Front office is on record (multiple times, so please don't go on about making me dig it up) saying that they did not want to make those moves. Besides, Maltby simply retired. McCarty was a byproduct of an age where you could pay a 4th liner multiple millions.

To address the OP-I don't see why Detroit trades for a goalie swap. Doesn't really help them, I think they'd prefer Osgood.

A reasonable depth trade at F or D, they might consider. I'll warn you though-Osgood plays great within the Wings system, and not great outside of it (NYI, STL).
