Boy I hope Tatar and Nyquist find their games and Larkin doesn't go through a sophomore slump or this season may be brutal to watch.

How much tampering is going on. No way these guys work out the term and money 2 minutes into free agency. They aren't supposed to be talking money.

Pretty sad job by Holland. You do not pay 4 million for someone who isn't in the top two lines.


The scary part is he might be on the top 2 lines...............

Glad Radulov went somewhere else. Not what we need in the locker room.

Unbelievable....just unbelievable. The only way I'm ok with this is if he doesn't sign Nielsen and instead gets Okposo and Eriksson.

Red Wings working very hard to get deal done with Darren Helm this morning. It's close.


Holland is like the girlfriend that is in a bad relationship that doesn't know when to move on. The relationship is familiar so she just stays put.

I think if we are getting Nielsen, we have to get Okposo too. Just Nielsen by itself leaves us a worse team than we were last year and we BARELY made the playoffs. If it is just Nielsen, I'd rather stand pat and do a mini rebuild.

sorry but stamkos makes 8.5.  okposo doesnt get 8


If you wanted him to come down on term you would prolly have to pay him 8 mill. So instead of $7/7 you could maybe get him for $8/4. All speculation of course. I'm sure he would rather have term like most of the other big name free agents.

Ugh I don't want any of these albatross deals. All these guys are going to get signed for way too much money for way too long of a term.


#2680478 Other than Stamkos, which FA forward do you want?

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 30 June 2016 - 12:58 AM

I'd rather re-up Helm and get Okposo then to sign Nielsen to a long deal to get a center. Nielsen will end up being a terrible contract in 2 years.

If Darren Helm had hands he would definitely be a 2nd line player. AA absolutely could develop into a 2C - he's only been played half a year - he is going to get better.

There is no honor in tanking.  It's a terrible idea to purposely tank and I cannot comprehend how some of you suggest it as an option.  There are other ways to get back and we'll find our way there.


I'm not saying we need to purposely tank. None of the free agents are going to make us contenders so why give a guy like Nielsen who is 32 a 5 or 6 year deal worth 5.5-6.0 million dollars just because.


#2680436 Stamkos to... Tampa

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 29 June 2016 - 10:33 PM

The only good thing is he signed before July 1st. At least we didn't get strung along for 3 days while all the other free agents signed like Suter and Parise did.

KH better get Belle Tire on the phone

I found this Stamkos Contract Calculator in TSN. And Detroit is the best option for net salary.

oh and also this: 
"Made up Tweet: Stamkos met the Belle Tire Man and Little Caesar himself, serenaded by Eminem." per @GeorgeMalik :D


Stamkos can have all the hot and ready's he wants if he comes to Detroit. That in itself should mean this is a done deal.
