I don't think anything is going to happen.

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.

Maybe an Avery-Schneider type trade to get some depth at the blue line?

I'm not sure what I would do in Holland's place. I keep thinking I want to add something, but then I say who would I replace? I think Hudler would be the first to go, however he's playing fairly well at the moment. While I know the whole season is a different story, but what if he just needed a bit more time to get back into his groove from before Russia? I guess I'm just not sure what I'd want to part with or who I'd want to add.

Trade Cleary for a bag of pucks.

Send picks/ Brendan Smith/ Tatar to Columbus for Rick Nash = Cup

If only we could get Nash for picks and prospects. Columbus are guaranteed to want a guy like Filppula atleast.

According to LeBrun, Garth Snow's saying he's not thinking of trading Nabokov.

Another target off the board apparently.

Yeah, a lot of potential sellers have said for the record that they're not selling, and a lot of potential buyers are saying they're not buying - based on asking prices. Most likely pre-deadline posturing.

Will the trades happen? Doubt it. But it would be nice!

Holland is too smart to get fleeced.

I'd rather stick with what works than be Calgary and make handfuls of trades that amount to shuffling deck chairs.

I think that Holland may go after Gill or Allen for DEF depth...
Other than that maybe Moen as physical playoff presence and good PK...

Selanne seems to be the only one I think will happen, and that is dependent on Teemu wanting it.

My concern is the wings do nothing at all like they have the Past few seasons. There's no doubt wings regular season is always top notch always in play to win the presidents troPh. However come playoffs teams have us figured out. Ask San Jose. I think we have to land a scorer for one of our top two lines. teams that focus on dats and Hank will play for it. Holland hasn't done much and kept the team the same the last three seasons and we've been bounced by San jOse twice. Lost the cup to the pens. Let's try and snag a semin,parise someone.

Absolutely nothing is happening in terms of rumors or leads.

Even Eklund who makes s*** up doesn't have anything to talk about.

It is like a metaphor for the job market.

at this point Wings:
1. are well stocked in terms of prospects in minors
2. have very decent NHL regular 3rd and 4th liners
3. have all 2012 draft picks available
4. have a lot of cap space
5. would love some skilled forward for a deep cup run
6. have Nick Lidstrom in what very likely is his last season
7. are high in the standings and will approach the playoffs healthy and in good shape


if this doesn't smell like a mother-of-all-trades then I don't know what does ;) it could probably need 8. Bobby Clark is the GM to make it better :hockeysmile:


yes, I absolutely and fully expect Holland to pull a trigger for Jeff Carter or someone of this calibre. this team looks poised for a good cup run...

I can't see Holland making a trade for Jeff Carter. For these reasons...

1. Columbus would rather trade him anywhere but to a division rival like Detroit.
2. Holland would likely not want to take on another player with 10 years remaining on his contract.
3. He is coming off an injured ankle from earlier in the season. He is likely not 100% skating wise right now.
4. Holland likely wants to keep as much cap space as possible for this summer to be able to go after Parise and Suter who are UFAs.

:lol:

Or here's another scenario...

1. Holland pulls off a trade for Carter
2. Wings go on to win The Cup
3. The league avoids another lockout with a new CBA that includes a new cap structure
4. Due to the new CBA, teams have a grace period to buy out contracts to get compliant
5. Wings buy out Carter & send him on his way
6. All other teams' fans can get back to accusing the Wings of buying Cups again :hehe:
