Interesting article:

I say expose 'em - nobody in their right mind would want them at this age. My guess is they won't. If they don't and we lose valuable young talent say, Double A, I'm going to be very pissed.

No option from my perspective. If someone picks them up it frees the Wings of one monstrous contracts, I hope. Even it if doesn't, I cannot see any valid reason that they would allow a couple of their young guys to leave in that manner.
If they do, KH should lose his head.....figuratively speaking, of course.

I don't think the Wings will have to go that far.

I think we can only lose one forward and one goalie. If !

I don't think an expansion team would like to be stuck with two big contracts own by two washed up vets.

(although Kroner was ...fair tonight )

But you know...it wouldnt surprise me to see them being expose....but they wont be picked up.

Can we expose the coach to expansion draft? The problem with 40 and 55 is the coach thinking they are in the prime of their careers instead of the tail end and -- he uses them way too much...its not 2008 anymore.

We can afford to lose a goaltender and I'd expose Howard even if he wins a cup (haha).

I'd also consider buying out those guys..Z at 7 mil again next season is a bad deal. He has 3.5 mil in 2018/19 and then hits the 1/season. Kronwall isn't that bad at 3.5 next season.

But this is Kenny Holland and he'll not do any of that, he is loyal to a fault to older veteran players who no longer can be as effective as they once were. its about what you do today, what you can do tomorrow, not what you did in the past.

We need to continue to get younger and faster...

I voted yes on both... I doubt Vegas would 'gamble' on either, especially 55.

btw= as of now, I wonder which goalie they'll expose Smiley

Expose them both. They are yesterday's heroes. We need to build for the future instead of the past.

I would not expose them out of respect. Expose Abby and Helm and pray.
