Pay Or Trade Anthony Mantha?

Ryan Dixon of Sportsnet has one question for every Eastern Conference team,

Detroit Red Wings: How much do they like Anthony Mantha?

The Wings moved on from one 25-year-old goal-scorer when they dealt Andreas Athanasiou to the Oilers in February: Now it’s time to make a call on another one in Mantha. The 20th overall pick in 2013 is set to become an RFA with arbitration rights. He’s young enough that if the Wings believe the best is yet to come for a guy who scored at a 30-goal pace last season, they should try to get him on a long-term deal. If not, Mantha holds value on the trade market and could be flipped for another piece or two that helps with the long-term project GM Steve Yzerman is undertaking in Michigan.

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.
