Hearing NJD GM Lou Lamoriello to meet with Zach Parise today, one final time before Parise is scheduled to hit UFA market 12 noon tomorrow.

Parise expected to be in Toronto-area offices of his agents/advisors tomorrow to field offers/calls/visits etc.

As someone else said, this is a pivotal year because we lost in round 1 (means our team was average at best) and we lost Lids, Stu, and possibly Hudler ... if we don't get some big time players to take us to the next echelon, we'll be one of those teams that struggle to make it to the playoffs. Isn't that justification for panic?

I'm already starting to panic seeing Twwets that Pittsburgh is ready to offer Parise 10/75-85 mil. While Parise isn't the biggest need, he's my favorite non-Wing and would love to see him rocking the Winged Wheel.

That said, my guessing and feelings about tomorrow are cloudier than they've ever been going into July 1.

Just have to wait and see...

I have a bad feeling that we as fans will be very dissapointed with how things go tomorrow. The Wings have been slipping as a major power house in the league over the past couple of seasons and I think that is why Ken Holland has had a hard time making the big deal we all have been looking for. Elite players are looking for long term contracts with teams that are already loaded with talent that will be in the running for the cup each and every year. As others have pointed out, we lost 3 very impportant pieces this year and don't tell me that the UFA's have not noticed. Will fans panic if Ken Holland and co can't put together a team that will compete for the cup next year? Your damn right we will.

This may very well be the first year that Holland HAS to overpay to get what he wants....I am perfectly fine with giving Suter upwards of $8M per year for 7-10 years...but after that Holland will need to be a little more frugal. From what's tweeting today, Pens are favorites for Parise, I am fine with that as long as we get Suter, then some solid plan B's like Semin/Doan, hell we may even pull off that blockbuster to acquire Nash....I think Nash in Detroit is just as good as Parise in Pitt....I personally would love Nash here, just interested to see what would be required to give up! Sign Suter, Sign Garrison, sign Quincey then trade him to Columbus in a package that would get us Nash... I don't care if it would cost us Franzen or Filppula, Nash is worth it, he is locked up for 6 more years and after winning a couple of Cups, he will definitely finish his career here!

I don't know what it would take, but lets start with Filppula, Emmerton, Mursak, (sign & Trade) Abbdelkader, (sign and trade) Quincey, add in Tatar (or Andersson both are top 10 prospects in our system) and a 1st. This may be overpayment, but we need to open up a few roster spots for the UFA's I want...so trade (waive) these guys no matter if they are in the package or on there own.


FORWARDS
Rick Nash ($7.800m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Johan Franzine ($3.955m)
Shane Doan ($5.000m) / Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Todd Bertuzzi ($2.075m)
Damien Brunner ($1.000m) / Darren Helm ($2.125m) / Danny Cleary ($2.800m)
Drew Miller ($0.838m) / Peter Mueller ($3.000m) / Brandon Prust ($1.250m)
Patrick Eaves ($1.200m) / Gustav Nyquist ($0.875m) /
DEFENSEMEN
Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Ryan Suter ($8.000m)
Ian White ($2.875m) / Jason Garrison ($1.500m)
Brendan Smith ($0.875m) / Jonathan Ericsson ($3.250m)
Jakub Kindl ($0.883m) /
GOALTENDERS
Jimmy Howard ($2.250m)
Al Montoya ($0.875m)

SALARY CAP: $70,200,000; CAP PAYROLL: $69,958,712; BONUSES: $37,500
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $241,288

If you got Semin instead he would cost less than Doan, and be slotted with Dats.

I know this scenario will not happen, but something similar if we can get Nash! Also, if they wanted Franzine instead, that is fine, just move Bert back with Dats and Fil back with Z...

Just reading Kulfans article about Holland being aggressive tomorrow, why does he say Wings have aprox. $18M when they have $24M? Quincey and Abby are not signed yet, so they still have $24M

id be pissed if we offered quincey 1 year and then hes a ufa and leaves , we gave up a first round pick for a 1 year rental? and if he's not what we hope he will be next year we trade him , someone will take on a one year deal at 3.5

Just say no to Quincey...Holland qualified him for $3.125M...let him go RFA or sign and trade him.

in chatting with people over the recent weeks, I keep hearing Detroit is a hotbed for free agents, everyone's dream would be to play for Detroit, its the greatest franchise in history, these players would be idiots if they didn't sign here, etc.. Well, As far as I see, the glory years of the dominant Wings franchise have passed. All of those things were true at one point. But now, there are no dominant forces in the league. Every team has a chance at the cup. Why would/should these players sign in Detroit? Because we can pay top dollar? (just like most other teams), because of the Wings history? These guys are a part of the present, and future. When it comes to who to sign with, who cares about history (In my opinion) And to top it off, our city is a piece of SH*T. Even our suburbs are in a definite decline. If I was an NHL player (obviously am not) I would look at the team first. Swiss cheese defense, (even with the addition of Suter), only 3 strong and consistent forwards (Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Helm) and only 2 high end prospects (Smith, Nyquist). So, why would these guys want to come here? Lidstrom is gone, that power house franchise that once was the hotbed for free agents is long gone. As far as I can see, not signing Parise and Suter is bad enough. but even if we do land both, there's still some holes to fill.

I don't think it's panicking to get upset today if we don't acquire anything meaningful today. Our team has been slowly getting worse, exiting the playoffs earlier and earlier, and our defense is an empty chasm compared to what it was even last year. If we are keen to avoid a rebuilding phase and stay competitive and ensure we have a postseason, there's going to have to be some big moves.

If we don't get Suter, at least we have Ericsson and his $3.2m contract.

We will have the first overall next season to keep us warm if that's Holland's plan.

I think it is extremely simple, two major UFAs are hitting free agency today if you have to overpay do it. A guy like Suter may be worth 7,5 so if you overpay him by 0,5 or even 0,75 so what? In the end it will be worth it because he is our best option to reduce the hole Stuart and Lidström left.

Same goes for Parise but I think he will sign with the Penguins or Kings.

This team has to make some noice dare I say boom(?) this summer, otherwise we will be a team fighting for a playoff spot and maybe miss it for the first time since 21 years.

I'll be pissed if Holland gives us that "Well, Eaves will be our free agent acquisition when he comes back, so I like the team we have," garbage.
