This team is in no man's land right now. Good enough to make the playoffs and finish anywhere from 3rd to 8th but we would have to play out of our minds to make a deep run and bad enough some nights to miss the playoffs. 25 years of being a Wing's fan and I have never been a doomsdayer or panic buttoner but this team is super stale. We need a blow up hockey trade and Stamkos would be my target. We have the assets, we have roster players they would take but I think the biggest factor is Stevie Y. I think it would be fairly obvious that when Holland is done the GM job in the D is his to take if he wants so I would think that in the back of his mind trading Stamkos to Detroit may not be the last time they are connected. Lets be honest, Dats, Z and Kronner are finishing their careers in Detroit so they aren't getting traded nor would I trade any of them. The only other 2 untouchables are Larkin and Mrazek in my opinion. Package up Gus, Tatar, Prospects, Draft pics, take on salary..do whatever it takes because the future going forward with Larkin and Stamkos would rank right up there with the Stevie Y, Feds era or the Z, Dats and Lidstrom era. It's time to take a chance and mix it up.
