Helly &gt; Husso
Schmidt &gt; Chiarot
Namestikov ~ Berggren (not good comparison to each other, but let's call them similar for arguments sake)
So the 2nd &amp; 3rd this year are the balance to get Schmidt, but a 1st that is 3 drafts away has limited value and does not get you Helly. Like Windjammer said, WPG does not do this; and DET should be jumping at this IF GMSY really thinks this is the year to go for the playoffs and Helly extends</div></div>

Detroit has three goalie prospects that are good in Cossa, Bednář, and Augustine. They don't need to pay over the top for a goalie that is on the wrong side of 30.

Namestnikov was traded away by Detroit only 18 months ago, they're not going to give up a young forward with top-6 potential to get him back.

Schmidt may be roughly equal to Chiarot but Chiarot is a 3rd pair defender or even a #7 in Detroit so there is no need to worry about him. We don't need the cap and we have players that will replace him in our own system, there's no need to trade him.

This trade makes zero sense for Detroit. We would be taking on almost 4 million in cap and we'd lose a 1st round pick, a 2nd round, pick, and a 3rd round pick and a good young player and a good goalie only to to get two old players we don't need nor want and a goalie that may or may not be better than what we already have but for how long?

Detroit is not going to be a contending team for another 3-4 years until when their top draft picks are maturing. They're not in a position to trade futures for players that will not be here when that time comes.
