What does Detroit's defence even look like atm? Is White injured? I know Colaiacovo is injured but I could've guessed that whitout even checking.

Can't wait for teams to suffer injuries on the backline, so we can maximise our "tradeable assets".

Unless one of those teams wind up 'being' us.

Detroit went from having Lidstrom rock solid on the backend, to having to rely on Colin White, Brett Lebda or any one of the numerous pylons remaining to help them get through the season.

Hopefully they go the trade route. Cause that's... depressing, to say the least.

Yes he is. Also, O`Donnell retired afaik. That list could use an update for sure.

In my opinion - Simon Gagne more likely to be traded for help on LA Kings blueline than Jonathan Bernier. #LAKings #MayorsManor
Just do it already Lou... Tallinder for Gagné and call it a day.

Both contracts would be a wash, except Tallinder has that extra year.. but Gagné is injury prone. I'd love to have Gagné on our team, always liked him, even when he was with the Flyers.

We could then resign Zidlicky whitout jeopardising a roster spot for Larsson or maybe Urbom/Gélinas.

I love Gagne, always have, but I`ve lost a lot of confidence in him over the last two years. Injuries played a big part, of course, but he`s visibly declining. Then again, many players re-started their careers after changing the team. I`m just not sure he can. Him playing with Elias would be kind of ironic though. haha

Also, trading for him would kinda remind me the MacLean era:

For whatever reason, the video won`t load for me now, but I think it`s the right one.

I'd like Filppula, but I'm not sure Tallinder would be enough? or is he in his contract year? don't remember.

Gagné would just be a "rental" more then anything else and with a shortend season, it wouldn't be that bad. As a bonus, we'd part way with Tallinder's extra year in order to either resign Zidlicky or promote one of Urbom/Gélinas.

It's a move that can benefit our club now and next year.

How about Stoll? I know not many care for him but he did have a good playoff and he can play center or wing.

And we`d piss off my fellow Flyers fans. That`s a positive too.

He`s the Hollywood boy of that lineup. Not sure what his contract details are, but if he has a NTC, he won`t waive it.

Solid player, but I`d prefer a pure winger this time. The only exception is Benn, but that`s not happening.

I'd think the Flyers would rather move Gagné then Stoll in all honesty... and he's signed for the next 3 years at 3.25$ per, wich wouldn't be a very smart move on our part IMO.

Did you mean the Kings or was that made on purpose?

Ansar Khan ‏@AnsarKhanMLive
Ken Holland tells MLive he ow working to sign a veteran D for tonight's game. "Been on phone for couple hours" he said.

Prepare yourselves, it`s coming!

EDIT: false alarm. Damn you Holland.

DET is signing UFA defenceman Kent Huskins today. One year, one way contract.

EDIT: I still wonder who is Gillies waiting for.

Kindl and Ericsson are both injured too. Detroit is screwed. No idea why they haven't traded for someone yet.

“We have a potential deal in place with one team that has to do something with another player that they have — and it’s not who anybody thinks it is — and so we have to wait. (But) we’ve been offered packages that don’t fit what our plan is, what we need,” said Gillis.
Since this news came out yesterday the Canucks board has been speculating who this mystery team is that "has to do something with a player they have" in order to close the deal.

Philly- Buying out Bryz, in which cases the deal most likely wouldn't be going down until the off season.

Detroit- First having to find a new home for Howard

Florida- Needing to sign Weiss... but Florida is on everyone radar as far as trading Lou goes.

Colorado- (unlikely but certainly not on anyones radar) needing to deal with O'Rielly.

Tampa- Unloading Vinny (MTL?) to be able to fit Lou under the cap.

The Devils name has come up a lot in discussion over there too. Is there a player on your team right now that the Devils "have to do something with"?

We have 2 NHL goalies with NTC/NMCs - one who has been our franchise goalie and the other who wanted the NTC so he could finally bring his family up to live with him.

100% certain that the Devils have nothing to do with Luongo.

I`d say Barch, just for comedic purposes.

We have too many Dmen, but that`s not really what you need or am I mistaken?

And many of those teams you listed really don`t make much sense at all.

It`s a mystery though.

I honestly think that The Panthers are going hard after Luongo and if that's the case and they do land him... We should call Tallon and open talks for Markstrom.

Larsson, Josefson, Tedenby, Urbom and Markstrom? That would be sick for those young Swedes to all play for the same team !!!

Yeah, then trade Volchenkov for Nyquist and voilà, the Red Wings have moved to the Eastern Conference. Tallinder and Hedberg can mentor them all.

Keep calm and DATW.

I can't say I'd mind either of those moves. Go Team Sweden!

Phase I: Acquire former Blackhawk that Tallon drafted
Phase II: Trade that prospect for Markstrom
Phase III: Profit

----------------

Devils trade Brandon Burlon and two large pizzas to Chicago for Kyle Beach.

Devils trade Beach and breadsticks to Florida for Markstrom.

This GM stuff is easy!

Could the team be the Islanders? Buy out Dipietro, but would Luongo waive his NTC to them?
