Id like him as 3rd line center at 4 mil per for 5 yrs.

 

That's some serious overpayment for a third line center IMO. How do you upgrade the top-six by paying Filppula that to play third line minutes? You are basically banking on leaps in development from Nyquist, Tatar and Brunner right away. 

 

I would rather have Andersson there or ideally a healthy Helm and then go after some size at wing, which the team needs desperately.

Making up your own rules is not a source. TSN, sportsnet, cbc have All reported that Flip's agent is seeking in the 5 mil range. These guys are reputable sources. His agent can use Grabovski as a comparison. He makes 5.5 mil a season. Just because something is rumoured does not mean it isn't true. For example Dekeyser was rumoured to be signing with Detroit. Was it a fact that he would sign there? No. But he did. Where there is smoke there is fire. All indications are that Flip will be asking for 5 mil a season. Connect the dots here.If Flip wanted only 4 mil a season, wouldn't Kenny have signed him by now? This indicates Flip is going for the 5 mil a season his agent believes he can get. Could he decide on July 5 to accept less and 're-sign with the Wings? Sure. Rumours are all we have right now. I think you only play the Facts Game so you can tell anyone they are wrong at all times. I think it is pretty spineless to be honest.

 Flip will sign with the Ducks and centre Selanne or he will no doubt centre Hudler in the fiery abyss knows as Calgary.  He will not be a Wing next year at anything over 4 mil, whereas I would not pay him more than 3.  He has far from earned a raise for 1 year of reached potential and 4 of meh.

I agree with all of this Filpulla talk and it just makes me hate Holland more for not trading Fill for a draft pick when he had the chance!

That draft pick able to pass the puck to Nyquist for the overtime winner in game 2 vs Ducks?

 

That draft pick able to score the series winner in game 7 vs Ducks?

 

I'm all for letting Filpulla walk if it comes to that, but I'm glad we had him for this playoff run. The Wings may have fell short, but the experience of being a goal short of the confernece finals trumps the value of an uncertain draft pick IMO.

I'm done with Filppula. He's 29, no longer a "prospect" and on the downside of his most productive years. His playoff was horrible, he was a shadow. Time for an upgrade. Don't throw stats at me because I've just lost all faith or interest in him as a Red Wing. See ya.

I can totally see holland trading his rights away for a 6th or 7th rounder if he stays firm on his 5 million demands.

Sure he was great on a couple if plays and we had a great playoff run I will always remember. My point is that maybe we could have gotten a first rounder for Fill that could have turned out to
Be a super star down the road. It's all speculation either way.
