Just a thought, I noticed he still hasn't signed a contract. The devils have said they might be interested, as did the rangers. I think he would be an awesome signing, than we can put him on the second line and waive sammy goodbye. He is 36 but still a proven 20+ goal scorer, which we could certainly use. Just my opinion, would love to hear yours.



Plus there is the addition of how cheap he comes, we could probably get him for less than we payed for sammy

We already have too many forwards. We need a top 4 blue-liner to be a serious contender for a Cup. I think someone will sign him.

That is why i said we waive sammy, he would be cheaper, and more skilled

 I guess that'd be one way around his NTC huh?

Just because he has a no  trade clause doesn't mean we can't buy him out, or send him to GR

We've also got Nyquist down in the AHL who would do just as good of a job as Sykora if not better... If anything this move would be a huge slap in the face to him

Except that if he goes through waivers, clears, & winds up in GR the Wings are still on the hook for his $3m against the cap.  35+ contracts now count against the cap in full in the first year of the contract regardless & are discounted by a whopping $100k in years thereafter.  Not gonna happen.

It sounds like you've been playing way too much NHL 13. Things really don't work like this in real-life management.

No. If you asked 10 years ago, I'd consider it.

Hell no. Clogs up another spot for Tatar/Nyquist/Mursak.

There is no need to insult people here, plus I am not sure what you mean. If you mean he won't be that cheap, than look at his last 3 contracts

Should we pursue Petr Sykora? No, no we shouldn't. Age and position does not fit into our needs at all.

I'll agree that he's a "proven" 20 goal scorer, but I don't think that guarantees he will score 20 goals. Have to remember he's played one NHL season since being waived and released mid-season by Minnesota and then not being able to find work in the NHL...

 

Regardless, I'd pass. We can't exactly just let go of Samuelsson as easily as you insinuate, plus we already have a log jam up front especially after Helm comes off IR. We also have Nyquist, Tatar and Andersson (and possibly Sheahan) who can all take shifts at the NHL level.

 

If we add anything, it needs to be depth on defense.

1. We have plenty of forwards.

2. We're not going to waive a player we just signed. I don't know why some people think thats going to happen. Sammy got signed for a reason, he wasn't signed just for the sake of signing someone.
