Roy to Chicago is almost a given at this point.

Burke is getting calls about Grabovski, and he could see his name on the block closer to the deadline.

Suter will not be traded, at least until July 1st.

Ben Bishop's name has been flying around lately, and the Blues could use him in a trade to gain a scoring punch. Blues' GM Doug Armstrong said, however, that the Blues will wait for the return of Steen and McDonald until they reevaluate their need for a shooter.

Expect Montreal to become sellers, but closer to the deadline.

From Darren Dreger:

Hi Darren,

Now that the Red Wings are rolling along, just wondering if Ken Holland would add anyone for the playoffs? I heard that possible players - maybe Selanne, Grabovski, Elias, Hemsky and Jason Blake? Hopefully they can add someone to help balance out the scoring!

A: Mike, Ken Holland is among the best at identifying players he knows will help the Red Wings in the playoffs. I've heard some rumblings, like the Canucks, Detroit will, or has shown some interest in Moen. I would expect the Wings would show considerable interest in Brendan Morrow if Dallas is truly listening to teams targeting the veteran centre. Hard to imagine the Stars are willing to do the Red Wings any favours, but if the price is right, anything is possible.


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.

I'm listening to the Marek vs. Wyshynski podcast from two days ago (Jan. 25) and they had Ken Daniels on as a guest. One of them asked Daniels if he expects Detroit to be active at the deadline and he said:

Yes, absolutely. Without a doubt. They could use a top-six forward, I would think. I would also think they need some size up front and I would think on the blue line they could use some size back there too and maybe another right-handed shot would probably be the preferences. So, I think there's free areas and certainly with $5 million plus to spend, a position they have not been in before, I think when you see that Nick Lidstrom's turning 42 years old, and I don't know what will happen in the offseason with who's unrestricted, and you know the name's that are out out there like Ryan Suter or what happens with him, but I think they will be active for sure. I think they want to do something, realizing that they've got a good opportunity. Why not? Look at their record. I think the only thing this team really needs is some more size up front. Beyond the Bertuzzi's and the Franzen's... they'll go for size, but a guy that can play too. They want a guy with some size who can play with some skill, not just a guy who can play for four or five minutes a game.


He also said he expects Lidstrom to keep playing unless there's a lockout.

Travis Moen's name is an interesting one. Solid player and not surprised about Morrow either getting a nod...

Heard from some people that this "rumor" was "pure fantasy" and had no chance of happening. Heard about Moen to the Canucks though.

Morrow could be moved only if the Stars fall out of playoff contention. Not much other talk during the all-star break.

Yeah my thoughts exactly, They would be pretty lethal offensively if they pulled that off.

Here's what I think the Red Wings will do this trade deadline.
-There is almost no chance the Red Wings will acquire Zach Parise or Ryan Suter before the offseason

-Tuomo Ruutu is a player that has been involved in many a rumor, but I doubt the Wings pick him up. As much as I hate to say it, I can see him going to the Sharks.

-The Wings will pick up one of Travis Moen or Brendan Morrow. One of these would be a good top-six forward for a number of years.

-Holland said he wants more depth and more grittiness on the blue line. I could see them getting a bottom-four dman, but I don't have names yet.

-Hemsky is overrated.

Ruutu's value will be overpriced at the deadline, but Moen or Morrow would be nice, if the price isn't outrageous. I think the rumor of Hemsky Sutton for Jurco and a 1 was probably something created on a fan board like HF Forums.... WIngs wont move Jurco for someone like Hemsky...

I think I remember Dreger saying the "going price" for Ruutu was like a mid-level prospect and a second rounder. But depending on how many offers Carolina gets, it might go up closer to the deadline.

As much as it'd be cool to have Hemsky and Sutton here, it's not worth Jurco and a first. Jurco could develop into something special, and Ken Holland does not want to trade his early round draft picks this year.

Moen is not a top six forward on our team. Shouldn't be on any team really. He is a good checking line guy... but honestly I don't get why everyone wants him. He is good, but he wouldn't be a significant upgrade over what depth we already have.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

agreed. trading away jurco (esspecially this early) would be dumb and it won't happen. the kid as a bright future, guarantee it.
to be honest, I'm a little surprised no one took him before we had the chance. although there was a lot of talent in the draft..

I can't see Iginla going anywhere now that the Flames brought in Cammellari. And with the Preds so hot, they won't part with Suter or Weber. I don't see us chasing a currently more or less washed up d-man in Gill, leaving the 2 most viable options Hemsky. Hemsky has had a history of shoulder in injuries and has only 4 goals this year, whereas Ruutu has 15 goals this season (placing him 3rd on the Wings roster oif he were to be moved here, after Franzen and Hudler). Ruutu has a strong physical presence and would be a great addition if Kenny Holland wants to push this team to the Stanley Cup. And at an affordable 3.8 million dollar cap hit, I would take him over Hemsky and his 4.1 million dollar cap hit any day But, I would LOVE to see Selanne come to D-Town!!!!

If Kenny Holland trades Jurco and a 1st r. pick for a player that has 4 goals on the season and is set to be a UFA, he's out of his mind.

I could totally see selanne coming here to try to win a cup before he retires. but not through trade. if anything he'll sign in the off season.. and im sure kenny would take him no problem.

The new report is Eaves has a concussion... He might not play again this season.

I imagine this as good news though, we could add someone and bring Eaves back in the playoffs when there is no player cap.
