General manager Ken Holland is continuing talks with his other two UFA forwards, Daniel Cleary and Damien Brunner, and the negotiations are close enough that deals could still happen.
Knew this would happen. This would be a great scenario if Samuelsson, Bertuzzi and Cleary weren't coming back. But that won't happen - brace yourself for a full season of a lineup with Cleary, Samuelsson and Bertuzzi in the top 6.

Good game.

I would link to my series of articles predicting exactly this with dates on them and everything but:

A) against forum rules

B) **** it, too depressed

Wow. I can't believe they don't do anything.... i guess the upside is they plan on bringing up Jurco, Sheahan and Ferarro next year (and probably parts of this year)...... I don't know though

Clarkson wants, 7 years 6.0 million per
Horton wants, 5 years, 6.0 million per (wants to be at warm south)
Filppula wants, 8 years, 5.5 million per
Bozak wants, 7 years, 5.0 million per

This freaking market is going to be insane. Players revenge from the lockout?

I'm more frustrated with the fact that he most likely won't get rid of Samuelsson, Cleary or Bertuzzi. No reason to dump them now.

I asked St. James via twitter if the Wings' indecision on the Samuelsson buyout was related to his health or the forward glut. No response from Helene yet, but I can't imagine a scenario where keeping Samuelsson is a good idea.

At this point, if the Wings re-sign Brunner and let Cleary and Fil walk, I won't be beyond furious, unless one of the FA targets signs for something very reasonable.

I'm ok with not chasing Clarkson at those prices, and 5 years was too long on Lecavalier, although it was fun to think about.

However, I can't justify bringing Cleary and Samuelsson back next year. If they let Brunner walk and bring back Cleary + keep Sammy, I will lose it.

Keep everybody? Sign Brunner.

Mule - Z - Brunner
Bert - D - Nyquist
Akader - Helm - Sammy
Miller - Andersson - Tatar
(Eaves - Emmerton - Tootoo)

Kronwall - Ericsson
Quincey - Kindl
DeKeyser - Smith
(Lashoff)
(Colaiacovo?)

Howard
Gustavsson

This is pretty funny, but we have the guys already. Just let Flip and Cleary walk.

Still cant figure out their love affair with Sammy.

Rather use the roster space for regular roles for Tatar and Nyquist

You seriously have to wonder if Illitch is going all in on the Tigers and is telling Holland to keep the wings payroll as low as possible (but still good enough to make the playoffs to generate them big dollars)

Exactly how I'm starting to feel about her. She seems to be just getting worse and worse, when is the last time her reporting didn't just sound like Ken Holland telling her what to write?

The money is fine, the term is terrible. He's 33 and he got 5 years and a Full NMC.

I woulda went 5m per for 3 years tops.

#RedWings would have given Vincent Lecavalier $4.5 million per, but for two years, not five. Too much term for 34 YO with slow pace.
Two years. That was the problem and that was their plan. Bring the kids in after those years and the term didn't fit.

Good game.
this makes me really sad. I'm ok with us not pursuing Vinny if it meant "lets give the kids a real shot" and see what we got, versus lets keep these old vets around and not give the kids a shot.

I honestly don't get it. If we sign Weiss to a 5 yr 25 million deal too, I don't get it. Like Babcock loves size, does Holland think that Babs rather have Weiss than Vinny? I mean maybe he does, but I find it hard to believe that if Kenny said to Babs I can get you either Weiss or Vinny, that Babs is choosing Weiss

is it too late for the compliance buyouts? does that mean for sure Sammy still on the roster next season?

By next year, you mean 2014-2015, right?

This is the same song and dance we've heard and are going to continue hearing. Yay.

This is as predictable as James Cameron's Avatar.
