zeterberg is 33 and hes sign till hes in his early 40s..

sedins are 34 and signed till their late 30s

dion just signed a 7year deal taking him to 36

the point is every contract is a risk, but if you dont pay your not going to easily replace what you lost..

why is it an issue to pay our home grown guys what they deserve.. take that over payment as what shouldve been given to Mcd..

the second girardi isn't on this team is the time you wish he never left.. he is not replaceable.. top pairing RHD do not come available often and are impossible to make up for what he brings..

a younger guy is not going to be as sound as G is..

5yr-30m

or 6yr-33m

or 7-35 and call it a day..

we dont sign him we will and you can almost expect to over pay even more on FA and not even get the same production back.. hes a warrior and id take on my team any day..


then this time next year we'll see new threads pop up the same as dubi and prust leaving..i really dont get it..
Perry, Getzlaf, Phaneuf, Sedins, Zetterberg, Callahan, Girardi: 2 of those players aren't like the others take a guess which two. Just because they're "core" players doesn't mean they should be given 8 year deals. All of the above players you mentioned are elite players on their respective teams hence why they were locked up before hitting free agency. Callahan and Girardi might be "core" players for us but that doesn't mean we should throw blank checks to keep them. What has this "core" done? It's time to move on
