You're really preaching to the choir here lol. Going to go ahead and reference my overrated wings management thread because I can. Holland ****ed up by signing Samulesson and Cleary, and is now majorly paying for it.
I completely agree. Tootoo cant even get picked up, and Sammy wont approve a trade anywhere. Add that onto the fact that only a few games until Nyquist cant be sent down without waivers and our cap situation...I just dont see it happening yet as much as it should.
The Wings still have too many forwards. Until they can get rid of some, Nyquist is not coming up. I think the Wings thought they would be able to move Sammy, Tootoo, and/or Eaves. They mananged to basically move Tootoo, but they didn't get much cap relief for him, so I'm pretty sure someome else will have to go when Ericsson comes back to give them more cap relief.
Tatar got Nyquist's spot and I don't understand that. Must be that poor management we have. The same poor management that has managed to get the Wings to the playoffs for 20+ seasons in row by rebuilding on the fly, instead of doing a complete rebuild. I can't understand why the Wings management would go out and sign an old supperstar that they hope can score some points and ignite the PP and also, sign an injured center that they hope will return to his former self. All they had to do was resign Flip and move Nyquist and Tatar up. Problems solved.
Cleary wasn't a bad signing. The Wings got him cheap. I seem so different from all of you. The Clearys, Drapers, Maltbys, McCartys, Kocurs, Proberts, etc. are what helps build a team. Some of you think that if everyone on the team isn't a superstar, there isn't a place for them. Really?
Ha cute little bait attempt there. Cleary is fine, but replaceable. And when he's holding back your future, you don't bring him back, plain and simple. I don't know about you but I would prefer Nyquist to not be held back for another year while Datsyuk gets a year closer to leaving.
