Trade Deadline looms. Written by hgimn - March 22nd, 2009

Sergei Gonchar

As the 2008-2009 Cmhl trade deadline nears the Red Wings are figured to be active sellers.They are currently tied for last place in the league with the Colorado Avalanche with 49 points through 64 games this season.Many have questioned the path that Gm Kemmer has led the team down in the past few seasons,but critics could be silenced if the Wings swing some deadline deals.

Andy McDonald

Some of the team's problems have been linked to the trading of draft picks and younger players for veterns to get the job done now,instead of down the road.This trend has slowed down as of late,and the Wings retain ther 1st and 2nd round picks this year,as well as Philly's 3rd this season.If Kemmer is to make a deal,look for him to bring in younger players,and draft picks,to try and make up for past mistakes.The team does have some attractive pieces that could be moved such as Andy McDonald and even team captain Sergei Gonchar.Gonchar's name has been in the rumour mill all season and looks to be on the way out of the motorcity.McDonald on the other hand,hasn't been the force that he was with the team for the first few games with the team earlier this season.Look for Kemmer to try and pick up another defensemen to play with the new addition of Alexei Semenov on the 2nd or 3rd pairing,a scoring forward,and some more defense oriented players.Also look for the additon of some draft picks for the upcoming draft,as it is quite deep.
