Time to Make a Trade

Team: 2022-23 Detroit Red Wings
Team Explanation
Detroit needs a true 2C. Unless Jersey is willing to move down or trade the 2 OV to Detroit I think one of these guys is the next best option. What would it take to land these guys? I understand none of these players will be dealt by their teams but I am curious what it would take for fans of these teams to move on from them. Only players off limits are Seider and Larkin. Be creative!

            Lundell and Thomas just flat out won't be traded, Pettersson would probably be way too expensive, Mercer is questionable as to whether he'll be good enough to support a lethal 1C/2C punch.

            PLD is your best bet, probably looking at 8OA + to get him though (and this is coming from an impartial fan)

            I'll counter with Mercer for Vrana.

            If Seider and Larkin are off limits, then it is pretty certain Dubois is off limits.

            Mercer for Raymond


            Tempting offer. I doubt Raymond is moved but our need at center is greater. Mercer and 2 OV for Raymond and 8 OV?

            My guess is Detroit adds a decent amount in this situation.

            JT Miller is available for the right price, unlike most of the other players you listed.

            LOL. Seider and Larkin are off limits, but you expect other teams not to have the same criteria? FYI Vancouver off limits are Pettersson, Hughes, Demko and Podkolzin. If you want to even start a discussion about these players, then Seider and Larkin need to be on the table.

            Blues aren't trading Thomas unless it's a severe overpay.

            Van isn't trading Pete.
            HOWEVER.
            Raymond + a 2023 Unprotected First is enough to listen on.

            That'd be like the Devils offering Zacha for Raymond

            I disagree. Vrana has performed significantly better than Zacha and is under contract for 2 years. He is what NJ hopes Holtz becomes in the NHL. Zacha is on a different tier than the other 3 players mentioned here.

            You went True 2C & picked Young Guys instead of the actual 2C’s on the Market
