Several of Detroitís top prospects were off the table, and the Wings were more inclined to part with only draft picks in any deals.

They certainly weren't willing to give up high-scoring prospect Teemu Pulkkinen, who every team apparently wanted to acquire.
Since when is 179cm/88 kg undersized? Note that Pavel Bure was listed at 178/86 in his prime. Marc Savard is/was 178cm/92kg.
