Absolutely...Any respectable agent will do what he can for his client...Unfortunately with Flip becomming a UFA - I can see a rival "poach" him by offering more.

 

A little off topic, but I was one of the few here who didn't buy into the idea that he was a 60 point guy; many thought that with last years surprising tally of 66 pts that Flip had finally become that solid 2nd line center at the tender age of 29...Now we're seeing the Flip of old (35 to 40 pts kinda guy in a 82 game season), and $5 million IMHO would be a gross overpayment, but as I mentioned earlier - someone out there will probably offer it to him.

 Yeah, the Oilers, cause they actually need a good 2-way forward like Flip.  But then again, they won't have the money either.  Flip may be singing a different tune when teams have to shed salary and everyone offers him 3 mil per for his 13 points in 29 games in a contract year.

The NHLN is now TSN, aka Man, Toronto Sure Is Awesome.

 

 

EDIT:

 

To my knowledge, Holland hasn't said big splash. "If something falls into my lap and slaps me across the face, sure. But...." = No big splash, IMHO.

 

I'd love, love, LOVE for him to make a big splash, even if it's just for the sake of making a big splash. (I'm bored, and greedy.) But I'll be incredibly surprised if it happens.

People here are dreaming if they think that Holland is going to make a big splash.  Hell, he hasn't made a big splash at the trade deadline since before the salary cap.  That really has limited what teams can do after all.  The Wings want a top 6 forward or a top 4 defenseman, and the only assets they want to trade are prospects and not the #1 pick in the draft this year.  That doesn't equate to making a splash today.

 

If I were Holland, I would trade Flip for a 1st rounder and trade Ian White for a 1st or 2nd rounder and call it good.  Lets gear up for a better season next year.

In the last 5 years there hasn't been a deal made before 9:55 a.m. on deadline day. That was in 2009. The other 4 years were all at around 10:30.


From now on, Patrick Roy will be rolled out to and from the Avs' bench like Hannibal Lecter. - BottleOfSmoke

With his production this year Flip won't garner a first, he would have last year or earlier in the season, could have got a Chris Stewart for him n the off-season (that's what I was suggesting at the time) and you definitely won't get a first for a vet d-man who has been a healthy scratch for several games

Why does anyone think Flip or White is worth a first rounder?  White wasn't even good enough to crack our top 6 for several weeks.  Flip seems uncapable of producing anything offensively this year.  Like Holland wouldn't give up Ian White for a first rounder if it was offered.

The Wings are at least two top tier players--a top 6 forward and a top 4 (or 2!) defenseman--away from advancing deep into the playoffs this year. What do people seriously think the team has to offer to acquire those kinds of players?

 

I would hate to see the team mortgage the future for rental players.

As some already mentioned - it's hard to say what Flip, or White could bring in return, but if it's a decent draft pick, or possibly a prospect - then why not look at moving these 2 guys?

How crazy would it be if the deadline was April 1st? There be so many April fools trades everyone would be going crazy. You wouldn't know which trades were legit and which weren't. I think it would be hilarious! :D

Anyways, predict 3-5 deals today... none which are huge/important significance. Even though I'd like to see some good moves!!! Com'on NHL!

Holland does not need to make a big splash, I hate to say this but the wings are not winning the cup this year. The group of guys we have are definitely capable of winning the cup, but a couple years down the line once our kids develop. The very last thing I want Holland to do is trade valuable prospects for a rental aging "star", and Holland wont do that.

 

This has been an awkward year for the wings with all the injuries that caused us to send kids up and down constantly, and the shortened season not allowing us to get in a groove. We will make the playoffs, which keeps the streak alive. Sign a defenseman and/or a scorer in the offseason, and in 3-5 years this team will have a cup. Please Holland, don't blow up our team.

the only problem with your theory is most likely in 3-5 years we won't have Datsyuk so I can't imagine we getting a cup without him anytime soon.

in 5 years, perhaps. the wings' future looks bright. 

 

that said, I (as well as everyone on here i'm sure) would absolutely love for Pav to hoist another cup before his time here is done. *fingers crossed*

The problem with your theory is teams have won the cup with out Datsyuk since 2008
