Breaking News! Red Wings sign Drew Miller 1.35/year for 3 years!

Freep article.


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Great signing.  He's one of our best PKers.

Great value right there! Really happy he's staying with us.  He probably could have got a little more $$$ and 2nd line minutes on another team.

Good, cheap signing. I wouldn't have been heartbroken had he left, but it's hard to complain about that minuscule hit given his value.

While I like Miller not sure he was needed or where he is going to play. This makes about 15 forwards as of today and it has been rumored that Cleary and Brunner will be resigned. That makes 17 forwards. yes we could make a trade or buy a guy out. But there does seem to be a lot of avergae/below average guys on the roster eating up places and cap space.

There has to be something in the works as far as buyouts/trades go.

You would think. To many players at the same position.

Does anyone think that maybe Holland sort of seems like he wants to stand pat with this teams roster until he sees how we perform in the East next year? And then after that first season of analysis, decide which direction to take the team?

YES! YES! YES!

There is neither font size nor colour suitable to express my joy.

 

Great PK guy, low price, can chip in some offense, the line of Eaves, Emmy, and Drew was a very good 4th line- better than some teams' second.  If we've met our match on the top lines and are basically cancelling the other team out, these guys can get it done. 

 

I'm thrilled beyond words.  I like this guy.  I like this deal. 

Happy day.

This could possibly be, although if a great deal comes along, I'm sure he'll be in the running.  Otherwise, see where we stack up against the new competition and fill in our weak spots from there.

I get the feeling we wont be seeing Emmerton or Tootoo in a Winged Wheel next season. Not that I'd bat an eyelid about Emmerton.

 

Good signing as I thought he'd head for the FA market for sure to get a better deal.

Yeah, I don't feel like there will be very many moves this offseason.  Especially with the homegrown talent turning out so well.

 

 It would be awesome if we could go for Vanek next season though.... :ninja:
