Made a few comments after being scratched that I'm sure didn't sit well with Babcock or Holland at all. And it doesn't look like he'll be playing anytime soon. What could the Wings get for him?

Last year of his deal.
Right-handed two-way defenseman (5'11 so kind of small).
Played with Lidstrom the past two years posting solid seasons of ~30 points.
Probably a #4 PMD who plays the #2 PP on a contending team, can also play PK but average at best.

Wings are probably wanting pick(s) or prospects in return.

I think there was a similar thread few days back.
If I remember correctly the consensus was 2nd/3rd rounder + late draft pick/weak prospect

Ottawa is your team. I literally don't know why this deal hasn't happened uneless the red Wings are waiting for a better deal.


Positives:
He's outside the conference so he can't burn you.
The entire Ottawa team is walking wounded on defense.
They need a right shot defenseman even if they weren't injured
They need a defenseman who can score PAST this season so they might even wan to re-sign him
They have boatloads of prospects at every position, probably top-5 for prospect depth in the NHL.
Salary cap is not an issue (Red Wings won't have to take back ANY salary)
Organizational connection with the Red Wings via Ottawa's current coach
GM takes risks with players who need new homes (see Filatov/Turris)


Negatives:
GM has publicly stated they wouldn't be trading for players at the expense of prospects (which means the big "name" prospects aren't an option) and Ottawa can't spare roster players.
Red Wings will probably want something "good" for White

Few possible reasons

1. We could be waiting for Colacovo to get fully healthy before dealing any D. (when he comes back we get 9D, but we could send Lashoff down without being subjected to waivers to 8D. However, it seems like Babcock really likes Lashoff)

2. We aren't actually trading White (meaning one of the players playing is being show cased - maybe Kindl/Quincey)

3. We will just keep White for insurance (with how many injuries we had, maybe it's not the end of the world)

If Detroit is going to wait for Cola to get healthy they might not want to bother.

This is White's second season with the team. He played only one season with Lidstrom.

My guess on how the White situation plays out. He won't be traded.

Lashoff is sent back down. (8-dmen) Huskins is waived closer to the deadline and goes down to help the Griffins for their playoff run. (7-dmen)

At the deadline Detroit either goes after a solid stay at home guy or recalls Lashoff for the playoffs.

If a team shows up who is in desperate need of D and is offering a 2nd for White I think you consider it as White was an UFA acquisition it's good asset management. It would be tough to lose our only RH shot though.

I think Detroit is looking for 1st + prospect which would heavily stagnate any possible dealings. This is, assuming he is getting traded.

How does a guy that has only been a Wing for 2yrs and only 1 of them with Lidstrom, play 2yrs with Lidstrom?

He had 1 decent year with Lidstrom and really, it's Lidstrom, who wouldn't? His value is probably a 3rd (desperate team) or a 4th (a team that just needs depth).

2011-12: Wings
2012-13: Wings (Lidstrom retired)

I don't think that the Wings are looking to get rid of White and unload him for anything on particular value but he is still a veteran and steady. He's not flashy, nor a game changer but his value is most definitely above that of a 4th to say the least. A late 2nd, early 3rd or bust. UFA or not, the Wings won't trade him off unless he's packaged with a more valuable or younger piece for something decent in return. When do the Wings trade veterans away for mid round draft picks? It hasn't happened in some time and I wouldn't expect it this season.

I recall Commodore being moved for cheap but he was an afterthought by that time and had barely touched the ice in any meaningful way during his short stint with the Wings. White's production was a direct result of Lidstrom, that's a given, but even so, he's worth more than a 4th. Maybe not much more, but a notch no less. Depends on WHO would trade for him, really.

If Wings fall out of the playoff race for whatever reason, maybe ANA picks him to up to grab at least one righty shot for cheap. Wings keep him.

I'm not sure it's a case of showcasing other players just because it would make more sense to have White in the line-up during this time as he would help to make them look better. There are other guys who should sit if that's the case. Lashoff for example and pair one of Kindl or Quincey with a better player to help make them look stronger.

Just my thoughts.

Would love to have him back with Toronto, would be a much better option for top 4 minutes instead of Holzer and Kostka.

What would Wings fans be looking for from Toronto?

If Ken Holland could get the 1st rounder by itself that might be the best trade he's ever pulled off.

Just about no chance it happens.

Draft pick. 3rd or 4th round?

I really think the Wings would like to have a top 9 player in return for White + another roster player.

With Burns being out and the 2nd unit PP so freaking teribble for the Sharks I bet they would love to still have White in the lineup.

How about a straight swap for Murray?

Doubt many Detroit fans turn that down.

I honestly think White would already be back in the lineup had he kept his mouth shut, Babcock told him to work on things and he responded with that is how he plays right now is how he always plays and will always play. After a year and a half in the organization it should have dawned on him that nobody talks like this there. Even when Mursak was waived he took a higher road understanding that.

I wouldn't mind it but I'd rather get a 2013/2014 2nd+3rd for White. White is comparable to Oduya who got Winnipeg a 2nd+3rd last year so I don't see why White would return anything less. Defenceman usually get traded at a premium, especially guys who have had some success on the PP.

I can't argue with that, but we'd need to move a defensemen elsewhere first then anyway and I thought Murray might be a good fit in Detroit.
