Dealing Lidstrom in Wings best interest?

I know you may think I am crazy, but as a Wings fan I would love to see them deal Lidstrom for a marquee forward. Obviously they wouldn't deal him to the west, so I am thinking there are only a few teams in the east that would have something to offer. Any way you look at it Lidstrom is no worse than the 2nd best defenseman in the league. If the Wings could get a #1 center I think they would be better off. The only players I think qualify are LeCavalier or Richards, Drury, or a package including Antoine Vermette. This will probaly never happen of course, but I think it's worth thinking about. I do not believe the Wings have what it takes to compete in the playoffs.

What if they could get Drury and Campbell, or Drury and Biron in return? I think your right about Lidstrom retiring in Detroit, but his value is huge right now and I think we should capitalize on that. Although if we could get Richards for such a bargain, maybe we could contend once again. Of course there wouldn't be room under the cap for such a deal.

Wow you want another center? Zettaberg Daksuck and Lang are all centers and hate to play the wing. The wings will never deal Lidstrom, and for a center? lol at you.
Your quite the dumbass, I said #1 center, and I also said marquee forward, which makes your comment quite ignorant. B!tch!
