The Next Move

I would personally be pretty happy with signing Semin and would love for Doan to become available. I think trading for Yandle is something that should be held in strong consideration and would like to see an opening night roster that looked something like this:

Semin / Datsyuk / Bertuzzi

Doan / Zetterberg / Filppula

Samuelsson / Helm / Cleary

Eaves / Abdelkader / Tootoo

Nyquist / Miller

Kronwall / White

Yandle / Quincey

Ericsson / Smith

?

The implication here being that Franzen, Kindl, Tatar and a pick go for Yandle; though I still think that bottom pairing isnt quite sufficient. That said, I'm not wild about any of the FA options at defense and wouldn't want to trade more than mid-level prospects for any other available defenseman.

No way Yandle plays 2nd pairing. Arguably the best all around defenseman in the league. This guy must really be flying under the radar for Detroit fans not to know how good he is yet. He's the next best thing to Lidstrom, just so you know. He will be a norris nominee for the next 10 years barring injury.

It will take a lot more than expendables to land Yandle. Smith will have to be part of the package and probably Filppula as well.

While you maybe right about needing more firepower to get Yandle, I can't imagine the Coyotes - with all their uncertainty - wanting a guy in a contract year.

I think its pretty obvious now that the main FA left that Holland is targeting is Doan, especially considering all his "we need veteran leadership comments".

While he's a great player, can someone please explain to me why we need him of all people? I just don't get it. Veteran leadership? Most of our core team are seasoned veterans!

Datsyuk - 33

Zetterberg - 31

Franzen - 32

Kronwall - 31

Bertuzzi - 37

Sammy - 36

Clearly - 33

Given this, it seems we have plenty of veteran leadership and I just fail to see what Doan could possibly provide except some toughness and some more goals. We should be trying to get younger, trying to get a sniper to play wing with Pav. Another 35+ player on a team of aging veterans? I just don't get it.....

Thats the point. Its one year so weber is out next season

So why not go for a high contract for one year? Why give Nashville a discount? They said they would match any offer so give him an insane amount of money. That way you screw Nashville and Weber is happier with the wings for getting him so much. Money

I understand defending Holland but what exactly did he do lately to be considered "the best in the business bar none"?

I think we will be competitive with what we have, I don't think that's an issue.

I don't think we win the cup with any moves we make at this point so I don't want to blow the cap overpaying players.

If we get Yandle/Semin, Holland can get some respect back.

Jesus. Because then we have to give up 4 first rounders for one year of shea weber i they are smart enough to pull the carpet out from under us. They really should take those picks and run at this poit rather than letting weber walk for nothing.

Betcha Holland is putting together his best pitch for Shane Doan...... It would be an excellent recovery step. 4 years avg 5.75 cap hit.

I hope he does a better job than he did with Suter.

Hence acquiring Bobby Ryan...adding Shane Doan only helps this team...This guy can and will score 30+ goals playing with Pav or Z...Ryan scoring 40 is not unrealistic. Bobby Ryan is 24...trade for him then in three years tie him up for the rest of his career...Parise who?

to ANA : Val Filppula, Jan Mursak, Tomas Tatar, 2nd round pick

to DET : Bobby Ryan

it's almost explains itself....sign Doan, Kubina, Q if the price is right... Roll On! (Getzlaf, Perry, Weber available next July)

Holland needs to go. Hes not doing his job.

What do you mean? He offered Suter less money so he could play for your team....he did it for you!

4 picks between 25 and 30 is a discount for Weber buddy

Does anyone know the absolute MOST any one player can make on a team?

26% of the cap, I believe. Could be 24 though.

We arent picking in the last 10 prolly for a few years. I think we will have around 15 this year with our current lineup. I think theyd rather get picks rhan lose for nothing like suter.
