It's a good thing Khan put that "T." In front of "Bertuzzi"....otherwise people might have thought he was talking about Todd instead of Tyler.

Same here thought he could get as much as 4 mill aav he is obviously worth it if you are looking at some of the other contracts.


Can you please give me some examples of young defenseman with under 80 career games played who signed for 4mil per year?

As I mentioned earlier - had DD been offered what some thought would be a 'fair' deal ($2.75 to $3 million per season) - I'm certain he would've signed.


Again - it was Holland who was lowballing, but ya can't blame him since he had the leverage.


How in the world can you prove Holland lowballed him?


Perhaps DD, the loyal Michigander and Wings fan that he is, wanted to get something locked up long term? Maybe Ken got cold feet on a long deal after signing Kindl? Maybe the entire delay was over term, with which they finally agreed on 2 years after adjusting the financials?

Or maybe not one of us has any idea whatsoever?


Good deal IMO

#2536255 Ericsson and Alfredsson not 100%

Alfie go out in style no need to put your body through this you've already 68 $ million in your bank account!


Sign a day contract in Ottawa and retire as a Senator don't just hang on for the sake of it like Brodeur and Jagr are doing it's just not worth it.

Jagr is still damn good. Alfie was still very good as well, when not dealing with his injuries. 


Call me naive, but these guys love the game - they not going to "just hang on for the sake of it". They'll spend the rest of their lives wishing they could still play, so why not try to play as long as it's still possible and you think you can be effective?

Lashoff is pretty solid for a 7 and still has some room to grow. I'm done with Kindl though.

She's essentially Ken Holland, in the form of a "reporter." I can read press releases and Holland's tireless quotes if I want the organizational spin.

What in that article do you actually disagree with?


Helen called for Quincey to be traded or scratched last year. She wrote that Clearly shouldn't be brought back this summer.


She gets more flack than she deserves.

#2535577 Datsyuk or Fedorov?

Posted by KATIEBARTHEDOOR24 on 04 September 2014 - 05:20 PM

I believe both will be in the hall. As the better player that's a different question. Fedorov all day every day. If he came to play everyday. Dats is awesome no question. But he can't take over and score like Feds. Both play great d but Feds actually played on a d line.

You need good scouting and proper development in order to get value from your draft picks, as well as a solid plan (looking at you, Oilers), but a high percentage of the elite players come from the top half of the first round.  Last year's top 8 scorers were first round picks, 3 first overall, a 2nd, a 5th, then 19th, 22nd, and 28th.  Looking at the top 30 scorers, only 6 were taken outside of the first round, and 18 of the 30 were top 10 picks.  Looking at defensemen by TOI/gm, 12 of the top 30 were first rounders, and 7 were taken in the second.  Given that 18 year old defensemen are harder to project, that makes sense, but it still shows that you're far more likely to get a #1 defenseman in the first round than you are in any other round.

I remember when z and d would never turn into Stevie and feds...


They didn't.  Yzerman and Fedorov were better players.

#2534502 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by number9 on 18 August 2014 - 03:27 PM


Ehrhoff, Niskanen are a big deal because they would have fixed an ever increasing hole since Lidas left.


Holland and some fans need to realize the time where players would come here for less are over. The Wings nowadays are just one of the teams asking for their service and if the money isn't comparable or hence better they won't sign. Overpayment and taking risks are part of a  GMs job, UFA is also known as overpayment day but guess what ? I would have given Suter, Parise even 15 years if it means we are getting to see another cup for Mr. I, Pasha and Z after they've done so much for this former TOP destination in the NHL.


Whats the point of having capsapce if the top guys aren't hitting UFA anymore or you aren't going to use it t o your  advantage ? Add to that it's not like the capspace has been used wisely this off-season either, overpayment for 2 players and third on the cusp of getting re-signed which doesn't leave a lot for a local hero (Danny D) is that smart cap management ? I don't think so.


Also Holland didn't take a risks and still lost a trades by a landslide (Poilé absolutely schooled him) so losing a big trade is much better than getting schooled by another gm, as did Yzerman two years ago..


As for McDavid the competition is fierce and tough you need to outtank: Buffalo, Florida, Winnipeg, Edmonton, New York, Calgary and maybe even Phoenix but keep in mind the second pick is also a great one Eichel will be a star in this league too.


There is about 0% chance we pick in the top 5, and a very small chance that we even pick in the top 10... but keep dreaming
