This is very interesting.

I dont know what Wood wants, but Im sure its not over the top.

With all the cap Shero has, it sounds like he is showing the players he won't overpay, which I agree with.

Players always use every advantage if they have the leverage so I'm glad Shero is doing the same.

If Wood holds out it'll do more damage to him than to the Devils.

He had 20 last year but took some dumb penalties and was awful in the Playoffs. Should have been scratched.

2 seasons ago he only scored. 8 goals 9 assists . was a -20.

In the playoffs 0 Goals 0 assists 14 PM .

2 yr bridge deal. Prove yourself.

He scored twice for the 5th and 6th goals. Anderson, Schmeltzer, Baddock and Groleau scored the others.

Devil's gave generous contracts to Severson last yr, Coleman, Noeson, Gyrba, Lappin, & Santini this yr. So why would they alienate Wood to an unfair deal? If they are working on a bridge deal for 2 yrs where we will have zero salary cap issues why not pay him a little extra in good faith for the yr that a lot of $ will kick in. 2020-2021 is when Hall, Nico & several others contracts will start paying. A 2yr bridge deal would put him due to get paid then too. I just can't see how they've been generous with everyone else but not to him. So if it's not the Devil's & it's Wood & his agent asking for to much this can turn out badly for him. There's a bunch of young guys performing very well. It's very easy to be out of the lineup & have a very hard time getting back into it. The most important thing to Hynes is locker room culture & brotherhood. If he's going to come in & start complaining about his contract in the locker room Hynes will not stand for it. Usually every time someone starts holding out over thinking he should be paid more it turns into the same thing for every contract. It's doing him no favors to be off the ice. He's only going to wind up playing less games and hurting his future pay.
I would assume he has a pretty good value on the trade market. I'd hate to see it come to that but if it is him & not the team u gotta do what you gotta do

Totally agree. He must think this is free agency where teams bid ridiculously high for you. His play is very inconsistent. I believe he's going to continue to get better and better but a 2yr prove it deal is very necessary. Would be a bad move to hold out. He'll only hurt himself & his arbitration value. If he signs a 1 yr deal he's arbitration eligible next yr

Holy (frank)poop can we pay Miles Wood and move on? Yes he’s not a perfect player but he brings a lot of what this team needs.
