Only thing more frustrating than waiting for Parise and Suter to make up their minds is the lack of the domino effect we were promised once they finally did.
So we didn't get either big ticket Free Agent - at least they didn't go to Pittsburgh or Chicago. Because if they did?
Suter playing Duncan Keith? Parise with Kane and Toews?
How about Parise on a line with Malkin and Crosby? Sounds bad...doesn't it?
Those teams would be instant Stanley Cup Favorites. All Parise and Suter did was turn a bad team into a decent team. But they got their money and they got to be together...which...for some reason...was important.
Make the jump for more.
So we found out that Lidstrom is going to stay on as a scout...make that the Perfect Scout. Is that title already taken by Hakan Andersson? Learn from him, Nick...find us another you.
That's not really exciting news.
We also found out that Tom Renney will help Mike Babcock behind the bench.
That's a bit more exciting news...I hope he knows how to run a power play.
And lastly - the Red Wings haven't signed an NHL player to a contract in nine days. We're dying here.
There's 30 decent players out there that could help us out.
Sign somebody...I'm just as restless as you all are.
That's cause kenny is on drugs, and after actually thinking Parise wouldn't play in Minn or New Jersey (which was obvious to me itd be one of those two) he now things Doan will actually come to Detroit, so he's gonna wait forever for his decision, just for Doan to stay and by then there will be even less free agents, maybe Semin less lol. He needs to get semin
I'm not sure I would expect anything to happen while the prospect camp in Traverse City is ongoing...
I've read that with the exception of trying to sign Doan, it looks like we're going to be playing the waiting game. It was one of the million articles I read after the Parise/Suter let down so don't ask me where I read it because I don't remember.
