I’ve become less and less of a fan of Ericsson but I still see the potential that the Detroit brass have always talked about. Maybe with a new coach handling the blueline this year he’ll break back out.
That said… Damn, that’s a lot of money. That’s a higher cap hit than Kronwall, making Ericsson the #3 d-man by payroll in Detroit, even though he’s slotted to be the fifth defender.
I trust Ken Holland but this is the first time I’ve really thought he made a bad deal.
