Why The Detroit Red Wings Need Michael Ryder - Octopus Thrower

I'd actually be fine with the Wings getting him. But, I'd rather throw a bit more money at Jagr and get him instead.

I still have a feeling that we may have not seen the last of a certain Mr. Filppula.

Red Wings will dip into shallow pool of free agents, but wary of big-money, long-term deals | MLive.com

Thought this was interesting.

NHL News

Seguin to Stars, Eriksson to Bruins in blockbuster, seven-player trade | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports
I'd argue and say that the Stars won this trade but only because of Peverley. Seguin is good but not good enough - at least not right now - to be of equal value to Eriksson. Peverley makes this a great deal for the Stars.

Well hello there! I mean still, he can't actually be leaving Ottawa? Can he?

Claude Giroux, Flyers agree to eight year, $66.2 million extension | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports

Any word on what the terms of his twin's new contract are?

Montreal adds size, signs Daniel Briere for two years, $8 million | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports

Good depth for the Wild. Good contract too.

How is Timmy Thomas on this list and not Jimmy Tiberius Howard.

I used to dislike Grabovski but I have grown to like him as time has passed. These comments make me like him even more. Go get him Kenny!

NHL unrestricted free agency is a 'different ballgame' this time around - The Hockey News
It's a much different ballgame. The money that some of these players are getting is absolutely ridiculous.

NHL free agency: Patrik Elias re-signs with the New Jersey Devils - SBNation.com
I wouldn't have mind if he had joined the Wings had he not re-signed.

Stars acquire Shawn Horcoff, as Jim Nill rebuilds centre depth in one day | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports
Seguin, Peverley, and now Horcoff. Nill is making moves, that's for sure!

Stephen Weiss Asking For How Much Per Year?! | The Hockey Writers

It's the $6 million AAV that I am worried about. He is not worth that at all.

Numbers Game: Canadiens bring in Briere | TSN
The Canadiens brought Briere in to be a scorer. He should be able to live up to that role.

Let's Go Red Wings!
