Why not someone like Sydor for our 6th d-man? Or Wozniewski? Or Eriksson? Or Cullimore? Or Hutchinson? Or Strudwick? Or Hnidy? Or Mottau? Or Boynton? Or Mara? Or Eaton? Or Salei (injury could reduce his previous price-tag)

Dare I also add this name in: Schneider??? As a mentor for Ericsson and Kindl as well as a 6/7 d-man

These are all just options, I was just thinking about how we were minimizing our options down to a choice few when there are quite a few veterans with size out there who made very little before. This is pretty much that list.

I gotta say, I threw Schneider in as a joke, but imagine if he wanted to play one more season around 850k-1 mil max. He'd be pretty much the perfect idea because he can mentor the kids and be a steady hand on the 3rd pairing. He can also be thrown on the PP and be an extra cannon back there.


I talked to Sydor today. His first option kinda got canceled on him with the days events, so I defiantly through the pitch to him to go to Detroit.

Could have been discussed many times before, but I foresee with the Cap, and teams signing star players to Huge contracts over a long term to lower their cap impact, that we will see fewer and fewer years with numerous big ticket players testing the market. Even if the is a strategy we've employed, it kinda sucks in a way. It's always like a 2nd christmas seeing if we can bring in a big name or 2. But with pretty much everyone signed, this years UFA's pool etc, seems a little shallow.

A touch late, but saw the Pronger response, and despite the fact that I hate Pronger to the extreme, his comeback was pretty funny.

How about Fedde le Grande - Put Your hand Up (for Detroit)
... for anyone looking for the Sandstorm dance feel but with a bit more relevance.

I'm not positive on this. But a loooong time ago, wasn't that rule instituted because the ye old Habs PP scored too many goals on the man advantage. I mean waaay back. Just I story I thought I remember hearing somewhere.
