Maybe he wouldn't sign somewhere else for the same reason 99 percent of the other wings don't sign somewhere else? I dunno, call me crazy.


Name one Red Wings first rounder that went half a decade without playing a full role in the NHL, while at the same time being one of the best prospects in the NHL and will obviously get offer sheets since Detroit will be up against the cap, unless Lidstrom retires.

The only comparable player is Howard, except teams aren't lining up for a guy like Howard but a guy like Kindl could step into the lineup of every team in the league besides Anahiem and Detroit.

At this point, Kindl is more of a Griffin than a Red Wing. The team didn't take a flier on him, he dropped on draft day but he was well known. Doesn't really owe the team anything.

I'd go buy a nice watch. I mean I think I've earned it.

And a nice suit.

Also Kindl won't be playing here for at least 2 years, barring a miracle, in which case he's a year away tongue.gif

You won't see Kindl until Lidstrom retires, there's just no room and he is no where close to being NHL ready. He should be real good once he matures, though.


Kindl is only signed for another season... he'll be a RFA after that and you can say goodbye to him if he gets zero playing time in the NHL. 29 other teams will give the kid an offer sheet and why wouldn't he sign it if he went five years without playing regular time in the NHL?
