Aye. Firesale does not mean "trade everyone!"; it means that they're rebuilding. Rebuilding requires a core. They're trying to get rid of their crappy contracts.


Someone say core?

I'd love Burns. Or Clutterbuck.

Imagine a line of Abby-Helm-Clusterf***... nonstop hitting.

That would be nice! If Jagr is signed, then trade for Clutterbuck, you would sacrifice Hudler and Mursak or Emmerton, but to have Clutterbuck would be awesome...

Imagine a Defense with Burns/Wisniewski/Kronwall/Stuart talk about hitting! Zooie Mama!

I know this is off topic, but two avatar questions here:

@DatsYerBerger: That is Jokinen in your avatar right? What happened in the game for him to actually act like that? Thats Fu**ed.


I haven't the slightest clue and don't know anyone who does, but it's frigging hilarious, even without the waffle edit.

Zidlicky has a NMC. Also, he's 34 and makes more than $1m more than Hudler. Given the firesale and the NMC, if you place Hudler and a 3rd as Zidlicky's normal value, the 3rd can be removed. But he's not really any more expensive than guys like Burns, Schultz, or Barker. Just older.

The Wings would most likely end up with Barker if it were just Hudler being traded; Burns is the key of their defense, and Schultz is the #2 and signed for three more years while Barker turns RFA next summer.

On the note of Schultz, I highly recommend watching him to anyone that hasn't really paid attention. His numbers will never catch your eye, but he's awesome to watch play defensively; I've followed him the last handful of years. Great defensive d-man, great character guy.

Similar deal with Clusterf***. They have him cheap for two more years, and then he's an RFA. What could they gain by trading him?




Why, the awesome "potential" of Hudler, of course.

The Wings should have Eva travel around a pitch Hudler to teams maybe he could get a few to bite.

I don't see Wild selling their players off for Red Wings dead weight packaged with low picks when they can get more from other teams. I don't Holland would give up any picks anyhow.

You'd have to overpay to get Clutterbuck. He's a cult player and a fan favorite, they're not gonna give up on him easily even though he isn't anything THAT special.

At first it sounds like a genius idea but in reality that would severely reduce the chances for a trade.

It shouldn't, no. And fwiw I think Burns stays there, given the Wild tattoo he has on his back/etc.


dude got a wild tattoo on his back? that's a bit silly. hope for his skin's sake his career doesn't turn out like mike sillinge's.

Could be nice deal for both teams.The Wild need skilled forward and we need right handed PPQB and I could live with Zidlicky's $4 mil.per year for the next 2 season.

btw of course I would like to see Burns/Clutterbuck here,but trade for Zidlicky is more realistic

Well to be precise its not exactly a wild tattoo, he does have a tattoo that says he was drafted at (I can't remember his draft position offhand); plus that his back is full of tattoos of all sorts of wild animals and s***. It's pretty nuts.

Zidlicky is more realistic, but still has a NMC so it's probably not happening.

If the Wings acquire one defenseman from Minnesota, I would place the chances as such:

Greg Zanon 50%
Cam Barker 20%
Nick Schultz 15%
Marek Zidlicky 10%
Brent Burns 5%

Well written OP and agree with a lot of the content and would absolutely love to have Burns on this team but think of the following two points.

1) If I'm the Minnesota Wild and am looking to rebuild Brent Burns is not at the top of the list for moving players. In fact, he is probably #1 on the do not move list. He is relatively young and very solid and many aspects of the game. I agree that Minnesota should do something to rebuild but that makes me want to build around Burns and show him that they are serious about winning long term.

2) If I'm Brent Burns I probably love the prospect of joining the Red Wings. But, remember this... As much as Detroit is a sought after destination for many players it's not like there aren't other "hot" destinations out there. If I'm a sought after FA I want to test the waters and see what 5-8 teams that I want to go to offer me.

These are the reasons I don't see Burns going anywhere, especially this year. Next year might be a different story
