The wings should invite kessel to their meeting with stamkos to talk about what it's like being the star player in Toronto :P

Hall plus Stammer would be filthy haha but no, I don't think we have what it takes to make a trade there. If they trade a top forward, it'll be for a top d man.

I'm assuming you meant no instead of now, right?

Yeah it's a great deal for cbus.. If only we could trade for him at that cap hit :P

I feel like I'd prefer staal as a center backup plan for stamkos over Nielsen.. Not that I'm really fond of staal or anything but I heard he's not expecting a long term deal; as long as he gets a top 6 center spot.

Staal for a year or two sounds better than 5+ years of Nielsen to me.. Maybe I'm wrong in thinking that; I haven't watched much of the islanders but he might even be a cheaper cap hit than Nielsen too.

Thoughts?

RE: qualifying offers....

"The current team must extend a "qualifying offer" to a restricted free agent to retain negotiating rights to that player. Qualifying offers are for one year contracts. The minimum salary for the qualifying offer depends on the player's prior year salary.

Players who earned less than $660,000 in the previous season must be offered 110 percent of last season's salary. Players making up to $1 million must be offered 105 percent. Players making over $1 million must be offered 100 percent.

If the qualifying offer is not made, the player becomes an unrestricted free agent.

If the player rejects a qualifying offer, he remains a restricted free agent"


A different contract can be negotiated after a qualifying offer is extended to a player.

Gotcha.. Thanks for posting it, but I'll just take it as speculation for the time being. Wouldn't surprise me if KH at least reached out to Lucic though.

hmm Hronek does sound decent.. Offensive d man, playing in Czech pro league "running power plays" and "better with the puck on his stick." Those are good but man, 163 at 6 feet tall.. Kid needs to put on some serious muscle.

I thought I heard that at the mid point last year, McKenzie & friends NBC rankings or whatever had Chowlowski ranked in the 50s or so and he ended up at 25ish on the final rankings.. That progress is at least encouraging. Hopefully he continues to develop at a good rate. It'll be interesting to follow him vs Chychrun's development.


#2679301 Detroit trades Datsyuk to Arizona

I vote good job holland because (depending on their draft board) just the 16th for the 20th and 53rd sounds like a good trade by itself. The fact that we opened up 7.5 mill in cap space along with it is excellent.


#2679168 Detroit trades Datsyuk to Arizona

Posted by amato on 24 June 2016 - 08:40 PM

Almost the full 7.5.. Vitales hit is a little over 1 mill so most of it can be buried in the minors

We can thank chychruns fall for that one. Would've loved to see that guy in a wings jersey but this was a deal the wings couldn't pass up

Canadiens trade Lars Eller to the caps for two second rounders.. Then trade two seconds to the Blackhawks for Shaw.
