We are inching closer to the thoughts of the summer in Detroit, with the appearance of Tigers baseball, breaking out of the ice age, and an absence of Red Wings hockey. Don’t get your hopes up, it’s not quite summer yet, but it feels like a good time to attend to one of the most exciting aspects of the offseason – free agent and trade rumors. This is the time when we first catch wind of the tittle-tattle of the possible movement of players from one team to the next, and however realistic they may seem, the thought of a player dressing in your favorite sweater having an uplifting or haunting effect on you is quite the rush. The Stanley Cup Playoffs are still in session, but the Red Wings fan base is dormant, and here the topic of free agents and trades may stir up some emotion and excitement to hold it over until October.

    Just so everyone is aware. Jimmy Howard has a no movement clause. He cannot be traded unless he waives it. so basically its the Islanders or nothing.

    Niskanen is going to cost more than he is worth. Subban is worth every penny but would be shot down by Montreal as soon as he signs.

    The Wings shouldn’t go after a forward not named Hossa in free agency and only go after Hossa if he is bought out by Chicago. which isn’t likely

    one guy I do have a little interest in (if Alfie leaves) is Dany Heatley if he is willing to sign a 2 year deal for less than 3 mil. could be a low risk high reward move.
