Word in TO is that Detroit is kicking the tires on Grabovski. No solid source on that though.

Campoli may go to the Hawks today. Asking price is rumored to be a second or third rounder.

Kyperos says its unlikely Grabvoski leaves by 3.

Burke will not pursue a goaltender today.

Chatter has gotten very quite the last 20 minutes. Something big maybe coming down.

Gaustad would please me. David Jones, not so much. If people accuse Gaustad as a size for the sake of size trade, what level does that put soft as butter David Jones at?

I wouldn't mind seeing Kindl or Emmerton moved for a trade. I think we have enough cover for both. Would prefer to keep Mursak however as he has more upside in my opinion and hasn't had as much chance.

Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

Would be excellent. In a right system (our system) he could be quite similar to Pav.

FWIW, I think Gaustad is a perfect fit on this team. Big, physical, character guy that wins faceoffs. Perfect plug for the 4th line, PK.

That's just it!

Do we need a 4th line upgrade?

Or do we need to add some insurance for Mr. Fish-out-of-water-i-miss-Pav Franzen?

Ditto. Blocks shots, not afraid of anybody... and he wins faceoffs. I would like him here.

I disagree the bottom 6 have been great, its the top 6 that needs the shake up.

They need both, but the market supply/demand means they likely won't get both. Hell, I'd love Nash, but unless he demands a trade to Detroit it isn't going to happen.

If Detroit ends up with just Guastad, I'll be satisfied. If they don't get him and end up with, say, Pahlsson... I am disappoint.

To be 100% honest, we need both.

The team could use an improvement at the fourth line center position. Gaustad or Ott would be optimal IMO.

110 users reading this thread. Looks like everyone is F5'ing for the latest. Only 3 more hours and 10 minutes to go.

I hope we make a deal and it involves dumping Kindl.

You're not likely to get both. Theoretically easier to get the plug on the lower line (and the special teams depth), than it is to get that top 6 scorer. Limited supply, high demand... High prices. They've already dealt their 1st this year and I can't see them dipping into 2013 without it being a major player coming back.
