He was absolutely terrible last season and should have been in the press box once the Quincey deal was made. Realistically, he should have been traded the moment his NTC was up, as I have been saying for years.

I said back then to try and trade him to Philly for Meszaros, Carle, or Coburn - or somewhere else for someone similar. How would the Wings look now if that deal had been made, assuming any necessary extensions? Kronwall, Carle/Meszaros/Coburn, White, Ericsson, Smith, Kindl would probably be the defense. There likely is no Quincey trade. Maybe there's a trade to add a forward with that pick instead?
