Awesome story about the Wings' last pick, Adam Marsh. Considered a "problem" by some, he may turn out to be a late round steal. This may be the first pick that has Blashill written all over it, given that the kid was originally drafted by the Indy Ice, Blash's former team.
If they want to buy out Weiss they might as well wait until next year anyway.. maybe he bounces back but even if he doesn't, the cap hit from the buy out will be less in both term and dollars. We can afford keep him on the books this season and add a contract if we so choose.
Exactly. Ton's of cap space this year. See what Blashill can do with him. Maybe he plays well enough to generate some trade interest. If he struggles, dump him next June when that 2.5M (or whatever) in cap space becomes more valuable.
I also read somewhere that it's "not about the money" & where he signs depends more about the quality of team he could sign to and what role he would get on said team. He wants top minutes, more power play time, etc.. something the wings could obviously give him based on the state of the defense. I think all of that points to him being signed by the wings, assuming he means it when he says "it's not about the money" & signs at a decent value. I would love to sign green at say 3 years, 12 million. But I expect him to get more. He'll certainly get better offers from teams like the oilers.
