We could trade him to a team that has no interest whatsoever in playing defense...like Edmonton. They'd get another defenseman (in name only) and all we'd ask for in return is Sam Gagner's missing teeth from the Kassian high stick. In the blink of an eye Edmonton would start winning their 6-5 debacles like last night, and we'd plant our Gagner teeth into the muddy banks of the Detroit River and, like a bean stalk, watch them grow and grow and grow.
RIP Gagner's teeth. You will be missed.
I DON'T WANNA WAIT...
Could we take Yakupov instead of Gagner's teeth? He was a healthy scratch last night.
