No chance it's 3.25. And if it is, wow you f***ed up big time Kenny. Kronner and Stewie are worth 5mil+ if Ericsson is worth that.

If Holland really did re-sign him for that much I will take it as a sign of panic on his part.

I'm thinking it might be four years at that figure. Would make much more sense.

Yes it would, but 4 more years of Ericsson...Meh.

Even at 3.25 a year, inflatted now won't be as bad with cap raises.

Also, who would we fill the spot with better?

Everyone who had to trade away rights couldn't sign their guy for this much.

E will be good at 5th and hopefully move up, wtg Kenny, now you can focus on tomorrow.

I did a quadruple take the first time I read it.

This can't possibly be right. I know he's a Wings guy, but if we're going to overpay, overpay for someone who has done something. At some point we need to realize that we can spend a little money on FA's who aren't 36+ and/or lifetime Wing's players.

Youve gotta be kidding me. Holland sits on his hands all offseason than signs the 6 foot 3 pylon to a deal like that? Are you kidding me? The wings were ganna be a better team letting him walk, and thats what we all thought was ganna happen, than we sign him for a ridiculous cap hit? Man ket the kid walk and see he cant get anything on the market outside of Toronto. If this is an accurate cap hit than Holland needs to quit drinking and soon...

This by far the worst and most stupid thing Holland has EVER done.

Even more ridiculous than trading for Cory Cross.

A truly bizarre signing, I cannot believe this is actually happening.

3.25 million a year is absolutely ridiculous for a 5th or 6th defenseman... i do not understand this one.. sign and trade? follow in san joses steps?

I can see Holland now, "We'd have to over-pay free agents so we just re-signed this bum"

f***!

i wanted ericsson to be resigned, I think he still has unreached potential, but not at that price!

Meanwhile, Brian Burke is wringing his hands because he was going to offer $4.5M/yr.

This stuffs up future negotiating deals with these two, for sure.

Can you imagine what they're going to command given what Jonathan FREAKING Ericsson just got? Crazy, good one Kenny.
