The Red Wings traded Thomas Vanek to the Florida Panthers in return for a third-round draft pick and defenseman Dylan McIlrath. Fans on Twitter are not pleased. They think Detroit didn't get nearly enough in return.
Ken Holland got absolutely shafted on the Vanek deal. Brutal return. AND we retained 50% of his salary

"Hey, people are saying that Vanek guy has some good trade value. Let me see if I can get basically nothing for him."-Ken Holland apparently
