Wow, that's a big one.

Guilt Trip:
That's big...both are good players.

Nik:
Dang. That's legit. I think he can be good.

CarltonTheBear:
It's a little surprising to see Detroit move Mantha but at the same time he turns 27 years old this September and the Wings are probably at least 3 years from being a legit playoff team so I can understand why they wanted to turn him into assets that'll help them more than a 30+ year old Mantha might.

Vrana's also a pretty decent player to fill his spot in the meantime (and a year and a half younger).

bustaheims:
Didn't expect a deal of this magnitude this year.

Huge win for Detroit, I'd say. Vrana produces on a similar level to Mantha, and they get 1st and 2nd round picks! Wow.
