Just not interested in kicking a 25 year old former first round pick that is 6'3" 220 lbs and skates very well and hasn't really gotten a chance. Would be very bad asset management. To think the Wings killed a trade with Atlanta a couple years ago for Bogosian because they didn't want to move Kindl and now they are considering this makes me very angry.
Of course if they are going the vet route Redden >>>>> Lilja an even scarier thought for Detroit fans since Ken Holland seems to love retreading old Wings so much lately.
Kindl makes under 900k and is the second youngest defenseman on the team. I think it's more likely that the Wings would give up Colaiacovo to take on Redden, because that would save them ~$2m if Redden takes the minimum and they can then put that towards re-signing their various FAs and perhaps taking a shot at a guy like Edler.
