In Topic: Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Today, 09:55 AM

I really like this signing. We rid ourselves of Weiss' contract, and gained a much better option and only for one season. I believe this is the perfect stopgap before Larkin makes the team full time next season. Richards still has some good hockey left in him and I believe he will be good for 40-50 points next season as a 2nd/3rd line center...

In Topic: Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Today, 09:53 AM

I initially didn't want any part of Green, mainly because I was expecting him to get somewhere in the neighborhood of 6 or 7 years at $6M per. I'm happy we were able to get him on a 3 year contract at the same cap hit. I'm not sold on his defensive game, but there's no question he will help out our already potent power-play. I think 50 points is very attainable, and he very well may be our top point producing defender next season. I also agree that pairing him with DeKeyser would likely be a very good 2nd pairing. I'm excited to see how things shake out in trading camp...

Happy to see McCollum back. Good re-sign.
Same goes for Miele.

I think every coach would prefer to have three lefty / righty pairings. The problem is, there are more left handed shooters in the league than rights. I think it's something close on 70% for lefties over righties...

In Topic: Alexander semin being bought out

Yesterday, 05:12 AM

I'd definitely take him on a 1 or 2 year deal worth no more than $2-2.5M per... He is lazy, but he was lazy back in his Washington days too. That didn't stop him from potting 30-40 goals per season. We have more than enough two way guys that could make up for his lack of defense. Put him on a line with Pav and he would put up 30+ for sure. He would be a massive upgrade on our power-play. Imagine having Semin on one unit and Pulkkinen on the other, coached by someone that will actually use them properly, around the left circle, where they could let off those nasty one-timers...
