So all of you with your misplaced rage on Holland about not getting Brunner signed, where are you now???
I'm still here. I still don't like the Alfredsson signing and believe that having Brunner over him would be good for now and the future. 1 year is not my idea of a good use of 3.5 mil with 5.5 mil incentives.
My... god. I gotta believe that Holland was merely a figure head to Nill. There is no other reason that these guys would stay loyal to someone that isn't our guy. Horrible past two days for the Detroit Red Wings. Ilitch better stop paying so much attention to the Tigers and start looking at what is happening at his other teams offices.
The only logical explanation I can come up with, is that they are showing these guys off as trade bait. Perhaps making room for Helm as well, but Cleary/Abdelkader/Eaves/Miller haven't been pulling they're contract weight. I would bench them or put them on waivers before sending Tatar down.
Shocking really, I hope this is the aberration year we have to deal with and things get back to normal. Cause next year, we'll be in the East facing stiffer competition and this team isn't going to cut it.
All I've heard is excuses to why what WE tell you won't work.
So your in the opinion we should rebuild because you heard through "sources" that Datsyuk is leaving for the KHL eventually. Also that YOU think a bunch of our AHL guys are career AHLers and they won't sniff the NHL? Which quite a few of them have seen time in it and some are still too young to get the call up.
So we should rebuild because your right and we're wrong? Nani-Nani-boo-boo? Stick your head in doo-doo?
Oh no! A guy that helped win the Stanley Cup in 08'!!! You guys freak out too much. Do I love this signing? Not really, do I like it? Sure. Money is a little rough but you know he isn't any worse than HUDLER. So welcome back Mikael, good luck.
