Dallas and Detroit pursuing Cleary. Hopefully Dallas takes him. Thanks again, Nill.


Brunner hitting market, anyone besides us expressing interest?


Ribiero deal is ridiculous overpayment. Glad we get Alfie over him. 

Reports on the Ducks being in the mix for Cleary now too


Money on the Board 2014: $5 per series, $5 per sweep, $5 per Kronwalling, $10 per Marchand Kronwalling, $1 per Zetterberg game, $1 per 2013 Calder Cup roster player goal

Dallas will be an almost entirely new team next season. Crazy. Nill doesn't waste time, does he?

I love the thought of Alfredsson for Cleary hate it if its Alfredsson for Brunner.

I can live with Alfredsson, Weiss and Brunner as our signings if that's what plays out.

Agree on the first point, Brunner signing >>> Alfredson. On the second point, the Wings don't have the space to sign all three, Wings have 3 must sign RFAs.

So other than the obvious troll post, where do you get that idea when the Wings are clearly in the mix for Weiss and Brunner?

Kenny is done, he needs to sign Smith, Nyquest and Anderson, that's at least 6 million in cap space gone. The Wings have 7.5 left after signing Alfie. Unless a trade occurs, no Weiss, no Brunner, no Flipulla.

No way they are worth 2 million together, let alone a piece.

Nill says the Stars don't want Cleary.  Well we know where the brains of the organization went.

Flip, IMO, was out of the mix a while ago.

 

Brunner wanting to test the market (Note: NOT Holland not offering him anything) and if the Wings sign someone while he makes up his mind, he is not yet the type of talent you wait around for.

 

There is plenty of room, as well as plenty of assets to trade.

 

They just won the Calder cup, other teams will want some of those prospects.

All of you call Nill the real mastermind, were you in the room when the Wings Brass made these decisions?

 

As I said in another thread:

 

Did  Nill want Brunner and Holland did not?

Did Holland want Sammy and Nill did not?

 

Because to me it seems like the org as a whole is in on all decisions, I just don't see how some of these moves are all on Holland and some are all on Nill.

 

To me it seems like people are arbitrarily assigning blame and credit!

Disagree, we have more than 7.5 after Alfie, and you are boosting the value of our RFA pool cost. We can still fit Brunner and Weiss under the cap with who we have. A trade would free

up funds to solidify the defense IMO.

Nyquist and Andersson will get something in the neighborhood of $875,000 apiece. I'd wager that Smith might get something like $1.1 mil.

They actually have 9.5 mil in space, and Smith, Nyquist, and Andersson all together will likely not cost anything more than 4 mil to retain.  That leaves enough room for Weiss, since it looks like we are battling Cap constrained St. Louis for his services.  And, with a little creativity in contracts and moves, Holland can probably make room for Brunner.

 

If they can ink Weiss, and that is a big if, the worst case scenario is that we have traded a 27 year old who has some question marks for a 30 year old proven 2nd line center and added and experienced winger for the year.  Best case, we keep Brunner.

 

But, I do agree that if Alfie is the only signing, it will be disappointing.
