If I were those guys I'd want want short term deals if this is how they're treated.
Yes, Helm and Abby have not been treated well by the Wings organization, that is something you often hear about this franchise.
You post too much by the way, no need to be so controlling.
You mean controlling . . like trying to dictate what is the appropriate amount of posting.
That's the problem isn't it? you had to speak about his past. He's not that player anymore, far from it. Helm would score much better this season with Hudler on his line and some stability. He can do everything we need from the 3rd line center, everything. Modano fits fine but we don't need him. We have to many forwards as it is. We probably lose Ritola for nothing and maybe more. Why to fill a spot that that's already occupied by a great young player? This isn't pre lockout, where you can sign a vet to play every position.
This is short sided thinking, it's a bad practice. I hope the guy just retires.
Um, I think you mean shortsighted and also I don't think the phrase "still very good" is speaking about the past it is speaking of the present.
His own team want's to move on, that's exactly what the Wings should do.
His own team is not in the same situation as the Wings. The Wings should make the playoffs with a ripe and well developed team that has a legitimate shot at winning the Stanley Cup and only need to tweak their team. Dallas on the other hand did not make the playoff and is rebuilding their team for future success. It is not the same to compare what Dallas needs and what Detroit needs.
