Yzerman, Zetterberg and Datsyuk will eat up much of whatever cap space is left. Maybe Dandenault is the odd man out. Being an RFA, his rights might fetch something significant... from lets say Montreal?

He's actually an UFA, a certain number of years played and under the leauge average.

While he's certainly no all star, could we really trade him and have it be an upgrade? Dandenault's fast, should be cheap, and he can play offense and defense, which is nice if someone gets injured.

The demon code prevents me from declining a rock-off challenge.

Yeah he's not Lidstrom but I'd say he's good enough for only 1.1 million

so what if he's fast... do the Wings desperately need that utility 7th defenceman? If MD is indeed a UFA then he's as good as gone. Les Canadiens would gobble him up in a heartbeat.

Yeah, probably a little late to trade him now.

If the rule stayed the same, Dandenault has to declare to be a Group VI UFA.

Until then, he's still an RFA.

Either way they are not mentioning him for a roster spot at all, same with Schneider... I think all the juggling of Dandenault and him never getting settled have hurt his value, but in a league with such watered down talent he could be a comodity with those wheels.

I'd hate to see dandy leave...he's always been speedy and hes not exactly small, so i dont think the wings will be looking to trade him...hopefully he sticks around though because its hard to find somone who can play just about any position and do it well too.

He's never scored more than 10 goals in a season. Do we really need him?

you mean except when he completely stops playing and forgets to touch up the puck on a delayed penalty thereby allowing Adam Oates to come swooping in to ****** the puck up leading to a goal?

Yeah, but neither of them well
