Weiss is an improvement over Filppula, but I'd rather have had Lecavalier for a similar price.
Brunner is definitely an improvement over Alfredsson. Alfie is 40. Brunner is much younger. You guys are thinking short term if you'd rather have Alfie. As in "really" short term. Guy might retire after the season.
I also wanted us to get a little bigger and gritter to play against. Not sure how this accomplishes that.
I didn't think it was possible for Detroit to get smaller...
I was wrong.
No Bobby Ryan. No David Clarkson. No Nathan Horton. No Vinny Lecavalier.
I guess we'll wait and see...
Yeah, Holland doesn't seem to like big, gritty forwards. Even on the checking lines, let alone the top two lines.
I think it's important to have balance. We have too many vanilla midgets on the roster.
I guess one thing that's interesting is didn't Lecavalier sign for 5 years @ $22.5 mill? I think he's only 3 years older than Weiss, and much bigger.
Yep. I'd rather have Vinny than Weiss, for these prices.
