Someone mentioned the Kozlov / Hasek trade today, and I got to wondering about Wings players who were traded who went on to have continued or more success. I can't think of many outside of Adam Graves. People are very cautious about trading our young talent for fear they will blow up somewhere else, but who's done it?

Adam Oates!

Yeah, I should have remembered that one...anyone in the last 30 years?


Knuble, Ward, Tim Taylor, Dallas Drake, Primeau

 

Knuble and Ward are really the only of this group I would say who got BETTER, but they really had nowhere to go but up...Primeau was on the decline anyway.

Primeau was like 25 years old when he got traded. He had 26 - 34 goals in 4 out of the next 5 seasons and he was hurt in the other season out of that. Keith Primeau wasn't a hall of famer or anything, but he had successful seasons after Detoit got rid of him.

Dallas Drake, although we did get him back as a UFA.

 

That's the only one that I can think of.   The rest of the guys whose names come up when I think of "traded away" were ones who had their best years in Detroit (Sawchuck, Lindsay etc.)

 

EDIT:  Wow.  Walk away from the computer for 5 seconds and 6 replies appear ahead of mine!

The Wings wanted to take Bure in the 5th round of the '89 draft & were told he wasn't eligible due to the agreements with the IIHF.  Turned out he was eligible when the Canucks took him in the next round though.

Fleischmann and Matthias have both turned into servicable NHL players since we traded them away.

 

Avery also turned into a reasonable player before his ego destroyed his career.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Recently?

 

Fleischmann and Matthias sting a little bit.

 

Just wait until we trade Tatar as part of an Edler package :ninja:

already mentioned, but none worse than the Oates/McLean for Federko/McKegney...

 

in hindsight, it kind of re-burrs my behind that we didn't re-acquire Fedorov in 2007 or 2008 for Filppula... Fedorov could have retired where he belonged and we could have done away with 5+ years of  "reaching potential" only to lose him for nothing as a UFA...

Three that I came up with are Paul Henderson(just a few years before my watching Wings hockey), Garry Unger (averaged 30+ goals for the Blues in an 8 season span), and John Ogrodnick (averaged 25 goals a year for the Rangers over 5 seasons. We traded him to Quebec in Jan.'87, and they traded him to N.Y. before the start of the '87/'88 season.

The Blue Jackets verifiably had no interest in trading him to the Red Wings.

Larry Murphy. Not to go off topic, but I did find this and thought some might find it humourous/ironic. After the 77/78 season, Ted Lindsay(then the GM) signed free agent goalie Rogie Vachon. The Kings asked for compensation and the league awarded them Dale McCourt. McCourt refused to go, and took the league to court. When it was settled, the Wings traded Andre St. Laurent, and their 1st picks in the 1980(4th overall) and '81( 2nd overall) drafts for McCourt. The Kings picked Larry Murphy with their 1st selection in 1980, courtesy of the Wings.

Yah! Seems like the Wings have a pretty decent history of gaffs. Good thing ee also have a good drafting history.

How about this doozy in 1981: Mike Foligno, Dale McCourt, & Brent Peterson to Buffalo, for Danny Gare, Jim Schoenfeld, & Derek Smith?
