    Actually, the more I think about this, the less sure I am that there's anything to it. I'm not saying Friedman's making stuff up, just that Holland is Holland and will do absolutely everything in his power to avoid trading a roster player. Especially a former first-round pick who's young and 6'3 and plays center and plays in all situations and seems to be one of those low-maintenance Good Canadian Boys who respecks da system. And we'd be selling low on him. And we'd be selling low on him out of necessity, due to issues that Holland has created, which might not be a great look for Holland. Holland, like any and every GM, has a massive ego. I know everyone is saying we can't sign AA without making some kind of move, and I guess that's true. But I just feel like we've been here so many times, with Holland always pulling an LTIR/waivers rabbit out of his hat. This is peak Wings fan cynicism, but I almost want to say four guys conveniently hitting LTIR at the start of the season is more likely than Holland trading Sheahan to the Penguins. Holland will probably wiggle out of this. He always does. Which is fine, I guess. I'm not really in any hurry to see any one of our players traded at this time. We'll see what happens. *shrug*

    I'd rather keep Sheahan, than trade him for Pouliot. Trade Glendening for a late pick...

    I'm not exactly high on this Pouliot fellow either. We do not need more mid-tier prospects. He was a former first rounder though like Sheahan, and younger. Maybe there's more there? Sounds like Ken and AA are only apart by 600K per right now, so I hope we don't move Sheahan just for the sake of moving him and cap space, albeit we do need it! Just remembered Sheahan has the last goal at the Joe

    I haven't really thought about what return would make sense for us. I guess Pouliot would be a worthwhile gamble, given our needs on defense. But I'm not convinced he's much better than what we have in the system. Dunno if we should be adding to the logjam, unless it's a really impressive defenseman. Maybe just a draft pick or two? Then we'd be sending money out and not taking any back. Wouldn't free up much cap space, but every bit of space counts, especially for an organization like us that's right up against the cap ceiling.

    I'm thinking maybe it's something like... To PIT: Sheahan To DET: Pouliot + a pick Not sure about the whole "deal is contingent on signing AA" bit. To me it seems like the trade would free up space to give AA what he wants. So trade first, then sign AA. Not the other way around. But I'm stupid, so what do I know.

    Good find, CRL. Friedman's about as credible as it gets, so it appears this is indeed an actual thing.

    While Tavares is saying all the right things...How can any sane person want to commit what's left of their hockey career to that sinking ship known as the NY Islanders? True enough...But how many 'top' teams will have the cap space this time next year? I'm not saying that Detroit will be his best opportunity, but when you compare us to others who might be in the running - we just might be that shining chunk of corn in the heap of turd that's left over for him to choose from.

    leaving an open curve would do that. Dang, you're older than I thought... I remember it had a single layer and drawing curves was a b.... but yeah. Good Times

    I have thought about this situation and the stance of the stakeholders. I predict 2 million x 2 years for AA, give or take 10% and the deal should happen fairly soon. I can entertain bets if someone differs wildly.

    I go back so far I still remember the days before the undo button. One accidentally un-closed line followed by use of the paint can. Suddenly days of art work are all one color. Still haunts my dreams.

    No s***! I was just pointing out that your statement was off base, but I acknowledged that it was probably just a poke at LW... I agree though, I too think that Rasmussen will be better than Tippett and worse than Vilardi. I hope he's better than both, and many of us have to eat crow for s***ting all over that pick...

    who says the GM doing the bidding for Detroit will be Holland?
