Just got a text from the official Wings text thingy that says Miller has re-upped for next year! Good news!
It is not a sprint, yet a marathon.

I'm intrigued to hear his salary. It'll bring some clarity to what Eaves will likely get.

I'm guessing no more than $750,000.

Sounds like it was a single year deal. No idea on the amount yet, obviously.

I am of the belief that anyone who hates Miller and wants him off the team has no concept of the defensive style of play in which he excells. His arrival coincided with the PK unit turning it around and saving our season.

Honestly I hope he takes another step forward in Camp and secures a spot, because I believe he brings alot to the team, even if goal scoring is not something he brings.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

Hmm only a one year deal? I wonder if all of the RFA's will only get one year. I heard that to be the case for Helm and Abby. Unless it has something to do with the amount of cap available at the end of this upcoming season.
Mixed feelings about this

Maybe Modano isn't an option anymore.

At any rate, I don't see why anyone here would hate Miller. I can't recall a single time he didn't something stupid, or was lazy, or had a bad game. The kid gave his all every night and was never, ever a liability.

The only reason I can see people wanting Miller gone is because he technically does what Eaves does and we might need an extra roster space. But I fail to see how re-signing Miller is in any way, shape or form a bad thing.

It seems clear to me that Holland wants to have a lot of compettion at camp this year, with the addition of Filpulla the second, Ritola, and maybe Modano, It means that Eaves, Miller, Ritola- they don't have a roster spot in the bag.

Odds are someone is getting picked up on waivers by somebody.

The deals for Helm and Abby probably wont get done to soon. Holland was saying this the other day. Those are presumably longer term deals.

Sign and trade unless theyve given up on Modano.There is simply too many forwards on this team.

For those talking about Modano, this signing should have absolutely zero barring on whether or not Mike signs with Detroit.
