Just some guy speculating. But at least people are talking about the possibilities.
Here's a question: if we were to land "Big Buff," would you want him playing as a forward (RW) or as a defenseman? I feel we need a top-four defenseman more than we need a top-six forward, but Byfuglien might be that right-handed power forward we've wanted for so very, very long. Of course, it'd largely depend on who we'd be giving up. (For example, if Franzen goes the other way, we'd be breathtakingly small up front.) And, not to beat the dead horse here, but who would we give up?
Traded players from Wings: Kindl, Nyquist, Almqvist, Pulkkinen and a 2nd maybe? I just want to keep Smith.
