Because at the time we had no Helm or Neilson, I would imagine. 

Holland likes to panic and jump the gun on signing people. I like Miller, but it can't be that hard to find a UFA 4th line penalty killer if we somehow missed out on him.


 

I wouldn't say Kronwall is dead weight, he just needs to be counted on less at this point. He still has a lot to offer in a lesser role. 

 

As for Howard and Ericsson, I agree. Sadly we're stuck with Howard unless we get lucky.                                                                                                                            

 

Goalies are hard to move. We're stuck with Howard, maybe for the duration of the contract.  I would hope we could find a buyer over the next few years, but yeah, we're probably stuck with him.  Ericsson, even with all his contract stipulations, would be easier to move.  I'm with you on Kronwall, though.  He's still a serviceable top four guy, he just never really stepped into the Number 1 spot like we all hoped he would.  Unfortunately, we have about a thousand middle pairing defensemen, so...

Hate Shaw.

Helm is the least of our problems. He works his butt off and is fast.

I'm ok with this.

The real deadweight on this team = Erickson, Kronwall, Howard

Move some of these pieces if possible

No one is fit except for Dan Cleary, so we'll have to bring him back.

So the talk of getting "tougher" and "harder to play against" was just to get me through the week?

You would think we have to trade some guys. Logjam at D and at forward.

WOW. This guy can be a good player if he finds his motor. Someone has to wake him up and make him a 30-goal guy again. One year deal, i like it.

 

Helm is the only guy who can do it !!!

Hope this won't turn into another Weiss.

He was forced in a top six role because of shortage of talent and couldn't produce but now he's paid like a top six so that should solve all our problems. Can't get good players? Just pay em like their good then everyone will stop bugging you cause you won't have cap space. Nobody wants to trade with you cause all your players and contracts suck? Means no work for Holland to do. This team has no direction. We won't be good until Holland leaves

I just hope to the Gods that Helm is not in the top 6.  If we're using him as a center, he had better be on the third line at most.  Just sucks because this takes away from AA's playing time.  Holland is a moron, Helm deserved no more than 3 million over 3 years.  At least he's been relatively healthy over the past 2 seasons.

Holland sorta reminds me of Adam West from 'The Family Guy'...

 

/Adam West voice

 

So - Stevie - you're gonna sign Stamkos? Well I'm gonna sign Helm! Take that my arch rival!

The scary part is he might be on the top 2 lines...............


Okay, you don't have to tell horror stories this early in the day

Pretty sad job by Holland. You do not pay 4 million for someone who isn't in the top two lines.
