Provost Posted January 28, 2017 Share Posted January 28, 2017 I see a lot of chatter about some of the names out there, but haven't heard much speculation about Detroit. They need a top 4 D badly.... we have a spare top 4 D. Seems like an fitting trade partner. I would propose something like: To Van: Nyquist To Det: Hutton 2nd or 3rd round pick Nyquist has fallen off a lot in the last couple seasons but even in a bad year is a top 6 winger, and is still young on a decent contract with term left. He is a great skater and maybe could recapture his scoring touch and be comfortable on a line with the Sedins now and one of our top lines in the future. Tatar is almost an equal player in terms of skill and trade value. The issue on our end is it adds a forward that needs to be protected and gives up a player that doesn't need to be. It would more likely be something that happens after the expansion draft. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
