That first trade doesn't feel very satisfying, trading our starter for some (granted big, young) complementary pieces.

I think the 2nd trade could work with Ballard+ for Filppula, since the Wings still need a Top 4 D-man, and if he starts off hot he could become a hot commodity. If they won't deal Val then hopefully we could get Tatar+.

Not bad considering some of the trades proposed on this site. I wouldn't feel completely burned if we traded Luongo for those pieces. I am not too sure if Detroit would be willing to make that trade though, even though they are desperate for defense. But then again they are getting a project player in Raymond, who could potentially be a 20 goal scorer (consistently), who plays a defensive system well, and is good at breaking out and into the oppositions zone. I am not overvaluing Raymond here, just pointing out that he has the potential to be better, so for a trade like Ballard for Filppula, they are still getting a forward back who can fill in, while also gaining a defenseman.

That's not to say Detroit would make the trade though. Or that we even should trade Ballard. Maybe this is the season he breaks out again?
