added 1:05pm, from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Quick update following Detroit Red Wings practice Thursday at Joe Louis Arena, in preparation for Friday's home game vs. Minnesota:

Coach Mike Babcock has split up Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg, in an effort to boost the sputtering offense (four goals in three games).

but given the constraints of the CBA, Detroit is doing very well…

Your definition of “very well” is pretty loose…

Agreed.  That’s pretty much pie-in-the-sky thinking.  Besides, I’d be hard-pressed to believe that there is a GM in the league foolish enough to part with ANY significant assets to acquire a player the likes of Kyle Queasy.  You’d be damn lucky to get a bag of donuts in return.  Although, now that i think of it, I do enjoy a good donut now and then.

but I think the Wings have a chance at getting another reload to work and I want to see if it’s actually possible before I call for them to gut the foundation and start from scratch.

I’m on board that train.

They got Q.. for a draft pick….. Risk?

No risk in that.  In five years Kyle Quincey is going to be a fading memory.  What’s the alternative?  Keep the first rounder and in five years he gets his second contract, which is one-way, comes to camp and almost makes the roster, instead being waived in favour of a 45-year old Ray Whitney?

Big risk.

You’re being far too kind.

@Garth - i know it will sound like I’m toeing the party line, but we are in the mix every year. Well, last year I was not comfortable with our first round match-up… Again, name a non-lottery, ex bottom-feeder them that does better than us…

once we sort out the PK and the PP starts scoring, we should be fine.

how many years have we been saying that?

I’d say it’s longer, but I’ll stipulate one year to make the obvious point…

one MONTH is too long.

I’d say it’s longer,

So it extends to the year where Detroit had the #5 power play in the league?
