Wings Stay Idle for Trade Deadline

winged_wheelRemember what our trade deadline move was last year?  Getting Franzen back.

Looks like our move this year will be getting Brad Stuart, Valtteri Filppula, Mike Modano, and eventually Chris Ogood back.  The Red Wings really haven’t made any deadline deals since 2008 when they plucked Brad Stuart away from the Los Angeles Kings for a 3rd round draft pick…that was a good deal.

Remember the lineup we had to start the season?

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Franzen-Filppula-Bertuzzi
Hudler-Modano-Cleary
Helm-Draper-Eaves

Lidstrom-Rafalski
Kronwall-Stuart
Salei-Ericsson

Howard
Osgood

Now maybe that isn’t the exact combinations that were being used…but look at that lineup.  How would you feel in a seven game series with anyone against THAT lineup.

Sure, the trade deadline is usually pretty boring for Red Wings fans…but that’s a good thing – because it means we don’t have to scramble to full holes in our roster.

I cannot wait for this team to be back at full strength.
