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

 

We are $1m over now. If Helm starts on LTIR, Emmerton goes down. I suspect Tootoo will be waived also. That'll do it.

Now if we can only sign Brunner, and say "adieu" to Sammy, and Bert.

Not going to Happen Brunner wants to much and Sammy and Bert unfortunately arnt going any where no one wants them
That's a great price glade to have him. Now we'll have to see how we get down to the final roster

It's not so much that no one wants them then it is they both have a NTC. 

 

Re-signing Bert with a NTC, signing Sammy with a NTC, overpaying for Tootoo given his term.  Holland is now paying for his mistakes in 2012.  It'll be interesting to see how the forward situation shakes out.

Time to get my jersey

Personally, I'd hold off on buying a Nyquist jersey till after this current contract ends. This is definitely a "prove it" kind of deal. And if he proves it, then buy his jersey. Otherwise, could be a little risky dropping $200+ on a player that's not quite fully proven yet.

Nice to have Nyquist signed now.

 

I'm already itching for training camp to begin...

Dude!  That's original.  I hope you still have it.  It's a conversation piece.

 

Hopefully Nyquist will be more of a classic than a conversation piece.

I love this signing. For anyone wondering it's a one way contract so chances are very good he won't be in the minors this year. Also if he plays 2 more regular season games he is no longer waiver exempt. So he either starts in grand rapids or he'll be with the wings all year

This kid has that extra step when you see him with the puck. Once he works out some of the kinks he's going to be special, and we all know it. Great signing.

Fantastic contract he really left some money on the table, hope the Wings reward him with playing time and further development. Way to go Gustav

Even the thought of Tatar - Helm - Nyquist has me beyond excited.

It would be an incredibly exciting, but unbelievably frustrating line!  Helm has hands of stone and Nyquist seems to miss the net with 9 out of 10 of his wristers.


"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

Very good signing due to the cap hit. Should be a bargain for the next two years. Let the cuts begin!


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

That's what Tatar is there for

Personally, I think Tatar has the potential to become a world class pest too.
