Right decision...

- Detroit, Michigan

Detroit management feels like they are one piece away to compete with the Blues...Even after our crazy start of the season we already loss 3 times to St-Louis..We feel like we are missing a top 9 forward who could score and we've been looking for one for weeks now...GM's are still undecided if they want to sell right now or wait until closer to the deadline to see if they still have a chance at the playoffs and teams in a playoff spot is looking at upgrading ...The market will be very small so the asking prices will be very high...We wouldn't be standing here talking about trading for a top 9 forward when all this time we had one in our own backward...We should of just had activated our top prospect Sean Monahan...Monahan is only 20 years old and we didn't think it he was ready for top 9 minutes and we didn't want to burn a year of his entry level contract...Monahan played hs first full NHL season last year and he finished with 22 goals, 34 points in 75 games....Even tho Monahan would look great on our squad at the moment we feel we made the right decision for his development...In the meantime i'm sure GM Dinelle will be active to find that top 9 forward...Outside of a top 9 forward we will also be looking at a cheap 7th/8th Defencemen around the trade deadline in case of injuries...Now that Aulie is back in the AHL we would like to add a cheaper replacement...
