this was the rumor i heard awhile ago that i could see happening, but if he starts hitting they likely have a hard time not getting a greivance from the players union
as far as trading good players while contending (i.e. Miggy to Boston that was rumored some time ago) i highly doubt that happens. Illitch may be paying more than he wants to right now, but the dude still has deep pockets (Red Wings reaching the cup is a nice help) and he's passionite about winning. even if they fall out of it they arent going to trade him.
