Friday night game against Ovechkin and the seats are noticably empty in the lower section.

Either the scalpers are asking too much , or there gonna have to close the restaurants during play…

games seem to have empty seats during play but it is because people are distracted in the concourses by all the “Wow!” factor

Got to be nice for the opposing PK to not have to worry about Kronwall carrying it in to the zone himself

Waiving Frk won’t clear the cap space needed. Further, I think Frk has solidified his spot with the big club. Lastly, trying to demote him will likely result in him getting picked up by another club.

Best case scenario would be trading a player for a draft pick or futures for us to clear the salary space.

Note to Wings players, passing into teammates’ skates is not ideal

Washington is getting too many shots from defensive break downs on cross ice passes. Shooting from the top of the circle is going to get by Petr sooner or later.

I’m not advocating moving Frk, but thanks to Me Holland’s Opus and bad signings,  it will be interesting to see how they manage to fit AA’s salary into the roster…

Maybe Gary’s bargain basement team in the desert needs to add salary to reach the cap floor?? If so, so long Helm, Glendenning, Sheahan ....and while we’re at at…so long tatar salad.

Tatar and Nyquist are not getting anything done on the PP

That reminds me of Helm from what seems like forever ago, where he makes something out of nothing.

Tatar seems to be doing a lot of reaching for the puck lately instead of going and getting it.

Oh I know you’re not. I’m just saying it’s unlikely anything happens to Frk, simply because he’s already better than some of the other people on our roster that is paid more. We’ve lost Ferraro, Marchenko, Pulkinnen, and Frk to waivers, and managed to get Frk back last year after Carolina waived him two weeks into the season. I don’t think it’s wise to continue to play a game of chicken with our youth, despite Kenny Holland having absolutely screwed our salary cap situation up royally, and getting rid of one youngster to make room for another, is extremely counterproductive… despite that beign a Kenny Holland thing to do.

Has the Wings PK never heard of Ovechkin?

Posted by Valek from Chicago on 10/20/17 at 08:50 PM ET

You just feel it is inevitable that Ovechkin is going to score on one of those.
