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

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

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.

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

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.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

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

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

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.

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