Holland had over $22m to spend this year. He has spent nearly $10m of it and the team is still worse off than it was last season. Horrible, horrible, horrible!

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.

You're a wizard Dylan!

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".

It'll be harder to move Ericsson with this salary come trade deadline.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

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.

Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

maybe 1.5 more? Are youf****** 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.
