Adam Erne falls under the same category of Suter. His role on this team doesn’t fit the contract and I don’t feel his skill-set fits the talent around him. In other words, I feel whatever line he is on, he is going to hold them back.

Erne this past season played in 79 games for the Red Wings all the while only scoring six goals and having 13 assists. So, in other words, in 79 games, he had 19 total points. Furthermore, he also finished the season with a -22 which is not good. He just doesn’t really bring a lot to the table in my eyes.

Erne is still under contract with the Red Wings for this season and is set to make $2,100,000. The contract, although it’s not a very hefty contact, still feels like an overpay. Especially for what he offers the Wings. He just doesn’t bring a lot to the table and his skill-set doesn’t currently fit the direction this team is heading. Dealing him via. trade of putting him on waivers is fine by me.
