#2024486 Wings sign Ruslan Salei

Would be nice with a couple of third rounds for them, having all picks + extra two third rounders and an extra 5th rounder for 2011 draft.

There's still enough money to re-sign Abs, but what a logjam on this team right now. A couple players are either getting waived/traded or something. Meech is gone for sure imo, Who else?

They will go with 14-7-2 for the 23 man roster... Meech is probably gone(?)


#2024469 Selanne To Return To Ducks

Teemu Selanne signed with Anaheim at $3.25 million plus bonuses.Will Ducks sign Kariya next?. It's possible, maybe probable, not definite.


Isn't that a bit too much money?

So Selanne makes exactly 2Mil more than Modano, I know who I would pick for my team.

Did this guy get suspended for his hit on Modano?

How many suspensions does he have in his career and what for?

I think the Modano one, 10 games or so, he has also had a minor fine from the nhl.

Salei will also be hungry for a Cup since he was very close to winning one with the 2003 Ducks. Going to Game 7 and losing to the Devils had to be a tough pill to swallow. Salei's value should be even better once the playoffs start. This is Salei's last chance to win a Cup so he will be very motivated. Good job Kenny.

It makes sense now. This is his Dallas Drake type signing for this season. Guy who plays somewhat mean but will hopefully be through the roof come playoff time.

What about Lilja? I think it's time he tried out his war cry move where the goalie just dives away from the net in fear, "THIS... IS... DETROIT!!!!!!!!!"


#2024192 Cheli is back!

I love how he is keeping it real

"What he was also saying is that he likes what the Red Wing are bringing into 2010-11, including the goaltending, although he admitted he'd "like to see some better work from Jimmy Howard in the playoffs."

Too true.

as a Ducks fan, the guy is an ok stay at home d-man. his biggest flaw is he is almost a lock to get a hooking or slashing penalty in the last 5 minutes of the game if you have him out on the ice.. for some reason his brain only works for 50-55 minutes and after that he just makes dumb plays. he is tough as nails and a mean SOB on the ice, she he will give you a bit of on edge. I know Detroit didnt sign him to be a minutes eater and playing on the top 2 pairings, so you guys should be fine. anyways that is my imput after watching him here in anaheim during his tenure here

Statement from Kenny himself:

August 9, Detroit Free Press: “We were looking at the market, exploring the market for one more veteran defenseman,” general manager Ken Holland said. “Given our cap situation, we didn’t have a lot of money to commit. We waited until the middle of August and over the last week, we contacted Ruslan’s agent. Mike Babcock has had a mumber of conversations with Ruslan. Ruslan really enjoyed his time with Mike. Mike was a real big part of Ruslan’s decision to come to Detroit.”

Lidstrom - Rafalski

Kronwall - Stuart

Ericsson - Salei

And depending on how good Kindl looks in practice he would get the nod if someone gets injured... then Janik/Smith on the 2nd injury depending on whom played the greatest in Grand Rapids?

How much left to sign abdelkader for now? or do they have to make a trade/waive first?

Lidstrom-Rafalski
Kronwall-Stuart
Ericsson-Salei/Kindl/Janik/Smith

(Good bye Meechy)
(Ericsson has the 5th spot locked up right? according to kenny etc?)

Salei is probably the guy for the 6th but he will probably get injured and then Kindl/Janik/ or maybe even Smith take his spot.

Anyone know what he must achieve in order to max out that bonus? 50games+ and... ?
