One could, if reading too much in to it, actually suspect it's Lidström. "Trying" to sign the player, waiting for the league to "clear the deal", Holland being on the phone for hours... If you sign someone who has already filled out his retirement papers, there would proably be a lot of strings to be pulled for him to sign a new NHL deal. http://www.freep.com/article/2013012...%20Red%20Wings
I'm not saying that this is going to happen, though.
That guy is horrible. Leaf fans hated him. 1 year 850K. If Kenny drops 2 million on him he should be fired immediately.
Finger actually is a pretty solid bottom pairing guy. He hits hard and will fight, leaf fans didnt like him because he was signed to so much money as a bottom pairing type when they already had Komisarek. I live in the golden horse shoe, a lot of my buddies actually liked when he was in the lineup because he was steady back there
“Kent played an important role on a Stanley Cup winning team and knows what it takes to win,” said Doug Wilson. “He is a player that can play in all situations and does whatever is necessary to get the job done on this ice.”
