Sorry but I disagree (obviously). I wish that were so but I fully expect we're going to have to offer a sweetener. Teams will know we are over a barrel on this and won't do us any favours. 


Teams might know we're over the barrel, but there is a market for a free 7 mil cap hit. Teams like Arizona, Columbus, Florida, etc would all love that cap hit. They're not gonna band together and make Detroit give up something good for one of them.

They could trade him just for a late pick, there's no rules against a move like that. The league allowed Toronto to trade Clarkson for Horton, who will never play hockey again.


Edit: Here's another article laying out their options. If Dats was traded and retired the wings would take on a 2 mil cap recapture penalty for next season; obviously a lot better than the full 7.5.

Interesting article about how the wings could actually solve this problem if he does leave. Basically they could trade him to Phoenix if he leaves, and they need to get to the salary floor with only 28 million committed against next years cap. So if they trade for Datsyuk they get 7.5 mil against their cap without having to pay a dollar. The author also talks about how we can get Stamkos with this move as well (with the freed up cap space), which is probably wishful thinking, but the Phoenix scenario I think could very likely happen.
