Nestrasil signed for 1 year at S550,000.

Hard to go wrong with these guys at league minimum.

I still think Callahan would be a decent fourth liner...we just have too many as it is.

Well, Kenny sure has had a great off season for the Griffins.


"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

I think both Callahan and Nestrasil have to clear waivers now to play in Grand Rapids. I've been interested in seeing both of these guys on the Wings, especially Callahan. With the amount of forwards we have signed, I don't know if either one will be Red Wing property a few months from now...

I'm probably wrong on this one, but I thought that players could be placed in the AHL prior to the season without being exposed to waivers. My understanding is that the waiver period starts twelve days before the season begins. Can't Callahan and Nestrasil start down in GR, then have to deal with waivers if/when they're called up, or are they exposed regardless?

The NHL video games have my perception of this one a little skewed.

I want Callahan up in Detroit this year. He's coming off a solid year. Time for him to get his fair shot.

I agree- he has earned a chance with the Wings as the 12-13th forward.

harold has already made this request, so this will be the last one:

 

An update:

 

I know people are unhappy about the signing, but enough with the Cleary jokes in every single thread on the forum.  

 

For starters, they're usually not that funny as it gets old very fast.  Second, it makes it difficult to carry on a conversation about the actual topic. 

 

Thank you. 

 

 

 


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

I'm surprised he was signed as he seems to be too truculent for this organization I really hopes he makes the team over the useless miller clearly Anderson etc
Get me a real fourth line Kenny!

Nestrasil does NOT have to clear. The only guys that are out of exemptions are Callahan, Ferraro, Almqvist. Of course Almqvist went to Europe, so that helps out, but the other two just may be lost to waivers, especially Callahan at league minimum...we'll see what Ferraro re-ups for.

:blink: well, I guess I could be wrong...jeez! If he is another guy boxed out by useless UFA signings, why even have a 7 round draft?

Callahan will be the first jersey I've bought in awhile if he makes it. He's the good ol red blooded American hockey name I've been waiting for the wings to get!
