I agree, but people on this forum and media around Detroit is taking it as "an insider said it so it has to have an element of truth", when in reality he was just typing out a satirical piece.
Why is it a "satirical" piece? If indeed Detroit is one of the teams on his Ok list, why not be in the fold for him? Is it satirical because of Nyquist and Mantha? Stammer is 25 years old, he has upwards of 12-15 more years to play (if health allows him to.) Could you imagine a line of Larkin - Stamkos - Drouin for the next 8 years, let alone 12-15 more? We've all said it, you have to give up to get, and nobody wants a rental, all players involved from us can be replaced from within, PLUS you have Stamkos and Drouin. If this is anywhere NEAR a trade offer at the deadline, Holland would be stupid not to do it. Remember, he was close toincluding Mantha in a deal for Phaneuf last deadline, so who would you rather have in return?
