The Wings are kind of lacking at center with Emmerton as well.

I am starting to think that the Wings are going to focus on a faceoff guy.

Never mind on Vokoun rumors. Has full NMC. Could still waive it, but has not been asked to yet.

I thought these talks died?

Maybe he is Kenny's guy

Trade deadline day is all about fluctuations in rumors. Comes with the territory unfortunately for our emotions and expectations.

New report says talks are heating up for Gaustad and Wings. Trying to confirm.

I thought they were out?

Kevin Allen ‏ @kausatoday

Red Wings are NOT acquiring Paul Gaustad.

New information? Are they back in?

Kevin Allen is really reputable so I will go with his report till an equally reputable source says talks are back on.

Craig Custance says Detroit may be the #1 player an Pahlsson right now. Sorry...now that rumor source was changed to Eklund...I no longer believe it.

it's not the most pressing need, but gastaud would help. emmerton blows and the wings could use the size and especially a faceoff specialist.

the 4th line SUCKS right now.

Which is interesting... If Washington was selling and Chicago wasn't publicly behind their netminders and not making a move, that'd seem like a good fit. I could absolutely see Vokoun waiving his NMC for that.

Holy s***... 4 of the top five trade bait guys on TSN are Detroit targets....

that doesn't bode well for us.

I don't understand? Negotiating position?

Well if they need a faceoff guy might as well just go with Konopka :D

Sammy is a very serviceable guy for the right price. Can play anywhere in the lineup, Right handed shot, knows the team, can play PP and PK, good defensively. The only reason he left is because we felt that the money was too much and who can argue with him taking a shot and going where the money was at the time.

Sporting News reported that.

Also from KuklasKorner

Update: Per Nicholas J. Cotsonika:

One report says Red Wings will not acquire Gaustad. Another says talks are heating up. Obviously they want him but only at the right price.

And the Detroit News’s Ted Kulfan:

i said this...where?

i can't wait to see the wings do absolutely nothing today. so glad they have all that cap space.

When you make comments about having lots of cap space, one can put two and two together. Comments like the above insinuate more than you realize.

You didn't come out and directly say it, but your constant criticism is not only unwarranted, its annoying.

been there done that , dont want him back ....i love that holland doesnt just trade away assets , the problem is he never takes any chances though ... if there was time to take a chance it would be now , we got cap room we have alot of good prospects and with lidstrom possibly going we have to go for it all this year .... not saying any prospect is available but id trade one for like a dustin brown type impact guy .... steve ott??? we need a nasty guy in our lineup
