I wouldn't give up much for Shattenkirk on an expiring contract. I'd prefer to go after a defenseman with a little more term, or be sure he would be willing to re-sign in Detroit, like would be the case for a hometown kid like Trouba...

A trade for a D must happen. What would you give as trade for Trouba?

I think the Jets need Wingers?

Nyquist, Pulkinen, and 2 second round picks on the condition that Trouba re-signs with us.

I personally have no idea.

I was thinking something along Nyq and Pulk too, and a pick perhaps, but I didn't know if it would be too much.

Unfortunately, I don't think Nyquist + Pulkkinen gets it done. Trouba's an exceptional young player who's only going to get better over the next few years. He has real #1D potential. Cheveldayoff would be justified in asking for Tatar/Nyquist + Mantha/Athanasiou/Svechnikov.

Nyq, Jurco and Pulk?

Jurco and Pulk value is too low right now unfortunately. It's going to have to be Nyquist + a prospect like Mantha and maybe some high picks too... jeez.

Holland would never do it. It's not his style.

I can't see Holland making a big move for a dman, especially with the cap crunch the team is in. Holland's main focus should be finding creative ways to dump E and Howard like he did with Datsyuk. That will make things much easier

I know all the fans (myself included) want him to dump E, but has Holland or anyone on the Wings ever even indicated the idea? Obviously Howard has been shopped around, but I have never read anything about E.

Yeah to be honest I don't think management or coaches even see Ericsson or his contract as an issue. I think it's just us. The only contract they ever considered moving has been Howard and Datsyuk's. And of course Kindl.

Only that Khan tweet about him being bought out but was deleted seconds after. I don't think he's on the chopping block as of now. It would be in the teams best interest to see if he can turn his game around. As of right now the cap problems haven't prevented any deals from going through so I still have faith in Holland

I for one find these rebuilding years fun to watch

I won't be disappointed until Larkin and co have a few full seasons under their belt and the team still isn't making progress

Holland's made some questionable moves lately but I'm not going to act like he needs to be fired until he starts losing promising players because of it. When and if he makes a trade for an impact defensemen it will be very very important for the future of the team. Right now he's left himself a lot of options. Larkin could have been gone without playing a game for Myers if I remember the rumour correctly

I have no idea what it would take for Trouba. But I'm prepared for pain, as in it might involve Mantha or AA, on top of Nyquist or Tatar. Add some fries with that in the form of a second rounder.

I would rather give Mantha than AA. That speed of Athanasiou is just nasty, he'll shape up fine in the coming seasons.

Man, it'd be tough to sacrifice Mantha that way, is trouba really supposed to be that good?

I know they'd want a young prospect, but I'd almost rather offer both nyquist and tatar...what about nyquist and Sheahan. I know I'm probably over valuing Mantha, but it'd be tough to let him go. But I most definitely agree, if it came down to it, I'd let Mantha go before AA.

As long as the coke rumors are overblown, yes
