Thought this stat was relevant here.

Trades since 2010:

Chicago - 26
Boston - 24
Los Angeles - 18
Pittsburgh - 17
Detroit - 7

Detroit has made the fewest trades of all NHL teams in that time. The average NHL team has made 23 trades in that time. All but 3 teams teams have made more than 15 trades in that time.

Most of these trades are obviously minor trades, but I think that's what's so telling about it. In today's NHL, you need to be willing to move the non-integral pieces and constantly reevaluate and tweak your roster to improve and/or stay competitive.
