‘Three Things’: One more Adidas jersey tease; Khan on the ‘unprotected’ and Jensen’s ‘numbers’

Of Red Wings-related note this afternoon:

1. The Wings posted one final Adidas jersey tease ahead of tomorrow's league-wide revealing of the NHL's new jerseys:

2. MLive's Ansar Khan examined the Wings' unprotected expansion draft players as they may appeal to the Vegas Golden Knights:

Petr Mrazek

Why he’d appeal to Vegas: Despite struggling the past year-and-a-half, he has shown the ability to excel and has enticing upside at age 25. Could also be used as a trade chip.

Why he wouldn’t: Recent performance has raised red flags. There are better starting options available (namely Marc-Andre Fleury of Pittsburgh) and $4 million is too much to pay for a back-up. Trading him could prove difficult in a tough goalie market.

3. And DetroitRedWings.com's Dana Wakiji looked back at Nick Jensen's 2016-17 season "By the Numbers":

2 - Jensen was second to Mike Green in scoring among Wings defensemen. Green had 14 goals and 22 assists in 72 games. Jensen finished with four goals and nine assists.

49 - Although he didn't join the team until December, Jensen finished with 49 games and ended the season on the top pair with Danny DeKeyser.

NHL Tonight has Vegas picking Martin Frk

This seems like a brain dead move when you consider Vegas could probably claim him off waivers prior to the season.
