Really like him as a player, but I wouldn't touch his contract with a 10 foot pole.

I'd like to move him and a prospect or picks for an upgrade scorer with good skating for Filppula to play with.

Something around Korpikoski and Franzen?

His play has dropped and is frustrating Wings fans. Doubt he has too much value but I 1st and a mid-range prospect is what I'd assume.

I would be interested in him, but only for a moderate futures package. It's likely that only contenders would be interested in him, but they won't be interested in moving a roster player for him.

Or, I could just offer Raymond + Ballard + 2nd

Yeah, that's the 30-foot albatross in the room. Does the new CBA say anything about trading for a player, then the new team buying out his contract? I mean, that would be a HUGE favor to Detroit, and it's quite likely that no GM would do that...

Personally, I'd rather have picks/prospects since we have Tatar and Nyquist champing at the bit to get into the top-6, and a rotation of Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Brunner, Flippula, Tatar, and Nyquist sounds pretty good to me.

If there were some manner under the new CBA in which Detroit could retain some portion of his salary such that there's no "cap advantage" hit to the team trading for him, I could see a bit more interest coming along.

Otherwise, y'all can reap what you sow.

Holland signed the deal so I'm guessing he has no problem with the contract.

Franzen is a Paradox.

Scores amazingly well one game. His shot is very very accurate.

and another game he will look slow and unenthused.

Its almost "kovalev" syndrome, although kovalev is a higher talent, and i feel he took more games off than Franzen.

That being said the next 5 years of his 7 year contract likely work out well.

The last 2 he will be paid too much. (for the cap hit).

I doubt alot of teams have any interest at all honestly.

How about bourque for franzen ?? Bourque could score and is cheaper for the wing ... Maybe mtl could give the wing a prospect like quailer or astvin

Franzen has scored 27+ goals in 4 straight seasons (im not including the one he played 20 games due to injury), he has more value than bourque right now, you would need to add.

Of course he as more value then bourque but how much more ?? If franzen didn't have that huge contract he would be worth a lot to my eye but the contract is killing him !!

Bouruqe + weber
Or
Bourque + 2 round + 4 round

Something like that I gess would be good value to me

I think that values are about right.

No, the Wings need a defensive defenseman.

Raymond + Alberts + 2nd

I really don't understand the fear of Franzen's contract after the CBA. Is it the fear that he would play out the entire contract and not be worth the cap hit at the end or is it the fear that he would retire at 36 and a team would have to deal with a whopping $1.0 million in dead cap for the next 3 years? (Assuming he is traded this offseason)

Luongo has 1.4 and his value is zero according to some.

Really though, I'd be happy with Franzen on Vancouver, but we're short on youth already, and our better defensemen won't be up for grabs. Ballard+, Sauve and 2nd, or something around Lu would be what we can afford, and frankly that Montreal deal beats the pants off of what I have offered.

Last I checked, the Wings don't do "defensive". If you never go near the offensive zone you don't play Red Wings hockey. It's all of the ice or none of it.

(We're kind of trying to imitate that model over here... )

Detroit needs D. Rusty is a tad over paid but a solid player and smart veteran defencman. Korpo can skate, is defensively responsible, and a moderate scorer.

Franzen is Franzen. PHX can use all the O' it can get after losing Whitney. I know Whitney and the Mule bring different things but Doan & Franzen sure would put a hurting down low on the power play and wear teams out going into 3rd periods.

We have enough forwards already, Korpikoski though good player, he doesn't bring us anything that we won't already have.. speedy lefty. Not that much interest in Klesla either.
