I disagree wholeheartedly. At the time it was a decision based on panic. Holland missed out on Suter and Parise and just grabbed whatever scrap he could. Then Sammy was coming off a year that he couldn't stay healthy and had health concerns still when signed. What happens? He plays only 4 games all year due to multiple injuries and then uses those injuries to block a buyout. Nothing about the the Sammy acquisition could be considered good. Both of Hollands panic signings that off-season (TooToo and Sammy) have no role with this team. Bad management there. 


Fair enough: we disagree.

His role is to take some of the heat off Smith, Kindl and Quincey.

I will say this: he's better than Dan Cleary. He's a decent bottom-6 offensive option at this point. However, not great. Yes, he put up 30 in Vancouver.

Playing with the Sedins.

He could have a role with this team but he just doesn't play it. He's not producing a whole lot despite being somewhat healthy this year (knock on wood). He's not close to the biggest of our problems, but he certainly isn't a large part of the solution, either.

Agreed.

His role is to keep a fighter off this team.

Wakes up and walks to mailbox - picks up cheque and deposits in bank - takes a s*** - stands around on the ice - goes home - sleeps.


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

I thought his role was to replace Cleary's "vet status" when we weren't going to resign him. Now I'm just lost amongst the crowd on this issue.

He actually is one of the biggest of our problems. Not playingwise, he is pretty decent  so far this year in my opinion. And I would be glad to have him if his cap-hit was around 1.5 Mill. But 3 Mil for a 4th-liner is way to much. He was planned to play in the Top6 with it and thats where the problem with him lies right now.

He has no role.

 

It was another one of Holland's dumb recent moves.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Samuelsson's role?

The most infuriating thing about this team is that we have players that can only be defended by stating that they aren't quite as terrible as other players on the team.

His role is veteran leadership, cannon of a shot from the point and brings that well known knowledge of the knowing the Wings system.

 

Yeah right. 

 

Having said that if he scored more he'd be a bit more useful. But as it is Sammy is way overpaid for someone else who could be brought in who is younger, tougher, faster, cheaper and probably produce more.

 

Tell us something we don't know already I know.
