In Topic: Frans Nielson signs 6 year $5.25m AAV contract with Detroit

As others already stated: Nielsen is a good signing, the term however is far from ideal.

^ You can definitely put Sheahan on the 4th line. $2 million dollar 4th liner is not that expensive with the upcoming cap raise. 

 

Don't split up Z and Larkin imo.

 

Tatar - Neilsen - Vanek

Zetterberg - Larkin - Abdelkader

AA - Helm - Nyquist

Sheahan - Glendogmillionaire - Miller/Ott

 

Each line would have a defensively responsible player, a scorer and a "powerforward"

 

The third line would be one of the fastest in the NHL. Tatar likes to shoot and Vanek is the type of player that scores on rebounds. Larkin and Zetterberg have good chemistry. Helm is defensively responsible to make up for AA and Nyquist is the primary scorer on the line. 4th line would easily be better because of Sheahan's decent scoring ability, something Glendog and Miller lack. 

 

Way to early to begin line juggling given that there is probably a trade in making.

 

That said I like the look of those lines. Our first line is probably the worst of the whole league, but second and third look great. We don't have the superstar player anymore, but we have at least depth going for us. Not the worst.

Cholowski from Chilliwack. Im ok with it but Id rather they had gone center after the better dmen were gone.

 

I don't mind that at all. D-man are much harder to predict than forwards. Maybe Kenny found us another gem.

I'll never doubt Kenny again. That is a fantastic deal.
