I really don't understand the plan in Detroit right now, and I don't particularly like the way they are going about building their team. Feels like more wasted money, that hip surgery is going to be a killer. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited to see Kane reunited with DeBrincat and I don't think he'll be unplayable or anything, but I don't get it.

I’m sure it’ll be fun but Kane looks cooked. Hope he can rebound, prime 88 was a blast.

Risky signing by Detroit... signing him after hip surgery could backfire massively

I'm glad he signed with the Red Wings. I was against the Panthers signing him.

Looks like if came down to the extra nearly $2 million that Detroit offered. Seems like enough reason to me.

I frankly cant understand lopsided voting on "No", 1 year prove it deal for a future HoF with plenty of winning experience. Not to mention the overwhelming chemistry with Cat. If he struggles off the surgery so be it, but the risk-reward is favorable given it's not a long term commitment. No question a W for the team.

What is the risk? They have the cap space why not throw it at something... it's a one year deal, if it doesn't work out they can just move on in the off season. They could probably even get an asset for him at the TDL if things really go south.

I doubt Kane moves the needle for Detroit but contract wise, fairly low risk, high reward

I voted Yes because it's practically a free signing . . . even if it doesn't pan out, the risk is minimal and that doesn't make it a BAD signing.

Kane's hips becomes a major issue and affects ADB and Larkin's play (the 2 line mates Kane is probably going to play with...) and Detroit falls out of the playoffs

If he torpedo's that entire line don't play him there.....seems easy enough. They could literally healthy scratch him for the rest of season if he plays THAT bad.

Anyone who thinks this is a bad deal is just disappointed with where he chose to sign.
$2.75M is low risk for what he can potentially provide.

I'm surprised how many 'no' votes there are. I know he's had injuries, but it's a 1 year deal, and Detroit still has quite a bit of cap space to potentially add another big name rental at the deadline. And even though he didn't have a very good year by his standards last year, he was coming off of 4 consecutive seasons where he had over a point per game, and he was still on pace for 60+ points last year. If he's healthy he's easily a top-6 forward, probably a top-line forward.

And hey, if it doesn't work out, it's only 1 year.

Absolutely brilliant signing. Basically no risk, medium to high reward. If he plays well it'll be a steal for that cap hit. If he plays poorly they can keep him healthy scratch if need be. Most likely, given how they've built the lines recently, the lines will look something like:

Veleno/Fabbri - Larkin - Raymond
Kane - Compher - DeBrincat
Fabbri/Veleno - Copp - Perron
Fischer - Rasmussen - Sprong

Compher is better suited to play a more defensive role than Larkin (I could see an argument made for Copp centering the line well for this reason) but he has also proven to be able to produce quite well when given opportunities thus far. If they do this, any negative fallout would not harm the 1st line that has been working great thus far. Besides, as stated above, you can bench players if they do not perform. You didn't need to move players or picks to make this happen, the deal cannot linger for longer than the season so I think this is an absolute win for Red Wings. Sure, Yzerman can look a bit silly if Kane cannot perform but other than that? Not many real downsides.

For 1 year at 2.75M? Seems like a very worthwhile risk imo. Best of luck to Kane!

Basically, they'll know in a couple games if he's going to work out on that line. Absolute worst case scenario is his hip isn't good enough and he goes on LTIR getting paid for nothing. The only risk here is how many unfortunate people will have to buy a Little Caesers Hot-n-ready pizza to give the Ilitch family $2.75m to pay Kane to not play if he's that bad. Those are the real victims here.

Free player, unused cap space, doesnt take up a whole lot, high upside, if he doesnt work out, you have wasted a few bucks, I dont see how people could vote no, because even though his cap hit is high the impact that the cap has on the team is not significant enough to cause problems.
