I think we all can agree that Clarkson is not worth 42 mil over 7 years but that is going to be his pricetag and the guy will get it from some team and I don't blame him one bit for that, it is his payday probably the last one in his career so he does need to cash in. The Wings fanbase has always talked about how cool it would be to get a Lucic type of player, well here we have one and most people are moaning over having to overpay in order to get him, the so called best GM in hockey is - once again - lowballing him... why is it so hard for some to understand where the frustration is coming from? Don't want to sign Clarkson or Horton fine than find another way to really improve this team (meh players aren't improvement they are replacements at best). Waiting for next years ufa class year after year, is like not buying or upgrading a PC because in 1 year there will be better hardware...it just doesn't work t hat way. So let us assume the Wings don't get Clarkson or Horton which of the remaining UFAs is going to help this team? Jagr, Iginala - nope 0 goals in the playoffs. Ryder, Ribiero (a guy with a very questionable attitude?) stay away please. Overpaying for Yandle? yeah great giving up assets is way better than overpaying with $ for some highly thought after UFAs. Comparing the new UFA prices to the ones before the lockout doesn't work also, with Getzlaf and Perry getting their new paydays as stars players a tier below them are going to command a bit less but not a lot...this is just the reality nowadays.

I've come to the conclusion that if we're ever gonna see a guy/s who can punch faces, and score goals - Holland will have to draft them...

 

Problem is - Holland tends to draft guys who don't play that style.

I like McKee, but he def doesnt have the goalscoring part lol. We have plenty of size on our defense, its up front where it is lacking.

It's nice to see - however what are his, or Callahan's chances of making it to the Motor City?

well he will be playing college hockey next year (so no fights) and he will be working on his game a lot more, Babs loves the kid, his only problem is hee takes a lot of penalties, so going to college hockey should fix that and we should see him in 2-3 years

While he's not worth $5 million per season, I wouldn't say he's garbage. He's proven to be a solid net presence, and if he continues to produce the way he has recently, I consider him a power forward.

It isn't really a question of would we like to have him, it's do we want to pay him $6 million a year for 7 years.

 

Do people not understand how bad a cap hit that is for a player like Clarkson. If you paid him, he'd be making basically the same money as Zetterberg ... does that seem logical, to anyone?

As I statistically laid out in another thread, Clarkson is very overrated and not at all worth the sum he is asking. Do your own research instead of buying right into the hype, people.

In other news, I hate foruming on a phone.

Really?  Those one or two seasons are better than our current 4th liners have ever had.


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

Our fourth liners aren't asking for 42 million.

Yeah, but I'm saying that he's not just some 4th liner with a few good seasons. He's proven he's better and deserves a pay increase.    

 

I wouldn't give him 42 million, though.
