I'd put $50 down right now that says we do

 

I'll put $50 down right now that we make it and get knocked out of the first round again.

As long as there's real proof that we are a contender, no one's going to come here which I don't blame them.

I'm a fan of Matt Martin. It would be great to have a guy like that, even if we have a dismal season, at least he punches people in the face. That's something to cheer about.

 

Well that's something I'd definitely cheer for!

Actually there was lots of interest in helm and he never hit free agency. Apparently he took a discount. Should do your research before posting. Shouldn't of signed helm but he was likely to sign elsewhere if we didn't

 

Who cares if he signed elsewhere for more money.

Hope this won't turn into another Weiss.

 

It probably will.  Holland is a piss poor GM.

I think we have to acknowledge that no one wants to live in Detroit. I certainly wouldn't. Boston is a great city.

 

No one lives in Detroit.

Looks like David Backes going to market. STL took a run at re-signing him this morning. BOS significant interest in Backes.

 

 

C'mon Holland!

I recall that the Wings were hard after him when he was last a UFA, what 2 years ago and fan base was so disappointed that we didn't get him  ... how the mighty have fallen.  

 

I don't know who you're talking about but why would we want James "Detroit doesn't pay fair market value" Wizniewski?

$6-7 million for Backes is too much. Would rather pay Okposo 7 million and upgrade Larkin to his center.

 

Too bad we want him, right BoS?
