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

That's what Tatar is there for

Tatar-helm-nyq = shot-speed-hands :P

 

Ha, reminds me of the supergroup Rod Stewart, Elton John and Freddie Mercury were going to form - Hair, Nose and Teeth was the planned name :lol:


"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

I like the signing and that of Andersson, and I'm generally a Ken Holland supporter, however, these weren't the result of any master negotiating. Andersson and Nyquist had few (no) options but to basically take what was offered. I'm taking a wait and see approach to see how the roster bloat is remedied.

My only issue with Nyquist is the #14.

Even if we trade Tootoo, Eaves, and Emmerton we're still over the cap

Ken has to do something with Sammy or possibly start the youngens in the minors or something

$3.01 mil is bonus money the can be deferred to next season. Moving any 2 players in trade/waiving Eaves and/or Emmerton gets them below 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!

Yeah I'm wrong. Capgeek wasn't working correctly on my phone.

Trading eaves and toots should work

Alfredssons bonus can be applied to next season?

Yes, Aflie's bonus can & most likely will be applied to the 2014-15 season.  If all bonuses are deferred, the Wings actually sit at roughly $640k over the cap ceiling at the moment so just trading Tootoo or Eaves alone would get them back under.  They have to get rid of 2 players to get back to the 23 man roster limit though, not to just get under the cap.
