Oh and yeah, sniff around Morrow as well.  Not like you have to sign Nyqvist, Anderson, and Brendan Smith with 2.3 million dollars.  WHAT Af****** JOKE!

Congrats on keeping to your plan of making the team bigger, younger,  and increasing scoring by signing a 5'11 guy who got .24 ppg last year to a 4.9 5 year deal that will take a roster spot from one of the kids going forward.  He replaced a guy who over the last two years had . 68 ppg to Weiss' .62 ppg, and was an inch taller. 

 

 An aging 5'11 guy will help that out on top of that who is really old, and got .55 ppg last year to replace a 27 year old who got .59 ppg and two more goals in his first season who you could have gotten for a lot less than 5.5 Million. 

 

Holland sure is doing a great job.  Good show old boy. Bonus, you let Val walk without trading away his rights or anything like that...

 

What a s***ty, s***ty, s***ty job he has done the last three years. If Jim Nill was the reason we draft well, this team is going to be defunct in five years.  He doesn't have the guts to make a good move, then gets into a panic and throws money into horrible contracts that hurt the team. 

 

He didn't even buy out the right freaking contracts!

In Topic: Cap might be worse than expected.

Bertuzzi does not need to be bought out if he remains on LTIR for the season. Tootoo's cap hit is miniscule; a buyout would put the Wings on the hook for a whopping (sarc) $566,667 for the next four seasons.

 

As for your salaries, I'm not sure in which universe Brunner will get $4m, Nyquist $3m, or Kindl $3.25m. It certainly isn't the one in which we reside.

 

 

This is why the capgeek thread was created!!!

 

 

I don't know where people get the notion that these "kids" are going to top $2M, I realistically do not see any of them (sans Brunner) getting more than $1.5M each...that is a huge raise for all of them from their sub-million dollar contracts they were just on...

 

With the raises you gave Nyquist, Smith, Brunner & Kindl, it's no wonder your cap is worse than expected...

 

 

And these comments, all of which illustrate that the article was not read fully are the reason why I am never on this website anymore.  

 

The point is that the cap is tight and this cap figure is what is to be dealt with for the next two seasons.  Do not expect any signings of significance.  

 

With that I am done with this site for another year.  You can read me in my blog or just trolling.

He is healthy now, I doubt they can put him on that.  

 

Also if you READ the whole thing, you will note I put that these are realistic figures based upon what people can overpay and that they are inflated but not more than the other players already signed, but they are very generous to put across the point.  Furthermore I stated that if they limit those contracts, they could get 2-5 million extra based on how stingy they are, but that this isn't going to really get us anyone special or particularly useful.  In fact much of that could go to Pavel next year who could make 3 million more than he already does.

 

Then again, you didn't read the whole thing because you couldn't wait to open your mouth and then pat yourself on the back for being internet witty on a forum.
