Didnt see a post about this, but wondered how you guys felt about Tortorella's public comments about Carl Hagelin. I feel that publicly saying one of your better players stinks and doesn't do anything positive on the powerplay is just ludacris. This guy doesn't deserve to be a coach.
Sorry if there is another thread for this. Please merge if there is. Tomorrow Shane Doan is expected to decide whether to stay in Phoenix or shop around for teams. I believe that with reports that Holland has had talks with Doans agent and that we have heard very little about the Wings and Semin, Doan is what the wings are really going after for a back up to parise. Lets face it, Doan is the kind of player the Wings go for. Experienced, wants to win at all costs, plays all areas of the ice and has leadership and a great attitude. He may not score as much as Semin but he would give the wings so much more. I hope news breaks tomorrow about Doan being a wing.
http://espn.go.com/n...ason-salary-cap The Union is expected to announce later Thursday the approval of a $70.2 million salary cap for this offseason. With last years cap being $64.3 mill what will this mean for teams like Detroit and Pitt vying for the big free agents (Suter, Parise)?
