great pickup by Stevie in TB - Garon is a very solid backup and at a good price tag too... definitely wouldn't have minded him here...

"We need another defenseman, so we'll explore the market," general manager Ken Holland said. "If there's a player there, at a number we feel good about, we're going to try to jump in. If they're only above-average players, in our mind, then we'll look at going a different way."

There's a good chance they may not sign anyone today.

WHAT OTHER ******* WAY COULD YOU GO?!?!?!?!?

Are you going to conjure one out of thin air? Beg Raf to come back? Sign someone out of a moosejaw beer league?

Edit: pardon the language, but damn it...

Same article

"I thought Rusty Salei did a nice job for us last year," Holland said. "I told his agent that we're not going to sign him prior to July 1. But maybe the way to go is to try to get ourselves a couple of pros, maybe Rusty is one of them. We're going to explore."

The Wings secured the services of Jonathan Ericsson with a three-year extension Thursday, and he's slated to be the No. 5 guy. They also have Jakub Kindl under contract and are prepared to give Brendan Smith, their 2007 first-round pick, a chance to make the team.

"We've got some young kids that could be as good as some of the players on the market down the road," Holland said. "So that's what we have to debate a little bit, is opportunity vs. direction."

If they're not gonna sign a defensemen and just stick with the kids. They better go all out and get a top 6 forward and boost the offense. Because they're gonna have to score alot of goals to win games if the defense is as lackluster as it was last season.

I don't mind going with the kids, but if you are, we have to get better in some other way. Richards NEEDS to be signed IMO. So we can trade Fil and Hudler later for something.

Babchuk still available. Steal him, Kenny!

You know it is bad when someone described as incredibly inconsistent is a steal.

Blackhawks really hate having cap space, unlike Holland. Not saying that is a good thing though... or a bad thing... just making a statement.

They are signing people left and right.

Richards wants a long term deal. It would be sweet if Holland offered him a Hossa deal for one season.

Relax people, Holland isnt going to sit on his ass with 10 million to spend. Expect a Dman and top 6 forward before its all over. With 14 forwards already signed you know that means there will be a trade to add that top 6 forward to the roster. Patience please!

I'm telling you guys he is gonna sign Jovonovski. I wouldn't mind Kaberle though. Our offense is built around our defensemen with quality slap shots so it would be beneficial to get an offensive defenseman.
