    First off the heading should say Speculation, Neither Eklund nor NHL Trade Rumors are legit sources.

    In this hypothetical dream trade, I'd offer AA+Cholo+Ras+1st+4th & a throw in like Hicketts. That'd be my limit. Tampa kindly declines.

    I'm sick of gender ambiguous names like Ayden, Camden, Brook, whatever.

    I once taught a ski lesson, had the lesson sheet, couldn't figure out if I was teaching boys or girls or something in between. The whole freakin' group...

    … and stay off my lawn, damn it!!!

    This is not a legit source, would be nice if folks would stop posting it as one and getting my hopes up.

    For Point, that’s not quite a bit. That’s the bare minimum to not get laughed off the phone. And even then, I think Briesbois just answers the call and listens cause it’s his old boss and then hangs up and wonders if he was just prankes

    I know right, he must have the HF owners dirty secrets or something to even still have a tag as a "source"! Every time I see a rumour was from him, I say to myself, "well, that is one trade or signing that isn't happening!"

    I'd do this. Leaves the team with Zadina/Mantha/Bertuzzi/Rasmussen plus the two centers you mentioned to build the top two lines around.

    Develop a few more guys we just drafted and use some money this next off-season on defense and things start to shape up quickly.

    Nope

    Are we sure he simply isn't a product of playing with or behind kucherov and Stamkos?

    Giving away multiple high end pieces plus a 1st is assine.

    I never said they would accept it, they probably wouldn't......I even said as much in a Point thread on the main boards a few weeks ago (if you don't believe me). The Lightning aren't going to accept a collection of lesser pieces for Point....but that's about the highest I would be willing to go from the Red Wings perspective. If that's not enough, so be it.

    It's definitely quite a bit from the Red Wings' perspective, which is all that matters in the context of the statement I made (that it would kill our depth of prospects/young players).

    No team will offer an exact equal of value player today.

    Tampas goal, if they ever did make such a trade, would be to acquire enough good younger assets/picks who one day would provide more

    He's probably not quite a 40 goal/90 point player without playing on Kucherov's line, but he's a damn good player regardless.

    Nothing but rumor from clickbait sites. Yzerman hasn't tried to make a splash yet. He's probably holding true to his intro presser comments.
