Let's not forget that Schultz's cap hit isn't a $3.8-million albatross the club has to safeguard against (like stating above, he may only hit $1.8-million total w/achievable bonuses), because of cap overage allowance. The Wings ran into that a couple years ago with some vets hitting performance bonuses when the team was already close to the cap:

Meanwhile, are there any links showing his play?

PS Just found few on youtube. I'm f.... impressed. Patience + accuracy makes wonders. How good is he on defense?

Edited by RusDRW, 26 June 2012 - 06:00 PM.

Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

This kid is a real deal. The skills he possesses is rediculous. My hair will turn gray by July 1st. I hope Kenny cares for the health of Red Wings fans and signs this kid first thing in the morning.

By the way it should be easy. All he needs is the Wings logo on his beautiful red and white jersey.
Go Wings !

At this time, since there is no new CBA yet, there is no bonus cushion. There may be one once a new CBA is reached, but for now we have to figure on bonuses being factored the same as any other salary, at least until they become impossible to earn.

That is even better...I just would like to have it done before he turns 35 to avoid that issue if he cannot fulfill the contract...

Two things: You can't sign a new contract until the final year of the existing contract (after July 1st of next year), and even if you could, the 35+ clause goes by the age of the player in the first year of the new contract, not the age when the contract is signed. Though the next CBA may not even have a 35+ clause anyway.

Chris Mason seems like a pretty good option to me with the Jets having Pavelec signed and Gustafsson in the mix now.

Dan Cleary is an Xbox 360.  While good for a while, it's time for the new generation to take over.

Here some updates on Schultz, etc....

Interesting that Schultz's head coach in Wisconsin....Mike Eaves, none other than Patrick Eaves dad...Seems like there is another connection going for us! :lol: I don't think that will matter, but it is kinda cool!

If Eaves's "dinner buddy" calls him would it be tampering? :taunt:

Schultz already has said he wants to play in Canada. I don't think we have that good of a chance at landing him, although it would be awesome.

I keep hearing Keith Yandle's name bounced around in trade talks. At 5.2 million through 2015, would any of you rather have him than Suter? I think I would depending on what we'd have to give up to get him.

I realize this isn't the ideal place to ask that question but I didn't want to start my very own Yandle thread.

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

I like Suters all around game better personally.

Some NHL teams believe Schultz is destined to end up with his home province Canucks. We should know more in next few days if not sooner.

Well Suter is definitely better defensively, but I don't know if he's 2 million dollars better defensively. He's certainly no better (or much worse) offensively.
