In the words of the late great Colonel Sanders I'm too drunk to taste this chicken
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.

Oh no! A guy that helped win the Stanley Cup in 08'!!! You guys freak out too much. Do I love this signing? Not really, do I like it? Sure. Money is a little rough but you know he isn't any worse than HUDLER. So welcome back Mikael, good luck.

I like Sammy. Unfortunately I feel like I'm about to lose someone I like better.

Worst signing since Jason Williams. Holland you SUCK.

Funny, I remember reading posts like this when Dallas Drake was signed by the Wings the year they won the cup. :P

Here's my reaction to Samuelsson and Tootoo. Something has GOT to be brewing in the trade department. I don't think we'll land Parise (I will be stunned if we do) so we are going to need a top 6 Forward. I am wondering if a Nash or Ryan trade is in the works. I still think we get Suter.

So are we officially out of the running for Suter and Parise????

No I still think were in for Suter. Parise my guess is yes unless Kenny has a major deal on the horizon.

I have a feeling Nash is on his way to Detroit via trade.

Again, trying to stay positive....at least someone else already signed Meech so Holland can't bring him back too.

I thought Nyquist was going to replace Huds. Further, Tatar could have replaced him. This signing confuses me because Sammy seems redundant.

Holland has officially lost it. His recepie for improving our team anymore is simply to bring back former players.

What an absolutef****** joke we just wasted 3M a year on this guy.

Holland, been saying it year and year again, YOU ARE WORTHLESS

Samuelsson must have some black ace that none of us understand -- like a potion that makes Johan Franzen score playoff goals. Otherwise, this signing seems difficult to understand. On the other hand, he does provide some qualities that this team could use: a right handed shot, a big body (whether or not he plays like it), a shoot first mentality and reasonably affordable.

I don't like that he receives a raise from his previous 2.5 mil contract, considering his recent injury troubles. But just remember that far worse players are making more, and that this kind of overpayment is simply the nature of free agency. Tim Connolly's $5.5 million/year contract from Toronto last year comes immediately to mind. Fortunately we have the cap space to absorb this contract, though I agree that the matter of lacking remaining spots in the lineup is very puzzling!

Overpaid but produces some points, has a little more size than Huds and already knows the system. Oh well, bye Hudler!

Drake was signed close to league minimum, not $3M a year for two years WITH an NTC. Completely different. This guy, especially at 35, is supposed to score 25 goals a season? Especially with all the injuries?

It seriously boggles the head. What the hell is wrong with our GM?

I agree this means a trade is brewing where Nyquist and/or Flip are gone. Otherwise we don't have a roster spot for Sammy.
