Not sure if this has been brought up yet, but today TSN is reporting that the Wings have legit interest in Tyler Bozak. IMO Weiss would be the better option to replace Fil. Bozak is a pretty solid player don't get me wrong. But really only seemed to shine on a line with Kessel and Lupul. I would even say Ribeiro before Bozak

Lebrun reported that Bozak is asking for 8years and a bit under 5 m annually from the Leafs, this would be a huge mistake and an incredible overpayment. I'd rather have Weiss then but Bozak would still be better than Ribiero the guy just is an idiot.

It is wierd isn't it? I know other teams are going to sign the big dogs but I can't help looking forward to this day, so much going on and TSN as always will be doing a fantastic job breaking down the newest trades and what not.

Also I am very interested to see where Clarkson and Horton are going to land.

I still think Iginla is a better option then Cleary. Paired with a good passer and Iggy could still put up big numbers. Sammy needs to go. Weiss at 5m scares me 


Huge trade in the works. Boston and Dallas close on a deal sending Tyler Seguin to Stars for Loui Eriksson. Other parts involved as well.

So Loui will be in Boston now....great.

They're already losing Horton and now Seguin? They'll be a defensive beast but they're losing out big up front.

Agreed. I think probably the most underrated player in hockey. He kills the Red Wings too.

Daniel Alfredsson believed to be mulling over final options, including Cup contenders. Bos, Det and of course, Sens vying for his services

Dreger says Alfredsson is mulling over his options. Detroit and Boston still very much in the mix with the Sens, of course.

 

And nevermind, again.

Wow I didn't even know we had interest in Alfredsson. I'm definitely torn on bringing him in. I mean yes he is still an effective player in this league. But we all know how ancient the guy is. Who knows if his body will even hold up for another (82 game) season. Seems too risky when there are younger options out there.

Looking at this list of players make me wish for Holland to actually stay put. Weiss is alright but nothing to get excited about, the others are players I really dont want to come here! I'm fine with Quincey.

After reading this thread it seems Holland is doing a lot of reaching out to players but he is not sure how to grab them.

You can't forcibly "grab" a player.  Players make choices.

 

What I take from this thread is that Holland is exploring many options in the FA market, which is exactly what a good GM should do.

In other news, according to Jim Matheson's Twitter, Weiss is looking for 6M/yr.

I don't see us signing Weiss if he wants that much. If we don't get another center, we'll likely not be able to play Z and Dats together often and our centers would be Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Helm, and Andersson...if Helm can play.

Seriously?? I really hope that's not true. If so, Weiss can go sign with someone else. 6M per year is outrageous
