2nd round pick and pulkkinen for steve ott .... would anyone do it??

No, too much upside associated with Pulkkinen to trade him for a rental. Although, I'm sure Dallas would take that offer.

Well, that potentially increases names thrown out there. Vancouver's been looking at Steve Ott and Dustin Brown, too. Not convinced Detroit is looking at those two, but they'd fit the mold of what the team may be looking for (though there's always the asking price, seems a little rich for me).

I like Brown, Ott, and Gaustad. There has been a lot said about Ott's attitude on here, but IMO the A on his jersey is enough for me. I'm okay with a pest on the ice if the player is not a pest in the locker room.

I just can't imagine who the Wings could trade that would make it worth LA's while to trade their captain and one of their leading goal scorers (tied for 1st with Kopi). If LA trades away Brown Id' think it would have to be for a big offensive name.

Ah, my mistake. Still wouldn't part with Pulkkinen for Ott.

I think the trades will start to pick up around one. It seems that sellers are overvaluing their players, but the prices may have to decrease for anything to get done before the deadline.

Word coming out of Dallas is they are looking for a roster player, someone to help them now.

I'm all for taking a risk, but I don't think Ott is the kind of player you trade a top-prospect for, now if we're talking about Rick Nash my position changes.

Poile says he's "Not Trading Suter" via Pierre LeBrun on Twitter.

I'm so glad the Nash trade to Nashville didn't go through. Not only would that keep him in our division but even worse, it would likely seal the deal for both Weber and Suter to stay in NSH given their owner would essentially be giving the green light to become a cap team.

Input on why folks are pulling for Gaustad over Roy?

Different roles. While I'm sure most here would like Roy, the cost for Gaustad is likely much lower. Also, Gaustad provides grit to the bottom six.
