Winnipeg gets our LHD of the near future and a 2nd line winger to play opposite Kane, as well as a good young wing prospect that we do not have in the system.

Detroit gets mini Datsyuk to play with Helm and form a sick shutdown tandem or play with Datsyuk and learn from his superior. Also add a huge presence on the back end that they haven't had since Lidstrom/Rafalski.
Why would Detroit give up that much for a guy who hasn't proven he can score against grown men yet and a guy who's rumored to be tipping the scales at 300 lbs a month after the season? The way Jurco is playing right now makes it even crazier.
