good old days?? LOL we didnt get 40 yr old washed up players and overrated injury prone guys , back in the day we got the best

The Red Wings obtained plenty of "over the hill" guys back then. Or did you forget where the "Red Wings are old" narrative came from?

Weiss has averaged 74 games a year since 02-03 and that's with the mere 17 games he played this year.

Dude need some tissues for the tears or what? Given what's available it's a good signing

thats the problem ... just because its ufa day doesnt mean we gotta sign players just for the sake of signing players , were gonna f***en regret this signing down the road 100% certain

guys who are bitching i dont understand The wings are a better team today then they were in game 7 vs Chicago

I agree, Holland has done a great job today giving Dats and Hank all the help he can. In the salary cap era he can only do so much.

I think Filppula is really going to regret this decision....

Especially when he gets Hudler on his wing lol

Now this is a good signing. I'll have to learn to love Alfie I guess.. but won't be hard to like Weiss. Good Canadian boy! :hehe:

Not sure how we sign Gus, Andersson and Smith with 2.3 milion but there must be some kind of plan in place.

There will be more than 2.3 million. The wings have trade a couple forwards after today's signings. Trade for picks = cap space

trust me we over spent its a week ufa class like you said .... waste of money and for 5 years .... ouch

4.9 is a steal in a weak FA class when teams want to overspend.

I was doubtfull of Holland going in today based on his last 5 years but hes done pretty good. Not a homerun day so far but he has made the team better. Now just get Brunner under contract and trade Sammy to SIberia or something.

Trust you? Why? You're obviously not very knowledgeable on players outside our organization like Weiss...

GREAT sign, bye bye FIl, Cleary, and Sammy... be nice to see us get brunner back, although I don't know where he'd fit... Why would we want Miller back? Honestly would have taken Brunner over him in a heartbeat. So now my question is where does Miller, Eaves, Emmerton fit into this mess? I mean, I'd take Nyquist, Andersson, and Tatar over any of those three.

Personally I was hoping for Grabovski but Weiss brings a lot to the table as well. And will be a very nice fit for our system. Nice job Kenny atta boy

I was hoping for Grabo as well, but now that Weiss is a Red Wing we should see our 2nd line/2nd pp unit really improve.

Miller may not offer much as far as goal scoring and points go, but him on the PK, gives Z and Dats a chance to rest instead of having to play in all facets of the game.

Sure in a big moment you want Z out there killing penalties.

But with Miller, Andersson, and Eaves killing Penalties the way they have, with Helm back the PK should be very strong.

And at about a million a year Miller makes sense to me. Not the most important signing but a very good one and cheap nonetheless!

ya when that happens everyone here will change there story and pretend they were never 100% certain on it .... will weiss get pts on detroit? yes ... not hard when you play with datsyuk zetterberg etc , its like rob brown getting 137 points with mario lemieux .... doesnt make you a great player, i just think hes overrated and for 5 years is WAY TOO LONG ... i could of lived with 2 yrs but 5 ouch

well you asked me earlier and i told you , not much out there this year

whats our top 6??? zetterberg datsyuk weiss alfredsson franzen and who? chances are bertuzzi or some other veteran , which means the kids still play at the bottom

Didn't Weiss wear #9 in FLA? We all know that number is out of the question here, wonder what he'll choose?

115, but who worries about facts, right. Contrarian overreaction is the better way to go.
