Red Wings reportedly made offer for Trouba in summer
"I know that Cheveldayoff received several offers during the summer. I know that one came from Detroit," said Dreger. "I'm told that it involved two of their higher-level forwards, and Holland wasn't willing or able to stomach that. As much as the Detroit Red Wings need defense, they can't move out multiple pieces of scoring, otherwise they fill one hole and dig another.
"But none of the offers that were made on Trouba were obviously good enough, or we wouldn't be having this conversation. Perhaps he'd be on to greener pastures, from his mindset."
In the meantime Trouba will not be attending Jets training camp as he awaits a trade out of Winnipeg.
