Forget 'it would never happen'. In Aznknight's world it does.
Here's the synopsis:
Crosby is getting traded to the Wings. Shero gives you three options and you MUST take one because Illitch says if you don't you're fired.
Option 1:
Zetterberg
Kronwall
Nyquist
1st round pick

Option 2:
Datsyuk
Dekeyser
Jurco
Sproul

Option 3:
Mrazek
Nyquist
Dekeyser
Smith
Helm


Discuss what your decision is.

My decision is to walk out of the office. I just can't justify any of those trades, regardless of the fact that it's the best player in today's game.

...then Aznknight can have this discussion internally.

I'd quit and make a public statement about the disarray or the ownership

Agreed. But that's the point of choosing the lesser of the three evils no matter how satanic the decision could be.

Of course I wouldn't do any of those trades that's why I chose them lol

Option 1. we would be dropping two aging guys with big money long term contracts. Sending a 40 point guy and a pick for a guy that outscores this group by himself. The other packages are far to heavy on prospects.

Why oh why is this a topic.  I would never want to see Crosby in a Wings Uniform.  


It's been a great honor for me to be a player for the Detroit Red Wings, to play for an Original Six franchise. I know I'm far from perfect, but I learned a lot.

I would give up every player we have over 29 years old to get Crosby. The Pens would have to take them, though.

Nyquist-Crosby-Brunner
Tatar-Helm-Abdelkader
Shehan-Andersson-Miller
Jurco-Emmerton-Eaves

Quincey-Ericsson
Kindl-Dekeyser
Smith-Lashoff

Howard
Mrazek

Someone run a capgeek on that. We probably now have lots of room to go after some big guns.

Despite being the best player in the league, I wouldn't want to give up anything good for him.
Maybe I'm putting too much importance on personality of a player but part of the reason I fell in love with the Wings was because of the type of players that they had. Crosby is every primadonna trait that I hate rolled in to one player.

I'd rather be fired than ever see Cindy in a Wing's jersey.

Honestly there are some players you just NEVER want to see in a Wings uniform and Crosby is one of them. I don't give a s*** how good he is.
