Wings re-sign Ericsson to 3-year, $9.75m contract

Rate this topic

Like I said, a NMC or NTC makes this a horrible deal, with one it might just be a bad deal.

Whatever, I am going to bed. Maybe the bad dream will end and we can start making the league scratch their heads by making a deft move, not a dumb one.

lol a NTC/NMC would sink this. my only shred of hope is that he plans on dealing him this offseason and has a plan set up already with a team.... someone mentioned that some lesser teams need to reach the cap floor and this would help.... but still thats not likely at all.

My biggest question is:

Did he consult Babcock prior to signing this vomit-inducing contract? I mean, Babcock has benched Ericsson repeatedly over the years, I can't imagine him being too thrilled about this....perhaps even "pissed off".

I really gotta think Detroit just gave him that amount for another team. This isn't what Holland does. I pray we see him going to a team that needs to build up the cap.

This has to be a 'sign and trade'.................

please

I think everyone just wants you to admit that Holland failed big time today.

You can't excuse it based on his great track record.

I think it's an awful signing. I don't even want Ericsson on the team. But I also think that it's a small signing. He didn't throw away a huge amount of money. Ericsson got maybe $1.5m more than he should have gotten.

With so many holes to fill on this team, I simply can't fathom how you can view this as a "small" signing.

Burke is probably the only one out there who would touch this contract with a 10 foot pole and a HASMAT suit; other than that, we're screwed.

Please, Big E, please prove us all wrong.

maybe 1.5 more? Are you ******* kidding me? 1.5 million would have bought us a better defenseman then that useless piece of s*** we call big rig. This maybe one of the worst moves the wings have done since the lockout.

Well, we started with hoping Rig would just go away. Dream crushed.

Then, we moved on to hoping the numbers were wrong. Dream crushed.

Now, we're left clinging to a thread that there's a sign-n-trade in works. We're desperate, we is.

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the lord my sanity to keep, if Rig's still a Wing when I awake, I pray some sucker team this contract will take. A-frickin-men.

Maybe Ericsson used Eva Unit Zero stats logic on Holland to prove he's worth $3.25m. I'm sure it's possible to find one piece of stats from an obscure date to prove it.

Just wait and see what the other UFA's defencemen get, and this will look like a good deal. I guarantee they'll all make more than Ericsson, and for a longer term. They'll start at 4 Million a year minimum and for 5 years minimum.

Give it a couple weeks, and it'll look ok.

Edit: Remember what Jeff Finger got a few years ago? It'll be the same thing with these guys. With that in mind, I'll take Ericsson at 3 years.

Hopefully Holland works real hard and tries to sign Jason williams again. I am no joke pissed off about this, Holland has made deals I didn't like but they were at least somewhat with in the range of value. This is ******* pathetic and it seems like his ******* ego has gotten the best of him. Cut the ******* cord for once!

the common arguement is, He played 20 min per game blah blah blah, to bad they were against a bunch of scrubs and he still stood out to be a big useless ***** piece of s***

I come here to see if there is any Jagr updates, and this is the stupid s*** I have to read about???

I wasn't even against E coming back, but I thought we were talking like $2mil.

WTF Kenny?

I have not been so annoyed by anything (non-political) that I've read in a very long time...

I need a drink...

Right. So many holes. You mean Rafalski, Salei and Modano, I imagine.

Is there any point at which you're not blowing things vastly out of proportion?
