Same with the Sabres. Been really pleased with their offseason moves (minus buying out Erhoff). I particularly like the Gionta-Georges signing.

Wish my Wings would've signed Tatar for a couple more years instead of Quincey. Dude's fucking garbage at defense. Same with Smith.

Your D has a long adjustment period ahead of it. Kind of hard to find your bearings after one of the best defensemen in the league retired after what seemed like 50 years of solid play.

I was just looking at the Blues roster and it made me feel old.

Only Jackman and Leopold are older than me.

Crap. Well, grudging congratulations to St. Louis for holding onto Ott. I wanted my Sabres to get him back so bad.

I'm happy. He was a solid locker room presence with good on ice contributions.

However, it looks like Vlady Sobotka is going to the KHL despite getting comparable offers from the Blues. It might just be a ploy for arbitration. But I don't see how an offer from another league would sway arbitrators.

Oh yeah I know, feels like Kronwall and Ericsson are our two best d-men. Miss Liddy and Rafalski

Kronwall is a hell of a hitter but that's about all he's got. What kind of off season moves have the Wings made?

Absolutely nothing.
Besides resigning Tatar and Dekeyser which are both good resignings, we need them.
Also resigned Cleary and Quincey which is literally like throwing $5M into the sewer because they both suck.

That seems...less than helpful for you guys. Perhaps Detroit's admin is sitting on somebody in their farm system they think could bring some spark to your defense?

Word is circulating Robidas won't report to training camp for the Leafs. This is the last thing we need right now. After making it seem like Reimer was as good as gone, only to reel him back in, we need something a bit more reliable. Or at least we need more goals from Clarkson. He better grow into being worth the money we paid for him. Still neither convinced nor impressed yet.

Holdout?

From what I've seen holdouts are only a giant issue if there has been a coaching change (which I don't know in this situation).

Athletes nowadays are so meticulous that they don't need camp to get into shape. It's more about learning the system and gelling with new teammates. A veteran isn't going to be hurt by a holdout to badly unless it's a new coach/new system.

However, anecdotal evidence does tend to show that holdouts have a higher injury chance and do sometimes start slow. That might just be perception and not reality.

Yikes. Hope that situation gets resolve quickly. I don't want my Sabres to beat your boys too easily this year.
