Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press answers a few questions..
This question is about the Wings bringing in a veteran for a playoff run (really).
I don’t see any scenario in which the Wings are buyers at the Feb. 26 trade deadline. If they manage to do what they say they want to do — go on a run — and work their way into the Eastern Conference playoff picture (which, as I wrote this past weekend, I find doubtful), maybe they hold onto Mike Green, their top trade asset. Ultimately, though, I foresee the Wings will sell where possible. The front office knows the Wings are not contenders, that what the organization needs is a high-end draft pick.The Wings were not mathematically eliminated last year until March 28, but still sold at the March 1 trade deadline. The same needs to happen this year.
