In Topic: Holland doesn't expect to be busy this offseason

I think having a better regular season would drastically help that. We've lost to serious contenders every year other than when we were just awful against Boston. I chalk that up to inexperience though

 

We really were having a pretty good regular season for quite awhile though. The wheels did fall off down the stretch, but this team looked pretty good early on. We'll definitely be better with Green and Richards this year.

I'm just happy to see Holland taking some chances, especially after Weiss blew up in his face. You can't be scared of free agency just because some deals don't work. You've got to build first and foremost from the draft for sure, more than ever in this era. But you can't accommodate for everything in the draft. You've got to plug holes via trade and free agency. There's no guarantee these moves will get us a Cup or work out at all, but you've got to keep trying. And these deals today are pretty good ones.

 

But if these too blow up, I really will be convinced that Holland is 100% completely cursed.

Wow. Really didn't expect this.

In Topic: Alexander semin being bought out

If Holland did kick the tires on Semin, then no way should Cleary be signed or Franzen take a spot up UNLESS he is 200% healthy, not even 100% Franzen is worth gambling on. But even without those two, we still need a spot or Pulkkinen and Ferraro/Callahan. There just isn't enough room to sign a UFA.  With the wasting of Smith, tomorrow promises to be very boring for Detroit fans...

5 or 6 year deal coming for Goose 5-6.5 mil cap hit probably, maybe 4-5.5

 

No way in hell.
