Yeah Holland has his work cut out for him this off season. We've now lost 3 of our top 4 D-men in the last 2 off seasons and have only gained white and quincey. Suter is a must, but we're gonna need a second strong D-man to be brought in as well.
The true insult would be a 42 year old getting $6+ million next year. We all respect the hell out of Nick but he was overpaid this year. It would be a tragic mistake to give him more than $2 million should he return.
I don't think 2 is fair, but I agree it shouldn't be 6 at this point. The problem is, we're paying Big E 3.25 a season and while he improved some towards the end of the season and playoffs, he still can't stand in the shadow of Nick.
Yeah, he was quite injured...He missed, what the first 20+ games I think it was of the next season after surgery. Franzen is completely healthy and sucking....but most the team is right now, so I can't single him out, but just in the case of Hossa vs. Franzen, the Hoss was the way to go. I'd give up Flip and Mule at this point if we could have had Hossa.
Keep your head up.
Good play. Maybe a hair late, but good play.
