Team: 2021-22 Detroit Red Wings
Team Explanation
Curious if they could use their picks and cap space to compete next year.
No idea who Seattle would take so didn't try that.

I know Detroit wouldn't do any of these trades.

Maybe make the playoffs for a few years but not do anything substantial

Agreed. I'm not super high on Driedger being the answer for a team as a starter. Could absolutely prove me wrong, but every time I watch him I think "Man, this guy has Carter Hutton written all over him. Excellent in a super small sample size of games played, and now he's likely going to get paid.

Don't get me wrong, he seems like a cool dude, and I'm definitely hoping that he can keep it up, because it's kind of a cool story, but yeah...don't buyer beware when you blow a bunch of money on a goalie that has 38 career games played in the NHL.

laugh laugh Seth jones is a one year rental he's not getting that kind of return. Detroit passes on the Stamkos deal. Vrana and Hronek get far more $$ then that.
