Good point, although, I would say that UFA's would hold a ton of value to contenders with cap problems next year.

Personally, I'm fine with Detroit selling off Filppula, White, Cleary, Miller, Eaves.

Their roles in the organization can be replaced from within. Also gives tons of room for a free agents, and the re-signing of Howard and Smith.

Also, I've been following the Wings for a long time, and this is the best prospect pool I've seen since the early 90's. Even if half bust, Detroit's still in good shape. Adding more draft picks through trades keeps the pool stocked, and allows for movement.

Problem is, doesn't seem like Holland shares this mentality, i.e. selling off players.
