Vermette back to Arizona on a two year deal.

#2618468 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by darkmanx on Yesterday, 05:37 PM

He's a roster spot isn't he?

Still think playing with the hawks made him look better than he is, don't forget he's 35 and just had 37pts playing with great players

Anyways it's done, just a one year deal so I won't lose any sleep over it , just rather of added someone like a ward if we had to sign someone but whatever it's done


A roster spot that plays center. Who else is going to play there? Datsyuk is out to start the season. Injuries are going to happen this year.


Playing with the Hawks will defininetely help the stats, no doubt. He just scored 37 points, playing center. Ward only had 1 season with a higher PPG, let's also mention he is 35 years old. Ward had less points last year the Richards and got to play with Ovechkin and Backstrom.

Ward isn't going to take a 1 year deal so that's multiple years of a 3rd liner blocking our capable young guys from playing. I think Larkin gets a handful of games with us this year and next year is a regular meanwhile Sheahan takes another step forward

Oh okay, yeah that makes sense then. I guess now if we do anything more it will be via trade. But honestly, I'm fine with not trading and just going forward with this current roster.

If shattenkirk really is available. I'd trade some of our surplus for him, happily.
Or for Byfuglien, or myers.
Or Seabrook.

But yeah, were probably done.

It's laughable at how people complain about Holland doing nothing in years past, and now he goes out a makes some deals today, and some people still complain.


Holland signed one of the biggest d-man F/A's today, then picks up an UPGRADE over Weiss, for only one year, and people still aren't happy.


I'm 100% happy with what Holland did today.  Well done, sir!

We needed a veteran presence with some Championship big game winning savy. He'll be a nice upgrade over the role Cleary was hoping to fill. Still think we need to move a few and get one more solid defenseman and this day is perfect!!!

Congrats Kenny, I'll take my crow served cold thank you, didn't think you had it in you.

Now its time to move some forwards for shattenkirk and our defense will look good.

#2618354 Now for a #2 C.

Can we please sign a winger that would remove Abdelkader from the top line?  

Are you living in the past? Abby hits everything that moves, he battles for pucks goes into corners, and is coming off a 23 goal 44 point season. Not to mention this is a contract year for him, so he may even put up 55 points

25 probably? Or trade Ericsson and let him have 52 :P

Don't like this unless we are packaging multiple D in a trade package.  We just signed Smith, Kindl has no trade value and have 3 or 4 AHL players that are likely NHL ready.  Do Marchenko and Ouellet have to spend yet another year in the AHL?  I'm a little peeved but I'll reserve judgement until the off-season is fully baked.

I'm mind blown how anyone doesn't like this deal.

gotta be a trade in the pipeline with the log jam we have now, if Kenny pulls off a deal for a legit top pairing guy 

this will be one of the best July 1st weve had in years

sign Richards to a one year deal. Package a trade with a few forwards for a more defensive oriented blue liner. Richards bridges the gap for Larkin.

Maybe Quincey gets moved during the season? There is always a team that's completely decimated by injury early on in the season. Don't think he gets resigned anyways


Would much rather keep Q over E.

What's this I hear? Ken Holland actually made a meaningful and reasonable signing on July 1st? Hell I'm going to play the lottery today.
