We will get Nielsen who is good but won't trade for a d-man and be the exact same team as last year. AA is here for a reason to replace him cause he's cheaper and way better. I hate Darren helm in the top 6 it's so damn useless but I know he will be there. Pathetic. Given up on holland at this point

Honestly I'd rather have Helm back than the majority of the junk that's out there right now about to get bloated contracts. So if this keeps him from signing Backes or Lucic or someone like that to a 5-7 year deal this is ok with me.

Just funny how much he stressed change was coming, then he brings back everyone who was on the team last year except Datsyuk.

Backes and Lucic brings something that we don't have and Helm doesn't bring a s***.

The only rationale I can think of is he sees the center position as being very weak this year and the winger position very strong so sign helm for much cheaper than Nielsen and go after a couple wingers. Move Larkin to center and put Erikkson and Okposo on this team. Then trade for fowler.

What prolly happens though is he signs Hudler and tries to get Samuelsson out of retirement.

What? More PK time? If they could convince one of them to take a 2-3 year deal then fine but that's not what's happening. They're both slow as hell.

Helm is supposed to center which line?!

Why Erikkson, he's one hit of becoming Franzen 2.0?!

Why trade assets (which we don't have so many) for Fowler?
