The final sentence contradicts itself - they remain far apart - both are certain to be signed before training camp.

 

Far apart does not readily lend itself to certainty. 

 

Anyone have any idea what the disputed numbers are looking like? i.e. just HOW far apart they are?

 

Club not close to deals with DeKeyser, Tatar

This leaves the Red Wings with three unsigned restricted free agents. They remain far apart in talks with defenseman Danny DeKeyser and forward Tomas Tatar, but both are certain to be signed before training camp on Sept. 18.

To me it sounds like they're far apart on terms and number right now. But that the club is positive they'll work something out b4 camp

Dekeyser saw the deal Quincey got and realized he is worth at least 8m...he is double the player Quincey is.


Tatar I'm not surprised. He has a cocky attitude and frankly thinks he is better than what he is so I wonder how far off their numbers are to the wings. Is it a million or two? Couple hundred thousand?

I could be way off but I was expecting DD to get around 1.7-2m on a bridge deal, and Tatar to get around 1-1.5 tops. One thing Holland has always been pretty good at is getting our RFAs to sign cheap deals, but it is curious that they're "far apart". 

 

However, this isn't too uncommon for RFA negotiations and really there isn't much risk of losing them, maybe the Wings will have to pay a few hundred K more than they'd like but that's about it.

I wonder if Savage heard directly from Holland or the player's agents that they "are far apart".

 

Or is he just assuming that "not close" = "far apart."

 

Because "not close" could simply mean that neither side has gotten serious about getting something done because neither side is in a rush.

 

Hudler and Fedorov are the only RFAs that Holland has ever had trouble with, so I'm not overly worried.

I'm not worried. 2 months is a long time and I'm not sure they're in very intense discussions right now considering everyone's probably off on vacation.

Im pretty worried given Holland's track record as of late.

 

Would we really be surprised if two of our best young players walked?

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing. The goalie then gives up, and flops like a fish. The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

What's with you doomsday people??  Walk where? Out of the NHL?

The concern shouldn't be: do we re-sign them? The concern should be: will we destroy our relationship with them trying to lowball them. Quite frankly I bet Tatar looks at the Cleary deal and says "I'm worth double that.". And frankly, its silly for Holland to get stingy with the good players and throw wallets at the bad ones.

You don't compare UFAs with RFAs.  Cleary to Tatar and earlier mentioned was Dekeyser to Quincey.  It doesn't work like that...


On a side note....I can see the Tatar negotiations taking a while.  Tatar expects to be PAID....

Tatar doesn't really deserve much more than Sheahan at 950k. DD should be given a deal around Kindl cap hit. 


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

They'll both be re-signed, each to a reasonable deal. DeKeyser wants to be a Red Wing, didn't take the team to arbitration. Tatar is, I think, a better team guy than we give him credit for being. He doesn't seem to be the second coming of Fedorov in the ego department.

You really don't think Tatar is worth at least a million? He was one goal shy of 20 in his rookie season, despite not playing the first 10 games or so.
I would be willing to give him 1.5, or maybe 1.7-1.8 caphit spread out over a couple years.

No one on the current Wings roster save Datsyuk and Zetterberg has anywhere near the talent Fedorov had even in his later years on the Wings. Let alone in 98 when he was re-signed and pretty much guaranteed a repeat Cup win and IMHO should have won the Conn Smythe.

 

If anyone on the Wings besides those 2 say anything like "well I deserve to be paid more based on my skills" then they should be let go. It's one thing to ask for more playing time or to be out of the minors, it's another to want to be paid more and to say in publicly/in the media.

Who do people think is a good comparable for Tatar? (non-Wing)
