In Topic: Free agents this off season

Yesterday, 01:21 PM

 

All well and good, but Holland said so himself that players have been taking less money to go elsewhere. We offered Boyle AND Erhoff more money last year and they still went to different teams. 

 

Both players went to their respective teams due to family living in the respective cities.  A story about Boyle revealed such when it was written last year.  I believe Erhoff took the offer with Washington because his mom and dad moved there a year prior, but I can't remember the story entirely off the top of my head.  Point is that it makes sense why a free agent would want to move closer to family instead of taking more to move further away from them.

Sporsnet reports Penguins have acquired Kessel.

 

Personally, I think this is a great move.  They needed another guy to compliment Crosby and Malkin.  If you shut those power two players down, it was hard for the Pens to beat you.  Now, with Kessel, its tougher.  Provided he can get back up to where he was before he slumped.

I'd kill to make a major signing one of these days.  I want a stellar defenseman, a Vezina goalie, that kind of thing.  I want all the waiting to be really, really worthwhile.  

 

If the salary cap wasn't an issue, we would see the Wings do this.

 

I still remember the awesome high profile signings when the salary cap wasn't in place.  Man, those made for fun free agent signing periods.

Solid deal for a defenseman of his caliber.  Good 2nd pairing.
