3 years for 18 million

While 6 per season is steep I like that its only for 3 years.

He will certainly help on the PP and move Ericcson to the second unit for sure. Kronwall can focus more on defense.

This is Holland's way to say "hey folks, I'm trying". Green is bad news and will not fit in the Wings locker room. Another poor attempt by Kenny.

Danny DeKeyser of Detroit Red Wings welcomes being paired with Mike Green - NHL.com - NHL Insider

Detroit general manager Ken Holland and coach Jeff Blashill have said Green will be paired this season with Danny DeKeyser, who former Red Wings coach Mike Babcock called "The Human Eraser" because of his strong defensive play.

Blashill said a Green-DeKeyser combination would be beneficial to each player.

"That's something we talked about, something we feel could be a good skill-set match," Blashill said. "We think both guys could benefit."

I'm looking forward to seeing how this plays out.

What does this even mean, lol?

Detroit needs an offensive RHD
Gives up nothing for it
Gets a top 5 offensive RHD
Mike Green's been watching tape on his d partner Danny DeKeyser. All you can ask. If healthy, expect 40 points. I'm excited.

Um, same as last year with half the salary and games? Likely in the minors. I'm not sure where you're going here.

Another shit game from Green. Can Detroit get rid of this loser by March 1, 2017? Probably NOT. He's getting $6 mil per. Loses the puck too often, too many POOR penalties, doesn't HIT anyone and HAS NOT HELPED THIS POS POWERPLAY. Washington is laughing their asses off while Holland should be FIRED.

I was at yesterday's game in MN. Jensen played blatantly worse than Green did yesterday. Not that that's an excuse for Green, but this whole D-corps is thoroughly embarrassing. From this pair of eyes, the only two that bring any resemblance of defensive stability are DeKeyser and Ouellet. The only way this team is going to improve is to cut bait with Kronwall, Ericsson, Sproul, Jensen and Smith. I think Green could be useful as a 3rd pair D-man and PP specialist, but not at $6M. I pray Holland can flip him at the deadline - for anything.

Cutting bait with Kronwall and Ericsson is not easy, though the way he is playing, you might see Kronwall retire. Hopefully we can park him on LTIR to avoid the recapture penalties at the least, though we would be exceeding the max amount we can "hide" on LTIR I think.

Sproul hasn't shown me enough to stress over, Jensen is a decent 3rd pairing guy. I do like XO, maybe a #4. DD just can't handle being a top pairing Dman, same as Green. You put those two as your 3/4 and they look a lot better with the matchups they get.

Best case scenario would be to NOT protect Kronwall and Ericsson and Vegas takes one of them in the expansion draft. The likelihood of that?... maybe 0.01%?

That 2 year extension Holland just gave Jensen makes me cringe. He's an AHL defenseman. As long as he's on the ice, this team is going nowhere. So is Sproul.

I hope Holland flips Smith before the deadline. He's not worth the money he wants in free agency and he hasn't shown any signs of being the player we hoped for when he was drafted.

Done. To the Rags for a 2017 3rd and 2018 2nd

Love the return. Got much more than I thought we would for him.
I dont think we would have resigned him anyway after the season so yeah im fine with that. However this year's draft isnt supposed to be that good so it makes since that we will have our higher pick in more than two decades...

The top rated D prospect is Timothy Liljegren - a Swede who has been often compared to Erik Karlsson. Several mocks I've seen have him landing with the Wings. I'd take that.

I would happily take a Karlsson type on this team but we are so flawed right now that I dont know how long it will take to right the ship. Bright side though we should have some money available for Free Agency in the offseason. We really need to pick a goalie and get rid of the other and just take our lumps

Well either Howard or Mrazek will be exposed to the expansion draft. Given the quality of forwards and defensemen that will be unprotected from the Wings roster, Vegas might just go that route.
