With Tampa going in the tank what do you think we would have to give up even if possible to get vinny? In my opinion he is the exact sniper that the wings need.

All our star players are performing at a satisfactory level and beyond, there is no point in fixing what isn't broken.

I agree it would take 1 of those 2 to land Lecavlier, but is this something us fans would like to see?

He could very well be our missing piece; all our Cup winning teams has had @ least 1 French-Canadian on it's roster hehe.gif

I wouldn't trade Zetterberg for anyone other than Crosby himself.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

you see I think we have too many set up men and not enough good old fashioned finishers. Vinny would be perfect. Drury would have been perfect too but oh well

I don't want lecavalier, never have, and never will. I'm happy with zata and datz.

And you said it yourself Tampa is going into the tank, If lecavalier was so great he could support his team, like how zata and datz are doing for us.

it's not broken, don't fix it.

One of them would have to be involved in the deal simply to maintain a team payroll under the cap.

Kind of pointless to discuss though, I can't imagine anything close to this happening.

I would offer Huds, plus 2 draft picks. All depends on when Vinny is a UFA, if he is coming up on that status it may cost a lot less. No way Datsyuk OR Zetterberg is involved. I wouldn't trade Zetterberg for ANYBODY, not even Crosby. That would be the equivilant of us trading Yzerman for Gretzky back in the summer of 89. Illitch didn't do it then and he wouldn't do it now! Not that I am saying either of those two will be as productive as Yzerman or Gretzky (although they are well on their way.) Nor am I comparing them at this point in their careers. No way Zetterberg right now is as important to the Wings as Yzerman was, or Crosby as Gretzky was to the Oilers/Kings/blah blah blah, although the NHL is blowing Crosby every chance they get! (kinda reminds me of the whole Lindros deal in the 90's) But they are the face of their franchises at this moment and they show all indications that they will be as important,I still wouldn't trade Zetterberg for Crosby, Zetterberg plays better D...

Hmm not quite so sure on that...The way Hank is playing it would be an even trade IMO.

I'd give Datsyuk and Flip/Hudler

But it doesnt matter because it would never happen. I don't think it would help EITHER team, and Tampa is attached to Vinny. He's not going anywhere.

ok moron how have we upgraded the team that lost to the ducks in 6? No this team wont win the cup as is. I think everyone knows that. Or do you think whoever wins the presidents cup they just give them the stanley cup. It is proven every year teams that have one scoring line get shut down in the playoffs or are you new to the sport

Datsyuk, Howard, Kindl, and a 1st.

But realistically the only way Tampa ever trades Vinny is to dump salary. So they wouldn't want Datsyuk in return. Maybe Zetterberg. But there's no way Detroit makes that deal.

If Montreal offered up Higgins, Markov, Price, and a 1st they'd have a shot.

The only way Tampa Bay gets rid of Lecavalier is to dump salary and rebuild, and the Wings have nothing to offer TB in that regard. The Lightning would want a top-tier prospect and maybe even a pick or two on top of that, and the team Lecavalier would end up on would have to have big salary-cap room (Lecavalier's got 2 years left at $6.75 mil per, I believe, plus is gonna get a raise.)

Trading Datsyuk or Zetterberg for Lecavalier kinda defeats the purpose, dontcha think?
