So a recent thread in LGW got me thinking to what people on this board actually think about Sid the Kid and Hank the Tank. Say you're Ken Holland. You wake up tomorrow and there's a message on your machine from Ray Shero. He wants to move Crosby.... There's been no drastic changes in the kids play or anything, he just wants to move him. And he's talked to Crosby and Crosby is OK with being moved. The catch? He wants Zetterberg in return. Deal or no deal?

I threw in a Datsyuk for Lecavalier as well just for kicks


EDIT: Sorry folks; apparently I are stupid and screwed up the poll and cant edit it now blush.gif

Yes, no 2nd thoughts. It wouldnt happen, but if it did, Kenny would be crazy not to say yes.

Datsyuk for Lecavalier is a no-brainer.

Yes, & Yes...My only concerns about Sid, & Vinny is their desire of wanting to stay Wings for a large portion of their careers; both Dats, & Hank (especially Hank) come across as loyal guys, & that type of loyalty ya just can't replace.

I put no on both. Hank and Dats are loyal to the Wings and as amazing as they are, they still show improvement each year.
He found the key to success 4 hours before he found the hole in his pocket.

Crosby's the best offensive player in the world, so it's hard to say no. Also, I bet the JLA would fill up real quickly if Sid the Kid was in town.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Yeah, that's really the only caveat. If they were to stay here for the bulk of their careers, it's a pretty easy decision.

Zetterberg is an awesome player and probably my favorite on the Wings, but we're talking about a 20 year old who won the Art Ross, the Lester B. Pearson, and the Hart trophy in his second year in the league.

And as good as Datsyuk is, I'd give him up for a 6'4" 225 lb center in Lecavelier who can score, pass, hit, and fight and is coming off a 108 point season.

Both our yesses and no brainers.
Aaron Downey tally = 4 Wins (Mclaren, PARROS, *Laperriere*, Wisniewski) - 1 L (**Boll**) - 5 Draws (Walker, Fedoruk, Davison, Shelley, O'Donnell)

(* = beatdown) (** = at the end of a shift)

Preseason prediction - Anaheim over Philadelphia in 6 (ok, well i'll settle for one right...)

Kudos to Teeman for the Sig

I dont care what anyone says. Until Crosby works on his defensive game, Zetterberg is the better overall player. Simple as that.

I voted no to both . Zetts is the future Captain and leader , he's a Red Wing through and through. As for the other two . i'm a very big fan of Lecavier but Dats is a one off a very unique player that gives our attack a different dimension . we'd be crazy to get rid of him .

Hahhahahahahaha hhahahahah are you kidding me??? No, no and um NO! Lets face it Crosby wouldn't make it in the west. It's a different style of play. That's like people saying Gretzky was better then Howe. Face it, there's more hitting, it's a tighter game in the west. The goalies are better and there's more travel. Hank doesn't back down from the rough stuff and isn't affraid to throw a hit.

There are so many things wrong with what you just said, that I don't even know how to analyze it.

Crosby wouldn't make it in the West? Why not? He's the best player in the World, he'd be just fine.

So Chelios and Hasek can handle the travel in the West, but Crosby couldn't?
