It's at least a million per year too much for him right now...
Over four years, I still think it's an overpayment. Maybe not as much tho.


He's not exactly a spring chicken, He'll be 32 at the start of the season ...

I'll die if we sign White. His defensive skills make Lebda look like a superstar.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

You have got to be joking. The year is 2011, there is a $64.3M cap, and the dearth of available free agents has produced an enormous seller's market.

Montador had the highest +/- on the Sabres in 2010-11, is a cumulative +39 since the lockout (playing on mediocre teams at best) , and has scored 20+ points each of the last 4 seasons. If you like advanced stats he led all defensemen on the Sabres in GVT, GVT/game, and was 2nd in point share. His corsi numbers were almost identical to Bieksa's in 2011.

To suggest that he is overpaid by "at least a million" is patently absurd given Montador's performance and current market conditions.

Eklund Hockey Buzz Eklund
not major new, but it sounds like the WIngs may be getting Patrick Eaves back in the fold. he is a player I always have followed and enjoy.

It's Eklund, but I hope he's right!

Wings making progress with Ericsson and Eaves

Holland said of Ericsson, “Gone back and forth with his agent, made progress. We'll talk again either later tonight or in the morning. We'd like to sign him, he'd like to stay.''

Holland said of Eaves, “Talked with his agent, think we're making progress.''

i'm now almost sure kenny will make a trade to bolster our d.... sure, it means an overpayment in assets most likely. but at least its not an overpayment in Cap on the FA market as the guy would have an existing contract. If he wants a guy at a reasonable cap hit with youth, it'll most likely involve a trade now that all the UFAs have been picked over. he won't offer sheet anyone following his history. it seems like a trade or we go into next season looking real shaky at the back.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

How long does Montador last in Chicago before they either bury him in the minors or trade him?


This just in, Montador traded to Florida for a 9th round pick in 2020.

Wiz is soon to be a $7m dollar defenseman :)

That is a ridiculous price for Ericsson if true.
Red Kelly #4 and Larry Aurie #6 belong in the rafters!!!

He was miserable in the sharks/wings series. Literally turning away from shots to avoid getting hit by the puck. One game in particular he was on the ice for all four wings goals.

RT @bradyfan590: Red Wings are eagerly trying to move Hudler & offered him to loads of teams at the Draft. Be shocked if he's back.
