No, it's not. A second is the throw-in a team who isn't serious about wanting to make a trade offers. A second is a big throw-in when you're talking about a mid-range rental. A 2nd or two gets you Douglas Murray. A 2nd gets you like 8-10 weeks of Radim Vrbata as a rental. What the f*** is a second round pick to Detroit if they're giving up Mantha or Bertuzzi? They'd have to use that asset to replace one of their prime-aged pieces that they just surrendered. Red Wings have had 10+ draft picks every year since 2017 and are slated to have 9 picks already for 2021 and are lined up to deal guys like Glendening, Bernier, possibly Bertuzzi, etc to land even more. I think they're quite aware of the need to trade to acquire picks. Also, no assets worth anything? Disregarding the guys who are the current NHL tweeners (like Rasmussen), the Wings have Dylan Larkin, Anthony Mantha, and Filip Hronek currently on the roster who are quite solid. They have very young players like Veleno, Johansson,Berggren, Raymond, and Seider as prospects. The last three are lighting it up like crazy. They still have the guy who was the #3OA graded prospect in 2018 by most people at the time of the draft in Zadina. Wings are still brutal because 75% of their best prospects for the future are still very young and not ready for prime-time yet and the guys they have keeping the roster spots warm are completely garbage. But because the Wings aren't f***ing stupid, they're not pulling an Edmonton and letting those promising young players just continue to take kicks to the dick.
