With that projection, why would they want to trade Jenner? It seems like they'd be in the losing end of the trade.
I don't think it would be smart be to trade for Johnson, he'd be coming out of a shoulder surgery, wouldn't it be too much of a risk?
I haven't heard anything about them wanting to trade Jenner. Again, though, I haven't been paying much attention to them -- really, the rumor mill in general -- this summer. If they are looking to move Jenner, it'd be for a big return.
Johnson, to me, has always been overrated. If I'm the Wings, I've zero interest in him. I like Savard more, but I'm not sure I'd move Nyquist for him.
Is there a correlation between quantity of trades and organizational success? Serious question to those willing to do the research or who happen to already know.
I doubt there's much of a correlation.
Personally, when I point out that the Red Wings have made, like, 25 trades over the past decade (next fewest: the Devils, with something like 50), my point isn't "See? That's why we've been struggling!" Rather, my point is that Ken Holland has his head up his ass.
