According to Sir Ansarr Khaannnn Ken Holland will be making some sort of splash at the deadline as long as we are in full stride, winning games and in serious playoff contention.

lol it actually sounds like Holland is going to be trading prospects and picks for high level talent, just hopefully not our 2013 first round pick

We don't need to trade anyone for him, just need to intice him to sign here. I wouldn't want to trade him away for anyone though. He seems to be a nick jr. to me

The scouting report on him is that he's a stay at home defender with a little offensive upside.  I wouldn't get too carried away by the Nic comparisons.

So we have to win the next 6 games in order to see a trade?

He didn't say we had to win them all, he said the next six games will likely determine whether we're in the playoffs or not, and if we are then there would be a trade.  His exact words were something like, "we need to win some games before trading makes any sense" or something to that effect.

Wow... way to take that article waaaay out of context. All it is saying is "if we are in playoff contention, a trade is possible" isn't that the case for every team every year?

Op made is sound like Kenny has a deal wrapped up with the condition that 6 games are won. (Sounds pretty ridiculous doesn't it)

We're likely to be around .500 in the next 6 games, just like the whole season.
 
Whether we make the playoffs will depend on the last two or three games, imo.  

That shouldn't decide whether Holland does or doesn't make a trade to improve this team's future.

I agree, I'm just repeating what he was saying in the interview.  Here's his words from the interview and the link if you're interested...

 

“We got to win some games first,'' Holland said Friday, prior to the game against Anaheim. “I look at the trade deadline and there's buyers and sellers and (teams that) stand pat. Those that stand pat are teams on the bubble.

“You don't want to throw a lot of assets at something (if) you're not sure you're going to (make) the playoffs. So we need to win some games.''

Kenny is saying absolutely nothing of any substance here other than basically "we'll see what happens" like he always does. Then when it passes he'll say we are saving cap room for July 1st.

Well, he is sort of stating the obvious but you can see that he's taking a smart approach.  We don't want to see the Wings mortgage the future to acquire a big name that won't really help them make the playoffs.  If they're sitting at 5-7 after the next six games then I would expect to see a trade or two.

Yeah but a couple of non rentals might really help us and given what we've got coming in a few years I'd be willing to take the chance.  Say Fanzen + 2nd for Gaborik, and Smith + Tatar + 1st for Yandle.

 

All predicated on signing Dekeyser of course.
