Here's a question for our cap/CBA experts. What happens if the Wings can't shed some salary before the season begins?

Given the number of UFAs out there that are as good as what we want to cast off, and they would cost only their salary nothing back in trade. This might actually happen?

We are not above cap, and therefor do not currently have to worry about that. Philly however is in "trouble"

Indeed. And when that happens (and it will for sure), we will absolutely have to shed some $$

Not signing our RFA isn't an option. We are over the cap and have been in need of a trade for some time. Beginning to think its outside Holland's skillset.

Go ahead Ken prove me wrong...please...

I'm not sure skill sets has anything to do with it. With viable (cheaper) options available still in the UFA pool. Why trade and give up an asset, even a 7th rounder to help out another team?

Not buying out Bertuzzi was a mistake IMHO.

Wings can be 10% over the cap till the season starts. So plenty of money to sign their own Rfa players. Not buying out Bertuzzi and waiting too long with Samuelson was for sure a mistake but it happened and their is nothing the Wings can do about it now. Let's just hope the Alfredsson signing doesn't bite them in the ... Philly is really impressive they from caphell to caphell, Holmer better is hoping for a huge cap increase otherwise their offseason accompt nothing

As impressed as I am and how much I like Abdelkader, if Tuzzi is healthy, he's a better option for the top line to play with Dats and Z.  That would give Abs the chance to get back to grinding and hitting on a line that does that and Tuzzi would bring everything and more than Abdelkader on the top line.

The cap is not an issue. They have $1 mil in space now. They will get more regardless of who they dump and Nyquist and Andersson aren't going to get much money. They'll be fine.

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

This has been an outdated concept for 2 years. Bertuzzi doesnt offer us anything we need at this point.

Tuzzis a better top line option than Abby. Abs was only there because of injury

He's not. And even if he was, that isnt saying much.

Franzen, Z, Fredo, Weiss, Pavs, and Abs are the top 6 guys now. Bert is out.

You'd rather switch him for an understrength 19-year-old who has no professional experience? Even Mantha has acknowledged that he needs to get stronger and faster.

Well if he puts some weight on like he has been saying he will, yes. If not, next year works fine too

He has no experience at the pro game yet, and prospects have been ruined when rushed into the NHL.
