And what if we are trying to get a player like Datsyuk...IMO, it's doughtful, but not impossible. After all, Thornton was traded away from Boston!

Detroit would still have Zetterberg and Lang, and they would make a place for Hudler.

And they have some holes to fill...they need to replace Shanahan, they have depht on defence, but could use another top 4 defenceman and they need a #1 goaltender.

What would we have to offer:

On the wings, we have a package for Datsyuk, why not!

On defence, we have Souray...would be a huge lost, but Detroit could add a defenceman...

In net, we only have Aebischer...

We have many prospects and we can trade our picks...

So my proposal:

Aebischer, Ryder and Souray/Perezhogin/1st


Datsyuk, Lilja(if we trade Souray)

Thornton, who is better than Datsyuk, was traded for around the same thing...maybe even less!

So our line up would look like this:

Samsonov-Datsyuk-Kovalev --> An all Russian line
Higgins-Koivu-Perezhogin/Latendresse/Kostitsyn --> depend on who's ready

EXTRA - Downey, Ferland


EXTRA - Streit, Coté


Trade Ribeiro, but if we can't, put him in the line up as a winger...on the 2nd or on the 3rd line.
