NHL.com put together a list of a pseudo free agent all star squad. All of our players were on it. Even our slop (Brunner, Cleary, Colo, White) isnt all that bad. We have a good team.

Still would need another team out west to balance things out then, maybe Kansas City.  All divisions would have 8 teams & Seattle and Kansas City could have a bidding war for Cleary's services to drive Kenny out of the market for him.


Money on the Board 2014: $5 per series, $5 per sweep, $5 per Kronwalling, $10 per Marchand Kronwalling, $1 per Zetterberg game, $1 per 2013 Calder Cup roster player goal

That would just give Holland an excuse to trade Datsyuk and Zetterberg to free up cap space for Cleary.

I don't see how anyone could be opposed to this move, honestly. Cleary is a warrior who busts his ass every night. We're all gonna look back in 10 years and recognize how overrated Z and Dats are and wish we would have sold the farm for Cleary. He's a slam dunk.

Surprised half those names haven't been signed yet.

That's cause most of the guys that were signed were given money as though the cap hadn't even dropped.  GM's are still handing out large amounts of money and there's none left to sign the leftovers.  Half or more of the teams are trying to shed salary including our Wings, so no one can give these guys what they're asking for. 


This offseason will determine whether Ken Holland should still be employed with the Wings organization.

 

Please put Smith on the Power Play!

Which could be a good thing. Not an easy feat shedding salary though for the Wings I agree.

A lot of familiar names on that list.

At forward, guys like Hejduk, Prospal, Lombardi, Antropov, Sullivan, Boyes, Ponikarovsky, Fedotenko, Latendresse, Morrow, Raymond, and Miettinen can provide some decent secondary offensive punch. Plenty of solid grinders still out there with guys like Steckel, Knuble, Halpern, Smithson, Kobasew, Mayers, and Begin.

On defense, guys like Lydman, Hainsey, Bergeron, Babchuk, Redden, and Whitney have offensive capabilities, although several of those guys play mediocre defensively. Also, plenty of shutdown guys still out there- guys like O'Byrne, Murray, Huskins, Fistric, Martinek, Eminger, Alberts, Vandermeer, and yes, Lilia is available, although he is a shadow of his former self.

Add in Brunner and Cleary and there are a lot of interesting names still out there.

Lilja is a shadow of his former self? It was possible for him to be worse?

Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

I'm thinking the Panthers might be the next team looking for a new home.
