Witt for a 3rd or 4th? No chance. (But I would like to be proven wrong if it did happen).
I wouldn't pay more than a 3rd or 4th rounder for Witt. He's made it clear he doesn't want to stay with the team, while being an impending UFA... Exactly what kind of value do you give to a hard hitting defenseman who won't contribute much offensively, with that contract status and team relationship?
Maybe I'd trade Kanko for him... but if you think Washington will get an impact player for Witt, I think you're sorely mistaken. Best they could hope for is depth.
Primeau gets hurt for maybe the entire season. Bobby Clarke picks up Nedved.
Ken Holland says he will add a forward and a defenceman before the deadline to improve the Wings.
Dave Taylor sticks with a top 6 of Norstrom, Visnovsky, Miller, Corvo, Gleason and Weaver from Day One. Demitra, Roenick, Frolov, Robitaille, Bure, Brown, Belanger, Cowan all suffer injuries at one point or another. The team isn't improved through trade at all.
