Wow, double pay day for Erhoff.  He gets $12M over the next 14 years from the buyout, plus he's about to get another contract which will probably pay as much, if not more, than the contract he just got bought out from.  AND he gets to go to a team of his choosing.


"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

Wow this came out of nowhere, if we don't get Niskanen Ehrhoff will be a good signing too.

 

Guy really hit the jackpot with his last contract, there will be lots of interest in his services

Things just got very interesting. Besides the RH shot Ehroff is the definition of what this team needs.

Would be great if the Wings can sign him. I don't know why anyone thinks we would also get Niskanen. There just isn't cap space and I'm sure one or the other will take an offer that isn't reasonable for the Wings.

Ehrhoff scored 33 points last year in 73 games.

 

Apparently, I'm supposed to get on my knees and blow him for that amazing accomplishment.    :rolleyes:


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Yeah, he did that on a crap team, with little to no offensive help.  I don't think anyone is saying he'll be our #1 or #2 defensemen, but a top 4 at least, and definitely an upgrade over Quincey.  We are in definite need of a right hander, so this seems like a backup move to Niskanen.  I still am holding out hope that they can bring in One of these two guys and someone like Boyle or Gilbert.... but I doubt they get more than 1 d-man.  Plus that'd leave room for a top six forward.

Just because he's not a superstar doesn't mean that he couldn't improve the overall quality of our defense quite a bit. Erhoff in and of himself is not a guy worth going crazy over on an individual level like you would a superstar, but what he'd bring to the TEAM in filling out the D would be no small thing. We're not in a position to bring in an elite player either via trade or free agency at this point. We need to make the best of the situation and bring in guys that can help get this team going in the right direction towards being a contender again. Then maybe somewhere down the line we might be able to more reasonably get our hopes up about bringing in top talent. Right now, we just need solid guys to round out a defense that still has some glaring holes in it.

One top 4 d is not going to do it. We need one more solid D. Orpik will be a nice addition along with Niskanen or Earhoff. We do have the cash to make it happen. I hope Kenny gets it done.

NHLTradeRumors reported the Kings would have room for Erhoff if they dumped regehr. I'll have a meltdown if the Kings get him too.
