    The Wings do that enough as is, so he'll fit right in...no worries!

    According to Avs fans (just asked) he loves icing the puck, so he will fit in fine on our team!

    Another former Dallas Star comes to Detroit. My double dip list grows by the day.

    Nobody is bringing up that DeKeyser is the only guy signed in 2020-2021, and Hronek and Cholowski will have less than 2 years of experience. Seider and McIsaac won't be ready.
    This year we're looking at:

    DeKeyser - Green
    Kronwall - Hronek
    Nemeth - Ericsson/Daley

    Bowey, Cholowski, and Kaski in the AHL.

    2021:

    DeKeyser - Hronek
    Cholowski - ???
    Nemeth - ???

    Bowey, Kaski, Lindstrom, Seider, McIsaac compete for two top 6 spots plus a scratch spot, or Nemeth is a scratch.

    It seems like people are disappointed? I mean, Yzerman has said patience like 150 times in interviews and appearances so far. I don't know what people expected. We're in the Lafreniere race. I don't think we're making sexy signings.

    Nor does complaining or raving about every single move.

    From Fire Holland to Fire Yzerman in record time

    It's not blind trust, he signed an experienced defensemen who is still young to a short term contract. Our defense could be very young next year if we continue with the injury problems and we likely will since a few of those players are question marks. Little to no risk on this contract... Blind Trust would be signing Gardiner to big money and hoping we somehow became a good team.

    I was just stating Yzerman isn't a rookie GM, he built a great team in Tampa and has mentored under Holland before. He has a vision, and worrying about small moves like this would be a waste of time in my opinion.... If he was throwing out huge blank cheques than I'd worry.

    They might be loading up for a strong GR developmental team. Cholo, Rasmussen, Veleno, Larsson, probably not Zadina. Maybe Seider?

    Why is everyone so sure Cholowski has absolutely no chance to make our team this year? He played over 50 games, and while he slowed down, he wasn't terrible by any stretch. He played at least decently in GR in the 25 or so games, and playoffs. I think he should be at least in charge of whether he makes it this year, and by that I mean he plays well in training camp again. Obviously with all our vets it looks likely he will be in GR to start, but everyone is speaking with such certainty on this. Really, I think he should already have a spot locked in.

    At least one of Kronwall, Green or Ericsson wont play this year, could be 2 of them. Come trade deadline it could be 3 of them.

    Nothing wrong with this for 2 years, at 27 he still has some room to grow too

    I'd rather just have Kronwall for the year.

    For the folks worrying about next year, we could work Cholo, Hronek, and even Seider (depending on where he goes, NA or DEL) in throughout the course of the season, giving them games as guys get hurt. They all get 40+ games in, then step in next year with a bit of experience under their belt. Sign a UFA or two next summer to supplement around them, and there you go. We really didn't need to sign a D for more than one year.

    I wonder if every time someone makes a counter offer he turtles "because he was dazed."

    Lots of uncertainty on the blue line after Hronek and Dekeyser. Realistically could see any of Kronwall, Daley, Ericsson, and Green retired/missing significant time next season.
