Redwings were actually well below the salary cap, so they have every right to spend the money. Its not their fault they are good and players who want a Cup are willing to go there for less.
And I am not a Red Wings fan.. I am a Wild Fan, who was suprised to find out that the Wild payroll exceeded the Red Wings last season (and i feel the Wild dont spend enough money...lol)
Unbelievable. They were saying on WEEI Sports Radio yesterday that Hossa was close to signing with the Bruins.
I just noticed the Wings also sign the Penguins backup goaltender Ty Conklin to one-year deal. I take back what I said last month about Pittsburgh being my Eastern Conference pick for next years Stanley Cup Finals.
The rest of the NHL should just give up 2008-09,.
The only way Detroit doesn't repeat is if they are hit by an injury plague of epic proportions.
I don't usually agree with such statements, but I have to agree with this one.
