Who was the first?

 

Richards




#2681771 Darren Helm re-signed: 5 years, $3.85m AAV

Posted by marcaractac on Today, 06:59 PM

Hate Shaw.

Helm is the least of our problems. He works his butt off and is fast.

I'm ok with this.

The real deadweight on this team = Erickson, Kronwall, Howard

Move some of these pieces if possible

 

I wouldn't say Kronwall is dead weight, he just needs to be counted on less at this point. He still has a lot to offer in a lesser role. 

 

As for Howard and Ericsson, I agree. Sadly we're stuck with Howard unless we get lucky.

The way I see it, no players were taken on outside of Neilson that has to be protected for the expansion draft. If Vanek plays well and decided Detroit is a good fit, he can re-sign after the draft. So on the bright side, at least we shouldn't lose anyone meaningful when that time comes. 




#2681712 Frans Nielson signs 6 year $5.25m AAV contract with Detroit

I feel a lot less bad now than I did a few hours ago.  A lot needs to go right for a successful season, but at least the pressure won't be all on guys like Larkin and AA. They now have time to grow into their roles instead of being forced into them.

Merged both of our Offseason threads, not sure why there were two. We can keep it all consolidated here. Carry on.

 

One was for the Wings moves specifically, the other was for all other teams

LOL @ Eklund




#2681303 Frans Nielson signs 6 year $5.25m AAV contract with Detroit

Posted by marcaractac on Today, 12:11 PM

The more I read about Nielsen, the more i like him.. The term obviously isn't great but that's free agency for ya. Hopefully holland isn't done.

 

I'm in the same boat. Seems like he'll be a good fit. And the limited no trade after two years makes that contract movable if he starts to decline or if Larkin and AA surpass the hell out of him at center. 

 

And maybe we'll win shootouts now!!




#2681276 Darren Helm re-signed: 5 years, $3.85m AAV

I'm fine with this contract. Helm is only 29. And the cap hit will in no way hurt the team. Glad he is sticking around. 

 

Does Miller make the team now that we have Helmer back and Neilson who can also kill penalties? Seems to me Miller should be the odd man out.

I'd like the Neilson signing a lot more if it was 4 years for a little more money. It's 4 years from now that concerns me. 

 

The good thing about him is he is durable. So hoping no past injury issues means he can still be effective post 35.

Damn. We should have went after Staal if he was that cheap.

 

I've been saying all week he'd be cheap with a short term. Would have given us depth at center long enough for Larkin and AA to develop into legit top 6 centers themselves. Now in 3 years we're gonna have a 5.25 million player we do not need. At least Backes would have had value as a role player in the bottom 6 in a few years.

Signing Neilson is nothing more than a desperate attempt to keep the streak alive. Which is all we have to look forward to until the streak finally ends.
