It's like 80's Edmonton all over again. Defense be damned, we'll just score more goals, and hope "Grant Howard" bails us out with a few saves on all the breakaways we give up.




I do actually like the idea of going after Richards. Our offense sure wouldn't suffer from him being here. Maybe go the "affordable" route with defense, maybe Jovo, Montador, and Big Rig. And then go into the season with the idea of making a trade before the deadline for a higher end guy, or someone we would like, long term. Then next summer, try to land the big fish that we will most likely need.


Sutter 2012. You heard it first here.

Montador's rights were traded to Chicago for a 7th. I think Chicago signs him.

He said that he hasn't had a 'taste' of the cup for too long, and that it's 'been too long since I've won the Stanley Cup'. So yeah, his main focus is winning the cup again, regardless of whether or not he's won it before. Plus he recently said that he wants to go to a big hockey market because he didn't like walking into the empty seats in Dallas and Tampa. I think Detroit would be a perfect fit for him.


There are numerous contenders with lots of cap space, and I guarantee you that many of them will not be expecting him to take any discount.

If you mean here as in LGW, then yes, I've heard it for like 2 years now. And I fully support that move.

I read that after I posted. I really hope he doesn't sign, but Chicago definitely needs the help on D. That HJallmarsooonnnnn that they were forced to overpay last summer, really crapped the bed for them this year. I really think that they need a puck mover more than a defensive minded player, that's why I don't quite understand their interest in Monty. But I guess they need some help in their own end too, and Stan got scared so he gave away a pick for 36 hours of negotiations. Go Core.

Good God that's a terrible defense. Stack that up against the teams the Wings would face in the playoffs and they get eaten alive. I never paid attention to Montador, but Jovo isn't going to help this team at all. They really need to get a top end defenseman (not someone like Weber obviously) but not just a spot-filler. Defense was weak last year and it got worse with Rafalski leaving. Yeah, McCrimmon was a big part of that, but we can't count on a new coach improving things without trying to get the best possible defenseman to fill Rafalski's spot.

Sources: Sabres have reached a contract with Christian Ehrhoff

Well, I don't know how reliable this is.

It's likely reliable. Expect Eklund to rip it off as his own within the next hour.

Buffalo are going to be a team on the rise next season, I don't believe Richards will sign there though. Maybe add Drury and another winger and that'll be it for them.

My guess it will be $6 - $6.5 per. Buf are aggressive because they are going all-in for a cup. I don't think that's a wise decision at their current state.

This is the lamest system ever. If I was in on the CBA I would stop this trading rights bs.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

McKenzie is pretty solid with his tweets. He takes it seriously. He doesn't like to spout off just to spout off.

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.

Christian Ehrhoff deal essentially done, hearing around a 5.3M cap hit, multi year deal.

Good Deal for Buffalo if true

Whoever Detroit signs, it needs to be a short-term contract. Wis is ok, but don't lock him up for 4+ years.
