Love this pick up.  Immediate help nown which we need badly.  And at the end of the deal our young players will have developed into top line producers and Frans can fall back to a low minute role player and key leader/mentor.  This is a good signing.

Sometimes I think Ken Holland drinks too much.  In this case, I'm not so sure.  Great pickup for a couple years.  Without the six year term we would not have him, so... I'll take it.

I'll give you 2 words to describe why this is a great deal: Leader. Ship.

Got can't put a price tag on great leaders.

Prediction: Frans scores 77 pts next year and Wings represent the East.

I would have preferred 5 years instead of 6 but the money isn't that bad. This organization has relied on the older guys to show the younger guys for years. Holland has made some frustrating moves for sure *cough Franzen cough* and that Ericsson is somehow still on the team but these moves aren't that bad. I'd still love for The Captain to come and help the wings out one more time though
