|A source in Grand Rapids has told me that Howard will soon be up with the Wings permanently. A trade is currently in the works involving one of our goalies, and itâ€™s not Osgood. Although I donâ€™t know how close a deal is to being done, I do know that the organization is confident in Howard as a back up this season, in preparation for starting next season. The only detail I know is, itâ€™s an Eastern conference team (perhaps TBay) looking to trade a defenseman.|

I think it's way too early to dump Manny, but we do have a bit of log jam of goalies in the minors who could be shipped out. And some of them are decent prospects that could get us some return.
I still want Brendan Witt.

Anything's possible, but I don't see this happening. The Bolts are a bit short on blueline depth themselves this season, in fact, earlier this season they were shopping around for a fifth or sixth defenceman, and earlier in November GM Jay Feaster admitted he'd been closely watching the waiver wires for any blueliners other teams might cut. If the Wings do move a goalie for a d-man, I doubt the Lightning would be a trade partner.

|This is more than a rumour at this point... Aparently Tampa, Detroit, and one other team are close to closing a three way deal. All I know at this point is it involves shipping out Legace, and obtaining a defenseman...|
Your certainty about this trade is disconcerning. The thought of shipping Legace out with Ozzie in a funk and only a rookie behind him is very disconcerning. Goaltending is not a strength of this team right now, and we don't have the depth in goal to be shipping away netminders.
