GusGus won.  Nice to win something this season, eh?


At least the Wings are perennial POY contenders.

Just in case you forgot about the Hawks/Wings.. some images from 2013 playoffs.

Never understood why people don't understand this...


The RFA compensation system completely favours the team who initially drafted the player. In Dougie Hamilton's case (a player drafted 9th overall) seeking upwards of $7,000,000 annually - we would have to give up two 1st Round Picks, a 2nd and a 3rd Round Pick plus overpay him in the first place to prevent Boston from matching the offer.


Here is a look at the most recent players we drafted (with the same picks) that would be forfeited to acquire Dougie Hamilton:


Is Hamilton really worth $7M?  Blows my mind an RFA is commanding this type of money.  I knew he was good, but not *that* good.

Even when it's not about the money, it's about the money.  This whole process has me pretty sour.  Time for the Blashill era.
