Draper was making over a mil last year and was in the pressbox quite a bit. Hudler and Ericsson were healthy scratches last year and were making well over a $1 mil. Commodore is an injury prone, -17 defenseman over the past couple years and was waived by the friggin Blue Jackets. He'll be adequate stepping in as a number 6 defenseman in the event of an injury, but I don't feel like Commodore is a solution to our defensive problems. "Getting used to" Commodore being a 6th defenseman is like saying "get used to getting knocked out of the second round again". Better options are available and unless these defenseman want too much, there's no reason not to go with one of them.

I agree, but I was reffering to the current d-corps. If it stays the same, I don't see Commie being #7 and Kindl #6. But, by all means, if there is a trade in the works for a defender that will be #3-#4, then sure I can see Commie being #7. But as it stands, Commie is #6 over Kindl...

however....Draper is done, that is why he rode the press box a lot last year and he was signed a few years ago, you know my opinion on Hudler and Ericsson was atrocious last season. Commie will be better than Ericsson this year, bet on it. Commie was signed this year to play a specific role, and I don't see that being the #7 or he would've been offered a lot less than $1M. Janik could come in a be #7 for less money. If Commie was signed to be #7, then it makes no sense what-so-ever when Holland already had a few #7 defensemen already signed.

Hudler, Kindl, and a 1st Round Pick for Weber!

Sign Weber for $6.2M

Then trade Emmerton and a 2nd for Wheeler's rights!

Get 'r done Kenny!

Didn't Shea Weber announce post elimination that his heart stands in Nashville and he was looking for a long-term deal with the franchise during the offseason?




shea weber said this:

It's going to get done," Weber said, according to The [Nashville] Tennessean. "Obviously, this is a place I love to play, and you saw how close we were this year to getting to the conference finals, and possibly further. This is a place I want to be, and it's going to be a matter of time before something gets done."

Is this enough to stop Wings fans from making "Let's get Weber!" comments?

Nope. They'll keep saying it till he's signed somewhere.

I'm all for getting Weber, just don't think it'll happen.

Would be very interested and curious to see if such a thing would happen, as I assume they still have a good bit of cap space room to make something happen if they wanted, but I'm not holding my breath.

I think the defense is all but set. We all know what Lidstrom and Stuart and Krownall will bring, hopefully Ericsson will play a bit more aggressive/inspired with a new big contract (regardless of whether you think he is overpaid or not, that's not the point of this and I really don't want to go into that saga), Ian White was a good signing, and hopefully Commodore can fill one of the 5th/6th slots effectively.

On paper, looks fairly solid.

I think the D is set.

With $7 million in cap space, and $28 available for next year, I'm expecting a big deal at the deadline.

He's just jesting.

Nobody actually "wants" to play in Nashville.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

So all we need to do is send Ferraro, McCollum and a third round pick for Semin and Vokoun and we're set.

Nah, could've had Vokoun for $1.5M, he just didn't want to be #2 behind Howard, he wants to start, so he went to Washington...

I'd take Semin for sure, and I would sacrifice a prospect and a roster player...
