It all boils down to what we gave up. Getting anyone who can really play cannot hurt right now. Long term? Eh...

This is a good trade, Andersson would get run out of town if he stayed on the 1st line.

WAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!! No TRADE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! LEGWAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The crying around here is out of hand. No other good centers were moved, as long as they didn't give up too much (conditional picks) this is a good move.

What about a defenceman?

Babcock is gonig to have to run a defense by committee. Not a lot of scoring, just log down play it safe hockey.

Gonna be another Weiss, just wait.

Weiss isn't even playing which is why we need Legwand.

I'm ASSUMING this means at least one of Helm or Datsyuk will be out a long time. Maybe both.

It's a rental, he's a decent player. It's a good trade as long as we didn't have to give up a 1st or a decent prospect. We almost 100% needed to pick up help on center if we're gonna be without Datsyuk and Helm. And IF by some miracle we make the playoffs, Legwand could help us there too.

We needed a healthy center badly, if it's a 2nd or 3rd, then how can anyone complain? We had Jokaim ******* Andersson centering our top line last game, this is good.

I will be happy if we give up a 3rd or worse. I don't think this trade involves any prospects.

This is pure speculation on my part. Anything better than a 3rd, and it's a bad trade for us.

Why is everyone so down on Legwand? He's played every game this year, is leading Nashville's forwards in scoring, and instantly becomes one of our top scorers, too. Not a superstar goal scorer, but he will likely finish the year with 15 goals at least. And 30 assists so far isn't anything to shrug at on a team like ours that has trouble passing sometimes.

EDIT: I was going off memory, so I'm wrong. He won't be one of our top scorers. He's played nearly twice as many games as anyone on our roster, but over a full season he'd probably fall in the middle of the pack. Not bad, still. Sort of like a Flip, 50-60 point guy.

What scares me is that this could be a sign that Weiss, Helm and/or Dats could be out for a long period.

The guy has one assist and zero goals in last 7 games and is 33. If we are going for a rental, at least make it a good rental. Look at what Moulson went for, practically nothing.

Only pros is that he is a Detroit native (not suburbs, ACTUAL Detroit) and a center.

Oh, and he is pretty consistent in playoffs.

It's a good move, but we needed a Defenceman as much as a center. So only 50% happy.
