I was trying to work something on Capgeek and we have too many players ESPECIALLY on wings. With Brunner, Franzen, Sammy, Eaves, Mursak. And consider Nyquist, Fil, Cleary, Bert, Miller, Tootoo on left wing. We HAVE to be trading someone. I feel like Franzen, Cleary, Nyquist could be out and Ryan or Nash coming back.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Sammy is a winner, he helped Florida do well this year he was huge in the playoffs for Van a couple of years ago, he was a playoff performer for us when we had him.

Welcome back Samuelson Im happy to have you back here, you play at both ends of the ice.

This move does not make us younger, hungrier, faster or harder to play against. And he didn't exacly light the world on fire after leaving here. Heck, he pretty much sucked. So why bring him back AND give him a NTC? I could see if it was a sign and trade for someone we REALLY WANT....but this really makes no sense. Get someone up and coming, not someone who's peaked already.

I get that feeling, too. We just have too many players right now. Forgive me for speculating on lines as they stand now but we have:

Franzen-Datsyuk-Brunner
Samuelsson-Zetterberg-Filpulla
Tootoo-Helm-Bertuzzi
Miller-Emmerton-Eaves
Nyquist

And we're still waiting on Abdelkader and Homer and are likely to get a top line scorer. So that's two, possibly three spots to clear.

And on defense we have:

Kronwall-Ericsson
White-Smith
Kindl

Still waiting on Quincey and presumably a top defenseman.

Honestly, I'm not sure I like that defense. I feel like we really need to upgrade Kindl's spot or else hope that Smith has an outstanding breakout year.


EDIT: On the bright side, combining Tootoo and Bertuzzi on a line could be fun.

Good trade bait, but if we keep him, he's a big upgrade over Hudler for similar cost. They shoulda let hudler go before samuelson to begin with.

This is the single most disgusting and disappointing Red Wings related news I've heard in a long, long time.

Unbefreakinglievable Holland. You have lost it.

It's not like they signed Boyd Devereaux or traded for Leino.

when I heard this I was initially shocked but I thought hey at least it isn't Hudler

but 3m? ntc? ...

I'd rather have Jagr/Doan/Anyone but Sammy or Hudler

It's like a big joke. Holland biggest troll in sports. I'm holding out hope to get blown away tomorrow. We need more than just Suter.

OMGGGGG been out all day and night and i find out samuelsson's back???? wtfffffffffffffffff i was pro holland but this is f*cken ridiculous , he should be fired just for this stupid signing!

My god i thought we were rid of samuelsson for good and now this ! wtf is wrong with him man, he's too loyal and always brings back ex players ! at this point i wont even be shocked anymore if hudler and holmstrom returns !

2 more years of this crappppppp god help me man

and 3 million cap hit??? WTFFFF really lost for words im stunned

when I heard this I was initially shocked but I thought hey at least it isn't Hudler

but 3m? ntc? ...

I'd rather have Jagr/Doan/Anyone but Sammy or Hudler

It's like a big joke. Holland biggest troll in sports. I'm holding out hope to get blown away tomorrow. We need more than just Suter.


rather of given a 40 year old jagr a 2 yr 6 million dollar deal .... holland's lost his f'n mind , problem with this team is they stick to the same guys and bring back old players because they are "familiar" with them ... its a load of horse crap

It's not like they signed Boyd Devereaux or traded for Leino.



at this rate devereaux will come out of retirement or wherever the hell he is and come back here ... dont jinx us lol

I'll be honest, this move doesn't make any sense to me at all.

Kenny had to fill the soft on the boards doesn't backcheck euro floater who shoots in the goalies chest role and what better to bring back the O.G. I wouldn't mind him for 1.5m as a depth signing but this is retarded with so many better options out there.

I try to think of him as a Hudler replacement (assuming he stays healthy and scores 20+ goals), but at the same time it's hard for me to get excited about having both Bertuzzi and Sammy for 2 years with NTC and 35+ contracts.

Geeze its not like we signed Commodore like last year, lol, granted the money is a bit much, but until this roster is set, people need to calm down. Detroit fans, can be some of the biggest fair weather fans of all major sports. Still a bunch of scenerios left for the Wings that can happen. Damn we could end up with Nash, Parise and Suter and you people would complain about not getting Bobby Ryan too.

This is just a joke on so many levels. 3 mil....for a guy who's been plagued with injury problems.......who's turning 36 this year....who has given no indication he can even manage over 15 goals anymore.....I mean, is this Holland's answer for everyf****** problem? Just to bring back guys we NEEDED to part with in the first place?

We had a major opportunity to make a splash this year, and Holland fails yet again. I'm surprised he signed anyone and didn't just say, "I like our team and I think some of our GR boys are ready".

Fire this guy already....for gods sake FIRE HIM.
