In Topic: Forbes' NHL team evaluations

24 November 2015 - 09:23 PM

To me the disturbing part is not the valuation but the operating profit. Only $3.7M on revenue of $135M is a pitiful return that does not bode well for selling the team when the time comes. Mike Illitch (and family) has been a very generous and indulgent owner. Hope we continue to have one of those in the future.

Whatever number he signs for, people on this board will be apoplectic and then two years later will be congratulating Holland on such a sweet, inexpensive deal.

Have to say I'm surprised how many posters are opposed to the rafters for fedorov, datsyuk and zetterberg. IMO all three qualify: Feds as the most dynamic player of the 1990s and a key cog on three Cup champs; Dats as the most talented player of his generation and respected/idolized by his peers; and Z as a captain and leader and Conn Smythe trophy winner.

Interesting to note that we have six RFAs and just five open roster spots although if Franzen stays on LTIR we could sign all six. I think Andersson is closest to being on the bubble. Ferraro, amazingly, seems as if he is and should be in our plans as a fourth-liner. Never expected that to happen. No room for Zidlicky.

What does one have to do to "deserve" ice time on a particular line? IMO Babcock's plan all along has been to develop Abdelkader into a power forward, and part of that development required going head to head with the top lines on our opponents, which means top-six ice time even when he wasn't scoring at nearly a top-six pace.
