Red Wings Trade Rumors: Paul Gaustad Not Headed To Detroit

Buffalo Sabres center Paul Gaustad has been one of the more talked about names of the trade deadline, but the Sabres have yet to find a place to send him as they try and rebuild their team a bit in a very down year. USA Today hockey writer Kevin Allen confirmed early on Monday that the Detroit Red Wings were not going to be his final landing spot.

The Sabres were earlier rumored to want as much as a first round draft pick for Gaustad, so it makes sense that the Wings would be out of the race for him, if they ever were even in it. Detroit has already spent a first rounder recently, sending one to the Tampa Bay Lightning in order to pick up former Avalanche defender Kyle Quincey. The lower line center only has 17 points for the Sabres so far in 2011/2012.

The trade deadline has almost arrived, it will hit at 3 p.m. Eastern time on Monday.
