from Frank Seravalli of the Daily Faceoff,
Primary Objective: Second line center
Briefing: One by one, GM Steve Yzerman has checked the positional boxes in his methodical rebuild of the Red Wings. He has a franchise defenseman blossoming in Moritz Seider, another Calder candidate on the wing in Lucas Raymond, and Alex Nedeljkovic is the perfect goaltender of the present to ultimately pass the torch to goaltender of the future Sebastian Cossa. The Wings desperately need a second line center, the one-two punch to go with Dylan Larkin down the middle. Because right now, it’s a big drop off from Larkin to Pius Suter. Whether it’s now or this summer, that has to be the top priority. Other than that, don’t expect a ton from the Wings at the deadline, unless a decent return can be fetched for their pending UFAs. Yzerman made it clear last year that he’d rather keep a competitive environment.
Pieces potentially on the move: Nick Leddy, Troy Stecher, Marc Staal (NMC), Vladislav Namestnikov
