Needed- Defensemen

05/19/2020 at 12:49pm EDT

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Here are some potential unrestricted free agent defensemen who could interest the Wings:

Alex Pietrangelo, St. Louis
2019-20 stats:
16 goals, 36 assists, 52 points

Cap hit: $6.5 million

Analysis: Pietrangelo, 30, is one of the premier defensemen in the NHL and is the Blues’ captain. Yes, St. Louis will have some cap issues, but it’s difficult to imagine these two sides parting.

Torey Krug, Boston
2019-20 stats:
Nine goals, 40 assists, 49 points

Cap hit: $5.25 million

Analysis: Krug was coached in junior hockey by Wings’ coach Jeff Blashill, and the Livonia native starred at Michigan State. So, there’s definitely some local connections. But Krug has become a key cog in the Bruins’ roster, a gr owing leader, and the Bruins do have some available cap space.

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.
