In Topic: Franzen Buyout?

08 June 2013 - 04:44 PM

I don't see why Tootoo should be bought out. He did exactly what was expected of him-play physical, drop the gloves when needed, and put up a few points.

FooFoo also hardly played the 2nd half of the season, and after his bonehead penalty vs the Ducks, he didn't see playoff ice again..

Why would you buy him out?  He only makes 3.7 something against the cap, and with that cap hit he's a tradeable asset.


the return for him would not be great, due to the length of his deal and his age

In Topic: Red Wings Sign Jordin Tootoo to 3-yr deal, $1.9M/yr

I wanted the Wings to add some grit, but Tootoo would be about at the bottom of my list.

Dirty player. Questionable defensively.

Don't forget "can't skate" , "poor puck-handler", and lacks discipline.. Jury is out on this one.....

Alexander Semin is on the verge of signing a 1-year deal with the Pittsburgh Penguins, according to a report out of Russia.

Everyone is signing with the Pens....

In Topic: The Grass Is Always Greener - Johan Franzen

Need a break down to how bad Zetterberg was to start the season. He was god-awful bad. Also Lidstrom was pretty bad at the end of the season/playoffs.

If Franzen was consistent like very few NHL players are (like Crosby), would Franzen's cap hit be under $4 million? I don't think so.

In essence, Franzen is a bargain right now and will be extremely difficult to replace his offense for under $4 million per year. I would only consider trading Franzen if it's for a younger, tougher, more proven offensive power forward (NOT CHRIS STEWART OR PENNER TYPE GUY)

Lidstrom had a reason for his level of play, its called he took a puck off the inside of the foot...
