Wow. Way to overpay for a guy who hasn’t even hit free agency yet guys. You’ll pay Soderberg that much, but won’t give O’Reilly a $1.5 mil raise? Crazy.

I don’t mind the moves these teams are doing compared to the ones Holland has made. I just don’t want Holland to make some kind of deal for a 38+ yr old or someone who is prone to injury. Should have never made the Weiss deal. Oh well.

At the time of the Weiss signing, it was looked at as a really good move. He was slated to be the Wings’ second line center, but unfortunately, injuries put the kibosh on those plans. Last season he put up 25 points over the course of 52 games, which would’ve been 39 points over the course of 82 games. That’s not crazy output by any means, but he’s not playing TERRIBLY, just not to expectations.

If that’s the price for Soderberg I’m glad we didn’t get him.  Can’t pay him and Weiss a combined $9.7M

Crazy.

I don’t know if I agree with that.  If, for the sake of argument, Soderberg and O’Reilly match last years’ production this year and O’Reilly wants $7.5M then you’re talking about giving O’Reilly nearly three million more than Soderberg for 11 extra points.

O’Reilly has a much higher upside, though.  He’s five years younger and one year removed from a 28 goal, 64 point season.  Soderberg is two years removed from the SHL.

In this case, Soderberg’s camp had the Avs over a barrel.  After giving up a pick for his negotiating rights, if they dont give him what he wants, theyve wasted a pick for nothing.  And as stated above, its still a huge cap break from what O’Reilly is making and what he reportedly wants for an extension.

which is the main reason I want to get Belesky or O’Reilly, as insurance against Abby’s demands in a year.
