My first reaction is great signing. If Kindl continues to grow this could end up being the best contract on the team very soon. I thought he showed a lot of improvement last year, very happy with this.

Good stuff.
I didn't expect either side to commit beyond 2 years. The Wings haven't been sold on JK, and JK must have been frustrated at times with the Wings.

I like Kindl. He's never going to a great two-way guy and I think he's always going to have glaring giveaways on the breakout.

But Kronwall hasn't been very good on the PP. We could hand that job off to Kindl, who manages the blueline in a way reminiscent of Lidstrom.
We could also jack up his stats doing this.

Two years from now, when Sproul, Ouellete, Jensen, Backman and Marchenko may be ready for a job -- Kindl with a 12 goal, 50 point season and 2 years left on a great deal might have tremendous trade value.

$2.4million AAV for 4 years. I'll take it, he has shown signs of improving and is a solid top 4 defenseman for the future.

Smith, Nyquist and Andersson next....

$2.4 million cap hit for four years? I dig it.

If Kindl continues to improve this could be even better.

The cap hit pretty much confirms that Cola is gone, I'm confident they are trading him away now. I'm just hoping that we don't overpay some of our other RFA's. I feel that the number is quite high because this is locking up Kindl through his prime UFA years.

Kindl was easily the team's most improved player this season, and he has the rare gift of being able to consistently get shots on net through a crowd.

If he keeps improving from last season (Which I think he will), then I love this deal.

Pretty sure this means:

Kronwall-Ericsson
DeKeyser-Kindl
Quincey-Smith
Lashoff

Although I'd pair DD and Smith...

Signed through 26-30 years of age. Think there's a good chance we could get some value out of it.

2.4 is a great price; defensemen are basically overpaid by virtue of being a defenseman.

I think this could have been more painful; Kindl may come to regret tacking that 4th year on there at this price.

Not sure if I like it. I've never been a big fan of his & I don't think he'll get past our bottom pairing. But if the Wings believe that he will continue to develop & become a number 4, or higher, for us then I guess it's not bad.

I guess we can expect to see CC bought out soon then.

The averages seem logical, but I think Smith will be re-signed for at least 4 years.

And yesterday Smith was tweeting "I'm still here"...hmmmm

The only reason I had Smith with smaller term is because of his propensity to turn the puck over. Dunno that DET will put up with it longer than that

Great deal.

This is an investment more than anything. Give him a safe payday, and hope he turns into a 4 mil defenseman during the process.

I believe that was him venting about being stuck in an airport

I said 3x$2.25, so I was in the ballpark. This is a fair deal for both sides. They'd just better hope this season wasn't his peak.

Would CC clear waivers? With one year left at a manageable cap hit I would not be surprised to see somebody claim him.

Yeah, that's my only worry about it. That having been said; it's much easier to move a 2.4 million dollar contract when almost everyone out there with a pulse is making 3+.
