Top 2023 UFAs

Ryan Dixon of Sporfsnet takes a look at the top UFA in 2023;  One of them is...

Dylan Larkin, Detroit Red Wings

Would the Michigan boy and team captain bolt just as things are starting to turn around? At some point, the guy who grew up cheering for Cup-winning clubs in Detroit is going to want some playoff action of his own beyond the five-game taste he got as a 19-year-old in 2016.

Larkin, who just turned 26 on July 30, would command all kinds of attention on the open market given what he’s achieved playing for subpar squads in Detroit. Still, it’s tough to imagine he doesn’t re-sign banking on the next chapter being far more enjoyable than the first seven years of his career.

the other names...

Interesting that Bertuzzi’s name didn’t make the cut. He’s the kind of player teams with serious Cup aspirations will be lining up to bring aboard. If the Wings feel the need to trade him, I hope it can be done before the season and not at the trade deadline because it’ll bring a larger return.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
