A High Probability Of Being Traded

So says Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

F Bobby Ryan

Stats: 6 goals, 7 assists, minus-10 in 27 games.

Contract: In last year ($1 million salary & cap hit).

Buzz: Ryan projects to garner significant interest because he’s a 6-2, 208-pound forward who shoots right and has more than a decade’s worth of history as a productive player at even strength and on man advantages. He’s not the player he was in his prime but makes little. The best part for the Wings is Ryan would be highly likely to re-sign in the offseason.

Trade probability: High.

D Marc Staal

Stats: 2 goals, 2 assists, minus-3 in 28 games.

Contract: In last year ($4.2 million salary/$5.7 million cap hit).

Buzz: Who doesn’t love adding a big (6-4, 209) defenseman with experience at the deadline? Staal, 34, has topped 900 regular-season games and 100 playoff games. He’s an in-your-face guy who likes to aggravate. Yzerman acquired Staal in October as an add-on in a trade with the New York Rangers that at the time yielded a second-round pick. Staal projects to bring another draft pick to the rebuild (though the Wings may have to retain some of his salary).

Trade probability: High.

more ($$$) names, but the above were the only players listed with a high probability.

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.
