AlaskanTigersFan Posted May 1, 2022 Share Posted May 1, 2022 Question. I will be the first to admit, I know jack squat about the Red Wings in general. So bear with me. As I'm reading up on them though, it looks like the Red Wings are still 2-3 years away from being really in contention of playoffs. Would trading Larkin now before his big contract for a top 5 prospect and lets say 2 first rounders be worth it for the Red Wings (a lot of people were shocked when Mantha was traded, so there is a precedent of Yzerman trading good players in their prime [albeit not one as glorified as Larkin])? Is there a team that would do that that you could think of? What would Larkin's value be? (Here's a link to some of the top prospects I was just looking at). I'm just thinking if they cash in now and get a decent player on a rookie contract plus some extra high end draft capital, wouldn't that be worth it? Or is it just better to sit tight with him and play it out paying him big money? Would they wait and talk to a new coach before making a decision on this? Just curious on thoughts. Thanks.
