This isn't even a good rumor, most rumors have him playing for the same team Chris Bourque just came from, Rob Neidermeier is supposed to be going to that team this year also, i believe the name is Lugano.

He was bought out because he was a $7 mil cap hit. I think at $1 mil or less, he would be worth it.

Would not mind for a cheap price, he was pretty bad for the Rangers but he played his ass off for the US olympic team, could be just a matter of the Rangers being a wrong fit

Kenny, please stay away from him, like you would the "friendly" girl at the bar with the "cold sore" on her mouth...

That is the best response I have seen in sometime!! I use to bartend in Pontiac and we would get women in there like that! Too funny!!

I, for one, would be in favor of this.

"All done? Five bucks." - Pavel Datsyuk after an interview
"Very few cities in the NHL have the history or the following of the Detroit Red Wings." - Steve Yzerman

Yes please! 1 year 1.5 million I could take it. He was injured all of last year basically. Still has it in him.

For a one year deal between $1.5-2 million he could be a steal if he's healthy. He didn't get bought out because he sucks, it was because he wasn't worth his salary especially because he wasn't healthy. Do it Kenny.

Please no - I don't care how cheap he would be. As others have said we have plenty of bottom 6 forwards and I would rather see someone young get an opportunity.

Maybe Drury has something in the tank but who knows. Modano added squat to the team last year when healthy. I would have rather seen Mursak get a chance.

Yes. I was a fan of them a few years ago, and even the Modano signing, but so far all our young guys are shaping up to be bottom 6 guys. We have a LOT of depth in this way. THe problem last year was a lack of a consistent, reliable scorer outside of Zetterberg and Datsyuk due to injuries and bad seasons by individuals. If we add any forward, it needs to be a Top 6, reliable scorer, not a declining vet who might pot a few on and off throughout the year.


I have to agree with this entirely. What happened to the MIX of wily vets and kids with potential? The speed/pace of the game is such that the +32yo guys aren't keeping up deep in the playoffs like the -32yo's are. In the cap world teams are now forced to replace guys with younger, more cap friendly players and often finding gems along the way. Not saying we start following instead of leading but idiosyncrasies of the game do change. I'm a huge fan of the Ilitch's loyalty as long as it doesn't get in the way of winning Cups.

Ken Holland kicks tires everywhere though. Almost as much as Jiri Hudler kicks puppies of Red Wings fans.

...mostly for the Sheen picture. I think Charlie would make an excellent depth signing up front for the Wings

Hmm, how much would it take to sign your dog, and is he/she injury prone?

Remember, a 1 year contract would actually be 7 in dog years & those pure breeds suffer from hip dysplasia a little too much for my liking.

Money on the Board 2014: $5 per series, $5 per sweep, $5 per Kronwalling, $10 per Marchand Kronwalling, $1 per Zetterberg game, $1 per 2013 Calder Cup roster player goal
