See this is the crux of Wings fans these days. You have a group who wants to go out and sign the sexy name. The group who would call Holland an idiot for signing the same player. And then there is a group who could belong to either who would call Holland an idiot for paying too much. Same goes for trades. I didn't see many trades at the deadline where I thought "wow what a deal!!". I just see buying teams getting ripped off. People complain about the Q deal, compared to what everyone else was paying for players he was cheap.

I like a lot of our prospects. I wish we had a little more diversity in skill set but maybe that's greedy when I look at other teams who can't develop NHL talent I shouldn't complain. The prospects pool is getting deeper and deeper as Holland promised. I don't see it as a bad thing to ask the prospects to earn their position. If all they are asking is Nyquist has to out play Sammy I don't think that is asking too much. We are adding at least 3 young guys to the roster this year. With the compressed season there will be injuries and Nyquist and Tatar should get their chance. There should be at least one more/ year for the next 3 years. Not many teams can say that about players who will have impact prospects in the next few years. I don't know if I want to ruin this pool of prospects making a deadline trade.
