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

Holy crap, I honestly had no idea Mike Foligno was drafted by the Wings.  I thought he was always a Saber.  wow, that sucks.

Or how about Mike Sillinger, and his 226 post Red Wing goals? The trade was Sillinger & Jason York for Stu Grimson, Mark Ferner, and Anaheim's 6th round draft pick in 1996.

10 other teams also dumped Sillinger in one way or another. He played for 12 different teams in his NHL career.

 

Jason York may have been the better player in that one.

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...

Not to get into the Feds debate again, but I will say this.

 

2 factors into him not coming back.

1. C-bus probably wasn't trading him to a team in their division.

2 Here is where it gets tricky.

Think of the bad taste the whole Feds ordeal left in some fans, Feds is a polarizing figure, love him or hate him really no in between when it comes to Wings' fans.

Now I have to assume it left the same kind of bad taste in the Management's mouth.

 

And a "potential" (lol) 3rd reason was at that time Flip's potential was supposed to be really high and weighing a few years of Feds against Flips potential was a pretty heavy decision.

 

Sure hindsight being 20/20 you look back on it and think man they should have traded Flip for Feds, but at the time Flip still wasn't a known commodity and the thought was he was going to be a lot better.

Wow - you are right! Sillinger played for 12 teams in his career, which is pretty amazing!


or how about Mike Knuble , with 270 post Wings goals, in 2000 to the Rangers for a draft pick that became Tomas Kopecky?

Yes but with no Kopecky there would be no Hossa, and then the Wings don't win that cu.....

OH nevermind!

He had 36 goals his first season, and came in 2nd for rookie of the year behind Brian Propp.

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.

Red Kelly.

 

 

Close thread.


Marcel Dionne is the biggest.

 

After Kelly.  Kelly not only went to the Wings rival, but won four Cups playing center for the Leafs, and had his jersey honored by the Leafs.   

 

Meanwhile, the Wings didn't win squat for another 40 years.   

 

That said, his jersey should be hanging from the JLA rafters today, regardless.

Holland is a terrible GM for trading away those players.

Knuble was traded in 1998, and did not break out until the 2002-2003 season. In his four seasons after the trade, he mustered an unimpressive 42 total goals. This came on the heels of a very unimpressive season with the Wings; he played himself off of a roster that simply had very little space at the time.

You are right - my bad. The Wings received the Rangers 2000 pick, but the trade itself was in 1998. His breakout season was 2002 with the Bruins, in which he had 30 goals and 29 assists, and that was the first of his 8 straight seasons of 21 or more goals. At 6'3" and 230 lbs, he had that Shanahan-type size that we could so badly use today!

He was very unimpressive during his time with the Wings, and then with the Rangers. There was no predicting that he'd turn into a valuable player four years down the line.

 

 

He did benefit from his time with the Wings, though; he has his name on the Stanley Cup (53 regular seasons games in '97-'98), and his very first NHL game was on March 26th, 1997.

to NYR:  Joe Kocur, Per Djoos

 

to DET:  Kevin Miller, Jim Cummins, Dennis Vial

 

 

damn we sure missed that Djoos guy! :D

 

 

edit: Although, we then traded Miller for Ciccarelli the following year, so all was good.

Besides the really old time legends...not really any of the players turned into all stars or fundamental building blocks for other franchises, though. Knuble or Sillenger or Drake were pieces, not really franchise guys.

I remember seeing Vial play for the Sheffield Steelers in the British Superleague, never realised he was a former Wing, remembered him from the Senators expansion days though.


"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
