In Topic: Frans Nielson signs 6 year $5.25m AAV contract with Detroit

Isles fans tell me he's a 50 point 2 way C who plays #1 pp and pk, while drawing the toughest defensive assignments. He's also one of the best at the shootout. Wish he was 2 years younger.

I've heard he's one of the most underrated players in hockey a couple times. If all of the above is true, getting him for $5m a season is fantastic.

Fire holland now so done with this clown.

For real. Can't blame Helm either...after Kenny hands out years like Halloween candy to Abby, you know Helm came to the table wanting 5 years.

I think he can score 30. He'll get a 2-3 year extension if he does. If not more.

That's what's scary though...if he scores 30, Kenny will give him $6m for 5 years.

The problem, to me, is what exactly are we going for?

We needed Stamkos AND a top 2 defenseman to be a legit team and we probably won't get either now. Everybody thinks the Datsyuk trade was a coo, as it was, but only if we sign anyone worthwhile.

The player I thought might drop and the type player we needed was Chychrun. Having a potential top-2 guy, a two way force on D, was too good to be true at 16. When I refreshed my page and seen that Pheonix took him, I said right there, unless we get Stamkos, this could end up really bad. Then we had to go and pick a Blake Wheeler/Mark Jankowski admitted 5 year project kid, when we needed someone now to have any hope of keeping ourselves on an upward plane.

Now, after we gambled and lost, were set up to have more of the same. A friend and I were talking earlier and wondered if we should start taking bets now on how many of the Holland-isms we will have to deal with this summer. It started when he conceded that we wouldn't be able to trade Howard...and it just seems like it's going to continue with "we reached out to this guy, we liked that guy...but in the end, prices were high and we like our team".

As mush as I didn't care for the signing, saying Alfredsson was a bust isn't fair. Alfredsson was very good for the wings while he was here.

For Real...Alfie was a great signing.
