I just don't get this whole depth defenseman rumor. The only way we need one is if we lose one in a trade for a forward.

Completely disagree. I know Kubina is nowhere near their level but trading for Murphy and Chelios seemed to work out. Sometimes a change of scenery is precisely what the doctor ordered. Getting depth is never a bad thing. Kindl could turn into a great defenseman, but the Babcock has said this team has 1, maybe 2 more years at the top and I doubt Kindl will reach his potential by then.

I agree plus Kubina is like 6'4" 260 pounds so two defensemen both about 6'5" and a combined 500 pounds won't hurt... As he at the top of my list, heck no lol but it is somewhat intriguing

It seems that usually when Detroit is rumored to be interested in a really questionable player, the media usually gets it wrong and Detroit is actually interested in someone else on the roster. Is there anyone that would help Detroit that might be available from TB?

Victor Hedman and Steve Downie !!!!! hopefully.

But more than likely Adam Hall & Brett Clark.

I've heard L.A. and Toronto are gunning for Malone, but I wouldn't mind seeing him in the Winged Wheel. He's a big, physical guy with a nose for the net. I'd be gunning for Steve Downie right now if I knew Tampa was shopping guys around, which could very well be the case, with Moore being shipped out for picks. Seems St. Louis, Levacalier, and Stamkos may be the only untouchables. Then again, I'm no Tampa Bay Lightning insider.

Pass on Kubina. Sure, he's big, but he turns 35 in April, and if we acquire him, that tells me he could be Stuart's replacement for next season. This team needs to get younger.

Same thing I said for forwards, the team is doing very well. Why mess with it?

Even worse is the Defense is already super deep. We have 9 guys I would trust in the playoffs.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

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.

Hell yes.

For the playoffs I'd be more than ecstatic with a top six of:
Mule-Pav-Bert
Fil-Z-Malone

Now Malone's contract is quite a pill to swallow. He may not get more points in the regular season than Hudler can at his best. But Malone can provide the role that skilled players like Fil and Z need to work their magic.

If we want a right hand shooting defenseman who can provide a little more offense from the third pairing and have a right hand shot on the 2nd power play unit, what about Marek Zidlicky?

Although he's got a few issues as well.

His contract is quite hefty. I think it would be a gamble worth taking. He's 6'4", 220. 28 points in 43 games. Just turned 32. He would be the big body up front that we have been looking for. At the same time, we should be careful not to shake things up too much, this team has been playing stellar hockey since the All Star Break. I think a move or two at most will gear us up for a playoff run.

Tampa sounds like they want to rebuild. I expect a couple more guys to be wheeled out of town before the end of the deadline. Dominic Moore is the first casualty of the rebuild under Stevie.

Yeah... <_<. Great. Another annoying forward on the Sharks who is also the brother of Steve Moore. They just got that much more annoying to play against.

Yeah, I wouldn't want him on this team. He's got quite the big mouth, and never backs it up. San Jose may have just tied Vancouver for most annoying team with this trade.

If the Wings and Sharks meet again, I can already see Bert putting up with a plethora of s*** talking the Sharks will do about the Moore incident now that Dominic is a Shark.

I don't know if they've tied Van for most annoying team. They did get rid of Setoguchi and the f***in' All-Star. I really want the Wings to beat the Sharks but I really don't want to watch another series of their dumbass tactics.

I don't know what Malone's contract looks like, but from the sporadic times I've seen him play it seems like he's a pretty good playoff performer. As long as we don't lose someone who produces more than he would, it'd be a good trade.

Tampa would be a good trading partner. We have good relations with Yzerman obviously, which helps. Of course it's a business but it's always easier to do business with someone your GM gets along with. Also, Yzerman is familiar with our prospects and might have a soft spot for a couple of them. He'd be more willing to take a risk on someone he's really familiar with than some other team's prospect who he only knows through recent scouting. It just sucks that our draft picks are basically worthless because we always draft so low.
