In Topic: If You Think Hudler's NOT worth $3 Million...

23 June 2009 - 08:47 AM

Does anybody realize there is a scenario that Hudler could resign anywhere for $3 Million/year and the Wings don't get this 1 & 3 that everybody is counting on.

1) Hudler is a RFA Arbitration Eligible.
2) He declares he wants to go to Arbitration and the Wings don't give him a contract that he and his agent like.
3) Go to Arbitration and the Arbitrator awards him something the Wings won't match and they walk away.
4) Hudler can now declare himself a UFA.
5) Signs anywhere for any salary. (Wings get 0 Picks)

Just got word from my rep that there will be no Joe Vision due to what he thinks is NBC and the rights to showing it. He said they do not want it shown due to the NBA Finals already taking viewers from them. Something to due with home viewers. NBC is becoming an issue.

Yeah I just talked to my rep as well, and personally this sucks what NBC is doing. I am going to go to my favorite watering hole and watch it there.

So if we all do that we can protest NBC as well as putting a little bit of money back into the southeast Michigan economy. smile.gif

Maltby is 35 right now. He signed his currrent contract in May of 2007, therefore, if he retires his salary would not count against the cap. You are correct, however, that if Draper were to retire, his salary would count against the cap.

You are correct. I thought Maltby was a little bit older.

Problem is that if Maltby and Draper retire, their salaries still count against the cap because the signed after they were 35.

In Topic: The best "insults" you've heard against the Wings

It is not a Wings insult, but me and my wife thought it was pretty funny.

This was yelled at me at the Winter Classic this year:

My wife and I (all decked out in Wings Jerseys etc...) were walking through the concourse at Wrigley Field and a couple of guys were walking toward us and yelled:

"Lions Suck..."

We Said: "You are right...:

They said "We don't got anything else..."
