In Topic: Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Martin St. Louis cannot play center.

 

So you'd rather take a lesser player because one can play center and the other can't?  Z, D, Sheahan, Helm, Glendenning, we're good on centers.

 

EDIT: Maybe they'll get both.  Then trade for Lecavalier and have the big three from TB's last Cup team. lol

Richards wasn't very good last year and he was on a great team.  I'm not against signing him, but I'm interested in how much and how that cost would compare to Martin St Louis's price.


In Topic: Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Great signing!  The cap hit is about what I'd expect, not overpayment.  Much needed right handed shooter for the PP.  Ideally, I'd like to see them get another good d-man, but probably won't happen.  Happy with this though.


In Topic: Phil Kessel Traded to Penguins

Good trade for the Pens.  Basically gave up nothing, Tor is eating part of the salary and Kessel will score a TON of goals with Crosby and/or Malkin.  However, offense was never a problem. This team will still struggle in the postseason.


In Topic: Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Honestly, I feel like this was done just so they had more cap room to sign guys like Nyquist, Pulkkinen and Jurco.  I'm not saying that we won't sign any free agents, but the only way we get players these days are if they want to come here and play for less, nobody else wants them or via trade.  The Wings don't overpay for free agents and that's what the start free agency period is all about.
