Take away the name and the number, and the Red Wings have an asset, worth 25 goals and about 55 points. They learned that they would not be able to employ that asset last week, and thus needed to immediately go about finding a way to replace those 25 goals and 55 points by signing either one or two players.
The NHL chose to make an issue of the asset’s availability, and as such, the NHL has tied Detroit’s hands regarding whether it can spend its money retaining the asset or replacing the asset, either via free agent replacements or trading said asset. The sooner that this issue can reach a conclusion, regardless of its result/resolution, the better for the Red Wings. That’s the bottom line.
