Getting rid of Ericcson would be a dream but his contract is a nightmare.  I agree with the above post that we'd have to take salary back to move him.  Not that he's a horrible player, but we've got plenty of depth on D and his $4.25 cap hit could be used elsewhere.

I think you could add Franzen and his salary/production to that list of wasted money.


Yup...this team has real problems going into the 2016-2017 season which is going to at least partially offset the flexibility that should be provided by the influx of youth (and the associated cheap years) the Wings will have.

The real issue isn't what Nyquist may or may not get paid.  He'll end up getting 4.5 million at a minimum, but could very well be more.


The issue is that we have way too much dead money tied up in Howard, Ericsson, Kindl and Wiess.  Next year we have a bunch of RFA's and not enough room to sign them all.  And its not like this team is winning cup after cup so its ridiculous to me that we are going to end up with cap problems.  Way too much money tied up in a D-corp that really isn't all that special.

Some of you live in the most bipolar nightmarish dreamscapes imaginable. 
Imagine a world where Nyquist actually gets to arbitration, we walk away and sign Chris Stewart...  then the nightmare passes and then you turn your head to the other side of the pillow and we're in the fluffy candy cloud-filled world where we can trade Smith, Kindl, and Quincey for picks and land Franson.  
Never wake me up.

So true, sometimes this board drives me nuts with their pie in the sky ideas.

What is with "need" to get rid on Quincey. They guy played good last year and is a pretty good guy to be on our third pairing. I think some people have just branded him in a certain light, and it doesn't matter how he plays they will always see him that way.


I think it would just be good asset management.  We have plenty of depth at D, Quincey is unlikely to return, so why not go out and try to get a 2nd or 3rd round pick for him.
