Twitter is alive with suggestion that Dustin Brown could be available.

I would very much like to add him to the Wings.

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.

LA need scoring?

Hudler (hed be a rental I know)
Kindl
Tatar

2nd round pick.

Would that do it?

Doubt they trade him though...........

That is EXTREME overpayment.

I wouldn't mind Hudler being a part of it... I doubt they would want him.

I wouldn't mind making Cleary a part of the deal. I wouldn't mind sending Kindl as a part of the deal.

Tatar would be STUPID to move for Brown.

I wouldn't mind shipping Emmerton either.

I don't know how to massage that, but I think they want to get better right now.

I really would even consider offering them Quincey for Brown.

I am not attacking you. I am just saying, I wouldn't give up Tatar.

Internet is poor for voice inflection.

Thanks for chipping in! :thumbup:

I also didn't think of Kindl until you spoke of it. I would move him for Brown, and the same goes for Hudler.

I say YES - top six forward with Right hand shot - PERFECT FIT for Zetterberg and Flip!!!


Kindl/Hudler and 2nd for Brown

That's better idea:

E/Hudler/Emmerton and the 3rd pick for BROWN.

I think the Wings need a higher scoring forward going into the playoffs. Z, Fil, and Franz do not have many shots on goal... though Z made and created many opportunities as he always does. We can use the help guys. The Canucks whom I highly dislike are going to be there as well as the Shark, Blues, and Hawks. We need more fire power up front.

Brown remainds me of Verbeek/Thomas type of players - the WINNERS.

I wouldn't mind getting Dustin Brown. Depends on what we'd have to give though. I wonder why they would want to trade him? I know they just acquired Jeff Carter but still...

i'd imagine the asking price would be high, and losing Johnson and to deal out Brown i'd assume they would seek a scoring defensemen in return at the very least. Would it be out of the question for them to try to get Visnovsky back in a deal? They shouldn't have dealt him in the first place imo.

I'd take him in a second, unless it was just a ridiculous price. He's just not one of those names I expected to be moved within the next few days if it does happen.

Did you just copy and paste the same exact thing you posted here?

LA's not going to trade their captain to Detroit with the possibility that the two teams will play each other in the first round.
In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.

Stuart was in LA before he was a wing... If he plans to leave anyway maybe a deal could be worked that includes him for Brown? As much as I want to keep Stuart for the rest of this season/playoffs at least we'd be getting something for him.

Being they traded away jackjohnson. Stuart could be part of the deal to land brown but I think it would take more.

When I heard he was available I immediately thought Holland will find a way. But since the past couple days, I don't even see the Wings making an offer.

Hurdler, Kindl, and a 2nd round pick for a franchise player like Brown just doesn't seem realistic
BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cleary, Emmerton have little trade value... They would want Tatar or Nyquist as part of a deal, along with a Top 6 player , trying to sound like im not flaming someone, but
they won't just give Brown away for our lower end roster. Would take something significant.
