In Topic: Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

The Wings are 1 point out of first in their division with a game in hand on TB. Depending on the D brought in, I think one player absolutely puts them in the upper echelon of the league as long as they don't give up a bunch of roster players to do it.

It's funny though, people bash Holland for not having balls to make a trade, but then whenever someone suggests trading anyone decent to bring in a good player like Ekman-Larson or whoever, they panic and say no way, because FUTURE!


There are just a few people over rating the prospects. I think most people understand that it will take a great offer to get a top 2 pairing guy. As mentioned in the other thread OEL would cost a lot because he brings a lot to to team. A top paring of Dekeyser and OEL? Sign me up for that. I mean regardless of what people are thinking about the cost of acquiring Myers GM know that the wings are in dire need of defensive help so Holland has to pay to get it it's just simple business.

Do I think Holland would pull something like this off? Back when he had fire and drive for sure...the current Holland would hardly do it.

I mean other than Mantha, Larkin and obviously McKee I'm sure other teams do have their own Pulkinnen, Athanasius, Ouellette... So none of them alone will return much

I think they can't fall out of the top 3 will look that up

Can't believe that trading for OEL would be seen as a bad move, Tatar and Nyquist are doing well but oel has stud potential and wingers are easier to find then bona-fide number 1 defenseman That being said it would take some serious overpayment to get this guy.

Getting Big E off the top pairing will only help with this game. Tavares is probably licking his chops with him out there against him.


Well okposo is out so that should make their top line a little less dangerous for us. But given the track record against the isles I don't expect much.
Hopefully McCollum gets the start

I can't wait for the inevitable scandal when the NHL starts investigating whether or not they were deliberately tanking this summer.


Then they would have to investigate other teams too and go back to 2006..

The chances of them dropping out of the top picks are low but not yeah it's possible. And they also have two more picks after that
