Detroit's Defense Next Season

04/08/2019 at 9:47am EDT

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

The Red Wings are set in goal for next season with Jimmy Howard and Jonathan Bernier signed.

The biggest concern continues to be defense, where there is a lack of high-end talent on the roster and in the system.

Veterans Mike Green, Danny DeKeyser, Jonathan Ericsson and Trevor Daley are under contract for next season. Kronwall will take time to decide if he wants to play another season – the club appears to want him back.

It wouldn’t leave much room for youth. But Filip Hronek and Madison Bowey played well down the stretch. Dennis Cholowski, their top pick in 2016 who started strong but was sent to Grand Rapids in mid-February, also will compete for a spot in training camp.

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.
