Detroit's Trade Deadline Playbook

02/01/2018 at 2:20pm EST

from TSN,

The Eastern Conference is a study in contrasts. The Atlantic Division is virtually wrapped up with three playoff teams and, most likely, five teams that are going to miss, which makes them likely sellers as the trade deadline approaches.

Scott Cullen breaks it down in the NHL Trade Deadline Playbook.

UFA in 2018:
LW David Booth, D Mike Green
RFA in 2018: LW Andreas Athanasiou, C Dylan Larkin, RW Anthony Mantha, RW Martin Frk, G Petr Mrazek
No-Trade Clauses: C Frans Nielsen (modified), RW Gustav Nyquist, RW Justin Abdelkader, C Darren Helm, D Mike Green, D Niklas Kronwall (modified), D Trevor Daley, G Jimmy Howard (modified)
Others of Interest: LW Tomas Tatar, D Xavier Ouellet
The Plan: As expected, the Red Wings are going to be sellers. Mike Green should be a popular commodity approaching the deadline, particularly for a contending team that might be more inclined to use him in a third-pairing and power play quarterback role. As Detroit attempts to rebuild, anything they can do to shed a bad contract or two would be advisable.

Cullen also lists Detroit's Top Prospects and the rest of the Eastern Confernce is there too.

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.
