Just heard on Team 1270 that a 'reliable' source has said that there is a deal in the works that would send Datsyuk for Ryan Smyth and a high draft pick.


I'd do this deal.

With all the rumors going around, I doubt that this one is even close to being true....

Hate to say it (being a Pavel fan) but I'd go for it.

I (another Pavel fan) wouldn't go for it just for the fact that Datsuyk is a few years younger and plays the game in a way that isn't as destructive to his body. Even when Datsyuk gets older, he'll be a great player because his strengths are his vision and puckhandling.
In a few years, Smyth will be well into his 30s, and his body will be too battered for him to be anything more than an excellent role player. Look at Shanahan's development since he became a Wing, that's what I see happening to Smyth (and in his prime, by the way, Shanny was way better than Smyth).
Pavel, however, will last. Not that it matters, with unrestricted free agency coming down toward 27, but still...

Wasnt this rumor floating around yesterday but it was Hank instead of Datsyuk?
In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.

This deal would be too good to be true. No way it will happen! It makes NO sense, Edmonton can't sign Smyth to a long term deal, so they'll trade for Datsyuk? And give up a draft pick? No way! I'd build Holland a statue in front of JLA if he pulled this off......

This would be an awesome Deal for us. Henk could play center and we would get a scoring winger.
But I think also that this trade would not make any sense for Edmonton.

Ryan Smyth looks like the stereotypical hockey player, with his hoser looks and mullet. I can't see him in a Wings jersey. biggrin.gif His game is fine thought but I don't know... I'm ambivalent about him.
Finally someone that can post with actually integrity, nice to see. :thumbup: --Carman

Edmonton loves small fast players like Datsyuk, and Dats would be PERFECT with Dvorak and the other guys they have.

If we have to trade Datsyuk, this is a deal I definitely would not mind, because Smyth is asking for 3m, which is about what he's worth. Looking at the Wings' cap number and Shanahan's contract, he'd probably take 2.5-2.75 so the team could keep Zetterberg as well. Especially since it would give him a MUCH better shot at a Cup.

All that said...I don't see the deal happening.

Imagine if you would though....

Smyth/Zetterberg/Shanahan
Holmstrom/Lang/Yzerman
Maltby/Draper/Manlow
MacLean/Franzen/Mowers
Fischer/Lidstrom
Schneider/Kronwall
Lilja/Chelios

That's a pretty strong lineup. Especially with a versatile, all-around guy like Rivers to plug any hole in the roster when you want to rest someone.

I posted this yesterday in the thread: http://www.letsgowin...showtopic=29365

I hope to god we get Pavel off our plate and to someone else then this would be over and done with.
