Per Bob McKenzie:

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie 2m

On bright side, D Jonathan Ericsson on verge of signing extension with DET. Guessing 4 or 5 yrs, somewhere in $4M range, maybe touch higher.

 

I hope so. E has developed very well.

Per Bob Mckenzie's twitter supposedly 4 or 5 yr deal in the 4 million dollar range.  Thoughts?  Personally I have been impressed with Ericsson's improvement the last couple seasons.

I like e. He is one of my favorite. But if sproul and oullete are ready to be our third pair e and Quincey should both be gone.


Cause here in a few years we may have a logjam at defense unless they don't want to keep smith kindl dekeyser and/or lash off.

Keeping kindl over e is one of the worst ideas I've ever heard.

It all depends on how much. Kind at what 1.5m. Or e at 4?. Keep kind then we put money into forwards for short term 2-4 years while our d is cheap. But this only works if smith steps up and dekeyser can stay healthy and play like he can and if Sproul and oullete are ready.

Which IMO they prolly are not for another year yet but who knows.

I agree that Ouellet and Sproul need to be accounted for in 1-2 years time on defence, but Quincey will certainly be gone. And when the boys are ready Lashoff will go back to being a solid #7. As far as E's contract, he's currently at 3.25, if his raise is say 4.2, then that's great for us with the cap going up. He's a solid top 4 guy who can play 20mins, PP/PK, fight and hit when he feels like it too.

Quincey will be gone, lashoff is expendable, and kindl could be traded pretty easily.
Ericsson would get $5m on the market, hes a solid number 2/3withwith a big body and a shortage of good d men.
Even if we decide to trade him, if his cap hit is right around 4m we shouldn't have a problem, ESPECIALLY if the cap raises.
These options account for the young guys, as well as give them more time to get ready.

O I completely agree he is one of my favorite players because of all that.

The other thing I was thinking is if the long term plan could be

Kronwall e
Smith dekeyser
Sproul oullete

1-2 maybe 3 years down the road...


Either way unlike some people I think were sitting pretty on defense(other than Quincey).

Holland will give him 5mill for being a lifelong wing - just like he went soft re-signing clearly (edit: of course clears wasn't a lifelong wing).

LOL. You guys think Quincey ​won’t be re-signed. You all know Kenny’s going to re-sign him. Probably a 2-3 year deal. FML.

I always figured a million dollar raise was inevitable. Hoping 4 or 5 years at 4.25.

 

Ahh, I remember the tender old days when we were all (myself included, if not especially) scratching our heads when Holland not only DIDN'T sever ties with Ericsson, but gave him over 3 million! (Most of us were reluctantly willing to accepting him at 1.5m or so, but never dreamed he would get over 3m, let alone be WORTH 3m).

 

Would be glad to have him back as a Wing for a while. He is a solid top 4 guy who is quite capable defensively.

I'm actually really liking Ericsson right now, if only because he hasn't been around for this whole losing streak. But no, it's more than that. He's been really good for us. I really have nothing negative to say about him.

 

I think McKenzie's report sounds like a very reasonable deal for a solid #2, which is exactly what Ericsson has become and will probably be for the next several seasons. We just have to hope and pray he doesn't regress.

If it's somewhere in the reported ballpark sure, Ericcson had really improved his game and could be a great mentor for Danny K

I always liked him.  The money certainly sounds reasonable.  Keep him around, please.


Money on the board:  Current total: $6

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

He's not the problem on our defense. I like this move.

If he gets less than 5 million he'll be a steal.
