I imagine this would also help keep Stuart's new price down.

Stuart gots a cap hit of 3.75 right now. With this new Kronwall deal and its impact on the imaginable standard, perhaps Stuart's contract will stay the same and/or at most a 200K increase?

I'm not jumping up and down about the contract, but I'm not thinking overpaid either. There are various reasons to think this:

- a lot of people are saying he would get $6M on the open market, but would he? Would he get that over a 7 year deal?
- he's not going to age gracefully like Lidstrom, I feel safe in saying that. He plays a lot more recless, so I'm not sure how he'll hold up over the 7 years.
- the contract takes him to 39 I think, not 38, so the long contract should reduce the otherwise larger expected cap hit
- the fact that he gets a limited NTC should also be factored into the cap hit

I believe the real wildcard with this is where the cap will go in the future. If the cap keeps going up, long term deals will look really good, obviously, but if the cap stays the same, I do think there is some risk in this deal because I do worry about his durability a bit.

He had 51 points in 08-09.


Isn't 51 over 40?

Spent a long time over the offseason debating which player to have for my new jersey. Eventually decided to go with Kronner, so I'm super happy to see that I'll be able to wear the jersey for a long time to come.

Unfortunately, I got it before he was announced as being one of the alternate captains, so no A.

I can live with this signing...who am I kidding, I have no say in it, so I have no choice! :lol: Anyhow, this is a far better deal than Ericsson's, at least Kronwall has proven his worth and since he isn't gonna get any better (hopefully not quick decline either) $4.75 is a steal. I say offer Stuart $5M and then go hard after Suter this off season! With a top 4 of Suter/Stuart/Kronwall/White, Lidstrom can finally retire and the impact won't be so bad...

If Commodore plays his role completely and Smith one year older, I am liking this lineup:

Suter - White
Kronwall - Stuart
Commodore - Ericsson
Smith

Great deal. Only a 1.75 million dollar raise, well played Kenny.

Evidently a guy buried in the AHL last year and yet to play a game this season is more valuable than a young prospect that has shown decent upside so far.

As far as Kronwall, I love this deal. Gives the Red Wings some flexibility to still pursue someone like Suter next summer too. Kronner was always one of those players you envisioned playing only with the Red Wings.

Well done, Kenny Holland.

Just wow. I can't even get that low of a hit in a video game. Kenny must have some compromising photos.

Does the game let you re-sign Kronwall mid season? Doesn't for me.

I'm pretty sure he'll be worth more than what he signed in real life.

I definitely would've rather it been 5 years, but I'm happy with the deal as the cap hit is very reasonable. :)

I feel like given the huge contracts defensemen have been getting lately this is a good deal for us. Obviously he'll slow down towards the end of the term and won't be worth that cap hit in today's numbers anymore, but seven years is a long time and if the cap keeps going up the relative value of the contract will go down. So I'm really happy about this one.
