Vanek a good option?! There is reason why he was bought out by Wild... It would be great addition (5 years ago). Good thing is that this is only 1 year deal

 

Come on, be realistic.  Minnesota is a team where someone as good as Parise even drops in production.  For 2.6 million, it's a solid signing.  It also allows us a chance to trade for a top D now.

I don't want to be negative for the sake of being negative, but I have a feeling tomorrow is going to be brutal for us.

It's too bad the kids play in detroit only when we're forced to play them

 

The Wings don't have any first-line future stars in the minors. This is why Detroit relies on the over-ripe philosophy. Don't people get this by now? Their young players aren't new versions of Yzerman, Lidstrom, Zetterberg, or Datsyuk. They're Doug Browns, Slava Kozlovs, Kirk Maltbys, and other good but supporting players. Expecting every prospect to blossom into an all-star is folly.

Montreal, Toronto, Buffalo and a fourth team got to make pitches in person to Stamkos this week. Detroit not one of them.

 

Pierre LeBrun @Real_ESPNLeBrun 11m11 minutes ago

I Detroit would have had its turn but Stamkos began to reel it in and focus on Re signing with Tampa Bay

 

Well that stinks... Screw him then

He said in the interview by July 3rd, he is going to spend his cap. Get randy everyone, it's going to be a summer of change!

Who is this randy you speak of and were do we need to go to get him?  ;)

RE: qualifying offers....

"The current team must extend a "qualifying offer" to a restricted free agent to retain negotiating rights to that player. Qualifying offers are for one year contracts. The minimum salary for the qualifying offer depends on the player's prior year salary.

Players who earned less than $660,000 in the previous season must be offered 110 percent of last season's salary. Players making up to $1 million must be offered 105 percent. Players making over $1 million must be offered 100 percent.

If the qualifying offer is not made, the player becomes an unrestricted free agent.

If the player rejects a qualifying offer, he remains a restricted free agent"


A different contract can be negotiated after a qualifying offer is extended to a player.

I mentioned Nielsen before, lets say we lose on Stamkos, would Nielsen, Okposo and Lucic be an upgrade for our team? The three together would probably cost about $5M more than Stamkos would alone.  Don't get me wrong, I am not saying just forget Stamkos and go for 2-3 others to make up for it, but only one team is going to get Stamkos.  I just hope that he turns us down early so we don't miss out on the others...Maybe Holland will have a good gauge early and that'll be that. If we missed out on Stamkos, I'd be ok with a couple of Nielsen, Lucic, Ladd, Okposo, etc...

 

We need an electric superstar, but all we can do is match the money and see what happens.  Can you imagine the boos he'll get in Toronto if he chooses Detroit? or Buffalo for that matter.... :lol:

 

Does anyone know the offers we tendered our RFA's? I know it was deemed "qualifying offers" but not quite sure if that is a set price based on RFA status and last years salary, or if it was a competitive offer...

there is not a chance that holland would be able to get all three. it's going to be one of the three. most likely nielson if they can't get stamkos since they really need another center

 

qualifying offers are a set amount based on last years salary. You can't negotiate a qualifying offer

Lucic is believed to be on Detroit's want list. Stamkos and Frans Nielsen are ahead of him on the list, but he's a man of interest for DRW.

So, CBS Sports did a mock expansion draft of sorts and picked Howard for the new Vegas team. 

 

Ken better move him this summer before we get nothing.

He isn't worth anything. His contract basically gives him little value. Getting rid of the contract itself would be a huge deal for this team. I'd be ecstatic to see us getting a 5th rounder for him in all honesty.

Holland needs to basically give Howard away. Ridding that contract is itself a huge win for this team. If Calgary is interested, Holland has no excuses. Get it done.

I have a feeling Detroit will have a deal in place for Datsyuk's contract with a team dependent on getting a big fish free agent to sign with Detroit. So I don't see it being traded till July 1st or after. Holland knows if he trades away good pieces and then strikes out in free agency he will be looking for another job.

If Holland does not trade Pav and Howard, he should be fired.

I've been proposing that Holland can do both moves in one swoop ... Calgary.  Flames need a starter and they have cap space.

Another reason to name the new stadium after Howe.
