Delightful. Small sum to pay for his services.

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.

Good price, but god damnit unless were trading Hudler we got too many bodies upfront.

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?!?

I don't know what to say. That's a good price etc. but do we really need him? Mursak should be ahead of him.

I think it's been obvious for awhile that Emmerton isn't really in Detroit's plans.

Aassuming Draper and Modano are gone, that means there are 14 forwards left. I could see Hudler and Emmerton being moved in some sort of trade.

This probably unofficially closes the door on Draper, but I'm okay with Miller. Especially at that price tag.

Hard to argue with that price, but Miller is sooo redundant on this team. I have nothing against him, but we already have so many guys who can do what he does.

If Mursak outplays Miller, then Miller will be the one in the press box. Even so, .825 is nice depth. If not, then he's worth his money to play every night.

In the best scenario, the two of them compete for ice time and bring out the best in each other by upping the competition.
