If we could get Tallinder for Filppula straight up thats straight up larceny by Lou even if he's a UFA, we'd need to add something

Yeah, I didn't necessarily mean straight up. Very rare do you see one for one deals. But Filppula is UFA which hurts is value. I'm sure we add a mid pick, but Tallinder plays a style that I think the Red Wings like out of their D-men. Just seems like an easy trade to make for both sides.
Darche is 2 years removed from putting up 26 points in 59 games. He can definitely fill in on the 3rd/4th lines better than any goon we ever iced. That Carter-Gionta-Bernier isn't going to put up a last year's playoff like season performance so it's good we have have Darche (if he makes it) to mix in there.
