I would be so stoked if that is the team we start the season with. Wowzerz.

i really hope we can get 2 or 3 UFA's in and ive a funny feeling that we have a trade lined up as well.

if i hear sunday night, 'we like our team and the price was too high,its off to the Griffins for me!!

no i honestly feel we are going to see the biggest roster movements we have seen in several years.

I have a feeling we won't get any big names. I'd do anything for Parise, Suter, Semin, and Garrison, but I just don't see any of those happening, realistically.

I see Suter coming here for sure....others are up in the air. Holland will need to fill at least ONE top 6 role. I am still hoping for a Nash trade, but we all know the list of UFA's for plan's B - Zzz. Most important is Suter hands down, bar none, the juckf****** pott...

Hoping for another Christmas in July like we had in 2001. Suter, Parise and Doan would pretty much do that.

As am I. Put Nash on Datsyuk's line all year and he's a 50+ goal scorer. He's making $7.8 mil, but its looking like Parise is going to cost that much and Nash is a much better goal scorer than Parise. Plus, I think a trade like this would really shake up this franchise which really hasn't changed since winning the Cup in '08. Sometimes a shake up is needed. We lost Dino Ciccarelli, Keith Primeau and Paul Coffey in one off season who were big parts of our success and just added Brendan Shanahan, but that was a needed shake up that gave more ice time to guys like Draper, McCarty and Lapointe that made us different to play against and a better playoff ready team and we went on to win back to back Cups.

I don't think Holland has the option of his "we're happy with what we've got" or "re-signing Helm was our free agent day pick-up" cliché crap this year because the team as it stands now won't make the playoffs. For once, he can't just sit on his hands and complain about everything being overpriced.

There's no such thing as overpriced. Salaries have gone up as the cap has hyperinflated and other teams are managing to sign top players and be competitive so it's no excuse. There are no excuses, they've all run out.

Make or break tomorrow. It should be exciting, at the very least.

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.

Smokie?!

I just feel like parise will resign him. I know they have money problems but I think they'll find a way to get it done.

Gustavsson. Chyeaa

I predict Nashville will sign Gustad to a 4 year 13M deal.

I guess Twitter and TSN helped with that prediction? Wow...$3.25 for a 4th liner. Is it just me, or are the other teams over paying just in order for the Wings to significantly over pay to get what they need/want. Gonna have to open the check book up this time Kenny.

Suter-Detroit

Parise-Detroit or New Jersey

Doan-Phoenix (I think he will retire here)

Jagr-Philadelphia

If Philly gets Nash they will have no need for Jagr. Then Jagr can go back and play with the pens and Mario can come out of retirement again to play with him.

I really haven't seen his name mentioned but I would not mind the Wings bringing Ray Whitney back for a second tour...especially if it keeps Jagr out of here.

I know the guys 40, but he still has wheels, right handed shot, and puts the Puck in the net.

Semin on a line with dats is scary. Suter and a trade with Phoenix to get yandle would be nice. I read at the NHL draft holland and Phoenix gm were talking.

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.

Spot on for matt Carle. Impressive!
