Two Down:  Franzen For The Next Nine Or Ten

Gotta hand it to Tick Tock.  He doesn’t mess around when he gets the guys he wants. And it’s looking like another hometown discount.


Sources say the deal is believed to be a long one, upwards of nine or 10 years in order to keep the salary cap hit to a manageable level for the Red Wings.

More as we get it.

Just for fun, we’ll keep on eye on something for you.  TSN reported the signing at 10:55.  The emperor had it at 11:09, then emailed me to rub it in after he was sure it had been posted on the main page.  We ran it at 11:14.  Malik at 11:24.  And your Diggers? 


So tell me this bitches.  Nine or ten for Franzen.  Does that mean Holland’s got the leeway to sign Hossa if 81’s being reasonable about salary?

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
