I feel like this is to replace Hudler plain and simple. Holland is no way done and I still see us landing Suter and either Parise or Semin to round us out, or making a few moves if we miss out on them. People saying that this takes us out of the running for Parise or another top-six forward are just blowing this way out of proportion.

At least the wings have a guy that can be counted on to score when the top lines aren't scoring... Samuelsson is pretty decently physical... Right handed... Finds open ice... Strong second PP guy. We will have a nice third line with lots of options on the first two lines next year

I never had the rabid dislike for Sammy that the rest of you did. I'm fine with the signing (not the money amount) as long he puts up his 09-10 numbers.
The Vladinator He earned the NHL Plus/Minus Award in 1995-96, with a plus/minus difference of plus-60. The +60 has been the highest rating a player has finished with in the past 20 seasons, since Wayne Gretzky finished with a +70 in the 1986-87 NHL season

Horrible, horrible deal.
3M for 200 missed shots and soft play. Should have kept Hudler instead.

If we don't land a big name FA, with the past couple years the trade deadlines/ free agency... Signing Tootoo and Sammy... I'll jump on the fire Holland bring in Yzerman bandwagon.
Not now chief, I'm in the zone.

if this is for the third line then I'm fine. Sammy is excellent 3rd line player but not that good for the second line.
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

1. Why sign ANOTHER 35+ guy to a multi-year deal? Especially if health is a concern.
2. Why a no-trade clause????? Enough with these already! (Although, Holland doesn't realize you can actually trade players on your active roster.)
3. Why 3 million dollars per year????????? This guy is on the decline and should not get a raise over his last contract!
4. Why Mikael Fing Samuelsson??????????

I'm assuming this either means the Wings are going all-in for Nash and will need players like Samuelsson to fill roster spots because they're going to gut the roster, or they aren't getting Parise, Semin, or anyone else of any quality at all. Also, I bet this buries Nyquist at Grand Rapids for the year.

This is so stupid. I didn't expect much today, but I didn't think I'd get pissed off, either.

I remember him being more a Shanny-like player who was good at shooting from spots, and some ok amount of puck control, but he was slow and his defence skills left something lacking. Not terribly happy with this one.

What's going to happen to Emmerton and Mursak is the real question here. We just signed 3 more forwards today when we are already having a battle for the last roster spot.

Honestly this is an upgrade over Hudler. I don't see why everyone is still freaking out. I was freaking out at first but Hudler was more useless than Samuelsson is. He might be injury-ridden but he puts up decent numbers (for the amount of games played) for $3mil and he uses his body.
