AA update

Postby pokerandpucks » Tue Aug 15, 2017 1:02 pm

The lone unsigned restricted free agent on the roster is forward Andreas Athanasiou. And it’s likely to stay that way for a little while, as the Red Wings deal with the salary cap issues.

General manager Ken Holland said he’s exchanged offers with Athanasiou’s representatives as talks continue.

The Red Wings will get $3.95 million of salary-cap relief with Johan Franzen gets placed on long-term injured reserve (LTIR), but that will only leave approximately $1.4 million for signing Athanasiou (likely not enough money) and recalling a player from Grand Rapids during the season if someone goes on short-term IR.

If you only have 639 reasons you must be a casual fan.

So by waiting until right before the season to clear cap to sign AA, he will miss most of not all of camp and have almost no real chance of being ready to go game 1. Brilliant strategy

We like our AHL all-stars!

Seriously, the only enjoyment for this season will be watching AA, Svechnikov and other young guns develop.
I guess that means watching Griffins games not Wings games....sad.
