#2681721 Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on 01 July 2016 - 05:06 PM

 

Then why he made public that he'd only join teams on his shortlist of about 5 teams? If you wanna sign with a specific franchise and want to get more money outta them you want to get everybody involved to raise your value.

Kenny just messed up. That's how it is.

For negotiating purposes, you make it look like you're legitimately considering other teams. Then the team you want to go to pays you more thinking they might not get you. Thought amato explained it well.

 

Or maybe you're just ignore this possibility so you can blame this on Holland.




#2681768 Steve Ott signs 1 year, $800k deal with Detroit

Posted by kickazz on 01 July 2016 - 06:51 PM

"To be honest with you Ive waited for this moment ever since I was drafted," Ott said. "Ive always wanted to be a Detroit Red Wing. Its my childhood team that I always grew up admiring with the teams and runs that they had with Steve Yzerman and the rest leading the way. It has always been a dream to wear the winged wheel and now that this has all come together this is the most exciting contract I have ever signed."

Well. You have my loyalty as a fan Sir. 




#2681712 Frans Nielson signs 6 year $5.25m AAV contract with Detroit

I feel a lot less bad now than I did a few hours ago.  A lot needs to go right for a successful season, but at least the pressure won't be all on guys like Larkin and AA. They now have time to grow into their roles instead of being forced into them.

The way I see it, no players were taken on outside of Neilson that has to be protected for the expansion draft. If Vanek plays well and decided Detroit is a good fit, he can re-sign after the draft. So on the bright side, at least we shouldn't lose anyone meaningful when that time comes.

Only 800K

As @detroithockey96 notes, if Ott does not make the team, he can be buried in the AHL.

1st of all, it'seems HeleneStJames source...
2nd of all, what was deal in place?
3rd of all, this franchise is so f***ed up that we can't even sign 4th liners.


The deal was a front loaded 4 year contract. That's all anyone knows. You can ***** that he doesn't want to sign here all you want. But obviously Ken tried to get him and missed. But you're acting like he never even tried. A lot of people today acting like children throwing temper tantrums because they didn't get their way. Guess what a lot of players passed on a lot of teams today. We weren't the only ones to get passed up on.

VasilevskiY just re-signed 3 years $10.5M. Sounds perfect for Mrazek to follow. Good numbers imo.

Merged both of our Offseason threads, not sure why there were two. We can keep it all consolidated here. Carry on.




#2681338 Frans Nielson signs 6 year $5.25m AAV contract with Detroit

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on 01 July 2016 - 12:26 PM

The more I read about Nielsen, the more i like him.. The term obviously isn't great but that's free agency for ya. Hopefully holland isn't done.

Yeah, same. Seems he's a great 2 way guy. Best ever shootout guy. He's been healthy - missed only 5 games in the past 5 years (notice this for those comparing this to the Weiss situation). A lot to like here. and 5.25 is a good cap hit if he's a legit 2C. Also, I like his story as the first ever Danish NHLer.

 

After losing Pav, and the prospect of Stamkos he certainly would pale in comparison, but I'm going to reserve judgement and see what he brings to the table.

I'm in the same boat. Seems like he'll be a good fit. And the limited no trade after two years makes that contract movable if he starts to decline or if Larkin and AA surpass the hell out of him at center. 

 

And maybe we'll win shootouts now!!

Just because he was good in NY doesn't mean he'll be here, remember Weiss?  We don't have the same players.  We have players that can't find the back side of the barn let alone the net.

 

Weiss flunked out because he couldn't stay healthy, which didn't allot him the time necessary to learn our system, gain any concistency, or gaining any cohesion with linemates.

 

Nielsen, while I don't think is truly the answer, has only missed 7 games over the past 5 seasons.  Other than Okposo, he'll be playing with some better wingers here (Zetterberg, Nyquist, Tatar, Larkin, maybe Mantha if he can transition).

I'd like the Neilson signing a lot more if it was 4 years for a little more money. It's 4 years from now that concerns me. 

 

The good thing about him is he is durable. So hoping no past injury issues means he can still be effective post 35.

Good signing, but would have preferred four years max.

I had come to grips with the fact Nielson was likely our target after missing out on Stamkos but the Helm contract over signing an Okposso or Lucic is still stinging.


Not every player wants to come to Detroit. Lucic was going to Edmonton before today, anyone not seeing that is an idiot. Okposo was also reported to sign with the Sabres as of last night. No surprise again.

That's with the Isles, he's playing with the Wings now...


He's playing for the Wings so I guess he just forgets how to play hockey now...

This place sometimes.
