Niskanen is going to get a 7 year deal north of 42 million. Are you guys ok with that?
I'd be a lot more comfortable with 7 at 35 million. In a different offseason, he'd get no more than that. Not to mention that more Dmen are hitting the market so there's not quite as much supply and demand, even if he is the best RH Dman on the market right now. I'd offer Boyle 2 years at 7.5 mil and wait for Sproul to QB our PP.
Exactly. Same as Boyle. 2 year deals for Greene and Boyle would help stabalize the D until the young guys are ready.
If Holland goes the FA route, I would much rather he do this than sign Niskanen to a long term deal. We need to have roster felxibility. Marchenko, Backman, Ouellet, and Sproul could all be legit NHLers in 2 years.
I agree. I want to see 1 year stop gap contracts instead of 2 like Colo and Sammy. The only long term contract I would like to see in the offseason would be Moulson for 5 years max.
If Franzen wants to play in a hockey market that won't rag on him for disappearing for stretches where he can do his own thing on his own time, then please offer him in a trade to Florida for Nick Bjugstad.
There's the link to the Memorial Cup site with all games and timings.
Wings have Anthony Mantha and Tyler Bertuzzi there. I don't believe any other players are Wings prospects, but the tournament should be awesome and Mantha should be showcased heavily after scoring 81 goals in 81 games between regular season and playoffs this year. I honestly hope he never plays for GR.
Yes we had a whole new level of inexperience in the playoffs that we're not used to. I just think all the injuries and how many games we've had where the team appeared completely out of gas has something to do with preparation. Too many guys thinking they can get away with not putting in the hard work in the off season, practice and weight room. I don't see anybody talk about any of our guys being a beast training wise like Stamkos and other elite players
Aren't some of our guys signed up for the Gary Roberts is gonna make you a man this summer camp?
