no i like big nasty guys who are physical and bodycheck the crap out of guys and who can occasionally fight ... you know guys we dont have ;)

 

Pretty sure that's Tootoo. He's not big but he's nasty, physical, body checks the crap out of guys and fights. Oh yeah and he has scored this season. Something Clowe hasn't done.

Surprised Clowe went for so much.  

 

I thought he'd have a lower asking price, especially since Bouwmeester was traded for some Italian pastries I've never heard of.

filppula wants 5 million + and hes nowhere near that much money so yes .....

 

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think he or any reliable source has said that he expects $5m.

Yeah I keep hearing this 5 million thing and assume that it's just his agent's starting point for negotiations.  I think he'll resign for 4-4.5 eventually.

I'm pretty sure it started out as conjecture and was picked up by people here as fact.

i seen it around on tsn and sportsnet when they talked about possible trade bait and seeing the prices these players are getting i wouldnt be surprised if hes thinking he can get 5 million from a team ... just today i heard derek roy was asking dallas for 6 million per ... these players are f*cken ridiculous

 

i predict filppula wont get traded and hes gonna go to another team and we'll lose out on a possible 1st round return ... just cause

like you said hes not big ... hes hardly gonna intimidate anyone on boston next year ...nobody should be surprised next year when bostons running over everyone



here

 

 

It's just hard to imagine the Wings offering what Matheson and MLive's Ansar Khan reported was a $4.5-5 million asking price for a player who's skating into the boards and stripping himself of the puck lately.

So Matheson suggests that the Wings need to bite the bullet and part ways with #51 now instead of waiting until the draft to move Filppula's rights--even given the fears that Pavel Datsyuk may head home to be with his daughter in Yekaterinburg after next season:

What you have to understand is the price of players is going up.  The cap space will eventually start going up quick, because the fact of the matter is that hockey players have always been under paid.  That being said, the real question is that do we need a second line center.  Well, that comes down to do we think that Datsyuk will be here another 5 years?  If we think Filp can play as a second line center, than 5 mil is not an unreasonable price.  Think about who else makes around 5mil... Havlat, Kesler, Ribeiro, Doan.... and honestly I think Filp is just as valuable than any of those guys

I'm sorry, but Flip is nothing compared to Doan and Kesler. You're talking about heart-and-soul guys who play physical at both ends of the ice, skate hard, and bury their chances when they get them. Filpulla's just here to collect a paycheck. He disappears and certainly isn't worth 5 mil a season. I doubt he's worth 4.

Question his production, but don't question his hustle and drive.

 

Filppula skates hard every night. He just doesn't have the skill set that this team needs: goal scoring ability.

 

Don't use Franzen descriptions when discussing Filppula. It isn't warranted.

Sure I get they might have more a physical presence on the ice, but keep in mind that last season Filp put up 66pts, 10pts more than Franzen who really has no business on the ice if you're talking about putting out players that play with heart & soul.  The truth is Filp is a player that can put up points, start plays and in my opinion the definition of a 2nd line center.  If I wanted a physical center on our second line than Doan would be perfect, but what we want is someone who has vison.

It wouldn't surprise me though if this is his asking price.

My vision tells me that Shane Doan has never been a center.

I could see Kenny going aftet Enstrom or Babchuk...

He might call his okd buddy Reiger and ask for Stafford, Pominville or Vanek...

Wouldn't be surprised if he goes after Versteeg or Upshall...

In that case, we'll trade Samuelsson for him straight up.

Well, I guess that's the end of that.  He really WAS serious when he said that health would be our deadline moves.  I'm getting so tired of this.
