There's some talk of Dallas trading Loui Eriksson.
 
Will you give up a 1st rounder, Nyquist, and a secondary prospect for Eriksson? I would in a heartbeat


Oh wow, this would be a huge upgrade.

Loui Eriksson would just be ideal. Great cap number, great two way player, automatic 25 goals 70+ points. Swedish. 27 years old.

 

Get it done.

Because we have nobody in the pipeline that addresses any of our needs?  We have a ton of two-way skill guys and very young puck moving defensemen.  That's it.  If we want a goal scorer or a power forward we've got quite a while before any of our prospects will even be close. 

 

Goal scorers, power forwards, and elite defensemen are not a dime a dozen.  I just don't believe we should sell the farm for one player.  Look at the price on Jagr.  Would you pay that price?  So far, none of these trades are striking me as a win/win for both clubs.

Yes hard to find. That is why you move the earth to get one. For example. malkin > than our entire farm system. Players of that quality just don't stand around on every street corner. They are really rare. Horde them if you can.

Perhaps I am the only one on here that thinks Pomminville would be great in a Wings jersey. He's not big ( 6 foot, 185) so a bit bigger than Z BUT plays a physical game, its a lowish cap hit and the dude is a "score first" winger. I think he would be great with either Dats or Z!


Raising another Red Wings Fan!

The future looks bright in Hockeytown!

A buck for any Nyquist, Tater tots, Shehan, Jurco or Deke goal.
2 bucks for any Mule goal.
5 bucks for any Jimmy shut out
.50 cents for every time Chara, "Rat face" Marchant or Lucic is penalized.

Eriksson would be good.

 

White seems to be nothing for us without Lidstrom.

Gaborik or Eriksson would restore my faith in Holland.

This could be a good option as it will require less assets than Loui, and I think Pomminville could thrive here. He seriously needs a change of scenery.

well ya (me too), but at what price? I think Gabby is more realistic due to his age and the fact that he isn't on the most friendly contract right now. eriksson would be quite expensive but worth it

All this Eriksson talk... Is he even being shopped around or is everybody speculating?

 In what way does Pomminville play a physical game?  He is a perimeter player that seldom goes to the hard places to score goals.  He's a good complimentary player and I wouldn't be upset if they picked him up for a reasonable price, but I'd worry that the Wings would be adding yet another soft perimeter player when they need something different.

I really don't think a 1st is worth it for Gaborik.  He is injury prone.

 

I also think that Eriksson is going to command more of a price than that.  Probably Flip and Nyquist, 1st and 2nd.

 

I can say this much though, you aren't as delusional as most people here.  I am sure we will see the customary "OMG, Quincey and White for Eriksson" suggestions where we give up scraps for great players.

Well thanks for not calling me an idiot lol :P. but ya, I'd consider flip but he would have to be re-signed and he doesn't really match the re-build for dallas because he is 29 already. ouellet is more in line with what they are interested in. A top prospect at F, D and a 1st, 2nd is pretty good.

Heh, I wasn't going to do that.  Your offer was more generous than some of the offers I have seen.

 

The point in the end is that we will have to give up something to get something.  With as deep as the draft is going to be, is it worth it this year?  We aren't going to be contenders even if we got a top line forward and defenseman.

@CraigCustance

With Jagr and Bouwmeester gone, not sure we'll see anything of consequence coming from the Red Wings before Wednesday.
