Ok... according to capgeek.com, the Wings have a little more than $16 million to play with right now, and we don't exactly know for sure who the D man Kenny is going to sign will be. Lets say just for argument sake that Stamkos and the Lightning are unable to come to an agreement, and he is sitting out there for the taking come July 1. Would he be worth the $10-11 million a year plus the draft picks it would take to bring him to the D?

The roster capgeek.com has for us right now is minus Jonathan Ericsson too.. but i don't think he will make any more than $1 million.

K, I tried it for a minute, and I didn't really see it working out.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

Less than 9.... Nobody goes over 10.....

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

for what its worth... Eklund is saying he will get between $10-11 million from the Bolts... I wasn't really saying this was something I saw working... just throwing the idea out there. How cool would it be though....

First of all Ericsson will sign for 2-2.25 mill, not 1 mill. Secondly, We still have to sign Eaves, Miller, and a back up goalie. Lastly, We need to sign at least one top 4 defensemen. Where is this 10 mill coming from? NEVER GONNA HAPPEN

Ericsson at 2-2.25 mil? We have some problems on our hands. Stamkos will never wear the Winged Wheel, can we get these fantasies out of our minds? I heard Dan Bylsma tweeted he was giving Sid and Malkin away to Detroit for 3 mil/yr each! Message me when we're done with this dream.

Well assuming that ericsson already turned down a 2 million dollar deal i'm assuming that Ericsson agent is either negotiating slighty more or more years. Thus, I assume it will be slightly more than 2 mill.

This isn't pro wrestling. :D

Yzerman isn't going to lay down for Holland in some wonderful conspiracy like fashion.

Why would he trade the future of his franchise after they just had a magical season and were within a game of the Finals?

Defense is the most glaring need this team has at the moment, so I highly doubt Kenny would be willing to forsake that need on the off chance of signing Stamkos.

The roster capgeek.com has for us right now is minus Jonathan Ericsson too.. but i don't think he will make any more than $1 million.


Big E was making $1.25 this most recent season (cap hit of $900k, as it was a staggered salary). So he's now expected to sign for less than last year? All the news reports are saying that E's new deal will be around/above $2 mil per year.

Exactly, if Holland was going to throw $10M at one player he wants, he would throw it at Weber...

Which can't happen, meaning he's gotta throw his money elsewhere.

I wonder, what's with this artificial cap that no one can be paid more than Lidstrom/Datsyuk? I understand the sentimentality, but how is it smart to limit yourself to a contract signed years ago that was a steal?

lids was signed this year.... and ya, the cap went up, so what? so we start tossing around contracts 5mill more than before for 1 player? you have to consider that EVERYONE's stock rises in this case. you will have to resign lesser players at a higher price so you can't throw all that extra cap at one player without losing guys.

EDIT: look at bieksas contract for example.
