In Topic: Gustav Nyquist signed 4-Year Deal $4.75 mill AAV

captain2005, I was using Hockey's Cap and they show Andy Miele up with us also, so not quite accurate, but I think they just list the guys that are out of exemptions until they are waived...

Fair enough. I'm new to all of this, but we all can agree we miss Capgeek though right. I just read a quote, that Holland expects to be just slightly over the cap limit after resigning Jurco and Pulks. I would love to see him move someone though, not for another player, maybe draft picks or something.

2nd highest payroll in the NHL behind Chicago...not quite sure our payroll reflects where this team is right now.  Andersson and Ferraro and Callahan will now be waived and more than likely lost for free. Sure wish Nyquist would've gotten about $1M less, but whatever. Hopefully Franzen is indeed done, then at least we won't be a cap team. Gotta get Jurco and Pulk both for under $2M together, still puts us way over...best scenario now is if Franzen is dumped to a salary floor team in need (New Jersey) just to not lose anymore of our talented kids for a concussed player.  Trade him to NJ for Future considerations and call it done. Too bad Marchenko will also probably now flee to the KHL, he already said he does not want to be in GR for another year...Too bad we couldn't dump Q and Ericsson.

Nyquist is not better than Tatar, they are two different types of players, they each bring different dynamics to the table.  This most certainly means a huge raise for Tatar, especially when/if he outscores Nyquist again the next two seasons...

For those of you putting Franzen on a line, you are hedging that he is 100%, I get it, but he is one hit away from another LTIR season, and you will have already lost your depth in Ferraro, Andersson and Callahan.  Best thing to do is send Franzen to a cap floor team and have a nice day and hope he eventually gets healthy enough to play, just not here.  His time is over in Detroit, the only thing he is doing now is taking up valuable cap space from kids getting into the NHL where they belong and will continue to do so for the next 5 years if not dealt.


I'm not sure if anything in that post was correct. http://www.spotrac.com/nhl/cap/

Not saying this site is 100% correct but we are 8th on here, with 25 players signed. Chicago is first, over the cap limit and only has 20 players. Even if these aren't 100% accurate we are definitely not the 2nd in the league, and not everything will be as negative as this post, and all your other ones indicates.

And you can't tell me you wish the Joe wasn't like that. No team could handle that type of crowd.

Apparently the Ducks can.

Ce est sans doute la série la plus intéressante pour le premier tour.
Je pense cela ira à sept jeux, mais je me sens le Tricolore aura évincer les Sens.

it isn't just the lounge that's restricted. Since I live about 6 hours from Tampa, and there just happens to be a crew from Tampa doing an install where I work, and one of the guys used to work here, I might could get a ride down and back this weekend and make Saturdays game. So I pop over to tampa site to check out Amelia Arena, and lo and behold when you mouse over seating, all seats by glass say the visiting team dress code is in effect or something to that nature. They don't want opposition jerseys being seen on tv I guess.


But I decided not to go, other things going on but also I am just so disappointed in how the team shaped up this year especially here at the end. Getting in on the next to last game instead of the last game isn't much of an improvement imo. I have probably broke 2000 dollars worth of tvs, went to games and bought hockey packages and hotels and travelled hours to see them, and I feel like fans are getting shortchanged by sports millionaires who don't perform but it's ok because "it is a business". So I am boycotting. Want my die hard loyalty? Show me you really want to win and I am not seeing that from the team or management or ownership anymore. I'm one of the ones that are negative, but like I said when you take your world class talents and give them scrubs to play with you are telling me you don't care about winning.


Sports owners need to understand just how much of a sacrifice it is for the average person to support them and help fans out. Or, just go ahead and make it your millionaires club and keep the rabble out and my white trash ass will stay at the house.
