Nice one Armstrong way to show respect and appreciation for your best player, who's potential is only limited by the sky.

If we didn't have such a problem with roster space as it is... I'd say Offer Sheet.  (Not that Kenny Holland ever would)

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

He is an RFA, can the WIngs trade for his rights?

Or does it have to be an offer sheet?

 

Not that the Wings could fit him under the cap, but I would easily trade Ericsson and Kindl or Quincey just for the rights to try and work out a deal with him, if possible.

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

Wow, time for Kenny to get to work! But it will be pricey, forget about Nyquists and whatever other B grade prospect you can think of, it is the players you dont want to give up that the Blues actually want!

Yes an RFAs rights can be traded.  For an example see Kessel, Phil.  If Kenny were to try to pull off getting him, I think there would be a better chance it would be in the form of a trade & not an offer sheet.  Depending on what was sent back to St Louis, there could be a possibility of fitting him under the cap too.

"...he knows the offer sheet system in the NHL is a toothless joke." 

 

couldn't have said it much better :P  no doubt in my mind he'll be a blue for life (or damn near close) but holy s*** if the wings could land this guy!

 

....too bad it'd take a miricle.

Problem is not only rooster space but much more cap limit. We are already over it and Pietroangelo will demand something around and above 4 Mil. . Freeing that will be very hard.

Pietrangelo isn't going anywhere. This smells like the Subban situation last year....

I just wonder if Kenny could talk them into taking Sammy's contract on too if he blew them away with an offer.

not enough space for roosters on this team :bye:

 

really tho, he would command a lot more than 4 mill. i'd say at least 7.

and the space (both cap and roster) would have to be subtracted via a trade for him.

 

it's a long shot and 99.9% chance it doesn't happen.. but a guy can dream right?

if only.. i don't know if we have what it takes to make that kind of an offer. i don't know if any team does haha

 The Wings are a little over $600k above the cap right now & can exceed it by another ~$5.8m from now until the end of camp.  The $4m+ for Pietrangelo would be offset too by the fact that the Blues would want current NHL talent in return.  What if in a trade, Kenny includes Franzen & Ericsson.  That's $7.2m off the cap right there.

 

Edit:  Not that we'll ever find out, but this thread is making me really curious about the talks between Kenny & David Poile about Shea Weber last offseason.  Do wonder what the offer Kenny made was & what Nashville wanted in return.

Very few GMs ever would. There are a whopping four GMs in the league today who have served an offer sheet in their career, and only eight have been given in the past 15 years.

Total non story if someone is low-ballwing and disrespecting the best player on a stacked team like this, offer sheet him. If I were Pietrangelo I'd tell Armstrong to go f...himself and that I'll sign an offer-sheet he shouldn't even think about matching it, because it would call my agent to tell in clear words that I want out.

I'd give up Smith and Sproul in a deal for Pietrangelo, easy. One of Tatar or Nyquist too, not that it'd ever happen unfortunately, but he'd be well worth it.
