<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>arafay</b></div><div>AA got 2 seconds and gagner. Therefore, a former second and a 2nd is well reasonable. Also keep in mind that AA has actually been given a chance in the top 6. Roslovic has that production playing with a couple of stone hands in copp and Lowry. Therefore, I think this price is reasonable.

Also, for the reasons you described above, I’m interested in toumositto not Lindstrom. Toumositto is what we need long term, not lindstrom (we already have a couple of players like him in lundmark and kovacevic). AA also got less because he might not have lived up to his QO. Whichever team trades for Roslovic is likely getting him on a bridge for 1-3 season at 2-3M per.

Finally, Roslovic isn’t MIA. He doesn’t have a contract so he doesn’t need to be on the jets. It’s called holding out. RFA’s do it all the time.</div></div>

You are right it was 2 2nds that was my bad. With AA you have to take in to account that Detroit was historically bad last season and it's much harder to score on a bad team. AA did play in the top 6 last season but Detroit's top 6 and Winnipeg's top 6 aren't even close. Would Detroit's top line of Mantha-Larkin-Bertuzzi even be the 2nd line in Winnipeg? Playing in the top 6 also means you're going up against your opponents best players every night. While Roslovic did't get very much time in the top 6 but he did play 25 more games and comparing their TOI Roslovic had almost 5 more hours ice time than AA. For those same reasons is why Yzerman most likely won't trade Toumositto. The MIA comment I was just being oblique. If you look at Yzerman's history when dealing with holdouts he moves them as quickly as he can.
