I thought this might be fun to try and predict where players are gonna land and see who is right. We can even predict their salary too if you would like. I figure if Eklund can do it so can we.

I'll say that...Matt Carle winds up in Tampa Bay for 5.5 Million
Jokinen ends up in Carolina for 4 Million
Gaustad will go to San Jose because they need that faceoff guy for 2.5 Million.

I just picked a few guys so it doesn't matter who you pick. It's the Eklund game.

Doan to Detroit. Not that I really super want him; I just have a feeling for some reason.

Nobody lives forever.
Some things never die.

They tell me that a Red Wing always flies.

Jaromir Jagr to Flyers

Interesting...

What do you think Boston will send in return for Nash, and likewise the Maple Leafs to Phoenix for Yandle?

You might be onto something with Doan to Chicago; if anyone could use Doan's veteran presence/leadership it would be their problem child Kane.

Me - I'm thinking we'll got Suter - I'm 99% certain he'll become a Red Wing...There's also a good chance on Doan, and possibly Jagr, or Semin...Prust is also on Holland's radar; would fill in on the 3rd/4th line quite nicely.

I was just talking to my sister. She thinks Doan will end up in Pittsburgh and Nash will end up with the Rangers.

Money on the board:  Current total: $6

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Probably because he caught a glimpse of Taylor Stevens behind the bench on TV.

Suter will be in Detroit. Too much is riding on that signing for Holland to let it slip away. He'll get good money to play for an original six team where he'll be stepping into a pivotal role with the potential of developing into a leader. Isn't that what these guys dream about?

Weren't we one of the top if not number one on the list of teams NHL players wanted to play for? We've got the money now so let's hope we have a good week. Merry July 1st eve everyone.

I really don't see Parise going to the Pens.

Shero: "Hey, Zach, Shero-Dawg here. Listen, we lost Jordan Staal Between you and me [*WINK*], he made Sid and Geno - and, in turn, our whole team - look much better than they/it are/is. How'd you like to make Sid and/or Geno look good for the next ten years? Oh, by the way, have I mentioned we don't play defense? Oh, and that meltdown against Philly? They poisoned our water. We're way more mature than that - as a team, as an organization, and as a family. OK, I gotta go take a dump. hollaback!"

This is Christmas Eve for me. Here is where we truly see if Holland has it or if he has jumped the shark! I am hopeful!

What about Draper as the new assistant coach??
Parise - Pens
Suter - Detroit
Semin - Detroit
Schultz - Edmonton
Whiteny - Carolina
Jagr - Detroit
Doan - Phoenix
Carle - Anaheim or Detroit if Holland fails to get Sutter
Hudler - Senators
Brodeur - New Jersey
Ryan Smyth - Edmonton
Kostitsyn - Minnesota
Prust - Detroit
Gaustad - Buffalo
Penner - Los Angeles
Tootoo - Ottawa
Samuelson -Det (Holland can't help himself)

To Detroit - suter, gaustad, and hopefully semin..

Also, if huds goes to LA itd be cool if we could pick up penner. Won't be upset if we dont though.

We're getting suter and this says why perfectly....

Suter will be in Detroit. Too much is riding on that signing for Holland to let it slip away. He'll get good money to play for an original six team where he'll be stepping into a pivotal role with the potential of developing into a leader. Isn't that what these guys dream about?

As for everyone else, a couple that come to mind is..

Brodeur to Tampa

Parise stays in jersey. I know there are money issues but I think they'll figure it out. Just have a feeling he's not going anywhere.

Bobby Ryan to Philly

Huds to Ottawa just sounds right for some reason.

Carle to the avs

Also, I think the wings sign "the monster" as a backup goalie..

Edit: also think the avs might pick up P.A.

I am gonna say Suter/Doan/Prust/Meuller/Garrison/Montoya - Detroit... everyone else I could care less about because nobody will be able to touch us after we acquire Nash to go along with those UFA's!

Sounds about right, IMHO - though I'd change Semin to Parise, because I think we have as good a shot as any club with him, and I don't really like the idea of hoping for Semin.

Also, I think the wings sign "the monster" as a backup goalie..


Smokie?!
