Rory Boylen of Sportsnet lists 25 names we will hear about tomorrow...
Andreas Athanasiou, Detroit Red Wings
Contract: $3 million through 2019-20
An RFA at season’s end, Athanasiou is a complex case. After it looked like he broke through last year with a 30-goal season, he’s struggled again in this one with just 10 goals and 24 points in 46 games. But he’s got that upside and is one of the fastest skaters in the league.
Mike Green, Detroit Red Wings
Contract: $5.375 million through 2019-20
Green has a modified no-trade clause so there’s some control on his part. With just 11 points in 48 games, he is one of many Red Wings having a disaster of a season, but greener pastures could bring better production. He’s still a strong puck-mover who could thrive in a support role on a good team where he’d be surrounded by better talent. At the very least, he’d be an upgrade to many second PP units.
