I dunno about you guys but does anyone wanna just go pure skill in the top six for just a game to see what happens?

I just wanna see what would happen
That would give us a lethal checking line of Abby andersson and Cleary. I honestly like that idea. Put Abby and Cleary back to doing what they should be. Forechecking defense and looking for scrappy goals
Holland does not need to make a big splash, I hate to say this but the wings are not winning the cup this year. The group of guys we have are definitely capable of winning the cup, but a couple years down the line once our kids develop. The very last thing I want Holland to do is trade valuable prospects for a rental aging "star", and Holland wont do that.
This has been an awkward year for the wings with all the injuries that caused us to send kids up and down constantly, and the shortened season not allowing us to get in a groove. We will make the playoffs, which keeps the streak alive. Sign a defenseman and/or a scorer in the offseason, and in 3-5 years this team will have a cup. Please Holland, don't blow up our team.
the only problem with your theory is most likely in 3-5 years we won't have Datsyuk so I can't imagine we getting a cup without him anytime soon.
