could have had hit at league min, no one else was going to sign him. He's washed up.

Not a great value signing but I can see why they do this deal. Staal provides veteran guidance to their young players and they probably had to give him extra money to stick around with a non contender.

Decent signing.

The Full NMC is strange

The fact he got another NMC alone is enough for me to vote no.

Wonder how our resident ACGM Wings fans will say this fits into Steve Yzerman's masterplan.

Learn your lesson, Staal is good defensively but is worth 1.25 max

It's a one year deal so who friggin cares, but him getting a full NMC is so funny to me.

Staal should’ve got league min imo. Also, why the heck would he need a NMC on a rebuilding team for that contract?

I get why a lot of people is saying that it's a bad deal but imo Detroit sees it as a player they know and they'll have young guys on the backend with Seider and Lindstrom, so it might be a "veteran presence" kinda thing. 2 Mil is a bit steep but It's not like Detroit needs to save cap space.

At least it's better than his last contract unsure.

This is one of the weirdest contracts I’ve ever seen I don’t know why there’s a NMC if it’s only a one year deal that’s just strange

When you trade or sign a player who was good but isn't anymore the hockey world gets split.

This is kinda the same. Marc Staal who's was getting paid everything by the Rangers was terrible. But the guy who played for Detroit last season is probably worth this. Worst case he's up at the end of next year.

The NMC is just to keep him out of Grand Rapids. If Detroit were to move him at the deadline he'd probably waive it.

I like Marc Staal. He's tough. He's physical. He plays the right way. Always liked him in NY, but he was drastically overpaid and they had to dump him. This is a solid signing. The NMC concerns me b/c of the possibility of moving him at the TDL.

Maybe the 2 mil was just a cap floor thing?

Good signing, had been hoping all season they would take another year with Staal so that he can help mentor the young guys. Watching Wings games last season he was definitely top 4 d man for the team. Putting aside his previous cost where he was overpaid, he was still a decent player. Figured may take an overpay to keep him I thought 3 M even so 2 is fine. Not sure why we care what the number is for a team with this much cap. NMC I have to think makes sense for the player as protection so he has control over where he’s playing and doesn’t get sent down

I agree but Marc probably got it so he can decide where he goes at the TDL
