Ott's story reminds me of Franzen's. Franzen was pulling 3rd and 4th (mostly 4th) for his first few years. It wasn't until we had a rash of injuries that Franzen found himself playing alongside Datsyuk and getting PP time. And in the past 2 seasons, hes had, what? 60 goals?

I would LOVE for the Wings to get Ott. Hes exactly what we need. But Ken Holland doesn't make trades, and we don't give up assets in the salary cap world.

Is he UFA next season? Could garner a pretty penny at the deadline.
Yup he's a UFA after next season & I imagine the asking price for Ott will be pretty high. Then again, that will depend on the kind of season he has next year. Let's suppose he puts up similar or slightly better numbers, then I imagine he'll fetch somewhere in the 3-3.5 million range.
