  • Red Wings' Frans Nielsen: Looking at second line in Motor City

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/2/16) Nielsen, who the Red Wings acquired in free agency on Friday, is expected to line up as a second-line center - a spot previously occupied by Pavel Datsyuk - in the 2016-17 campaign, MLive.com reports.

    Nielsen signed a five-year deal that has him slated to stay in Detroit until he's 37 years old. Even though Detroit rosters several big-name forwards, including Henrik Zetterberg, Dylan Larkin and Justin Abdelkader, that power-play unit desperately needs to be improved. Case in point, the Wings went 1 for 25 with the man advantage against the Lightning in the first round of the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Nielsen should help that cause, as he averaged 0.57 points per game over his 10 years with the Isles - roughly 33 percent of that total took place on the power play. Early signs point to Nielsen remaining heavily owned in the majority of fantasy leagues next season.

    Red Wings' Frans Nielsen: Heads to Detroit

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/16) Nielsen agreed to a six-year contract with the Red Wings on Friday.

    Nielsen spent his past 10 seasons with the Islanders, amassing 20 goals and 32 assists during his most recent 2015-16 campaign with the team. The 32-year-old has been able to play at least 78 games over his last three seasons and will likely share comparable time at center with Henrik Zetterberg.

    Islanders' Frans Nielsen: Contract talks may have hit a snag

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/27/16) Nielsen and the Islanders may part ways, Brian Erni of SNY.TV reports.

    If reports are true Nielsen has turned down a contract with an AAV of $5.5 million. Would the Isles feel comfortable paying a 32-year old forward up to $6 million annually? That would seem unlikely. General manager Garth Snow may put the breaks on contract talks now and see what other offers Nielsen may attract in free agency before deciding whether or not to up his offer.

    Islanders' Frans Nielsen: Trying to work out a long term deal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/20/16) Nielsen and the Isles are working towards a multi-year contract, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

    It seems that general manager Garth Snow has decided that out of Kyle Okposo, Matt Martin, and Nielsen, the only one that might return to Brooklyn is Nielsen. The veteran two-way center is extremely valuable as he is as good in the defensive end as he is on offense and also proved that he can be a viable wing to play with John Tavares.

    Islanders' Frans Nielsen: All quiet on the contract front

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/7/16) Nothing has changed in the contract negotiations between Nielsen and the Islanders,Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

    In this case no news is not good news as the closer Nielsen gets to free agency the more likely it would seem that he will sign with another team. The Islanders could lose Kyle Okposo, Matt Martin, and Nielsen in free agency and you thought John Tavares didn't have anyone to play with last season. The Islanders team that starts the 2016-17 season could have a different look than the one that lost to the Lightning this year.
