What's wrong with my deal.

Fischer is a bit of an enigma on whether he can fulfill his potential (He won't do it playing as a 5th/6th dman in Detroit) so it is fairly difficult to gauge what his value will be if traded to a team such as Atlanta.
I agree that Datsyuk is a top point per game player. However I think that in my proposal Atlanta gives up reasonable package for him and Fischer.
Detroit will get a top ten pick, one that they haven't had in ages; Jim Slater is Atlanta's top forward prospect coming off a great season in college in which he was nominated for the Hobey; while Foster is Atlanta's 2nd best d-man prospect who is rounding his game nicely in the AHL.

I think Detroit could go for this deal if they wanted to inject some more youth into their team and possibly rebuild for the future.
