ESPN insider article re: Wing's deadline cap space
Posted 21 October 2011 - 12:33 PM
Also, I think GMs are cautious about the cap for 2012/2013 season and don't want to put themselves in a hole if the cap goes down. Not to mention Holland will be giving out some significant raises to our core players.
I expect no trades unless it's for a no name plug or a waiver pickup.

You're right about those guys, but a team needing to unload cap space that won't make playoffs in need of a strong center might be willing to part with a second-line scorer for someone like Flip. Or throw in a pick to sweeten the deal.
Wings won't throw in a core player for a rental player. It's not Holland works.
Filppula Won't be traded. Wings Won't get a star player. For a third line scrub last trade deadline it was costing at least a first round pick. Our first round pick last season saw us land a top six forward and a 4-5 DMan this past summer. I honestly just don't see any room for anyone at the moment. Unless we packaged Emmerton and Hudler along a mid tier pick, i don't see anyone of note being traded to us. And with the way Hudler has been playing, I don't think you trade him (Unless he really picks up his game, then we could trade him for a veteran with 3-4 years of good hockey left at the deadline). But the Wings are NOT trading for anyone 27 or under that is really good or has amazing potential. This isn't a G'damn video game.
