Is it time for Filppula to go? I honestly say no, I think he is a great two way player, plays hard on his shifts, and can make a play. Do I think he's the best player for the wings to trade (out of all our players without a no trade clause)? Yes, he is. Zetty, Helm, Franzen, and Filps are the only player that are possible to trade with value. Zetty, I mean, that's not happening. Same goes for Helm. Franzen (although I really wish we could trade him) unfortunately is signed until 2020 (dear god). So that obviously didn't pan out the way it was foreseen  I honestly don't think anyone would pick up his contract, there's absolutely no way. So besides prospects and picks, Filp is just about the most valued player we have to trade away. That being said, the wings aren't going to be making blockbuster moves to attempt to get a Stanley Cup run going. For now, I'd say, let's just keep this playoff streak alive by adding a decent front 6 man, trade up a couple prospects and a lower round pick. Next summer there is a plethera of UFA's, that SHOULD be our Christmas. 

 

I can't resist.  Plethera?  Don't you mean "a plethora"?  Jefe, what is a plethora?  Well you told me I had a plethora & I would just like to know if you know what a plethora is.  I would not like to think that a person would tell someone he has a plethora & then find out that that person has no idea what it means to have a plethora.

And while right now there appears that there will be a plethora of available forwards hitting the market this summer, there are no guarantees.  See Anaheim: Getzlaf, Ryan & Anaheim: Perry, Corey as two that people were salivating about hitting the open market who now won't.  And with every one that signs, the potential price to keep Flip goes up & up like a piñata at El Guapo's birthday party.

According to Khan, Filppula is looking for $5mil+ per year...if that's the case, they should trade him now while they can still get something.

Filppula will not be traded.  Kenny would not get proper value coming back for a player who is just entering his prime years.  If he goes UFA and leaves then so be it.  However I think he wants to stay in Detroit and will take less than market value to stay here.  Good top 2 centres are very hard to come by.  Even though Flip is a 40-50 point guy, he is a complete player in all 3 zones which Babs trusts.  He has not been healthy this season which has impacted his play. However I think he will be much better next season and beyond. Flip's value should be measured by more than his stats.  He does alot of little things which helps this team.  I will say this though...Usually when Kenny wants to lock a player up he does so very early before his contract expires.  He has not done this with Flip as of yet.

Well if he wants north of 5 mil a season then I can understand Kenny not re-signing him now.  I like Flip's game but he is simply not worth this salary.

Sign Howard and trade Fil.
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

Flip re-signing has nothing to do with Datsyuk. Flip won't suddenly be our number one center if Datsyuk leaves, and we can always sign a Flip replacement.

I was all for holding on to Flip until it looked like we weren't going to do anything at the deadline this year.  But if that's the case then trade him for a first, because the same old thing just hasn't been cutting it for quite a while now. 

 

This is kinda hard for me to type because I freaking love Flip, but man, how many times does your team have to make an early exit before you conclude that the "core" you have isn't as good as you think?

they won't accept that.  Flip is a rental and the Sabres aren't going to make the playoffs.  Why would they want a guy that's likely going to walk in two months if they can't even use him for a cup run?

I do like Filppula a lot but there's so many times you can watch a player continuously be a pass first forward before it's time to just try something different. We have enough playmaking forwards.

He plays soft, doesn't hit, and disappears for long stretches of time. If you aren't tough enough to battle through injuries, then you don't belong in hockey. He isn't producing and never has in line with his ability. He's insane if his asking price is accurate. I wouldn't even pay him 2 right now.

Who will play second line center if Z is still injured and Flip is traded? The Wings are still in a playoff position, and trading Flip without a healthy Z would be terrible.
