Detroit Red Wings: 5 Deals That Could Change Detroit's Fortunes

The 2011-2012 NHL season has and has not treated the Detroit Red Wings kindly. After a quick start that saw the team win five in a row, the Wings have since lost four strait and are suddenly third in the competitive Central division.

A timely deal could certainly shake up things for the Wings. While GM Ken Holland won't make any knee jerk trades, he will be listening to any offers and considering things that could wake up his dormant club.

This is a team that has a solid, unquestionable core. Pavel Datsyuk, Henrik Zetterberg and Nicklas Lidstrom clearly lead the charge. However, so far that core has let the Wings down tremendously.

Zetterberg has only managed three points across nine games while Pavel Datsyuk has been an unsightly minus seven. That doesn't sound like a winning formula so far in the Motor City.

While these guys will pick up their games as the 82-game season wears on, the time for a distinct change may be arriving in Detroit.
