Really starting to reek of Suters scenario.
 
Who wants to bet that is ends the same? 


Yup we are waiting to hear from the prize horse while the second tier guys get picked up. Then he goes somewhere else and we are forced to sign Quincey and Dan Cleary.

IMHO - Tatar, and Nyquist have the ability to be 30 plus goal scorers...Just gotta give them all the ice time their young bodies can handle.

 

It's why I'm indifferent to Iginla.

 

Iginla would be a guaranteed 25+ goals, though (and a RH shot, and a power forward, and an elite first-line talent). That's on top of what the others might produce, and all we'd be losing is money. Nyquist and Tatar are still largely question marks, which could be an issue because, the way our roster is set up now, we're going to need them to be big producers.

I like Matt Moulson.

 

In a vacuum I like him.  On this team I don't.  He's kinda slow, and not the toughest dude.  He can score, so that's good.  But I don't think he improves our "soft and undersized" dynamic too much.  And unless we address that, we're going to keep having trouble in the playoffs. 

 

I think he'd be a good complimentary piece on a big team who needs finesse and scoring.

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

We might be wishing we sign Quincey, and that’s sad.

 

I don’t know how it’s possible, but next year’s D could be even worse than this year’s.

GREAT. So Nisky has the same agent as Brunner and Suter?! FML.

 

Was just gonna say. Is it the same guy? It is, right?

The Sabres have added $8.15 million to salary cap so far, leaving them $11.85 million from cap floor. Still some work, but much easier now.

 

WOW!

I think he'd be a good complimentary piece on a big team who needs finesse and scoring. 

He's a work-horse though.  Where Vrbata is known for "taking games off," Moulson is not.  Additionally, he'll go to the dirty areas even though he's not a big guy.  Same size as Vrbata, and he's not soft -- for sure.  I watched enough Isles games to see that.

 

Wouldn't mind Vrbata either though.  Definitely think those guys are worth the look.

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.

Everybody needs a 7th defensemen.  That's a good piece to pick up July 1.  :confused:

I think most of that misses the original point, Alife WANTED to come here, Dekeyser WANTED to come here, and Weiss chose to come here. 

 

They were all highly sought after and all chose to come here, whether they worked out or not is irrelevant to countering the statement that UFA's don't want to go to the Wings. Some do and some don't and on a guy like Dekyser it isn't really fair to say he was a hometown move and so discount him but not discount all the other FA's choices that involve family, friends, location, climate, etc.

 

None of that is to say that I disagree with your final statement that the Wings are a tougher sell than they were 5 years ago, I agree they definitely are, but that is different that than the original assertion that UFA's don't want to go to Detroit anymore. 

 

Was Alfie highly sought after? Not trying to take anything away from him, but didn't that come out of nowhere and happen behind the scenes? Not arguing so much, just curious. That seemed like a pretty unique situation from my memory, and many suspected that it had to do with playing with a lot of Swedes before the Olympics.

 

The point I'm really concerned with was the final one about the tough sell ultimately, and I think that has much to do with the original comment. Like I said, there's exceptions, and it's not a hard and fast rule, but it's clear that we're on the outside looking in on a lot of deals these days. Hell, in many if not most of the cases it might be for the better, but it is what it is.
