That amounts to Lupul (pre signing, a rental), a prospect on pace with Finn (that I truly feel is more valuable to Detroit then Vancouver) and a 2nd/3rd for Luongo. Would you have been prepared for Toronto to do this if you had Howard?

If the Wings were in....sure....but we lose Filppula this off season, Ouellet improves on K-Conn, but loses his size and we get a late 2nd or 3rd pick. Unless we get something if Filppula bolts, I dunno...for all the talk of Gillis waiting for the "right deal", the value wouldn't be bad, but I don't see it as a fit.
