Does such a thing even exist in Hudler world?

#2179580 Ken Holland: Open to trade to replace Rafalski

When you lose a guy like Rafi you probably can't afford to not be open to a trade.

He's thanked and mentioned Nicklas Lidström at least five times.


He did? I didn't hear it from the speech and q&a session on Red Wings TV online.

EDIT: Oh wait... I think I get it? He thanked God many times and Nick Lidstrom is God? I see what you did there?

If Nick hangs 'em too I'm looking for the nearest open bar.

I'm not sure if the Wings need to look for a Rafalski replacement.

I think the Wings hope that Kronwall feels a little more urgency to step up as the new #2 offensive dman, takes another significant step forward and then his production will help fill some of the gap missing from Rafalski's offense.

In that sense, what they might look for is a dman to produce 38-43 points that Kronwall did as he was the #3 dman, which makes guys like Ehrhoff and Bieksa look like some really ideal options right now.

The official word is that he hasn't fully decided yet. Or hasn't made it official. The word on the street, however, is that he's done.

How many people in here are holding out on the slim chance that he won't retire?

It may not be the most popular opinion on here but you can count me as one who hopes that his body somehow magically re-strengthens itself for one more solid season.

So that's one. Anyone else?

"I've decided to take my talents to Detroit" doesn't really have the same ring to it.


"I'm going to take my talents to the Motor City." Hmm, nah.

"I'm going to take my talents to Motown." Hmm, that's more for a musician than an athlete.

"I'm going to take my talents to Hockeytown." Better.

I wouldn't be surprised if they employed Logan Pyett as their 7th defenseman. I can already see the "We hope he can provide a similar role that Derek Meech did for a couple years."
