Too too is a great 4th liner and Samuelsson is a great 3rd liner ... No way our forwards our worse than last year... Pretty much guarantee suter to Detroit. Trade for Nash and im a happy camper. 7.6M is harsh but Nash is a much better option than Pairise except for losing Flippula likely. We need goal scorers


Parise is a goal-scorer. And he's better than Nash overall. Why does it seem like pratically no one around here knows anything about the guy?

Not that I disagree with where you're coming from. Just sayin'.

Now I'm hoping and praying that we can at least get Suter and we make a BIG Trade. Very disappointed in these signings. I really can't express how bad I feel without using some foul language and I don't wanna get kicked off here for my Angry Words right now.

There is nof****** trade that makes any sense. The only thing I want is Sammy and Tootoo gone. I will keep five sammuelsons if we can get rid of Tootoo NOW.

I am sof****** pissed. I have no faith in this team now, and it has too many people I hate on it now.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

7 1/2 hours into FA, the big names all still out there, we have offers in for them, a boatload of cap space left, and a bunch of players to give us a ton of flexibility for trades or roster depth...

And you're angry? Expecting a little much I think...

That isn't a stanley cup roster. That's an out in the first round again roster.

After resigning both Abby and Quincey we will have roughly 12 million left to spend

I pulled this number from another thread, should have checked the math. I hate the Sammy signing because I feel like we're pretty much going to lose Flip or Franzen. I wouldn't mind losing Franzen, but I believe Flip is too valuable at this point. 12 Million isn't enough to sign both Suter and another top 6 forward, nor do we have roster space for one without a trade.

I am simply keeping my mouth shut and waiting till 1am on Tuesday morning before I trash the entire organization or praise it. There's just has to be more coming.

Dont forget - theres the 10% overage rule for the cap in the offseason which gives us an additional 7 million to spend. If anyone isnt connecting the dots its likely that a forward or two will be dealt either one way or another. We are still competitive and above average if we stand pat on forward now - but if we can package a deal for Nash or sign Parise/Semin and send a few of our boys elsewhere for a few picks I wont be suprised.

I read Holland, Illitch and Babcock met with Parise at 3pm in Toronto today, the signings of Samuelson and TooToo didn't happen until after 3pm. I bet they knew they weren't getting Parise after the meeting, so now they are moving to plan B which is probably trade for Nash or Ryan.

His agent cancelled all face-to-face pitches because the demmand was so high. Twitter was reporting the Wings had made their offer around 1:30 - I still think there's a chance to grab both, but I think Suter and a trade is more likely.
