He has. It was confirmed earlier that some teams have been told that they're out. If a team has an offer in and hasn't been told that they're out, they're likely still in.

I didn't see this

He probably does. That's why there aren't still 20 teams in the running. But have you considered that there are many places he might like to play for a variety of reasons, each with pros and cons? And that despite playing it through your head, you have no real idea what you're dealing with exactly until teams can actually call and send over their offers, and they couldn't do that before 30 hours ago, and they likely couldn't reasonably start sorting through it until about 24 hours ago.

So the guy and his agent have had about 30 hours to deal with concrete choices and actually have discussions with teams about those choices and your upset because he wants another 12-24 hours?

You're sitting on a message board. He's debating a decision that will have an enormous affect on the next 12 years of his life. Take a step back and think about that for a minute.

And for the record, his agent was quoted as saying a decision could still come tonight if made early enough about an hour ago, so again, try to have a little patience and empathy for the guy.

He could still (publicly) narrow down the list of teams. A lot of teams are handcuffed right now because they don't know what is going on.

Normally, in seasons past, I wouldn't ever think of this, but the way the Wings have been playing for the last 6 weeks... I begin to wonder if it would be better for us to lose to Chicago on Sat., let them play vs Nashville in the 1st round, and play vs SJ/LA instead. Either one of those teams seems like a better matchup than Nashville right now.

My thoughts exactly.

I don't have a warm fuzzy feeling about this year's playoffs. They are still my team though, so I will be supporting them. However, I live in Nashville, and I really really really don't want to see the Preds knock us out in the first round. I would never hear the end of it. Do I really have to cheer for the Blackhawks tomorrow? :puke:

If we are going to get bounced from the playoffs...I'll take any team doing it besides Nashville.
