Trade Options

Craig Custance of The Athletic with 20 big names who could be traded...

He mentions Jimmy Howard but the Wings would want a premium for him (1st round pick) and right now it is better to wait to see if a playoff team goalie gets injured, thereby increasing the chances for trade.

He also mentions...

Gustav Nyquist, Red Wings: Nyquist has a no-trade and hasn’t been approached yet about waiving it, but it’s still early on that front. Outside of Dylan Larkin, he’s been the Red Wings’ best forward this season, the final year of his contract that comes with a $4.75 million cap hit. He’s a legit top-six forward, who is more playmaker than goal scorer so needs the right players around him to capitalize on his skill set. The problem for Detroit is that Nyquist doesn’t necessarily stand out compared to the other available wingers. “There are a number of pieces (available) that are the equivalent to Nyquist,” said one GM. The Oilers might be a good fit for Nyquist.

more (paid) names...

I’d trade Helm to Edmonton for Jesse Puljujarvi

The kid is only 20, had a great season last year for a rookie, and is getting dicked with as far as icetime goes this season.

If they won’t play him and give him half a chance, we’ll take him.
Kids got some moves and a quick hard snap shot.

So would I, but only if Chiarelli balks at Helm for McDavid first.

That seems like a pipe dream. Maybe they’d be willing to go for it if Detroit agrees to pay 1/2 of Helm’s salary. Frankly I’d be willing to do that to move on from the mistake that was Helm’s last contract.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
