It is still 1.9 million dollars ownership would have to pay to a guy to not play in the NHL.
 
I get the frustration for Mule. I don't think he is nearly as bad as some make him out to be, however. In the end, the only issue with him is if the team is in a situation to depend on his scoring. If the top 6 is solidified, he is still a defensive forward who can put the puck in the net. As long as he plays responsible while he is cold, and we have plenty of other secondary scoring, having him around will be fine. I'd love to see him parking in front of the net on the pp. Back in 2008, doing that was what set him on fire scoring-wise to begin with. Maybe it is just a matter of going back to basics with him. Also a good way to have a role for him when his abilities do start to decline. If memory serves me right, he was more than adequate when it came to deflecting the puck in front of the net. 

 
Who does he play in place of then? Tootoo can't even crack the Griffins lineup. His only shot to play in the NHL is to play on a basement team who can use a guy like that to keep the fans entertained. Not a knock on Tootoo. I like the guy. There is just nowhere for him here.


1.9m to play for OUR AHL TEAM with minimal cap hit or 1.9m to play FOR ANOTHER TEAM with no cap hit.....

He isn't getting ice time with our AHL team either. Buying him out at least gives him a chance to end up somewhere.

Franzen isn't getting bought out regardless. When are people going to realize that buying out Tootoo has nothing to do with Mule?

 

Also, Franzen is not this teams problem! He isn't out there costing the Wings games.

Actually he is. He is one of the problems. Players see that he can get paid big then slack off put in no effort and still get paid with no consequence. As someone else said THIS TEAM WILL NOT WIN A STANLEY CUP WHILE HE IS ON THE ROSTER.

God you're a clown in the future were not talking about the past. Well I guess some are since it'll be awhile before the wings return to that.

Oh yeah that fearsome power play where our point men hopelessly try for clappers from the point with absolutely nobody who can tip it in and bang it in the defenders shins 9 times out of 10

Is calling someone a clown really necessary?

Yes that one.... you remembered! ;)

Yes when what someone says is funny. Am I not allowed to laugh at what I believe to be a joke? Or if they put zero thought into something...

If you find that insulting well...I just don't know what to say to that.

I don't find it insulting, I just think it will lead to you not being taken seriously in a debate when talking to people that way.

I apologize, I didn't know that you could see the future, Hockey-damus. Please share more of your visions of the future of hockey! Does the NHL adopt rocket skates and cyborg goalie technology?!?!

Well I happen to be right more often then not when talkin about the wings.

Look back at the predictions before this season. I and maybe one or two others said the wings would finish where they did fighting for one of the last playoff spots and then doing nothing in the playoffs. Sorry for being right :(

I think DeGraa55 is probably the best person to ask about that. He's the expert on hockey player's groins.
