Wings trying to re-sign Filppula before the end of the season, but Filppula wants more than $5M.  :lol:


In Topic: Goalie Salaries. How much is Howard worth?

I can see Howard taking a little bit of a home town discount, but I doubt he'll let himself get rooked. I'd be very surprised if he gets less than $4mil a season from Holland. Otherwise he's a goner and the Wings can try to go through next season will Gustavsson and your choice between: Dan Ellis, Jose Theodore, Nikolai Khabibulin Peter Budaj, Evgeni Nabokov, Chris Mason, Mathieu Garon or Joey MacDonald (among others) if they can't lure Smith or Backstrom from their respective clubs...


Noooooooooo Gustavsson or really anyone else there. Show Jimmy the money

Wow, I didn't realize how fast Quick became a star. He's in his last year of the contract at $1.8M--what a steal. I see he's getting $5.8M next year, but he's definitely the most underrated goalie in terms of salary for this year.


Most overrated has got to be Cam Ward. He's 30th in GAA with 2.84. $6.3M for that is not right. Lehtonen's 2014 contract of $5.8M seems steep too. 


I would sign Howie for 3 years for $3.75M to $4.25M. He's substantially progressed IMO from 2010-11 (2.79 GAA whew!). It's pretty cool we drafted him (64th in 2003) and he's a homegrown guy (and an American). Plus, the dude's hardly ever hurt--has averaged 61 games/season (which is basically a full season since a backup should play 15-20 games). 

In Topic: anyone else kinda happy about the injuries this year?

Yeah, seeing the young guys get a chance has definitely been great. Some of them have made themselves viable trade bait/replacements for Flip and Abs, if not a sure lock for a spot on next year's team.


Tatar comes to mind for a roster spot next year. He skates his butt off every shift and is strong on the puck.


Emmerton is a serviceable fourth liner. He seems to turn it over a bit, but last night versus Edmonton he put himself in great positions for scoring chances. He probably should've scored 2 goals since he had great feeds right in the slot, but you gotta give him credit for being in the right spot and sinking one of them.
