Yeah, that's the 30-foot albatross in the room. Does the new CBA say anything about trading for a player, then the new team buying out his contract? I mean, that would be a HUGE favor to Detroit, and it's quite likely that no GM would do that...

Personally, I'd rather have picks/prospects since we have Tatar and Nyquist champing at the bit to get into the top-6, and a rotation of Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Brunner, Flippula, Tatar, and Nyquist sounds pretty good to me.
