Give him 3 years and hed be datsyk plus an extra 15-20 goals a year and likely the best player in the world with that talent around him. Detroit fans should take this and run.
I agree tbh I think Detroit would prob throw a pick in to get it done (not a first). But... the reason i said no is Chemsitry/salary structure. The value is there for Detroit but it creates alot of unnecessary headaches for Kenny Holland.

Add a Malkin in at 8.7M and suddenly Zets or Hossa want 8.7M. Franzen? 7M.
The best thing Detroit has going for it atm is players taking discounts to stay with the team.
