In Topic: Mike Richard's Contract Terminated (Not Bought Out)

This is what the judge will say.



In Topic: Mike Richard's Contract Terminated (Not Bought Out)

The nhlpa has filed a request for an expedited hearing appealing the contract termination.


I read a story at work today where the NHLPA was gathering evidence and needed time to conduct an internal investigation before coming to a decision.  I guess their decision was to appeal.  This tells me the NHLPA did their due diligence and they feel they have a good case.  I hope the Kings have their ducks in a row. 

In Topic: Free agents this off season

2-year deal worth $3.75 million per season for Johnny Oduya & the Stars. Includes partial no-trade. Another strong off-season for Jim Nill.


Still need some D-men, Jim?  You like Kindl, right?  Ericsson? 


Its good to see Jim Nill be active in the trade market.  Lets be clear that so far, in his tenure with Dallas, he really hasn't accomplished much.


The Stars didn't even make the playoffs last year and the year before when he joined the Stars didn't even get out of the first round.


Will Niemi, Patrick Sharp and Johnny be enough to push them into the playoffs?  We shall see.

In Topic: Saad traded to Columbus

I know Wings fans wanted us to put an offer sheet in on Saad, but if Holland would have paid him $6 a season for 6 years, I would have been furious.

I think we did good today, improved the roster, hopefully we can break the round 1 ceiling and at least get into 2nd round.  


That wouldn't be enough for most Wings fans.  You forget the general consensus around here is cup or bust.  If we get booted the first round, its a failure and people want to see a deeper run.  Make it to the 2nd or 3rd round, then its a failure because they should have made more changes to at least make it to the finals.  Make it to the finals and lose, then Holland will be blamed for not getting that last key piece to put them over the top, and its a failure.
