i love ericsson  hes the biggest body we got in the back and im all up for keeping him but if i recall our last negotiations with him didnt go so well and now with what happened with filppula  i can easily see ericsson demanding 5+ per year and as much as i like him i dont believe hes worth it

 

Now recent reports on tsn are saying craig mctavish would gladly give away all his picks if he can fill up his roster with bodies, im thinking if the oilers can get ericsson to an extention maybe we can get the 7th overall pick?? thoughts?

 

maybe we can sign ference or a cheap ufa and our d would could look like ...

 

kronwall quincey

 

dekeyser kindl

 

smith ference

 

lashoff

 

and we got ouellet sproul backman marchenko jensen almquist coming up

 

that being said if we can get ericsson to sign for like 4.25 per year for 5 yrs id do it but i think he will ask for more than kronwall

No.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

The Wings will have dmen available to trade but their names are Colaiacovo & Lashoff.  Ericsson's name will not be on that list.

Quincey on the top pairing scares the hell out of me.

id  rather we get rid of quincey+ extention + something like tatar for the 7th pick but im thinking longterm ... i really think ericsson will give us problems when its time to renegotiate a deal ... i really hope im wrong

We'll get something for Flip's rights and Ericsson has gotten much better the past few years, if he continues that trend he might even be worth 5+

As always: Depends. How much does E think he is worth vs how much do we think he is worth vs how much do others think he is worth? He is 29 and in his last year. If he wants 5+ million per year, I really don't see it. He is a good solid Dman, that belongs on the second pair. He is a 3/4 not a 1/2. But 5+ million is 1/2 money. He already makes 3.25 million so wanting 5 million isn't that big of a jump.

But the part we don't know is, what could we get for E? We have 8 Dman with several more on the way. Moving 1 piece will happen. But Cola and Q will not bring back much in return. E on the other hand could. You trade from strengths to fill weaknesses. D is our strength. 8th last year in goals allowed. But 24th IIRC in goals scored.

Kindl, E, Kronners, and DeKeyser are our only solid D. None of them are going anywhere

Who would have thought years ago that we'd all be saying "NO" to trading Ericsson.    :confused: 

 

That's partly from him improving as a defensive defenseman, and partly from Holland not adding much else to our blueline.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

We just spent 5 years grooming him into a great #2. Now trade him? Come on.

Try 1 year.  Ericsson's current contract expires after the 2013-14 season.

I'm confident he'll re-sign.  He's not one of those shifty, disloyal Finns.   :brow:

Trading Ericsson would put a massive hole into our lineup and undo years of scouting and developmental work, and we would be getting in return a player with no guarantee that he would even crack the lineup, let alone benefit the Wings. At this point the scouting and development which made Ericsson into the player he is today would have to start over on whomever we drafted with the pick.

Iffity schmiffity. You sound a bit like my mother who makes up these scenarios in her head and starts worrying about them in advance. You can start worrying when Ericsson actually demands the $5M+/year contract.
