I think Kenny's blind devotion to current and former Wings is his biggest weakness by far.  It is not even always an age thing.  He has way overpaid to re-sign players of all ages.

Krupp was worse, but the fact that those are his worst mistakes in that many years speaks to how good he is.

 

The thing is, his mistakes are starting to pile up in recent years.

Bertuzzi

Cleary

Cleary over Nyquist

Colaiacovo

Ericsson's six-year extension

Franzen's lifetime contract

Howard's six-year extension

Legwand
Quincey

Samuelsson

Tootoo

Weiss (?)

 

It certainly hasn't been all bad, and I do think we're still lucky to have him at the helm. But he's been slipping.


Don't Toews me, bro!

I forgot all about Ericsson's extension.  I wouldn't put it in the same boat as the Sammy signing, but 6 years is longer than ideal. 

 

I'd add extending Kindl for 4 years to your list.  And Weiss is still TBD.

Well this stat is interesting, it does not tell the whole story and is a bit misleading (injuries). The one name on the list that is baffling is Clarkson.

I have a gut feeling David Clarkson owes Satan his soul for those years in NJ. I mean, he didn't have to look far to make a deal now did he?

Its weird, he's been really bad at signing + trading, but his performance in the draft in the same period has been exemplary, including repeatedly trading down (with success).

"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Boy do I ever hope Weiss gets healthy and has a great season next year. Good guy, good player, just a rough patch.

Weiss will be healthy next year and get 50-60 points.  I'm not worried about him one bit.  He hustled his ass off every shift and that's with a sports hernia and groin injury from day one.  You can tell the effort is there, he just needs to be healthy and get a few bounces.

Dan Cleary is an Xbox 360.  While good for a while, it's time for the new generation to take over.
