The Wings ended up adding a center after all, and he's a local--33-year-old David Legwand, who carries a $4.5 million cap hit, in the last year of his contract:
Quoth TSN sans compensation:
The Nashville Predators have traded forward David Legwand to the Detroit Red Wings.
Legwand, 33, has appeared in 62 games with the Predators this season, scoring 10 goals and 30 assists.
In the final year of a six-year, $27 million deal ($4.5 million AAV), he is eligible to become an unrestricted free-agent on July 1.
Legwand was selected second overall at the 1998 NHL Entry Draft by the Predators and has spent his entire 16-year NHL career in Nashville.
In 956 career games with the Predators, Legwand has scored 210 goals and added 356 assists.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
