Brooks Laich will get serious over payment this offseason. Holland doesn't chase players to overpay them. You seriously want to trade Stuart if Ericsson re-signs for almost $1.5 million less than Stuart, because you think Ericsson should play like a $4 million dollar defensemen? I fail to see your logic.

You say Wings' defense has underachieved while still being in the middle of the pack, despite have sophomore goalie woes, injury plagued season, and a third string backup goalie. This team, as is, is a serious cup contender. I think it'd be in Holland's best interest to save cap space and get in on the trade deadline frenzy. Trade deadline is when the best deals are had in the salary cap world. Save the cap space and improve the team later if needed.

Holland's weakness has been spending to cap every year. Two words: Trade.Deadline

Rentals are so pre-cap

WHat's the story with Blake WHeeler? I haven't seen him play, only the highlight goals.

He's got great size and suppossedly great hands, why doesn't his name come up at all? WHat's his story?

His problem is between his ears.

Leaf fans also hated Murphy, and he worked out just fine in Detroit ;)

As for Kaberle he's a better player than most think - although I gotta admit he hasn't been too impressive so far in a Bruins sweater...He's a player I could see Holland possibly target if Lidstrom were to retire.

I dont know if you've watched him or not so I'm not passing judgment on you. But I've watched him for years as I live in TOronto and the guy is god awful defensively. He is so weak on the puck and he gets pushed around all day long. It's pathetic.

Canucks might try and trade Ballard in an attempt to keep both Erhoff and Bieksa.

NMC I believe, or at a minimum NTC

I wouln't mind Michael Ryder. He's got a good scoring touch and also plays with a little bit of a physical edge. Boston's played him on each of the Top 3 lines over the past few years, and he also has had limited experience on the penalty kill. He can be a great depth player here.

Did Pittsburgh hate Murph, too? Because Kaberle isn't exactly racking up love points where he plays. Honestly, we're screwed if we're hoping Kaberle can fill in for Lidstrom.
