As for Filppula, wouldn't be that surprised if he took a one year deal with a contender and then came back home to Jokerit since they're joining the KHL next year.

If this were to happen then, Most likely he would resign on a 1 year deal with Detroit there is no reason to sign a 1 year deal with another team. When you have already had good fortunes with Detroit.

Nashville or Calgary. Nashville could slot him in a their 1st or 2nd line center. Likewise in Calgary and additionally, he could add stability/veteran presence over the next 4-5 years of their rebuild.

He thinks he's a #1C, perhaps Nashville can make his fantasy come true.

teams expecting filppula to be a good 1st or 2nd line center are probably going to be disappointed

If his asking price goes down more teams would have interest.

not gonna happen.

Where do you get these? because he is from the region and from Jokerit? He will get a deal in NHL. Period.

Blues still have to sign both Stewart and Pietrangelo, I seriously doubt that they would have the money to sign Filppula for what he wants. Especially if Pietrangelo is looking for right around $7 million a year.

Ok dude, but why would Filppula choose KHL (Helsinki) and his brother over better pay check in NHL? plus he has american GF. I would understand that idea if he was way older.

According to Capgeek Nashville still has about $10.25m to sign 3 more players so they could do it.

Why trade for him when you can just sign him?

Dallas still possible (have Nill connection), though I won't count on it.

I have a hunch the Flames are targeting him. Any Wings fans know if he ever centered Hudler?
