Same agent as Modano? Oh that is wonderful news, come on Willie, make the right choice! This would turn from a decent off season to an awesome one. Re-signing Bert, Homer, Helm, Abby and Eaves. Then signing Modano and Mitchell? Ahhhh would be brilliant :D

And Kindl - one of our top prospects - would sit on the press box. YAYY! Talk about being shortsighted.

Exactly, and if Kindl or Ericsson end up not doing so well we can carry Janik as our 7th.

Geez, this looks like it could happen. I think what we need to know is.... does Mitchell qualify for bonuses due to games missed last year? If so, this is very doable. 1 mil salary and whatever required in bonuses.

I think with Mitchell's injury last season and spending 100days on the IR, he will be getting alot less money, I have read in a few articles people saying he will get somewhere from 1.5-2.25mill this year which isnt to bad id be alright with moving Eaves and Miller i like them both but Mitchell as our 6th D would be huge.

According to this article Mitchell does qualify for bonuses due to his 100 days on injured reserve last season : http://www.startribune.com/sports/wild/blogs/

I'm told, actually could sign a contract with performance bonuses because he spent 100 days on injured reserve last year -- including the playoffs. The CBA doesn't spell out whether the 100 days is only during the regular season, so it appears after inquiries from Mitchell and the player interested teams, the league will allow this type of contract. I bet it'll be for a base of $1 or $1.5 million on a one-year deal plus bonuses.

So this means he could accept a 1.5M contract (with bonuses)... that sounds like a reasonable price?

I would be satisfied with E and Kindl in the lineup. No Mitchell needed to take ice time away from the kids. People were mad about Modano bumping Abdelkader down to the 4th line, but are fine with Mitchell putting Kindl in the press box?

Don't worry, Kronwall will be injured for 30 games giving him some time.

And don't forget Big E going to the dog house for 10-15 so thats a good 1/2 a season he could play.

I think the argument that we shouldn't sign Mitchell because it takes away Kindl's ice time is pretty weak. Kindl would get plenty of ice time as the # 7 defenseman. In 08/09 Meech and Chelios were the 7th and 8th defensemen and they played in a combined 69 games. Last year we had 7 defensemen who played in at least 48 games. Plus, signing Mitchell might put us in a position where we have enough quality defensemen that we could occasionally rest either Lidstrom or Rafalski on the second night of a back to back. Also, even if we don't sign Mitchell, Kindl could end up being the 7th defenseman anyway behind Janik or a lesser free agent signing.

I'm gonna go ahead and call that.... splendid.

What the problem is? Holland can sign him to 1 mil base and another 1.5 in bonuses.

500k for 40 games,

500k for 60 games,

and another 500k for beating the piss outta Malkin.

Trade / waive Meech and Ritola and you're done.

What an offseason that would be. We'll have 2 mil possibly being deffered to next year, but I'm plenty good with that. Take advantage of Lids while he's still here. Go for it.

edit... oh, have abs at 800, might be 900
