Does Backes still seem practical? He's going to want a long term and he's already 32 and his production was worse than Zetterberg's. It got to a point where St. Louis was using him on the third line.

2 year deal would be ideal but I think he's going to want a long term deal.


I *love* Backes, and it's no secret that I've wanted him on the Wings for awhile. That being said, I wouldn't sign him for more than a 3 year deal to start.

I'm embarrassed to admit that when I saw all the draft day photos of the kids going around I had a brief moment of "WTF why are they all wearing Vladdy's number smh."

@tkulfan: Holland said he'll focus on replacing Datsyuk in free agency....what does he want to do with this newly created cap space? "Spend it"

We shall see...

@Buccigross:Steve Yzerman basically told @KathrynTappen: "we made our best offer to Stamkos. Take it or leave it."

@THNKenCampbell: The Detroit Red Wings have just emerged as the frontrunner in the Steven Stamkos Sweepstakes, in my opinion.

Yeah - we all know you have an embroidered 'I heart Chris Chelios' pillow on your bed.

What's to stop Chelios from taking up embroidery in his spare time?

Yeah, I'm not on board with Stammer wearing 91 if he comes to Detroit. That's one thing I'm still sentimental about.
