Could the Wings be better off trading Pav & Hank for draft picks?

15 January 2015 - 02:27 PM



I just read Damien Cox's piece on KK about blowing up the Leafs.  It made me wonder if all parties may be served best if Pav & Hank would be allowed to go to a place with a genuine shot at the cup (if that would suit them) and the wings can load up on some draft picks to help launch a team in a few years when our young guys today are seasoned and would be complimented by an influx in talent for a longer run?


For many reasons Holland has not been able to reshape the team enough through trades or free agency, For more than half a decade.  He has done a great job and has had some fortune in the draft and development area's. 


Is anybody else wondering about this?  I just don't see enough help in our future.

Honestly I have become unaware of what happened to Derek.  I was familiar with him in his younger years.  Back in the day he was a bigger, respectable defensemen with som offensive upside.  At one point he was a pretty desirable guy, even moreso than Niskinin is now.  Injury? bad teams?  loose his drive?  I appreciate any viewpoint.
