@THNKenCampbell: The Detroit Red Wings have just emerged as the frontrunner in the Steven Stamkos Sweepstakes, in my opinion.

I'm sorry about all of the mean things I've said about you, Kenny. I know you're reading this. Good job, chief.

I don't usually take much stock in trade rumors, but I can't help but salivate over the thought of Trouba in the Winged Wheel... I know I've mentioned it a hundred times, but Kenny needs to be all over that. I'd also welcome Fowler, but Trouba is my number one choice...

Lmao

They have vasilevsky who's just as good and cheap , and with expansion draft coming they'll lose a goalie guaranteed

Ben bishop is as good as gone

Vasilevsky is just as good as Ben Bishop? Lmao. By what stats exactly? GAA? Save %? Wins?

Larkin isn't a top 6 center? ... Ok there

L...

Wait you think Larkin is a top 6 center? Oh boy. Ok show me all the NHL games he played top 6 center and how his numbers were from face off to possession. Do you even remotely know what you're talking about? Or are you picking out notes from a bowl and just reading random things?

I'm not a fan of giving 10 million to stamkos and his bloodclot issues and his demands to play center ....anyways Again we'll see who's right soon enough ... Like 10 days left

Lol. IF ONLY the Wings had MORE players that would demand to play center. We have zero top 6 centers. 

 

I think you just listed the primary reason why the Red Wings might throw money at Stamkos.

I disagree .... Yes hedman's contract will go up but bishop will also be off the books and they can get rid of a Callahan or others

For us to compete with the 8.5 Tampa is offering , because of the taxes I'm guessing it'll have to be 10-11 per (which I wouldn't do)

Think it's just a ploy from stamkos to try and get more money off tampa but he will be back

We'll see what happens soon enough

I don't think you entirely understand Tampa Bays situation. 

 

This year they have to re-sign Killorn, Kucherov, Stamkos who will get paid quite a bit. Others lesser paid will be Namestnikov, Paquette, Brown, Nesterov.

 

Next year they have to resign Drouin, Palat, Johnson (hello big money), Hedman (biggg pay day), Bishop (contract might be bigger than his frame).

 

They have $18 million this year to resign people. If they throw $10 million at Stamkos that leaves 8 million to resign Killorn, Kucherov and the rest of the RFAs. There simply is NOT enough money for this team to re-sign people. Stamkos is the common denominator here. If they want to retain the team that went to the conference finals this year, Stamkos might be the guy who walks while everyone else is resigned.

Glad he's re-signed. Not a player I wanted Holland to go after.

Back off the ledge boys, Bobby Mac to the rescue:

 

"DET will trade contract first, acquiring team will terminate contract, take cap hit. Contract will get terminated, not by DET."

 

Pretty important detail that Shannon left out, not cool.

We're a slick puck moving dman away from being able to play a different style of game. Lose Quincey, buyout Ericsson, give Smith a larger role and possibly add a good offensive defensemen and this is a different style of team

Avalanche NOT trading D Tyson Barrie, GM Joe Sakic tells me. LT deal preferred for RFA, or arbitration. "Either way, he'll be here" - Sakic

Good news. Now I hope Bob Murray makes a similar statement regarding Vatanen...

Also, we can't offer sheet him 8 years..

Or frank, if your intent by saying "offer sheet trouba with a massive signing bonus then extend him" was meant to mean a huge one year contract then extension, I disagree with that.

Anything above 9.5 mill-ish (I forget the exact number) would compensate the jets with 4 first round picks. I like trouba as much as the next guy, but I wouldn't ever trade 4 first round picks for him
