I thought I read somewhere (impossible to find it again because I have read so many blogs/articles/twitter messages in the past few days) that Doan's agent was soliciting officers - not just from Detroit- in order to use a leverage in his talks with the Coyotes. I hope this is not true and he wants to sign with Detroit.


That could be what he is doing, but I am sure Doan has a list of where he'd like to play and his agent only called those teams. I cannot see his agent calling Carolina if Doan would never sign there...

Also from Chesnokov:

"Gandler, Semin's agent, gives no hints whatsoever. The best I could get out of him was "Semin's priority is to sign with an NHL team.""

Kind of seems to me like he's looking for the best possible offer an NHL team will make.

Blah! I can see him wanting to play with Malkin as well...but Malkin is more of the sniper himself right? Just like Ovi. While Dats can sure put his share in the net, he is more of a setup man and Semin would score more goals playing with him...but if he goes to Pit, then I can't say I blame him either, especially if they are offering more money...

That would be fine, Holland would have to for sure land Doan and then Nash or Ryan...just like Parise, Semin would be great here, but it wouldn't mean the end of the Wings if he weren't...

If the numbers are correct...get it done Kenny.
Assuming some defensive weak d-men like carle or wideman got signed at 5+ mil. cap hit,Semin at 5 mil is a steal.

Yeah I want top 2 d-man,but with Semin signed,giving assets for Yandle would hurt us a bit less.

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

to DET : Bobby Ryan

and

to PHX : Johan Franzine, Joakim Andersson, Dan Cleary, Kyle Quincey, 2nd round pick

to DET : Keith Yandle

Sign Semin and Doan and Mueller...(and no I do not hate Abby)

I just do not think Holland would or ever would give up Franzine or Filppula and that there will define this off season...yes, he went hard after Suter, but the show must go on and he needs to unleash his balls even more!

I'm not opposed to this, but I'd feel better if we were talking about a defenseman right now. We have forwards coming out of places where forwards have no business being in the first place.


There are no good UFA defensemen left. Signing a scoring forward gives the team the capacity to trade away other assets up front.

This degree of turnover would not be good for any team.

Rather save money than going after Semin Doan they wont help us.

This offseason was Suter or bust so lets bust and come back with even more money to handout next year.

or even LESS if the Cap goes down with the new CBA...You cannot go thru the season with $16M in capspace...$6M maybe, but not $16M... Kenny must sign more players...

Can we overpay for semin already and get it over with. We cant afford to not sign him or any new players. We need assets at this point and ufas are free.

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

If Q gets awarded a contract Kenny likes....sign him, sign Semin, Doan and Kubina....I can see Kenny doing that... Not my wish for this team, but Semin and Doan will help out for sure! That's 70-80 goals right there!

It could go down but it could also go up and then the 16 $ million from this season would come in incredbile handy, which might be push us over on the top list for Weber and Getzlaf.

As much as we need some sort of defenseman, even it boils down to Calaiacovo. Detroit needs a goal scorer, in some capacity!

Wasn't it blatantly obvious in the playoffs?! At this point Defense is going to be tough, so please Kenny get something done this free agency.

I am all for Semin, bad attitude or not.

In all honesty, if Holland is having reserves about his attitude, I think the best thing to do would be have Dats give him a call and see how it goes. I mean, with the right leadership, I think this guy could blossom.

Imagine Semin on the same line as Dats......possibilities are endless.

He gets a bad rap... but I think he's a more solid hockey player than most and Datsyuk and him had great chemistry at the Worlds... Sign him up 5 years @ 5.5 cap hit per. I bet he just wants term over money right now (security).


They were quite entertaining together at the Worlds. Not all they tried worked, but with practice I can see some spectacular plays coming (like Dats and Z were making when they played together a lot).
