Wouldn't surprise me if he thinks his 8 goals in 81 games and 0 playoff points is somehow good enough to test free agency for a big money contract.

Didn't want to start a new thread...

We know Q is going to arbitration, but what is the hold up on Abdelkader I wonder? Is he looking at offers? Is he waiting for all the dust to settle? I really would hate to lose him, I am looking forward to seeing him team up with Tootoo for some chaos out on the ice...

All of the Mlive articles mentioning Abby make it seem that a contract is close to being signed.

i was actually just thinking abbys situation as well. there is kind of a log jam up front right now especially in the bottom 6. add in the reports that the wings are interested in semin and/or doan its just hard to imagine where everybody is going to fit. without abb, we have 15 forwards.

bottom 6-
mursak, eaves, miller, emmerton, helm, tootoo, "abs"

could go either-
bert, cleary, sammy, brunner, nyquist

top 6-
datsyuk, zberg, filppula, franzen.


even if we dont sign any top 6 forward(s) and re-sign abs that gives us 16 forwards signed. both nyquist and brunner have the 2-way contracts and in reality could be sent down which would really suck and is something that i really hope doesnt happen but even then, still are at 14 forwards. (14 forwards, 7 d, 2 g)

does this mean emmerton goes? eaves? mursak? signing doan and or semin would improve out top 6.... but then again it seems to make things even more complicated.

maybe abs or miller can play d :) lol

More waiting...
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

Detroit Free Press

"The Wings have been talking to Abdelkader's camp for a while, and the negotiations were going well enough that Abdelkader opted not to file for arbitration by the July 5 deadline, unlike teammate Kyle Quincey. Quincey has a hearing July 25, and while the sides could reach an agreement before then, Quincey would, through arbitration, be assured a one-year deal that would leave him an unrestricted free agent next summer."

I hope both are signed to long term deals shortly.

negotiations are likely already completed with Abs. Kenny is like you said probably just waiting for the new CBA until the signatures are laid.

I can't remember where I read it on Twitter (don't worry, not HockeeyyyyInsiderrrrr) but someone had quoted Abby as saying he expected to sign his new contract next week.

EDIT: I found the actual article from Khan where he adds it as a note

Tootoo did, with less goals (1 of which came on the PP (an opportunity Abdelkader wasn't afforded) scored with a lot more ice-time (only 3 seconds of which was short-handed)

I can't tell if that's sarcasm or not. If not, here's a list of heights on Detroit's website (yes, I know, a lot of guys are "bulked up" by their club)

Forwards:

Justin Abdelkader - 6' 1"
Todd Bertuzzi - 6' 3"
Danny Cleary - 6' 0"
Patrick Eaves - 6' 0"
Cory Emmerton - 6' 0"
Valtteri Filppula - 6' 0"
Johan Franzen - 6' 3"
Drew Miller - 6' 2"
Mikael Samuelsson - 6' 2"

Defensemen:

Jonathan Ericsson - 6' 4"
Jakub Kindl - 6' 3"
Niklas Kronwall - 6' 0"
Kyle Quincey - 6' 2"
Brendan Smith - 6' 1"

Goalies:

Jonas Gustavsson - 6' 3"
Jimmy Howard - 6' 0"
Joey MacDonald - 6' 0"

Anyone with an update regarding Abby?

Regarding or surplus of Forward here's a few things I could see.

Waive Emmerton (I think that is certain to happen)

Try to trade or Waive Mursak for some Defensive Debt.

Send Brunner down to GR.

Though it wouldn't shock me to see a trade with someone out of our Bottom 6 (excluding Helm) being traded in exchange for some Defensive Depth.

Holland told Ansar Khan/Mlive that he's close to signing Abs to a 4 year deal.

Red Wings' Ken Holland said he's close to signing Justin Abdelkader to four-year contract

Abby's not a great player but I like him anyway. Good to see him locked up for a little while.

Emmerton being waived has to be likely. We just don't need him or have room for him, and no one would want him in a trade.

But Babcock already said Brunner is starting in the Top 6, so no Grand Rapids for him. Mursak will be kept because he hasn't really had a chance to show what he's made of and could be good depth.
