"He has some ACL and MCL damage," general manager Ken Holland said Wednesday before the Red Wings hosted Columbus. "He's going to be examined Friday, and we'll know more about his status after we get some more opinions." Holland said Kronwall, 24, could have had a season-ending injury, though the team is hoping it's not that serious. The Red Wings open the season Wednesday at home against St. Louis. Under the NHL's previous collective bargaining agreement, the Red Wings might have traded draft picks and prospects for a high-priced defenseman, but that's not an option because of league's new salary cap. "We have to roll with what we have because of the CBA," Holland said. "We're certainly not going to be able to make a move to replace Niklas Kronwall."
Note to Wings fans, If you want to listen to the game tonight against the Blue Jackets, it is being streamed at WBNS The Fan.
