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
Kronwall - White
Smith - Ericsson
Bickel/Huskins - Kindl
(I'm not even going to pretend a healthy Colaiacovo exists)
I would not want to play against that 4th line.
