Yes, please. Hopefully something reasonable that gives them flexibility. $7.2mil in cap space remaining after the Alfredsson signing.

Yikes. I don't know if I am excited or upset.

A deal with Weiss would almost certainly mean that brunner is gone, since we signed Alfie. But it does make our team better. 

 

Z, Pav, Abby

Franzen, Weiss, Alfie

Nyquist, Helm, Tatar

Miller, Andy, Eaves/tootoo/bert

 

 

Could look alot worse.

C'mon this is the one guy I'd like to see holland get other than Vinny. Having said that - I know we won't get him as it makes too much sense. 


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

NEED, BRUNNER, CHEAP, LOW RISK, HIGH REWARD. SIGN BRUNNER. Could you imagine if we pay Sammy 3 million a season and let Brunner walk at 2.5. UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

 

"Yes, please. Hopefully something reasonable that gives them flexibility. $7.2mil in cap space remaining after the Alfredsson signing."

 

They still need to re-sign Nyquest, Anderson and Smith. The Wings have basically no cap space.

I read somewhere that he is looking for $6M a year so I sure as heck hope not.


Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

Want Brunner.... Must get Brunner.

Ugh.

Wish we could give Brunner Sammy's money and just be done with him. So much dead money on a few unproductive players.

If we can get him for $3.5m or less, fine. Otherwise, I'd rather sign Filppula.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

At the right price, and combined with the Alfredsson signing, it makes us stronger up front and gives us lineup flexibility. Could make our top 6 pretty good. Not dominant, but good.

Can't buy out sammy, face it, he's here for next year.  Hate seeing Brunner go, he was going to be a good sniper.  Weiss will dish the puck to Alfie who will dish the puck to sammy who will shoot high and wild... ok bring out the third line.
