    I would like to see the Wings make a play to get Glencross from the Flames, Clutterbuck from the Wild and Yandle from the Yotes.
    Yes it would be costly in terms of roster players,picks and prospects but I believe that these players would help the Wings immediately and in the long term as well.

    The Marlies scratched Tim Connolly today. He could be on the move.
    Too whom and why would be the question.Buyer beware!
