Miller signed. 825k a year.

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.

Welcome back! It's MILLER TIME!

I don't like this. Unless we are trading Hudler, this seriously puts a dent in us attempting to get a top 6 guy.

Miller is a good player, but he is extremely replaceable and I would rather Mursak or Emmerton take over that role. He had better not be a permanent fixture in the lineup, unless we shake up some other players and make some moves.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Huds go in a deal for a D man.

And with that, I think we might be able to officially welcome Drapes into a front office position. Regardless, a solid signing.

Unnecessary deal, how about moving forward Kenny?

So it's goodbye Emmerton, and reduced playing time for Mursak. Super awesomeness.

2 years too? Good grief.

This will really disappoint the manchildren that need something bright and shiny every offseason.

So long Drapes, and thanks for all the fish.

Bienvenido Miller, please enjoy the rest of your stay.

Too many bodies that do the same thing. Eaves, Miller, Mursak, Helm, Abdelkader, Filppula... These guys all play a strong defensive game, but their offense is limited and Abs is really the only physical one of the bunch.

We need to make some moves to shake things up. Holland said they are planning on changing things up, but so far it seems like a lot of the same... Not a good formula for winning, seeing as the "same" got knocked out of the playoffs by the same team the past two seasons.

Miller was on many under the radar FA lists. He is a great PK player and hasn't done anything but good in a Red sweater.

This must mean Draper is done playing for the Wings. Not complaining. I'm a big Draper fan, but it was time.

As for Miller, I'm sort of neutral on this one. I don't know enough about the kids in Grand Rapids to have a feel for if they're ready to step up.

The key here is Mursak. Mursak needs to be higher in the depth chart than Miller, plan and simple. If he's not, than I'm pissed. This kid is Helm with hands... seriously, do I need to say more?!?
