Hypothetical - Crosby soon to be a Wing. Who do you give up?

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.

...then Aznknight can have this discussion internally.

Also: "it would never happen"

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.

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.

I will get fired because I will not be responsible for taking Detroit back into the dark ages....

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.

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.

Do I have any guarantee that he won't suffer a concussion?

Because if I do, then I'd make all three of those trades.

Option 3: The only guy on our list that the team from last year would miss is Dekeyser. Everyone else either didn't play, didn't play much, or can be replaced by someone better in the pipeline.

If the wings ever gave up Datsyuk or Z for Cindy Crosby I would light my car on fire and drive it off a cliff at 100 mph, into a pit of more fire. and then blow myself up in the process with 20 pounds of C4.
