I'm OK with both...really think we need another Dman since Kronwall, Green, Ericsson and Daly all have injury issues and are coming up on the final year of their contracts...Kronwall may actually be done.  Dekeyser and Nemeth are the only guys with experience and no injury/illness issues

Fil is a bottom six C and he gives you the flexibility to dump a guy like Neilsen or Helm (retaining salary of course)

Not a fan of the Nemeth or Filpulla signings.  Very Holland-esque.

Not a fan at all. I don't see what Filpulla does except sit in the way and take a roster spot up from a guy who might otherwise get the call. This is a textbook Kenny move, surprisingly not made by Kenny.

I think Yzerman doesnt expect the Wings to do much the next couple of seasons. So signed a couple of placeholders for 2 years. Still plenty of spots in NHL and AHL for prospects to develop next 2 years. Then start ramping things up after that, tons of cap space should be available.

Steve Yzerman said he'd "mull over" a couple other FA signings. Said there's a spot on right wing. Said prospects will have opportunity to show readiness, but will consider adding both another forward and defenseman.

Steve Yzerman says signing Valtteri Filppula allows Red Wings coaching staff to put Andreas Athanasiou back on the wing, "his natural position." Center depth = Dylan Larkin, Frans Nielsen, Filppula.

Yeah, I think this shows the team views two more years on the rebuild as they transition into the next phase.

I don't know exactly how you figure the exact point equivalent of "500" ball in the NHL today but you would hope that is around where they are in in the '21 season.

I think Yzerman is sending a message to the young players that they aren't guaranteed any spot on the team and he wants them all to compete for 2 or 3 spots.    But if Holland had signed Flipper,  we'd be losing our minds.    I had enough of him the last time he was here, one of those guys that we thought would break through - year after year - and never did.

is it so much a message as just needing to have to bodies to fill the roster so that as you call guys up, if they struggle you can still send them back to get more development at an appropriate competition level.
