#2619111 Nyquist Files For Arbitration

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 05 July 2015 - 04:55 PM

It's amazing how fast people will turn on a player.


If memory serves, this is more of a basic procedural thing than a real indication that things are going poorly.  By filing for arbitration Nyquist forfeits the right to accept an offer sheet from other teams.  In other words, he's committing to the Wings by filing.  


Today is the deadline to file so the timing is likely a result of that, not something that happened with the Wings.  I'm pretty sure this is something players do that's just a backup plan for a worst case scenario. And again, by doing so he cannot accept an offer sheet from another team.

Weren't we $17 million under the cap?  Who gives a s*** if we gave Richards $3 mill for one year?

It's laughable at how people complain about Holland doing nothing in years past, and now he goes out a makes some deals today, and some people still complain.


Holland signed one of the biggest d-man F/A's today, then picks up an UPGRADE over Weiss, for only one year, and people still aren't happy.


I'm 100% happy with what Holland did today.  Well done, sir!

Are they better for the singings today? YES they are. More competition from the kids, more insurance for injuries. No prospects lost. Money comes and goes.


So far the Wings have gotten better.

Yeah it's 3 mil but it's only a 1 year deal. Let's not make it seem like Holland has lost his mind.

#2618586 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

An offensive defenseman under 30 with a RH shot on a short term deal?  Even if he does end up being subpar on the back end, it's really hard to find fault with this deal.  When you consider what's out there (or what isn't out there) and the prices that those guys are demanding, kind of hard to find any negatives to it.

#2618354 Now for a #2 C.

Can we please sign a winger that would remove Abdelkader from the top line?  

Are you living in the past? Abby hits everything that moves, he battles for pucks goes into corners, and is coming off a 23 goal 44 point season. Not to mention this is a contract year for him, so he may even put up 55 points

90 should be available, it's worked out well for the last 2 FA signings we gave it to. 


#90 needs to be retired and hung from the rafters.


In the men's room.

Green vs Zidlicky.


Yea I would take Green 100 times over. Zidlicky was invisible for the Wings in the playoffs, and we needed him the most to step up. Nothing wrong at all with this signing, unless of course you are a Holland hater.

Actually Zidlicky wasn't invisible, he could be seen giving away awful turnovers that directly led to goals against. Dude was good for 2-3 weeks and then was atrocious.

Exciting! Please stay healthy Mike!

Nyquist is untouchable... If anything Mantha or AA would be the forward and they wouldn't want any of our defenseman I don't think.


For the right player no one on this team should  be untouchable except Datsyuk and Zetterberg.

Wait until the Wings trade one of these picks for a veteran at the deadline. You'll care then.


We will at that time never hear the end of it  :lol:
