What does Detroit gain exactly? Oh right. Nothing. Actually, they do gain something. A roster spot and cap space. That's it. No better than waiving Helm.

Perhaps something around Edler+Booth/Kassian for Filppula/Franzen+Quincey?
No thanks. IMO we give up the best player in Edler as well as the best secondary piece in Booth/Kassian. We'd fill a hole by creating a new one.
