GUYS. Take a breath. Let's not assume OMG WE COULD HAVE DONE THAT WHY DIDNT KENNY DO THAT?!?! Maybe KH wasn't given the option to do that. Maybe E wanted to go to the Pens.

And f*** s***sburgh.

Don't worry guys, I'm sure Holland kicked the tires on Erhoff. And that's all that counts.


He may just not have wanted to come here.

He didn't want to come here obviously, which is why he signed for 1 year on a team that is a contender every year.

Obviously he wanted to go to Pittsburgh.

 

And 3 years at 4.5 or 5 million couldn't have convinced him otherwise? 

 

Don't start making excuses yet.  My least favorite part about FA day is that in the end, when we're left holding a bag of s***, everyone tries to explain why it wouldn't have happened any other way.

That team has had no more success the last five years than our team has had.  I'm not sure why you think so.

#Oilers agree to terms with defenceman Mark Fayne on a four-year contract and winger Benoit Pouliot on a five-year contract.

I am disappointed about Ehrhoff not being a Wing, but I will live... he obviously wanted to go to Pittsburgh.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

So what is it then that Holland isnt doing? Thinking to offer that? Or thinking that's a good offer?

Fayne and Puliot to Edmonton.  Good moves.

Don't worry, if Kenny doesn't win big, I'll be the first to riot.

Don't bother. This is what I meant by my post in another thread.

 

It's the Suter situation all over again. He didn't want to play here this year, he wanted to maximize his value but somehow this is Hollands fault.

No, I don't think it could have convinced him otherwise.  Why?  Because I think he could have gotten 3 years at 4.5 or 5 million from a large number of teams.  He clearly wanted to sign with Pittsburgh, in my opinion, so that's what he did.

Wow, that's a steal for the Pens. But the Wings will have no issue giving multi-years to a 38 year old Boyle.

The point was, that just because we didn't get a guy doesn't mean that we COULDN'T get a guy.  I don't know what Ehrhoff was thinking.  But I know it's a little premature to say "he obviously wanted to go to Pittsburgh", which is speculative.  One day ago he "obviously" wanted 5 years and 5 million too.  Nothing is definite, least of all Christian Ehrhoff's "obvious" intentions.

Exactly. Figured perhaps it was his best chance to win right now. Then he can have a good year, and cash in big next time

Well I was wrong, Minnesota is out on Niskanen. I'm starting to think he might really sign here.

So tell me how Pittsburgh is a better investment than Detroit.  Since you're so sure it's about playing for a contender.  Do you not remember their last four or five HUGELY embarrassing playoff exits for Pittsburgh?  Or have I been sleeping and they made it to a Cup final since 2009?

 

If it was about playing for a contender he's have picked some place other than Detroit OR Pittsburgh, since neither team is contending lately.
