Great deal. could easily end up being a huge steal. Worst case scenario of Gus not reaching potential, it'll still be a solid pricetag.

Really hoping Helm continues to progress and becomes 100%, I want to see a Tatar-Helm-Nyquist line.

Can't Holland dump Bert, and Sammy down to GR to help out on cap space?

 

 Salary paid to players outside the NHL still count towards the cap but in the case of a 35+ player, there is cap relief of $100k if the player's assigned to the minors after the first year of the contract.  So sending Sammy & Bert to GR, once they clear waivers, means the Wings would be below the roster limit but still over the cap by ~$440k.

 

Edit: AT the roster limit, not below.

This is a real good deal, I'm pretty pumped about what Holland was able to do this offseason.  If only he hadn't had to dig himself out of the mess he made with last season's signings we'd be sitting real pretty right now. 


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

So happy goose is signed! That is also a steal of a cap hit. I expect big things for him this year. Also was just wondering If he was still considered a rookie and have the ability to win the Calder this year.

no, he is not considered a rookie or eligable for the calder.

 

 

To be eligible for the award, a player cannot have played any more than 25 games previously in any single season, nor have played in more than six games in each of two separate preceding seasons in any major professional league

Great price. Holland did a great job with the RFA signings, now somehow get rid of Sammy and I'll start drinking the kool aid again :hehe:

Great Deal!

 

Now....do my trade Kenny!

Gustav Nyquist ($0.950m) / Darren Helm ($2.125m) / Tomas Tatar ($0.840m)
Drew Miller ($1.350m) / Joakim Andersson ($0.733m) / Justin Abdelkader ($1.800m)
Patrick Eaves ($1.200m) / Jordin Tootoo ($1.900m) /
 

DEFENSEMEN
Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Lubomir Visnovsky ($4.750m)

Jakub Kindl ($2.400m) / Brendan Smith ($1.263m)
Brian Lashoff ($0.725m) /
\

GOALTENDERS
Jimmy Howard ($5.292m)
Jared Coreau ($0.925m)
------

SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $64,814,545; BONUSES: $3,192,500

As far as the trades go, I get the feeling well end up losing some guys for very little value. Low round picks or even cash. 

 

I dont really see that being a problem as long as its not a great player which it obviously wouldnt be.

Great signing.

 

I imagine that will be it now till training camp.  A player or two will almost certainly twang a groin then, and that will postpone the roster crunch for another day.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Emmerton will probably get sent down and maybe eaves unless an injury occurs

Agreed and even if there are no injuries, short term or otherwise, I doubt we'll see any roster moves until the very last days of the pre-season.

Don't know how we're gonna shed the cap. Aren't we about 2 mil over now?


With bonuses taken out they're under $400k over cap. If they waive or trade ant player, after the cap penalty they will be under cap.

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!

Nice. Even if Gus ends as a 4th-Line grinder the salary is still reasonable. 640k Cap hit and two players to go. I'm looking forward to see how Kenny will handle it.
