Since the Wings like reclaimation projects..and i am gonna get laughed at for this i think, but what about cheechoo? he is a right handed shot and he can *could* put the puck in the net, I think injuries have taken thier toll on him, but he never had much support in Ottawa. Would he work on our 3rd line with maybe flip and hudler? He could probably be had for less then 1 Mil since the Sens would be on the hook for 1/2 his 3.25 mil Salary.

Not that the Wings need Another 3rd line guy, but a right handed shot would be nice, and he couldn't be worse then Williams.

Thoughts?

if he takes the league minimum give it a shot, as recent history proves that's the effort he gives on a daily basis...mimimum.

I will be honest I have not seen Cheechoo play this season so I do not know what his issue is but to fall that bad I'd pass.

I think 1 annoying noise in a building is enough. Imagine if they were on a line.... It would be like a freakin train station.

Stating a player "couldn't be worse than Williams" isn't exactly a great way to sell them. :P
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

I'd be fine with giving him an invite to camp and if he earns a job, giving him a contract then - I wouldn't want them to sign him outright, even for league minimum...

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

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

It's a ***** when you don't have one of the top passing centers in the game setting you up for sweet chances every night.

That being said, Pav is a very good passer.

If he were guaranteed to score 50 goals with Datsyuk feeding him passes, then yes.

Chances of that happening would be like Kopecky winning the Art Ross.

Regardless, it is not inconceivable for him to regain some of his offensive touch. He had a 28 goal season prior to Thornton. For a million or less I would for sure do it.

You've never really watched Cheechoo play, have you? Geeze...

Ive only heard good things about his play and attitude since being sent down to the AHL. Since he's been sent down he's been first on the ice and last off every practice session. Seems like hes trying to turn things around. So I'd be all for it, personally.

Sounds like they did all the work (invoking punishment/rehab) and he has recieved the message. If they want to get rid of him without giving him a second chance and we can get him at a LOW hit, why not. Cheechoo - guzundheit.

Cheechoo's surgery a few years back really cost him a lot of his explosiveness. Maybe he can get it back. Maybe he can't.
