Basing it on how free agency has worked for the wings don't count on it. There's more teams in better position to win a cup. Not to mention these teams are offering more money .

I agree. D town doesn't appeal to free agents like it use too. Every free agent we have our eye on we gotta compete against other teams with the same dollars. Is it our euro factor or the age of our team?

We already have a player with a few years left in Bertuzzi, why would we want another one?


Because Doan brings the crazy to the ice and opponents think less about hockey and more about Doan when he's out there.

Doan should pitch in some money to help Jamison keep the Coyotes in Glendale.

"I like our team,I'm content with the roster..."and within the next 48h Ken tried to get Nash and Weber.

He's disappointed as you and me,but doesn't want to show it in media.

That's why there are more chances to get Semin than any canadian.

...and just like you and me AND the media, he is thinking why doesn't anyone want to be here? Because Holland lowballs...In this market, if you want to big names, you have to overpay, outbid, and offer REAL helluva offers for star players... I am glad he has tried, but if he didn't try as hard as everyone else, then he didn't really try, did he? His model remains the same...Euro, Euro, N/A, Euro. Then bring in or back OLD Euro. Sammy is an upgrade as a whole over Hudler, Brunner we don't know, Tootoo, baffles me wy he came here, he probably thought 99.9% that his buddy Suter was coming here, just like the rest of the world, just like Suter did, until his wife ruled otherwise and Holland offered him less money than Minny...Holland can still redeem himself by acquiring Ryan...which would help bigtime in getting Perry or Getzlaf next year. (but I doubt he gets any of them.) I still belive by time training camp hits, Lilja will be a Wing again...

I fully, FULLY expect Hudler to be back in 4 years...this is Holland's model. He refuses to change with the times...

It has nothing to do with D town being less desirable of a location... I highly doubt the Euro-factor or the overall team age (which is lower than it has been in a while and actually younger than Pittsburgh).

The fact of the matter is, there is much more parity in the league now, and you can't count any team out. This past Stanley Cup is evidence of that. An 8 and a 6 seed... enough said.

With Nash being traded and with the pending time to run out for Nashville to match Shea, the log jam of waiting may start to free up in the next few days

lol Doan is equal to or equal to Bert? :tounge:

Does anyone know what other teams he plans on meeting with yet? I know he said he is going to meet with more GMs, but has it been said that Detroit is for sure one of them, or is it just assumed? I know I read Kenny wants to meet with him.

Feelings Doan signs with the Rangers? Do they have the space considering they just acquired Nash?

Doan and Nash on the same line...

They actually moved out slightly MORE salary in the trade. They have the space to sign Doan, even after resigning Del Zotto and Stralman. I would put my money on the Rangers way ahead of the Wings at this point. But hey, "Dream until the dream is gone (along with other viable options)" has been the motto this off-season :)

they can't be stupid about this because they need to re-sign MDZ and Stralman this offseason and then re-sign Stepan, McD, Sauer and Hagelin the next offseason. Stepan and McD will get big money deals and with the possibility of the Cap going down in the the new CBA they shouldn't risk spending to the cap this offseason after re-signing their boys and considering the cost of re-signing the guys next offseason.

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