RFA/UFA Signings

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

How much would it take to trade for Green he is practically another rafalski.... Give or take one way or the other. Filppula, Tatar?, picks? (I dont think aboit predicting trades much but i know you have to give to get some im assuming a first round pick) And then sign richards for 2nd line center... Sorry I'm just reaching for straws here. Hoping something happens besides in house signings...

NO NO NO!!!

He is not another Raf, he sucks defensively. The guy is always out of position, doesn't put the effort in on d that he does on o. DO NOT WANT!

Yeah because it is a good idea to do all of your deals/moves in the media, that way all of your fans know you are at least doing something. Instead of negotiating on the phone with WPG for Bogosian (it is a potential deal) Holland should do it through LGW or the Freep, that way his fan base knows what he is doing.

Free agency has been going on for 3 hours, very few major trades have happened yet.

I am not saying Holland lands anymore players or makes any moves, what I am saying is; it is 3 hours after all of this started and people on here are tweaking!

What if by the end of the day Holland trades for Bogo, giving Huds, Flip, and Emmerton (or Kindl or Smith) freeing up the room to sign Richards?

Will all of you come back on here and say you overreacted? NO, no one ever does.

July 1st and the trade deadline are the biggest Holland headhunting days of the year on here.

I don't panic often, but this day has made me extremely frustrated. We spent the first half of the day re-signing mediocre fourth liners when there could have been significant improvements made there over the existing (Miller) players (Hudler) we have.

EVERYBODY who has watched a hockey game knows the needs the Wings have. Top end defenceman, improvement on second line and a backup goalie, in that order. Who's left out there?

Do you see the roster as it is making a good run in the playoffs? I sure as hell don't. And if they do lose in the playoffs, will you finally admit Holland missed the boat on making an improvement to a team that's lost in the WC semis for the past two years?

Looking at commodore's stats, why did he only play 20 games last year? Injuries? He's only played 70+ games 3 seasons in the last decade. That's the only thing that worries me. He's obviously Salei's replacement.

1 year, 1 mil for Commodore. Must have taken all morning to work that one out.

Not great but not the worst signing possible. The other shoe has to drop on a top-end defenceman. The Wings have known they've needed one for a month.

1 yr 1 mil for Commodore does not excite me, but it is only one year so no real negative to it, he is better than Salei, imo, so this is an OK deal.

Neither bad nor great move, but helps the D a little, Commodore is a sold vet.

Oh wait here is the negative:

For a million, I like it. We still have lots of money, and are trying to trade Hudler. Keep it going Kenny, bring in another d-man.

But who??? I would like a name, one guy we could trade for that wouldn't cost us everything...

Right now I think the only satisfaction would be Ken making a blockbuster where he moves Fil, Hudler, Sheahan, Ferro, and firsts plural for Weber's rights then signing Richards.

That is the only way I think I will say today was a cup winning type of day.

Also hearing the Wings offered a multi-year $2M+ contract to Ville Lieno.

Id be so happy! to give him up for nothing because he didnt work in our system just to bring him back...god kenny is such a genius lol

He got sent to the minors for a sucky attitude and he wasn't worth the big $$$ Columbus gave him a couple of years ago. He got bought out (a la Superstar Patty Eaves)

RT @BrianHedger: To refresh, Commodore on Babcock trading him in 2003: "Mike Babcock was without a doubt an obstacle in my career."

EDIT: For one year at a million, though, it's worth a gamble.

It might have to be through a trade, I'd still like Ian White. But the pickings are slim.

One thing, I remember several years ago bringing up Commodore only to be shot down because Babs had a tiff with him.

I remember being lambasted for that, should I try and find that thread so crow can be eaten?

No, I am too lazy. :hehe:

It might have to be through a trade, I'd still like Ian White. But the pickings are slim.

I'd take Ian White, but honestly I think that it just makes a log jam at D. You start to risk Smith with a signing like that. A trade would be unavoidable in the future unless we don't do anything in UFA next year.

Still I would rather make that move than not.

Sullivan was a great signing for Pit.

So you are admitting only the impossible would give you satisfaction???

The Wings trade Hudler, Flip and a top level prospect to WPG for Bogo, possibility.

Maybe the Wings see if Nas is interested in getting rid of Suter (doubt it whole same division thing).

Matt Carle looks to be expendable.

What about Wideman?

First you want a blockbuster but then Ian White is ok with you?
