Anyone heard anythign else about it?
What could we possibly get from them to make us consider that? Smith/ Kindl kinda intrigue me, but other then that we would need bottom six depth and giving away Patches doesn't help us

Is that a bad attempt to start a rumor?

I ask because I don't see how Pacioretty could be traded at this point. You got the wrong Italian there.

It makes sense cause I'm sure they saw plenty of him since he played at Michigan,what it would take to get him well that's a different thing

Howard has played very well for the Wings so they have no reason to trade for Price

Price's stock is at the lowest right now,every GM is on this even if they don't have a need for a goalie

Price in Detroit would be Roy V2.0...Well perhaps not Roy but maybe Ribeiro or LeClair V2.0

I know they are struggling this season, (for the 1st time in almost 20 year!) but they'll bounce back for sure, they have a awesome core of players.

It's all about who you receive, not necessarily who you trade. It became the "Roy" trade when we received an average goalie and 2 3rd liners for one of the best goalie that has ever played the game.

The Ribeiro trade was THAT awful 'cause of Niinimaa. You succeed in getting a guy like Trevor Daley and a 1st round pick that became Kris Letang and you don't talk a whole lot about Ribeiro. Mind you, Ribeiro was not worth that much. But I'm just saying that it's a lot about who you receive.

And the clear example is the Latendresse-Pouliot trade. You would have seen a riot if Latendresse with his record would have been traded for a plugger. It became a fine trade 'cause of who we received.

You end up trading Price for Steve Mason and Derick Brassard, Steve Mason regains his old form and become the great goalie he was and Brassard explodes, and even if Price ends up great, it wouldn't be that much of a problem. Again, this is not a trade proposal. Just talking about another example of how it wouldn't be that bad.

Last time I checked, I did not see that Price has already won two Stanley Cups or won any individual Award at NHL level (don't bring the All Star Game, please !).

it's all about POTENTIAL...

Gee one would think that it would require a pretty huge package to get those two together out of Montreal.

A quick scan of the Wings roster and i could see us being interested in:

Johan Franzen
Jonathan Ericsson
Justin Abdelkader
Darren Helm
Jakub Kindl
Chris Osgood (as mentor/partner for Halak)

Certainly doesn't seem like a fit to me, but who knows...

Do you think we would get an established your star for Price? I don't think we will so it makes it a very bad time to trade him. We won't get a Stamkos or Tavares, yet Price has as much of a chance of carrying a team to a cup than they do.

Roy was already a sure HOF when he got traded.

Great comparison

Great comparison
Yeah great reading skills that was the entire point of my post Price = Roy.

They would be similar by we give up a great goaltender and we receive sweet **** all. Therefore we get ***** again just like the Roy trade.

Price is not a great goaltender, Price can become a great goaltender.

Right now he is a young goaltender with great potential who has some weaknesses, is inconsistent and not focused 100% of the time and has supposedly some attitude problems (RUmours in the media, Markov's words to him, etc..)

That's why you either keep both or trade Halak. If you make a mistake and Halak reaches his maximum potential, you haven't traded away the next Roy/Luongo/Brodeur, but that's the case if you trade Price and he reaches his.

Not disagreeing with you guys on that at all. If possible I would keep both until it is crystal clear who you have to keep.

Yes, Price as has as much chance. But he's not there yet. I can name you a lot of players who can also do just that not named Tavares. And it's possible that Price doesn't fulfill the expectations and the ones we get do. Don't get me wrong though, I'm not for trading Price.

What happens if you end up trading Vokoun to keep Garon? Since both ways are equally possible at this point, it is obviously way too early to trade either.

Latest Eklund News

*On James Wisniewski. The BLackhawks and Canadiens are rumoured to be interested in the Anaheim D-man.

*On Frolov... There are rumors he is headed to Montreal if Whitney is signed. I am hearing Frolov if off the table right now. In fact I do know LA could have had Kovalchuk for Frolov and they chose to keep him.
