Nice to have a different look for the top 6. Hopefully we can sign Brunner yet.

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

Kick ass.

WOW, Holland gets Weiss for less than Clarkson went for! 

 

Great signing for a 2nd line center that gets between 55 and 60 points a season!

 

And contradictory to the freak out posts, it leaves room for plenty of moves and RFA signings!

 

How much room do we have exactly? Im terrible with this stuff.

Anything over 5 would have scared me a bit. Holland pulled this one off nicely. Lets just see how he handles the extra forwards we have before we go praising him full out.


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

Nice. I don't know a lot about Weiss but seems like a good value and replacement for Flip.

Combine this signing with Alfie's and it really changes how Holland's offseason has looked.

With the way things seemed to go with the Wings regarding UFA's I was afraid he'd end up with the Blues at the last second.

I'd link you to capgeek, but every time a team makes a signing their page crashes from views.

 

With Alfredsson taking up $3.5m and Weiss' $4.9m Detroit should have $2.3m left.

I just posted this in the locked thread..was Weiss the captain in Florida? Did we just swipe 2 captains from 2 new divisional rivals?

No, Ed Jovanovski was their captain last year I believe.

Not a cap-ologist myself and unfortunately Cap Geek is on overload.

Someone else will have to help out.

 

But I think this leaves them in the neighborhood of 4 mil.

"A wise man once told me, ‘Don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who'." Jay Z, Takeover

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

Wow our top 6 just got ramped up add that to Datsyuk resigning. Also if helm is healthy our team is so much better. I don't see where Bert and Sammy fit on this team tho
