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:

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.

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.

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.

Agreed.

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?

no. zetterberg wants to stay here for his career, he claims. crosby wouldnt.

why are so many people so confident that Crosby wouldn't want to stay here for his career?

This is all fictional anyways, but I don't get whey people are so certain he wouldn't stay.

Detroit is an original six team, finishes at or near the top of their conference year after year, is a Cup contender, and Crosby grew up idolizing Steve Yzerman.

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

Crosby is 20 years old. How good of a two way player do you think Z was seven years ago?

Voted no to both. Why mess up a good thing?

Remember that scene in Miracle? Sure it's fictionalized, but it makes a good point.

Craig Patrick: You're missing the best players.

Herb Brooks: I'm not looking for the best players, Craig, I'm lookin' for the right ones.

Yea, Vinny and Crosby are better players, and on the surface that should make you say "no duh, trade already!!" However, I just don't think either of them would fit in well with the system we have. Unless we're willing to completely change the style of play we've played for the past 15 years, then I don't think trading for them would do us much good. The fact is, on paper, both Tampa Bay and Pittsburg have more offensive tallent than the Wings, yet the wings are a better team. Why? Because we are a puck possession team with guys who know their roles. Maybe if Crosby could pull out an Yzerman and go from leading the NHL in scoring to being on the NHLs best defensive forward, maybe then it'd be worth it...but lets not break up the best duo in hockey just to cross our fingers. I'd have to vote NO at this point.

no way datsyuk for lecavalier... vinny is my my fav player to but no way for dats... tampa wants a goalies so we'll give them hasek and toss in Niklas Kronwall and maybe a prospect.... we got a good strong first line Pavel Datsyuk, Tomas Holmstrom, Henrik Zetterberg and if we get vinny he should be on second line an be with Valtteri Filppula at left and rotate Daniel Cleary, Tomas Kopecky

third line Jiri Hudler as center,Kirk Maltby, Dallas Drake

that would make one strong team
