I mean, no one saw this coming; its unfortunate for both parties involved. If Sammy is bought out this summer, will a portion of his contract still count against the cap? Or does the definition of an amnesty buyout mean that there is no penalty?

 

I wouldn't go that far, he's had injury troubles in the past.

 

But he was worth the risk. We didn't risk anything signing him, he was the best option at the time.

This offseason will determine whether Ken Holland should still be employed with the Wings organization.

 

Please put Smith on the Power Play!

Was Jason Williams coming off a .57 ppg season?

 

Close. Williams averaged .5875 PPG the season before he came back to the Wings.

I'm perfectly fine with Sammy not coming back and utilizing the buyout on him this summer.

His impact would be minimal anyways even if he could stay healthy and it probably also knocks Nyquist out of the lineup.

Depending how sore the pec is it can be a very difficult injury to play with.  Personally, I'd rather have a healthy guy in there than someone like Cleary who is a total waste of space out on the ice the past two seasons. 

 

Yzerman missed a ton of games due to injury.

Wasn't Semin still available?

Yzerman missed a ton of games due to injury.

Yzerman first injured his knee in 1988 sliding into a goalpost that didn't come off its moorings. Then he played most of his career with little or no cartilage in that knee. Not to mention returning to play after a full osteotomy in 2003 as a 37 year old. Then came back from taking a puck to the eye.

I'm not quite sure how Yzerman missing "a ton of games" due to injury in his 22 year career pertains to Sammy not skating due to a sore pectoral muscle.

per the earlier question. if an amnesty buyout is used, there is 0 zero nadda cap hit. he gets his money and we get complete cap relief.

Yzerman scored his 50th goal (a great highlight reel goal, I'm surprised it's not on youtube, I just tried to find it) in the 64th game of the season against the Sabres on that play

Yzerman and Sammy don't belong in the same thread. Yzerman deserves much much better.


And BTW Sammy was a waste. I understand bringing in a vet for the depth. But two years and a ntc was just silly. Could of done one year saw he was done and its over with.

Personally I wish we didn't sign him but hindsight is 20/20. But if healthy I thought he was just going to take up a roster spot that is much rather see Nyquist or Tatar in

I guess this is kind of a needless rant post, but is this guy for real? I saw today that he didn't practice again because he has a "sore pectoral muscle." Have some pride man...there are guys out there who play with broken bones, I mean cleary basically skates on one leg. Step it up and help the team or good riddance.

 

I had a good laugh at this too.... poor poor Sammy with his sore sphinctoral muscle. He should be embarassed! Remember Stevie wincing in pain everytime he got up off the ice that one season and still was a productive player? Remember Duncan Keith losing a bunch of teeth and only missing a few shifts? Come on Sammy, be a man!

Unless you knew all along that you were going to buy him out between year 1 & 2 anyway.
