Detroit is thin on forwards, but they have the depth in the minors to cover up for Filppula(Nyquist).

I don't think Detroit would ask for young prospects in return in a deal like this. To be honest, SJ isn't exactly swimming in quality prospects(no offense), and the one's they do have they wouldn't/shouldn't trade.

If Detroit does a trade like this they aren't expecting Filppula to sign with them/plan on replacing him with Nyquist(what I think should happen). Also, it helps them get more physical for the playoff run and moving to the East(assuming they re-sign one or both).

The more I think about it, the more I like this trade.
