Also, why would Suter and Parise choose to come here? Nashville just proved to be better than us. There are other teams out there that have promise. s***, I think I would go to Edmonton if I were them before Detroit.


To make the team better, a threat? Money? The stability of the organization? The players? There's more that goes through a player's head when making a decision than just "HURR DURR MY TEAM JUST BEAT THEM SO I'M NOT GOING THERE LOLOLOL THEY SUCK I'D RATHER STAY HERE LAWL"

With that said, the wings haven't landed a big name FA since Rafalski and I don't even remember the last one before him. Can't imagine Kenny would get the top 2 in one offseason.

Hossa, summer 2008. This was one summer after Rafalski .

Hmmmm... according to the MLive article, Parise and Suter are good friends.

BTW TSN - Dreger is reporting that Detroit is interested in Nash...

I'd be happy if the wings picked up a guy like brad boyes or andrei kostitsyn unfortunately i see holland more likely signing someone like brunette or jason blake.

Ok, so I have thought about it some more. Here is what Ken does:
He goes to the draft, trades Hudlers rights for a top 5 pick from one of the teams. Then he turns around and packages that top pick with a prospect and franzen and trades them for Nash. Then he picks up Arnott and Suter on July 1st. Then our lines look like this:

Nash - Datsyuk - Bertuzzi
Fillpulla - Zetterberg - Cleary
Eaves - Arnott - Holmstrom
Abdelkader - Helm - Miller

Emmerton/holmstrom

Lidstrom - White
Kronwall - Suter
Ericsson - Quincey

Quincey/Smith

Thoughts?

Are you joking? hudler's UFA rights for a top 5 pick? what are you smoking?

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Everything I have read says this years draft isn't that great and hudler is player ready to play now, and is pretty decent. He would help out a team like columbus, edmonton or one of the other bottom feeders that need someone who has been deep in the season. If not a top 5 then a top 10. Its worth a gamble. What would suggest to get Nash without giving up more than one or two starters?

So you are serious? Sean Couturier was like 8th overall and look what he did to Malkin? And you think a player in top 5 would be worth Hudlers UFA RIGHTS? UFA rights are worthless seeing as teams can wait to sign them later, nobody is gonna jump off the deep end trying to acquire hudler. I assure you that THIS NEVER EVER EVER WILL HAPPEN. That GM would be fired in a heartbeat and everyone would laugh so hard.

Well if he doesn't go for it then we don't lose anything, if he does then thats on him for over reaching. Again, what would you propose to get Nash?

We won't be getting Nash within the division. The price would be like Fil, Franzen, Nyquist, and 1st for next year. Look at what they asked for from the Rangers - i think it was more than what I proposed.

Well, if Nash isn't available, then its back to this:

Parise - Datsyuk - Bertuzzi
Fillpula - Zetterberg - Franzen
Cleary - Arnott - Holmstrom
Abdelkader - Helm - Miller

Eaves/Holmstrom

Lidstrom - White
Suter - Kronwall
Ericsson - Quincey

Smith/Quincey

I wouldn't: Nyquist makes it a no go for me. If it was Tatar instead I'd probably consider it.

I bet a million dollars that Holland thinks the top six is Ok.

He's preaching lack-of-depth. Sure to s***, the only thing he'll do is add a guy like Phalsson to the bottom six and then start the media spin about a healthy Helm and Eaves, and promotion of Nyquist and Smith.

When in reality he needs to add an all star winger to the top six, two wreckers on the bottom six, a top four defenseman, and a veteran back- up.

It's obvious reading this thread that LGWers agree.

It's not even worth thinking about; unless he receives an offer of epic proportions, Howson will not trade Nash within the division.
