10:52 AM ET 10.18 | Yes, the Red Wings should trade Pavel Datsyuk if the right deal comes along. In recent weeks the debate of whether or not to ship Datsyuk out of town is an issue that has been raised on more than one occasion. It's not a debate of who the best player on the Red Wings is ??? Datsyuk is indisputably the most valuable asset on the team. His offensive zone prowess combined with his defensive puck plundering skills separates him from every other player in the league. In Datsyuk, the Red Wings have the most complete hockey player on the planet. Nevertheless, when considering the state of the Red Wings defense and the fact that Datsyuk isn't getting any younger at 34 years of age, this might be the perfect time for Ken Holland to pull the trigger on a blockbuster move.

I hate it when reality kicks in.

Like hopping out of a car while it's still moving.

Cannot imagine The Datsyuk anywhere else.

My thoughts exactly.....get an agreement done, then worry about your trades.
