Phaneuf hits all of your marks.
Maybe/likely a joke but if we trade Dats, we are going for full rebuild.

I don't want a #1 defenseman, it'll cost too much. I want a #2/#3 stay at home type guy who can log big minutes.

Well most teams would be looking for Tatar, Nyqvist, Jarnkrok, or Sheahan in a return Like Sully said above, it would cost way too much.

I'd trade Tatar+Sheahan for a #2 defenseman

Come on down NHL GM's, your chance to be screwed by detroit is waiting...
Here's the point: .

And your head:

As you can see, the point went over your head.

The recent proposals were to get Byfuglien and Green, neither of which are even close to the type of defender we need. Try again.

Off-limits are:
Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Kronwall, Howard

Ideally off-limits:
Filppula, Nyquist, Smith

I'm going to start with a baseline:

Johan Franzen + Kyle Quincey = Tobias Enstrom + Kyle Wellwood + WPG 2nd
no no no no no no no no no no no no no

Right now there is zero chance of trading enstrom, as he is really our only option at left d for the foreseeable future, take a right d-man, and if you want a #1dman, you will have to give up a lot more

I just don't see any trade for a #1 happening at all. Looks like we might have a half season to get a clearer grasp of what Smith brings to the table. Meanwhile Ouellet continues to look better and with Sproul & Marchenko also in the pipeline Detroit's blueline prospect depth suddenly looks quite solid. I think Wings' brass is fine with standing pat, at least until the summer, when I expect them to go all-in on Edler if he's unsigned.

Also, #1 Dmen just don't get traded for packages based around the Wings' expendable assets.

The one move I might consider would be to at least enquire about some younger guys who might be expendable to their teams and hope you can pull off a coup a la the Rangers' acquisition of McDonagh. If Detroit could ship a Pulkinnen or a Ferraro off for someone like Hickey, Pysyk, etc it could be a low-risk, high potential reward move.
