I said it earlier today, but if the Avalanche management is willing to sign public enemy #2 (Brad May), then they are willing to trade a fan favorite to the Wings. They just don't care what the fans think of their player movement.

If we can get a good return for Lappy, than I don't really care where we trade him too.


I'd ask for a 2nd rounder, or a prospect like Jonathan Ericsson or Ville Leino.

That's the equivalent of a 1st rounder. The Wings have no room for a forward or defensemen even though I like the idea of Lappy on the Wings.

Really?

Ericsson is the 10th rated prospect in Detroits system and Leino is 8th.

Who would you be willing to give up for Lapperiere then prospect wise?

I think a fair deal for Lappy would be a conditional pick. 2nd if he is resigned, 4th if not.

Doesn't that seem a little high for somebody who would be playing on Detroit's 4th line?

The Avs are very good at getting 2nd round picks for 4th line players (May, Parros, Richardson).

Maybe, but he's the type of guy that every team in the league wants for their playoff push. He hits, fights, great leader, and is a pretty good player overall who can chip in once in a while. He's exactly what Detroit could use (not that they need much, but a physical 4th liner with leadership can always help).

Why did we have Drake last year? Toughness and a spark.

Dater is not really reliable anyway so i take this about as hard as i take Ekcrap..

Wow. Thats like us asking for a 1st for cleary. Nice try though.

First of all, HF's list is garbage. Smith is barely top5 on the list. Ericsson would be a top 4-5 this year if it wasnt for a few minor problems such as him being able to be sent down w/o clearing waivers. His skill set is phenominal, something the list makers failed to understand. I think the list you should really go by is Redwingscentral.com

While i also think the msg board there is more of a joke then LWG.com, their rankings and analysis is better then the wings writers here. Way better. Many would agree too.

Something we barely needed last year and won.

Dater is not a rumour monger. He reports what he hears. He never said that a deal was imminent, just that Detroit had some interest in Lapperiere, which I don't doubt for one minute because he could be a perfect fit there.

I was commenting more so on the Ericsson/Leino part, which simply wouldn't happen.

As far as a 2nd rounder goes, i doubt that Detroit would give that up for a 4th line player.

As it is right now, Detroit already has these players that will be competing for a 4th line spot in the playoffs:

Hudler/Samuelsson, Draper, Maltby, Kopecky, and Leino. One of Hudler/Samuelsson will be on the 3rd line (or possibly 2nd), but the other will likely be on the 4th line, along with 2 of the other 4 mentioned players.

As much as i understand and like what a player like Laperriere brings, especially come postseason, i don't think it's a huge need for Detroit. And I definitely don't see them paying a high price for something like that.

Who's in the top 9 if Hudler and Samuelsson are battling it out on the fourth?

Zetterberg-Dats-Holmstrom
Cleary-Franzen-Hossa
????-Filpulla-?????

Actually its been:

Franzen - Filppula - Hossa
Hudler - Helm - Cleary

its worked good. Does it really matter who is in the top 9?

I was just wondering why Hudler would be in contention for the 4th line with the type of year he's having thats all.

I could be wrong, but i think we might see Darren Helm on the 3rd line.

This would allow Datsyuk/Zetterberg to stay together and allow Filppula(who is a player that Babcock trusts a lot) to center a 2nd line with Hossa and Franzen(which he is currently doing).

Helm's speed simply adds another element to this team and Babcock really seems to trust him a lot. He could be on the 4th line come playoffs, but i really wouldn't be that surprised to see him on the 3rd.

Babcock is going to have a lot of options though, so we'll see what he does.

Assuming health, which is a terrible thing to assume, Detroit's lineup on paper will be stronger in the postseason than it was during the regular season. The only reason we are seeing the likes of Helm and Leino right now is because of injury. But there's no doubt that Helm will be a regular in the playoffs and even Leino is making a case of late. Decisions, decisions.

Datsyuk-Zetterberg-Holmstrom
Franzen-Filppula-Hossa
Cleary-Helm-Hudler/Samuelsson
? -Draper-Hudler/Samuelsson

? = Maltby, Kopecky, Leino, Acquisition?

Babcock will juggle things and we'll just have to wait and see.

Regardless though, Detroit's 4th line in the playoffs is likely to be much stronger than it has been this entire season.

And in terms of Hudler... Hudler's still going to get 2nd unit PP time in the postseason, but Babcock doesn't trust him as much at even strength - even though he does produce. Hudler has never seen 1st line action and when he does see the 2nd line, he never sticks. He's been effective in his role, as a player with limited even strength time(3rd line role) and 2nd unit PP time, and that's likely to be his role in the playoffs.

Personally, I would hope the Avs have zero intention of helping the wings win another cup. Having said that, if they offered a 1st for him, I'd take it obviously because it would be the best offer but more realistically, I'd trade him to San Jose for their 2nd round pick and help THEM against the wings instead.

Didn't Laperriere say that he did not want to leave the Av's and the Av's said they wanted him to stay put?
