there's also a reason he went 12overall and is a stanley cup champ

Good length and good cap hit, anyone else thinking this may be his last contract ever?



I would guess that another two years standing in front of opposing NHL goalies will be all his poor body can handle.
The Vladinator He earned the NHL Plus/Minus Award in 1995-96, with a plus/minus difference of plus-60. The +60 has been the highest rating a player has finished with in the past 20 seasons, since Wayne Gretzky finished with a +70 in the 1986-87 NHL season

Pavel Datsyuk > x (where x is the name of any active hockey player)

BS...why wouldn't Lilja be in our estimations. The guy is beyond solid as a bottom pairing D-man, which is where he belongs and he's a beast on the PK. There's a reason Babs sticks him out there with Lidstrom on the first PK pairing. Not to mention the fact that the bottom pairing would truly benefit from a stay-at-home veteran presence for a modest salary. Lilja's perfect for that and he'd continue to alleviate the growing pains of both E and Kindl.

If he can be had for a similar contract the Wings' defense will be solid top to bottom! If not, prepare for a lot of bottom pairing rookie mistakes this coming season.

Hopefully this contract is used as a measuring stick for Bert, should Holland carry on with his plans to sign him.
