In Topic: Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

FOX Sports Detroit said this morning the team would target Niskanen and Boyle in Free Agency.  


Tootoo probably isn't bought out because he doesn't really save them much money in doing so, but the Wings have one to use this season or lose it....   


This will be a major off season for the Wings and Kenny Holland, who is nearing the end of his contract.

Nashville is not that far away from icing a dangerous team, their goaltending and D is set they'll get a very good offensive forward in this draft and some young players are on their way.

Nashville is a mess right now, the only reason they excelled as they did at times was Trotz could make Chicken Salad out of Chicken Crap.  Their organization is a mess right now, Trotz is gone, the GM has one foot out the door and the ownership is possibly tired of paying Weber his 14 mill a year. (He gets a check for 13 mill by July, then 1 mill for his salary) Their prospects are all the grinder type (except for Forsberg and Jarnkrok)  sure they got the better end of the deal, but saying they are dangerous I don't agree with at all...

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
