Red Wings Sign Ian White, Continue to Dominate Free Agency

Once again, Red Wings GM Ken Holland is making the rest of the NHL his bitch. Holland signed former San Jose defenseman Ian White to a 2-year deal worth just under $6 million per season. And, contrary to the ideas that the picture below gives you, White doesn’t suck.

For those that aren’t familiar with White’s game, I offer this: Brian who? White should fill Brian Rafalski’s vacant role with ease at a much lower cap hit. If he continues to put up the numbers he did in San Jose, there’s a good chance he’ll see a much longer contract offer from Holland in two years.
