Brooks Laich has a $4.5M cap hit and has never scored more than 25 goals.
Mike Green is an RFA who made $5.25M last season and is four years removed from his 31 goal season.
I don't understand how you come up with 50+ goals from those two. They would both have to reach their career highs of a number of years ago.
I'm not saying I don't like those two guys but even if Green signed for the same amount as last season you'd be talking about a combined $9.75M cap hit. You can do a lot better than those two for that cap hit. Not to mention the Wings would have to move players to get those two.
yes you add 10 million for those 2, but you subtract 7 million ish for franzen, Helm, and Kindl. So if we have 25 million to spend, we only used up 3 million, leaving 22 to add more.....
many of us, myself included only look at 1 move by itself. That is a mistake. heck Holland opnely admits to making 4+ moves: 1 or 2 Dmen, a backup goalie, proven goal scorer, and girtty big physical forward for the bottom 2 lines.
