Buyout Options For The Wings

07/08/2021 at 2:04pm EDT

from Kevin Allen of DetroitHockeyNow,

Yzerman’s primary buyout options are Frans Nielsen and Danny Dekeyser. He could even consider Richard Panik who was traded to Detroit in the Anthony Mantha-Jakub Vrana swap. The Caps moved him because he didn’t fit well in Washington.

But he may as well wait to see who the Seattle Kraken selects in the expansion draft before he makes a buyout decision. It’s highly unlikely that Kraken GM Ron Francis would select Dekeyser or Nielsen. However, it makes sense to delay buyout decisions to see whether Francis takes a forward or defenseman off Detroit’s roster.

The Red Wings don’t have an urgent reason to buy out anyone. Even after they re-sign their restricted free agents, the Red Wings will have ample cap space to do whatever they need to do. Depending on whether they re-sign some of their unrestricted free agents, such as Luke Glendening or Jonathan Bernier or Marc Staal, the could end up with $27 million in cap space.

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.
