I don't hate the guy and I certainly don't think I'll be booing him. He's hoped around between so many different teams that this season he was looking for a long fat contract. I thought it was well known he was looking for a big pay day this off season and was all about the money. Like somebody said, hes just pissed he couldn't take Kenny for a ride lol. Anyhow, he landed his big money at a central rival so he prolly thought hed talk some smack. I know for a fact he was very interested in the wings for a while. He just wanted too much and he wasn't gonna get here. Oh well.

If he runs his mouth more, or hits dats bad or something ill change my tune, but other than that i say goodluck to him in Columbus....he'll need it lol

The next time the NHL has to go through a lockout and the players bring up the argument that "it's not our fault the owners choose to pay us so much money" I wonder if the owners will retort that the silly salaries being given to second-tier defensemen were supposedly "market value."

As for the comment made by Wiz - meh - so he's a little snarky...Probably wanted to be a Red Wing, but realised Holland wouldn't ante up what he would want so he just went ahead, and took the $$$, and ice time the BJ's had promised.

No big loss.

He's probably right if the cap continues to increase. Besides, did he not hear what Ericsson got?


Look at what everyone got this week. Ehrhoff, the playoff's worst +/- (-13), is going to make more money next season than Crosby.

Leino, Laich and Fleischmann are signed to a cap hit of 4.5 million over the next 4-6 years. :scared:

Jovocop had 14pts in 50 games last season... He's 35 years old and the Panthers signed him to a 4 year contract with a 4.125 million cap hit.

Brewer was very solid for the Lightning in the playoffs he actually had a significant drop in offensive production after they got him from St. Louis (2pts in his 22 games with TB compared to 14 in 54 games in St. Louis). But did he deserve 3.85 million a season for 4 years? While I'd rather have Brewer on the Wings for that price, Ericsson's numbers are virtually identical to Brewer's but E's 5 years younger and trending upwards. Brewer's numbers have declined since his peak season in 06-07. Like I said-- if we're talking about next season in isolation I'd take Brewer over Ericsson. But Brewer will be 36 when his deal ends and Ericsson will be 30. I doubt at that point E will be the worse choice. Ericsson will have to get better to justify his contract by growing as a player. However, we can safely assume he's got a better shot to grow at this point than Brewer does (who's 32, declining and has 12 NHL seasons under his belt).

When word filtered out that E's contract was worth 3.25 million it felt like a punch in the gut. Now that I've looked at the signings that went down so far I don't feel quite as bad. Frigging Barker was waived by Minny and bought out after posting 5pts and a -10 in 52 games last year but he got 2.25 million from Edmonton (yeah I know he scored 40pts once in Chicago but he's obviously not that player anymore... at least he wasn't that player in Minny!).

I mean s***... a 37 year old Hamrlik got 3.5 mil a year for 2 years with Washington. How much tread could he possibly have left on his tires?!? Is Hamrlik going to get 2:33 mins of pp time per game in Washington? He got 15 of his 34 points on Montreal's PP. He'll have to get comparable time on Washington's pp to replicate those numbers.

This year's cap increase really messed the market up (in my opinion).

As good UFA D-men get bought up and while Ericsson is over paid I would be pissed getting Commodore. I noticed your division rivals, Nashville, went backwards with dealing Sully, Ward and Goc. Look at the bright side...you don't have too worry about them taking it to you in the season series nor do you have to worry about them getting out of the 1st round this coming season.

I'm not going to get my underwear in a bundle about the comment. I heard it live on tv. My first thought though was Rafalski's contract. That was market value. I would say it wasn't the classy thing to do by saying that. I don't blame him for wanting the most money he could get on his chance for a long-term deal. He's almost gone to arbitration two years in a row and ended up with one year deals. In this market, I don't blame him for taking the term, money, and chance at ice time in Columbus.

Nashville? As long as Trotz is there, they always seem to find a way to give the Wings a lot of trouble. Some division rivals just seem to be like that no matter who's on the rosters.

One thing I always liked about Wisniewski is that he lives and dies for his team no matter where he is. the Seabrook hit is a good example. He took out one of his best friends for his team. He buys into systems, defends his teammates, and is an all around loyal guy, whether its the habs or the BJ's lol. His rights got traded to Columbus, they gave him an offer he couldn't refuse, and he hopped on the BJ's bandwagon and didn't look back, it's as simple as that. If Gionta looked at Nash the wrong way tomorrow Wizniewski would prolly lay him out. I respect that kind of team dedication. Its just to bad he'll be in Columbus...were gonna be tanglin with him alot prolly

Fair Market Value..... So Wiz gets a front end loaded deal that will pay him 7 million the first year and I think its 5.5 the next 3 or something. He is saying that is fair market????? So.... he is a better defensemen than Lidstrom???? RIIIIIIGGGHHHT! Sorry Wiz, fair market for you is what Ericsson got! There is a reason Chicago shipped you out at the trade deadline the year they won the cup and then Anaheim didn't want ya! Hmmm..... Good Luck in The nations armpit!!!

What makes this so funny, is his contract is completely bad on Columbus's part so good job Jackets paying almost as much as Duncan Keith is getting paid... hilarious.

Wiz signed with Columbus. He sure got what he calls a fair market value. Now with his new found fair market value, he can enjoy long summers on the golf course, watching the underpaid Red Wing players go through yet another extended season with a chance to win yet another cup. I already thought overpaid, but extra douchebag points for him. Might as well stir the pot and get his teammates fired up if the team he signed with is ever going to get out of the divisional basement.
