Very happy of the new additions, Dissapointed in both Cleary (don't want him back) & Brunner (did want him back).  Maybe Kenny takes that salary & gets one guy on the tough side with some offence,  Is there another 4 to 4.5 mil guy left that fits tat?

I'mf****** ecstatic. Flip is overrated. If we manage to get Cleary, cool, he's a warrior. Will I miss Brunner? Not as much as I'll love Tatar and Nyquist.

Exactly. Brunner needs a good playmaker. Tatar and Nyquist are developing into the kind of players that make Brunner type guys expendable.

The Wings are in a good position cap-wise going forward ... that's a good thing.

I do agree with this. But tell me what good can come from it? Its doesn't matter if we got cap space when we sign junk.

In a word, No. I'll leave it at that. And no one can convince me otherwise.

I agree.  We need a third man after today.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Why would any one who is a Wings fan be happy today after taking two of the top ten free agents today. Now with that said we still need a top 2 Defenseman bad. The wings are going to be a puck position team again and fun to watch this year

Sammy cola and I'm a tootoo fan but some say he is. Alfie is at this point in his career. And Weiss is given the composition of our team. If we didn't have 68 guys like him all ready? Sure he is a good signing. But he isn't what we NEEDED.

I pray you're right. The dump and chase game doesn't suit us.

Because we do so much of that! passing on Ryan for example. Nyquist and tatar will be lucky to score as many goals per season COMBINED as what Ryan does. he is a proven 30-35 goal per year guy.
 
Vinny LeCav to expensive. Signs with Philly for 4.5 million per year. Weiss sign with us for 4.9 million per year. over the last 4 years Vinny has produced 205 points in the regular season and Weiss produced 170. We are paying more money for LESS PRODUCTION!
 
Alfie-signs for 5.5 million. Clarkson signs for 5.2 million. Who is the better bet to score 30 goals in 2013/14? How about 14/15? 15/16? Again, more money for less production!
 
But next year we have a ton of money available. True. To spend on what? more over 35 forwards? That is our recent history. Pass on the big names-the few that make it and blow our money on nothing.


Willing to bet Weiss outperforms Vinny next year.

Ericcson and Quiency are both UFA's after next season, so an upgrade may be possible then. BRUNNER SIGN BRUNNER, PLEASE KENNY, I'LL NEVER SPEAK ILL OF YOU EVER AGAIN.

 

"Willing to bet Weiss outperforms Vinny next year."

 

Bet you $20 Vincent racks up more points per game than Weiss next season.

Cause we don't have the forwards for it. But it would suit our d nicely.

Do you plan to ever live up to any of these bets? Here's what we have so far:

 

Stop ripping Flippula. I will bet ANYONE $20 Flipulla has a career year next season.

 

Bet you $20 Vincent racks up more points per game than Weiss next season.

 

He sure does deserve a spot on the roster, but Brunner will be a 30-40 goal scorer a year, I will bet ANYONE $20.

 

Good deal, Columbus is a contender. I'll bet anyone $20 they win the cup in the next 5 years.

 

I will bet ANYONE on here $20 that Philly will win the cup before the Wings do.

 

I'm beginning to suspect that this is a gimmick...

So the team essentially looks like this...

 

Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Alfredsson
Franzen - Weiss - ??????????

??????? - Helm - ??????????

??????? - Andersson - ??????

 

Kronwall - Ericsson

Kindl - Quincey

Smith - DeKeyser

Lashoff

 

Howard

Gustavsson

 

It's going to be fun watching who earns that last top6 spot. I think Tatar, Nyquist, Bertuzzi, and Sammy all have a legit shot at it. I see a lot of lines with Abby in the top6 but IMO that's not going to happen. I think the only reason he was with Dats and Z in the playoffs was cause all our other big bodies were hurt.

 

I also think Sammy is going to surprise people if he avoids injury. He produced with Vancouver and Florida and I don't see any reason why he can't again here if he can stay healthy.

...and still no goal scorer.  I long for a goal scorer.  You know, the kind that consistently scores goals.  Other than that, happy about Weiss and not thrilled about anything else.  I guess we'll have to see how things go, but again...goal scorer?

Who in the hell is on the FA market that is a goal scorer to you cuz i saw none?

Overall I am happy. I think Weiss is an upgrade over flip. Alfie is a low risk high reward contract. I still have faith in our young corps. I think with a preseason and a full season these 2 guys will help with the development of some our younger guys.

I thought the "junk referred to this year's additions". I get it now.
With this many excess forwards, Holland has to do something. I wouldn't mind trading depth players for picks
