In Topic: Thomas Vanek signs 1 year, $2.6m deal with Detroit

I bet Tatar or Nyquist will be dealt now for a D-Man

 

I would doubt it, I'd hope that Vanek is and Nielson are small nudges to help Tats and Goose score.  They alone will not fill that void.  I love the Vanek deal, it adds some hope.

In my opinion I would have taken Eric Stall at 3.5, thats what makes Nielson hurt more.

I am very glad we kept him, and a very typical salary too so at least we didn't overpay to retain him...

Hope this won't turn into another Weiss.

 

  I couldn't agree more, its the first thing I thought of when I saw the signing...I wont lie though, I all I know about him is the 2016 highlight reel on youtube i just watched.  At 32 years old he is certainly on the wrong side of the slope for me.  


In Topic: Darren Helm re-signed: 5 years, $3.85m AAV

Well I feel awkward...I LOVE Helm and at this point Im grasping to the devil we know....I know he wont score 20 goals, 15 was a lot for him, but his energy is OFF the charts.  The contract is obviously too long by 2 years, but there is a role Helm can fit into as long as they aren't forcing him into our top 6.  Pair Helm and AA together for a speedy line 3.

 

               I get it's not the perfect contract, but I think calling for Holland to be fired when its 11am on trade deadline day is as crazy as some of you make this contract out to be, perhaps he's setting the table for a trade or three       :hammer:
