I'm not so sure what you're referring to, but damn you made me :lol:

I mean that they have both had their on ice and some off ice issues in the past.  This team has been known for 20 years for a pretty squeaky clean image.  Might be some babysitting costs that need to be involved in the contract.

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

I agree Helm is much more valuable that Abdelkader, but I think Abdelkaders age makes him the most attractive out of the "expendable" bunch.



 

I'd love to have Wayne Simmonds...

 

Yeah, but Philly would be stupid to move him.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Good point. I'm not sure how that would be handled with Lids gone. It remains to be seen how Z would handle, or not handle players like that.

Likely Quote from Holland "We explored our options via trade and the price was just too steep. We will not be pursuing PK Subban."


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

I'd do whatever it takes to get him if you can. He's 23, decent defensively and developing while very good offensively. If we could put him next to Kronwall, the defensive depth goes up. I'd start off with Nyquist/Tatar, Ouellet(top french defense prospect, oui?), Kindl/Ericsson and a 1st and negotiate from there. You pay for this guy, once he's ours Kenny can figure out how to sign him to a good deal. 8 years 48 mil? I'd be willing.

Wouldn't we just be trading for Subban's rights? How an the price be that steep?

Who was the last black guy to play in Detroit?  Nathan Robinson?

 

I always pushed for Holland to get Mike Grier or Georges Laraque, but he never did.   

Kenny Holland strikes me as a fella who prides himself on having proper manners.

 

You probably didn't say "please".

What's being ignored in this thread so far is that Kenny doesn't need to trade for Subban to land him.  He's an RFA so technically Kenny could float an offer sheet.  It won't happen, but in theory he could.  That also comes with the risk that the Habs would match it too and if they didn't, the Wings would lose future draft picks.

Kris Draper looked like Lenny. Subban looks like Carl. Damn, only a couple seasons too late.

what's interesting is that the world knows that they're off on term years. subban wants a long term contract, while the club wants a 2 yr. yes, they're off my the millions but it's not that bad. from the start it's always been a term problem. what would be VERY interesting is if teams did throw offer sheets subbans way. would be sign one that contained a 5 yr contract? would he force the hand of montreal? in all honesty, i don't see him forcing anything because montreal already showed that they would start the season without him. they aren't budging, he's the one that isn't playing while the rest of the league is. normally when it comes to offer sheets, i would immediately say it's a bad idea because they would match asap, but it would be real interesting to see what montreal would do when an offer sheet came in regarding a 5 yr contract.

An offer sheet for Subban would have to be absolutely ridiculous for Bergevin NOT to match it.

Very true.  I wouldn't mind Kenny floating out a 7 year $6-7m contract just to force the Habs to match & screw up their cap situation like Holmgren did with Weber/Nashville.

Subban wants Drew Doughty money.

That being said, would you sign Subban long term for $6 million a season?  This is going to be the Albatross that hangs over any NHL team that wants to trade for him.  If Subban wants the same thing from his next NHL team, will they give it to him?

 

Personally, I think Subban is not worth $6 million a season and a 6-7 year contract.  Thats just too darn much.

HAHAHA it would be great to see someone float Subban an offer sheet, and then screw the Habs in the process. HAHA. If nobody else can have him, at least they'll be saddled with a huge contract!  :clap:

Subban just texted me and said he wants to bring some soul back to Detroit!
