IMO if DET wants to retool then this could be a good option.
Klefbom is almost NHL ready and a healthy Whitney is as good as anyone they have on D. Shores up the D for them and gets them Gagner and Omark
Unless Datsyuk is extended before the trade, I just don't see a deal that would satisfy both teams. If he would be around for 4 years guarenteed, then it'd be worth it having a veteran 1C along with RNH.

Detroit would be better served dealing with a team looking for the last piece to win it all, and willing to give up some future pieces for the now. Edmonton is still years away from being in that position.
