If we were to sign ehrhoff for the first pair, I'd rather keep the second pair Dekeyser and Quincey.. They played well together last season.
Not an amazing defensive lineup but not terrible. But, I don't think Ehrhoff will be signed by Kenny.. although if I remember correctly, didn't we have interest in him before he signed with Pittsburgh? If he could stay healthy, he'd be a decent addition on a short deal.
So pissed about this entire Weiss situation. Holland screwed up by signing him over Filppula (yeah yeah I know I still miss him), Babcock managed him like s*** two years in a row and Holland should have just bought him out when he had the chance to do it without penalty (admittedly I'm not sure if we could have bought him out without penalty).
We couldn't have. Players had to be signed before the new cba was signed to be eligible for the compliance buyouts.
And, krsmith, I thought they'd give him another season under a new coach to play well here too.. I'm guessing the new coach didn't want him as much as one of his kids from GR. Mayyybe we're planning on signing franson/green/whoever, but I think it's more blashill didn't have Weiss in his plans. I'm sure Kenny was trying to include him in a trade before buying him out but obviously no potential trade scenario panned out.. best of luck to Weiss, I wish he would've had a better time in Detroit.
