I'll post updates as soon as I get them. No word on return yet. Maybe first rounder back so they can get Gaustad? haha

7th rounder ... boy, that's just a bit better than a bag of pucks. BUT we'll turn that 7th rounder into a Zetterberg like forward.

Maybe Holland is trying to move contracts to get less than 50 contracts signed.

Yup, would imagine that's the deal.

I posted this in the other thread, but it may also be of interest here.

Here is what I was able to type from Commie's Sportsnet interview.

Commie on SportsNet. He found out 6 min ago. He didn't expect to be traded. Has only talked to Holland, is now saying bye to the team. Believes he can be a veteran presence. Hopes to play a regular shift and get some PK time. Disappointed to leave because of the team, but he knows there isn't an opportunity for him in Detroit. He wants to play for a few more years, and hopes to play in many games this season. Being asked if he'd be open to re-sign with Tampa, Commie responded 'I just want to play. I just want to get out there and play.' He thanks Holland for seeing he didn't have a chance to play in Detroit and hopes to be able to play in Tampa. He wasn't miserable in Detroit because of his playing team. He liked the team in Detroit. Commie says, 'I'm single, no kids. I'll just pack a couple suitcases and fly south.'

There's got to be another move coming. Holland wouldn't give up defensive depth for the hell of it.

An excellent possibility. I hadn't thought of that.

Holland returning the favor probably.

Would also mean that he's trying to bring in multiple players. Maybe Roy/Gaustad?

Edit: Or, maybe not. I guess he could be trying to get a single player for pick(s).

A conditional 7th round pick? Wow, that's gotta be an ego bruiser for Commie.

Wtf!?! Guess he and Babcock could never bury the hatchet eh?

They would rather see Smith in lineup than Commie, hence the trade per Helene St. James.

Bizarre...if it was an Emmerton or Mursak I could understand it to free up the logjam at forward, but this leaves us with 6 Dmen right now

whos another depth defensemen the wings could get??? i cant imagine holland would give up without getting someone else only because he's stated numerous times you could never have too much depth on defense for the playoffs ... chris campoli??(hope not)

Why?

Big E is out for the next month, Kindl isn't much better than Commodore... I hope that Holland is going to bring someone, if not this trade doesn't make sense at all.

doesnt make sense to call up smith now and put him on the bench , unless they call him up and kindl is the odd man out again which basically would mean kindl's days are numbered

We got a pick for a fairly useless 8th DMan who is about to be a UFA. I don't think a favor was done by either team. At least we got a pick for a guy who was going to sit Til the end of the year and is we have room to trade prospects and picks for a roster player.
