    One thing, both players from Ottawa are UFA's.

    Dallas can't afford to move a Dman with Carrick + John's on IR and Methot a ? Every other day.

    Also we would only be interested in Nyquist because Vanek does nothing for us

    Not a fan of this swap. Would rather give up one of our "lesser" prospects + a draft pick for one of these guys (Nyquist).

    Not interested in Vanek or Nyquist and certainly not for the guys asked for here. I wouldn’t gives Johns straight up for either, let alone add.

    Realistically, if Honka doesn't project to be any better than Cholo/Hronek/McIsaac, there's not much point in Detroit doing this.

    Detroit's farther ahead hoping for a low 1st out of Nyquist and taking another swing at a Veleno/Berggren level prospect.

    Still cant afford to move a D and still dont want both... This counter has the exact same problem as OP. Also wouldnt move Johns for both straight up

    We don’t want Daley back.

    We’re not gonna move Johns unless the deal knocks our socks off. Most of us are quite high on him and he plays a very unique role on our defense.

    This is all assuming he ever even plays again. He’s suffering from some post-concussion symptoms that seem rather serious. His health is obviously the most important thing.

    Dont want either of those. Dont want Vanek. Could maybe use Nyquist but for way less than Johns

    Neither Honka nor Johns are the type of defenseman that Detroit needs. Not worth wasting the chance to trade Nyquist @ 50% to a desperate team at the deadline.

    Isn't Johns supposed to be good to very good defensively? Maybe that was when he 1st broke into the league, haven't really follow him though since.

    Nyquist for a 1st or 2nd by itself will more than do.

    With the above posters - would much prefer to get draft picks back for anyone the Wings would realistically trade than the kind of prospects those same players would likely return.

    I doubt Vanek or Nyquist go for anything other than picks.

    John's is a beauty. Perfect second pairing Dman. Big, physical, mobile and has a decent shot. Having some health problems as LT said above.

    But, I wouldnt trade him in this deal. I would however trade a 2nd and something for Nyquist

    He is. He is our 2nd best RD and a top 4 Dman for us when healthy. A 26 year old 2nd pairing RD is the the price for a rental winger. If Dallas goes after Nyquist it will be for a prospect+pick and not for our 4th best Dman who is currently injured

    Sharks would be interested in Nyquist at the TDL, if he was interested in waiving for a shot at the cup.

    in return, you give the Red Wings permission to speak to EK for 1 hour (gives Kenny a first opportunity to kick the tires on landing him in free agency) + 2nd.

    Nyquist is such an underrated player. Lol at a stars fan saying they dont want when he'd literally be their 4th best forward.
