How do you proceed?
Well I think the people kicking around the idea of moving Loui Eriksson maybe being available can shelf that he fits perfectly into Red Wings hockey. Then again we might just have someone that really appreciates a couple of our prospects so that could be interesting....

He is going to have to hatchet that team up a bit. They have a lot of good young wingers, but Dallas should go with a youth movement in my opinion. Get rid of some of the older defenders, role Morrow and Oleksiak up. If he could target and land Weiss for that second line it would be interesting. I don't think the Stars are terrible, they have a vastly underrated prospect pool. But he needs to get some answers at center and some of their depth players are very replaceable. They have moved a lot of the slower plug type guys might have been one of the reasons Nill was intrigued.

Benn, Eriksson, Cole and Whitney are all under contract for next year and in the top 6, they do have a franchise goalie according to most, I actually prefer Howard over Lehtonen so if you don't think Jimmy is one then you shouldn't say that about Kari. But that D needs help and the centers are troubling. Curious if Dallas becomes a big player for Filppula.
