Kenny is 3 for 3 in signing our guys to contracts with good value.

 

Would love to 1.sign another RFA or two signed this weekend; 2.trade Cola at the draft; 3.Buy out Sammy; 4.Get Mantha

 

That would be a decent weekend.

If we don't sign another defenseman FA, he will be in our top 4 next year. 

 

Like this deal.  :thumbup:

....WAY too much of a raise....oh well. Just keep Nickle and diming the cap away... Lets give Cleary $3M...

Oh good.

 

Kindl will be a bargain throughout the length of this entire deal. One of the most improved players on the team this past season.

There had to be someone who didn't like the deal

 

2.4 might be a hair too much right now, but in a year or 2 it will be considered a great deal for the Wings.

Agreed. And considering the higher deal Ericsson got at the same age, and what he's become now, I think it's a good deal for Kindl who I think has improved quicker at this point in comparison.

I don't like this deal and find it overpayment.

 

Sorry don't like it.

Good deal that should become a great deal. Kindl is only 26, so his best years are yet to come.

 

Some D-men really take a long time to develop, he's certainly one of them. I think he might actually start peaking around 29, just in time for a new contract lol.

Solid deal.  I like this.  He improved a great deal over the season and will definitely be in our top 4 next season.

Seems like Kindl has improved faster than Ericsson did, at least once he hit the NHL. I like this signing.

This is the internet, your opinion is factually incorrect.  :tounge:

 

Personally, I was expecting 2.25M, so it's not too bad an overpayment. Kindl played like he deserved it this year, hopefully he lives up to it and beyond the way Howard did after his signing.

Kindl finally proved himself this year. Imo, it was a make it or break it year for him and he made the most of it. I'm all for him now and he definitely deserves a raise.. hope he keeps it up.

Next year Kindl will be second in defense scoring on this team, just behind Kronwall.  And it will be closer than anyone thinks.  He's made the 2nd PP his own, and had a knack for timely production.  He's also improved in in zone coverage tremendously.  He's still got some work to do on his first pass, but otherwise he's really made strides.  I have no idea what's not to like about that for 2.4 million. 

 

He probably just needs to punch someone and the naysayers will get on board.

Kuba, Smith, DeKeyser, and Emdog are my favorite guys.

Tatar, Nyquist, Andersson, and Dats are my 2nd favorite.

I'm not trying to talk you out of anything, and I don't want to argue.  But I really, really, want to know what you like about Smith.  You can message me if you want so that you don't have to argue with anyone else.  But I've got to know why he's on that list.

I was skeptical if Kindl would ever "turn out", but as others have already said - he's become a pretty solid bottom pairing Dman this past shortened season, and I'm hoping he'll continue to improve.

 

Good signing :thumbup:
