Yet you didnt name Kindl.
Im well know for hating Ericcson. And we signed him
I actually made comments about picking up Wiz back in January thinking that would be a good grab, wouldnt pay him.
Im no bandwagon fan sir. What Holland is picking up now is a result of his lack of dealing earlier on.
RFAs are overpriced ie: Weber. UFAs need a bit of wooing and at the very least a good reason to consider the job. Holland isnt doing a good job of wooing .
We shall see how things play out but I have a bad feeling about our defense.
The only other dman of any merit who wasn't overrpaid this off season was Eric Brewer. I think Holland got the most bang for his buck as far as defensive spending (White, Commy, Big Rig). I say this and I HATE Ercissons contract but in respect to the entire situation we are better defensivily than we were last year, younger and bigger. Plus we don't know how much of a negative effect McCrimmon had on our defense and with a new D coach a lot of people will probably be quite pleased. Like I said last page though, I'd love for a big mean son of a *****, if that happens, helm/Murzak/Abby will be running people through the freakin boards.
