I think they'd move him. They're apparently thick with defense prospects and Letang isn't playing that well. Plus he makes a fortune. I could definitely see them trying to get out from under that cap hit, it's WAY too much for Letang (7.2 million).

Which brings me to my second point. No way do the Wings trade for a guy who makes more than Datsyuk or Zetterberg. I just don't see it.

Just kicking the tires I suppose. Maybe pens will retain some salary they certainly don't have any leverage trying to move that huge contract. Although it makes no sense to deal him before the offseason Edited by joesuffP

Wings have two scouts at the ilanders penguins game

My guess is theyre looking at letang and or vanek.

Or they're scouting teams in their conference for future games.

Well that certainly makes me feel optimistic...until they crush my dreams that is. But until then I'm going to foolishly hope that we're trading for Okposo.

They mentioned this as part of their conversation of whether Vanek stays or goes

I'd count Sheahan and Jurco as two big acquisitions. I'm surprised more people don't feel this way. Here's two rookie call-ups who didn't even factor into our plans for this season and they're holding their own 1) on the second line, 2) against the best of the West, and 3) without the aid of Datsyuk, Franzen, and Alfredsson. As Babs would say: Good for them, better for us. And now it looks like we might have a really dynamic line in Tatar-Sheahan-Jurco. So, basically, we've made a seemingly serviceable second line out of Tatar and two empty roster spots. You know what that means for us? Depth. Options. Possibilities. If we can get fully healthy, we could conceivably play Z and D together and still be able to ice three legitimate scoring lines.

2 birds 1 stone

My sentiments exactly.

And I can't call jurco and sheahan acquisitions at this point.

They've been awesome, but when we get healthy were not gonna be able to keep them up barring some sort of movement.

Well, yeah, the reality is that they're gonna be sent down. But it doesn't have to be that way! Well, yeah, I guess it sort of does. And yet, not necessarily! Subtract Cleary, Bertuzzi, and let's say Andersson and our twelve could be Abdelkader, Alfredsson, Datsyuk, Franzen, Helm, Jurco, Nyquist, Miller, Sheahan, Tatar, Weiss, Zetterberg.

That's a beautiful thing.

Hopefully the brass can figure out some way to make that work.

what about volchenkov?

wasnt there rumblings he was on the block?

{kindl}, (emmerton), (tootoo),*sammy*,(andersson),{glendening},{lashoff},(quincey),*cleary*

cap, schmap.

make it happen kenny!

every trade has {one positive}, (one question), and *one negative*, so lets give them options!

I absolutely love Anton Volchenkov, always have. But he makes way more money (4.25 million) than he's worth at this point in his career. The only way I'd consider it is if the Devils were willing to retain some salary.

Plus he really doesn't help our transition woes, which in my opinion is the biggest shortfall of our defense. At this point he's a third pair stay at home guy, with excellent penalty killing skills. We really don't need that at this point as Lashoff, Ericsson, and Kronwall all kill penalties and Lashoff can do the work on the third pair for MUCH less money than Anton.

This is my darkhorse trade deadline pick. Tomas Fleischmann to Detroit to play with Weiss. Calling it. Ugh.

Former Wing prospect, European, fits the bill on most of Hollands requirements, but he's under 30 and over 6 ft.. Too young and too tall. ;) But I appreciate an actual realistic trade proposal. I could see it happening depending on if Florida would take some roster guys in return. But that goes against Holland's MO too. He usually only wants to trade draft picks.

Unless something has changed, the last I heard was that Florida was trying to dump salary for prospects and picks. Given that Fleischmann has another year on his contract, and if the prospect-pick combo is still what they're after I could definitely see Holland offering our 2nd and a second stage prospect. Not a Jurco, Sproul, Mrazek type of prospect, but maybe a Marchenko, Pulkkinen, Ferraro type. Those are exactly the kinds of trades that Holland will make. It's that whole "offering something of value" thing that really jams him up.
