It appears our day is over and the Wings pretty much stood pat.  However, just as I sort of feared, each of our opposition tuned up for the playoffs.   Nashville especially.  Let's take a look at what each of our enemies got, after the break:  Nashville:  Not only did they pick up Andrei Kostitsyn, but they also picked up the guy that many Detroit fans wanted: Gaustad.    The Sabres have acquired a first-round pick from Nashville in exchange for Paul Gaustad and a fourth-round pick, according to @TSNBobMcKenzie That team just got damn good.  Chicago:  Little brother didn't do crap for their piss poor goaltending, but they did address some defensive weakness, picking up Johnny Oduya for a 2nd and 3rd round pick.   Again, focusing on short term.  I thought that was a lot to give up for a decent at best player. San Jose:  Those divers out in California picked up Daniel Winnik and T.J. Galiardi from Colorado for McGinn and Mike Connelly and Michael Sgarbossa (via Dater...
