In past years I would be all for the acquisition of Tucker, but this year something isn't right with that boy...Me thinks he's got some nagging/lingering injury, & only time away from hockey will let it heal.

He makes $3 million, not $4, but maybe still a little too much (based on the way he's played this year anyway).

I think we're giving up too much there. I would give the Meech...but not Quincey.

Same here i prefer Quincey on our team in the future than Meech.

Whose spot is Tucker taking on the top 3 lines? I see him on the 4th line over Drake, but that's way too much to give up for a 4th liner.

You can either throw Drake or Malts out and put Tucks on the 2nd or 3rd line, but hopefully malts cuz i like the guy really but he is just not showing the heart anymore to play

^^^^^^

...or it could be that he's on a God-awful team.

You guys would all love Tucker if he were here. He's gritty, he can hit hard, and he'd be a pretty solid second line guy. He wouldn't be just a rental either as he has a few more years on his contract. We have a glut of defensemen so Quincey is expendable and if you want to get something of value you have to give something of value. He's like a meaner version of Cleary...perfect for a series against the Ducks.

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.

Hell no to Tucker.

If the Red Wings acquire any player from Toronto, it better be Sundin.

If there is going to be a trade we should be talking about names like Brian Campbell and Olli Jokinen!

Why do we talk about Tucker - because it's way more likely than either of these. Esp Jokinen is way too expensive.

As long was we are looking for a blue and white... why not get Boyd back? isn't he still over there lighting it up?

as much as I hate this guy I see perfect reason to have him in Wings roster.

definitely worth considering. he's such a mean a*hole that Wings could be
greatly improved with his package. he's perfect for our 2nd scoring line
(with Cleary and Franzen) or 3rd with Flip and Hudler. that would be
outstanding

Jokinen brings something to the table that the Wings really need, second line scoring. Yeah his contract is $5.25MM, but if you are going to get a rental , the rental might as well not be crap. Campbell is young and only 1.25MM and could really help the second PP unit. Tucker can hit and grind a play 9 mins a night and not do much more than that all for the exuberant price of $3MM.

Quincey? Sure have him, he's never going to be much of an NHL'r anyway. But TBH i wouldnt trade Dekader for him straight up. I see soooo many good qualities in Dekader. Sure its all raw talent atm, Id rather bank on his raw talent then give it up for a 2-3 year fodder in tucker.

Maybe Murask and Quincey, Or Emmerton and Quincey.. But Not Dekader.

I am right, this is just a suggestion, and not a rumor, correct? Its hard to tell the difference anymore. A player similar to Tucker would be fine, but he makes too much money.

Time to trade Draper for Tucker. Use Hudler in Drapers place. Get rid of him while there is value still. Tucker would be a better forward in the playoffs anyway. Hudler's ready, and he has better hands.

Forget his no trade clause, he'll waive it to go to TO, Draper's hometown.

I can't even imagine what the price would be to acquire Jokinen. The Panthers would be asking for Filpulla for sure. And if not, then prepare to open the cupboard up wide - Emmerton, Smith, Ericsson, etc would all be on their list.

We need an elite goal-scorer, not a rough and tumble grinder. If we were to get both, I would want the latter to come dirt-cheap -- otherwise we'd be taking ourselves out of contention for all of the top-shelf names on the block so that we can get a...middle-of-the-road guy? Stupid considering the kind of guy we truly need is, inherently, a big name (e.g. Hossa, Sundin).

Having said this, I think our chances of acquiring a star are looking very slim at this point in time....

- We have very few -- if any -- really juciy assets.
- Kenny is naturally averse to trading and would rather put more time and energy into re-singing our guys. In Hank's case, that means seeing to it that we have wiggle room.
- Everyone knows asking prices are going to be Absurd with a capital A across the board. Blake and Foppa have already gotten the party started. I almost shudder to think what Hossa will ultimately fetch.

In conclusion: f***.

Don't Toews me, bro!

Not a chance this would happen. I see your point but Drapes has way too much invested in Detroit to waive the clause. Besides, why would you get rid of one of the team leaders at this point in the season.

I thought we'd exterminated this topic last season.

In any event, last I checked neither Tucker nor Hudler were Selke candidates nor players with loyalty to the organization or leadership positions within the team.

Please go back to your rock.

I hope this thread is a joke. I swear the same thread pops up every year. I donít have the time nor the energy to tell you why this will never happen.
I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, I'm going to mop the floor with your face.
I said, You'll be sorry.
He said, Oh, yeah? Why?
I said, Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well.

But he would bring many assets the wings need
