At this point, we are going to have to overpay for talent. Either that, or just bring up the kids and focus on making the playoffs.

I prefer bringing up the kids and signing long term contracts with Justin Abdelkader, Valtteri Filppula, Pavel Datsyuk and Brendan Smith. We can always sign Shea Weber for $8.5 million per year next year. He's one of the few players worth the money.

Seem like Doan's price tag is unreal. I dont think he should get anywhere near $7.5 M at this point in his career. He would have been an interesting option at $4-5 M perhaps...

If everyone is awaiting lowering salary cap with new CBA, then maybe all these unreal new contracts make sence, because some contracts will be adjusted.

the problem is the reduction is proportional to the drop in the cap, therefore, it'll still take up the same percentage of cap.

I don't think his price tag starts at 7.5m at all. Thats what is rumored that the jets had offered him. They are simply saying the "bidding war" starts at that because its been the first public offer to be released. Ihe w

Honestly that doesn't sound too bad right now. Let's save our resources for next year perhaps and see what we've got talent wise.

I'd rather bring the kids up personally and try to trade one of our surplus forwards for some extra Defense-man depth or a draft pick.

So much for wanting to stay out West :P. "One offer Doan has is a four-year contract in excess of $30 million"........... :bye1:

According to hockeyinsiderr or whoever that is said the Jets were the Eastern team to offer that big contract. Not that hockeyinsidrr or whoever that is is a reliable source.

Doan just sign with the Coyotes and get this drama filled saga over with please kk.

Guess Holland really wowed him.

This sh*t is really starting to get old... I've held on to my patience but I'm getting ready to jump aboard the "Holland needs to sh*t or get off the pot" bandwagon. What good is it to bring up the young guys if the young guys are going to have confidence issues from dealing with stacked powerhouses?

We need to sign Ryan now and/or as bad as I hate to say it, offer Semin a worthwhile deal! (I don't really want to see Semin on a red jersey...I couldn't help myself)

I think maybe they should let Babcock hand out the money lol. Kenny is being too tight with his offers. It is not as easy to attract players here as it was a few years ago when the Wings were Cup favorites every year. Not that I want him to do something stupid but come on make a move to better this team already! I have a feeling Doan will not be a Wing.

Holland would be an ******* to sign Doan to some of the contract #'s that are rumored.

Well, since he's apparently not willing to spend any more money, and we still have $16 million, we might as well just offer Doan $16 million for one year.

Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Filppula, Franzen, Samuelsson, Brunner.

That's our top-6, give or take.

:plain:

I think Cleary and Nyquist will be in the mix probably ahead of Sammy (hopefully Babcock won't use him on the point on the PP, I think we got 6 defensemen who could do a better job there)

If Philly gets Weber and Doan then Pittsburgh will poop a brick.

Sounds painful...

On the bright side, would be nice to see Philly beat up on the East coast teams?

If Philly gets Weber and Doan, they will have ALMOST replaced the nastiness that Pronger plays with. :P
