I'm happy about this signing, solid defenders are hard to find these days. I just hope the cap hut isn't too bad.

So a $1M raise.  I can live with that, he's been solid for us.  Just wish he played with that snarl he started the season with.

why is my first reaction in the last 5 years every time the Wings sign somebody.....that they overpaid. I don't claim to be an expert i just think that in general we overpay for middle talent yet can't land big talent


My wish: A healthy roster

I'll take it.  He's really stepped up when we've needed it most.  4.25 is appropriate for both sides.

I like this deal a lot. Its not for too long like a couple guys we got. And the cap hit is about right. It might even be less tbenn what he can get on the open market....def our best defender.

I wished I could be picked last for something, where 290 other people get picked first, and then eventually turn that into a 25.5M pay day.

 

Nice job Big Rig!!

I'm happy with this. If he'd have hit the free agent market who knows what the Red Wings might have had to play a replacement for what they already had. He's improved greatly with time, he's solid, and the cap hit isn't bad.

 

Nice!

His last contract he was a #4 dman now he's a #2 a one million raise for a guy that has stepped up his game over the last 3 years is more than reasonable.

I was expecting way more. That's a really awesome value.

I honestly think E will just get better, he's become quite dependable and solid out there. Happy with this signing!

I wish LGW of three years ago could see this thread, and I wish I could see their shock at how much we are praising their whipping boy.

For the increase in his level of play, and the expected raise in the cap, this deal is a steal.

Expected one Million more. This is a steal in my opinion. Great signing and good to have Big Rig around for the next six years.

I was one of the biggest defenders of Ericsson back then but honestly he's even exceeded my expectations. 

 

I figured his top end would be a solid middle pairing guy.  And even that would've been a great return on their asset by the Red Wings given he's a dead last draft pick. 

 

E has stepped up his physical game in front of the net, he's got the great first pass (including the occasional Rafalski long bombs), and most importantly he's become very poised in the defensive end.

Though I would never ever dream of it, and though it would be completely against Holland's MO, this is a very trade-able contract if Sproul, Oullett, Backman, Jensen, or someone else really start to push hard and saturate the Wings D.
