Knew I forgot someone. So the starting roster will probably look something like

Franzen - Datsyuk - Brunner
Cleary - Zetterberg - Sammy
Abdelkader - Helm - Betuzzi
Miller - Emmerton - Tootoo
Eaves

Kronwall - Ericsson
Kindl - Quincey
Smith - Cola

Howard
Monster


You trying to troll us? lol

That roster would induce meltdowns of epic proportions here on LGWs.

No DeKeyser, Nyquist, Andersson, Tatar, or big UFA?

The only good thing is thinking about a healthy Helm.

Seriously though, I doubt Holland, even in his most frustrating times, would do this to us.

Also, you'd have to lock up some of those kids in a basement to keep Babcock from opting to play them over guys like Cola and Tootoo, to name a couple.

Haha I kno I kno. I just figure holland is more likely to hold them down and wait for injury before he plays them full time. We do have abundance at every position

The reason why we can guess about Filppula heading out is really very simple. No cap. As of tody we have 10.6 million left to spend. RFA's Kindl, Smith, Nyquist, and Andersson will eat up at least 5 of that. That leaves 5.6 million with Brunner, Cleary, and Filppula to sign. We can either sign Filppula or Brunner and Cleary. The rumors are the later 2 will be kept. That would still be 17 forwards, 8 Dmen, and 2 G's. 4 have to be cut, bought out, traded or sent down to the minors as it is. Sorry Fil, but there is no room with the RW's. Good luck.

Seeing the name "Sammy" on that roster almost makes me sick... What about Tatar? Isn't he out of minor league options?

Holland said he would explore trades and buyouts

Andersson and Coca Cola.

Anyway, Holland has a garden that needs to be weeded.

Cleary and Sammy

5.5 million for one outlier season of offensive production and a solid defensive forward?

 

I feel bad for whoever pays Fil that. Thankfully I am quite confident it won't be the Red Wings.

I like Fil but would never consider giving him that much.  To me, he is similar to Franzen as far as the goal droughts.  I would rather see what Anderson, Nyquist, and especially Tatar can do with a full season up in the NHL.

Unless there's buyouts I'm afraid that might be the starting roster

Trying to think what team would be a good fit for Filppula?

 

Anaheim, Columbus are good mentions.

 

Don't know what teams would pay that much for a center/leftwing of his caliber?

Emdog is Flip with less minutes and worse line-mates. Bump him up and give the team more money to save for Horton.

Holland has already said several times that Nyquist and Tatar will be in the NHL next season.

 

They are out of waiver options and are unlikely to be healthy scratches night in and night out.

 

Its possible that some of our veterans might be however...if there is enough roster space to keep them.

I know. We are not used to Holland exploring for things that we need.

Yep, that's the quote I was referring to. Thanks for finding it I couldn't remember where I read it
