The Detroit Red Wings have sent forward Thomas Vanek to the Florida Panthers.

In return, Detroit gets a 3rd round pick and a prospect, which seems like a steal for the Panthers. If this is all Detroit got for Vanek, Holland will get skewered by fans. More to come as this deal is just now breaking and the trade call has not gone through yet.
