A: No, the NTC makes it a bad contract, otherwise yes.
B: Helm's, The other two lines have guys who like to shoot from the perimeter (Brunner and Zetterberg).
C: No, every scoring line needs a guy who likes to shoot.
D: Yes, he's done it before and we don't have anyone else
A: Yes, he's a thief's bargain for his intangibles
B: No, PP's are about scoring, Helm can't score.
C: Not much, if any. Maybe more assists with the right wingers.
D: No, Filppula or Franzen is.
A: He'll get a contract similar to Ericsson's, but I don't think we'll resign him.
B: No, we need a more diversified defensive corps
C: Yes, but not as well (nobody can).
D: No, his play will force that. They'll give him a lowball offer and be o.k. with him signing somewhere else for more, a la Hudler.

a - 3 mill is pretty steep especially when ya consider his age, and probable decline in production
b - agree with others by saying the 3rd line
c - helps since this team doesn't have any true snipers and yes Franzen isn't a true sniper since he's way too inconsistent
d - no White, Cola, and Smith are much better options at the point for the pp
a - yes, and he's only getting better
b - no since he's better at pk
c - yes since his speed alone makes him dangerous
d - maybe 6th, or 7th, but not 3rd
a - depends on his play, but I'm thinking a slight raise (think $3 to $3.25 mill per season for 3 seasons)
b - probably since I don't have a crystal ball to see who'll be available (Dmen) via trade/buyouts/ufa
c - he's played well everywhere he's been prior to becomming a Red Wing although we'll see what he can do without Nick, and I'm guessing he'll have a few more misques every now, and then
d - I think Kenny can understand the players frustrations, and I wouldn't be too surprised if Holland thinks Bettman is a tool (remember Devellano's comment, and fine) plus he's been thru much worse (Fedorov's contract in 1998, and off ice issues concerning Kournikova)

SamuelssonA) Is he worth the 3 mil, 2 years, NTC contract?HELL NO. In this new cap structure Sammy is not worth 3 mill. He isn't 1/2 the player datsyuk is.B) Will he play best on Datsyuk's line, Zetterberg's line, Helm's line or Abdelkader's line?Helm's line. His constant shooting will cause loss of possession on dats and z's line. Helm can grind it out to get the puck back.C) Does his constant shooting mentality hurt or benefit the team?Depends how accurate he is this season... if past years are an indicator then yes, it hurts.D) Serious question: would you play him at the point on the PP?Leaves us vulnerable.HelmA) Is he worth 2.15 mil annually for 4 years?YESB) Would you play him on the PP?NOC) Can he improve offensively?YES. Golfball on cement.D) Would you say he's the 3rd most important forward on the Wings?NO. That award goes to Fil.WhiteA) Predict the economics of his next contract2.5-3 mill per yearB) Would you offer him that deal?Yes if no free agents available.C) Can he play well without Lidstrom?He will be exposed a little more.D) Will his controversial public comments force Kenny to not offer him an extension?Dunno.

A. No. The NTC makes it a bad contract.
B. I think he'll bounce between the 2nd and 3rd lines.
C. Benefits the team. You can never shoot too often.
D. Meh. I don't know. Maybe on the 2nd PP unit. He's got experience.
A. Absolutely. He's one of the most underrated players in the NHL, in my opinion.
B. No. He's built for the PK.
C. I think so.
D. I'm not sure about 3rd, but he's a big piece to our team.
A. Depends on how he plays this year. Around $3 mil/year seems about right.
B. We'll see how he plays. I don't mind him.
C. Yeah, although his play will suffer without Lidstrom, like everyone else.
D. Doubt it. He spoke his mind. Who cares? Players should be allowed to criticize an idiot when they see one.
