Oh well. Would have been nice to have him, however, if we had gotten him, Datsyuk and Zetteberg would have been on the same line and we're a much harder team to play against/match up against during the playoffs when they're on separate lines. There's always Jagr. He'll sign for just a year and it won't be for as much as Vinny. Plus, I liked what I saw from him defensively this past season, so he could be a fit.
Also, I noticed Colo is going to be bought out. That's kind of confusing. We have way too many subpar forwards, holes on defense and we buyout Colo and not Sammy or Bert? I felt like he was pretty solid for us down the stretch and into the playoffs and outplayed his $2.5 mil contract.
oh god man , cant believe couldnt find a team to take him for like a 7th round pick hes just got one year left on his deal, waste of a buyout ... how is it everyone knew the signings of coliacovo and samuelsson were a mistake except for holland
ken holland should of traded fippula ages ago , another asset lost for nothing , not even negotiating rights traded after the season i dont know what the hell hes doing , was he planning to blackmail him into changing his mind and signing for 3 mill a yr instead of 5?? everyone knew he was testing the market ... such a waste
jim nill cost us nicushkin at the draft (knew he wouldnt go past 10 when i saw dallas up )
and now i predict he will sign all or 2 of filppula brunner and cleary
man wanted him so bad a few years ago i know boston has been dissapointed with him but hes still so young , what would it take to get him? would anyone take a chance? be nice to have a 20 yr old future star on the team, could never happen anyways since were gonna be in the same division
good signing i think we will like this signing in the 2nd and beyond years ... so were basically getting rid of coliacovo to pay kindl , i cant imagine smith has done enough to merit that high of a cap hit?? maybe 2 yrs 3 million?
i got it to work and i watched some of the 2nd ... man what an awful feed lol they want people to spend like 2-300 dollars for ahl hockey and thats the feeds for the game? jesus ... so bad
with all these useless channels out they should come up with a channel where they show junior hockey from canada and ncaa games as well as ahl so we dont have to watch hockey online with these awful shots
you think its just gonna cost us 2 1sts and nyquist for malkin???? more like nyquist smith mrazek and jarnkrok or jurco and then malkins cap number will be 9ish and future free agents will want more money because malkins is so high , detroits always been about taking less money and spreading it to other players so we can have a competitive team, after datsyuk the highest cap number is zetterberg's 6
we add malkin it can throw everything off ... no thanks we'll be better off in the long run
