With Kubina going to the Fly Guys, and the Wings supposedly offering a package for him, who are some other blue liners we may be interested in?

I can't remember an incidence when Holland did what rumors and fans predicted/hoped/expected. His trades are always completely out of the blue. In any event, i would love to see Malone or Morrow wearing a Wings sweater next week, especially after watching the game against the sharks. We need physical, smart, effective contributors just for the occasion that we vs the sharks in the playoffs.

Also, I'm scared to death what this team will look like when Stuart is gone. I'll probably get a lot of flak for this but I think he's been our best defenseman this year, lidstrom including. It seems like he singlehandedly stops a goal once every three games, and he's the only dman we have who is really effective in the corners against players like the sharks when the cycle is established, or during a tight dump and chase. I would love for holland to pick up a defenseman with a similar playing style to Stuart.

I agree, losing Stuart will be rough. I don't think a trade now will be the best way to fix that. I think if the Wings can get a hold of Suter... it will make losing Stuart acceptable.

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.

I've always liked Sheldon Souray. He is injury prone but when healthy he is pretty damn good.
I'm curious on what it would take to get a guy like that.

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

Entirely too much money? Thats a big no thank you on my end for Souray, i'd rather observe at a distance like a lion in the wilderness.

I'd take Visnovsky, not entirely sure how realistic it is that he gets dealt within the week though. I really agree with what was said above by Echolalia, we can do all the predicting we want and the result will be a player out of left field that no one expects or was never mentioned in trade rumors.
