I don't know what you could add to make it worth it for Detroit. We don't need prospects and a lower end forward or defenseman would be redundant on our squad. That's why it makes so much more sense for us to package Franzen for a first pairing dman. Sucks that basically nobody has one available.

Not sure where you got that idea...

Franzen - Datsyuk - Nyquist
Filppula - Zetterberg - Brunner/Samuelsson

That's how I personally have seen it for the better part of the last four months. Of course, if we have a season this year, Filppula will be out until about January, but still.

The season won't start until about then. I think the only move we make would be trading 1-3 bottom 6 forwards for draft picks. Guys like Miller, Mursak, Eaves, Emmerton, hopefully Bertuzzi. We don't need anything except a top pair defensemen, but none are available really.

I'm sure one is available, we're just not giving up nearly what it would cost.

Datsyuk and Zetterberg are off the table. Filppula's value is low because he's only got a year left. Prospects are too valuable to us right now.
