I would seriously consider this. I'm not super 100% on the value but it's close enough that.. yea. I like the needs that are addressed here.

Wings get a big dude for the bottom 6 and a big dude for depth on the back end. Rags get an experienced bottom 6 winger and a decent #4/5 d-man that can chip in at both ends of the ice--I think Quincey would fit the Rags a lot better than the Wings, and the Wings really need someone up front like Boyle.

I have to say, though, the idea of a Smith-Kindl pairing makes me cringe. Wings lines would look more like this:

Franzen - Zetterberg - Brunner
Filppula - Datsyuk - Bertuzzi
Abdelkader/Tatar - Helm - Samuelsson (Tatar probably gets sent back down)
Abdelkader/Miller - Boyle - Tootoo
Emmerton, Eaves

Kronwall - White
Smith - Ericsson
Bickel/Huskins - Kindl
Huskins/Bickel

(I'm not even going to pretend a healthy Colaiacovo exists)



I would not want to play against that 4th line.
