from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,
The Detroit Red Wings are nine points behind the Boston Bruins for a playoff spot in the Atlantic Division. To make matters worse, the Bruins have four games in hand.
The chance of earning a playoff spot is slim. But the Detroit Red Wings will be an interesting team to watch in the second half of the season for a variety of reasons. Here are 10 storylines to follow:...
Keep in mind that you never hear about what Yzerman is going to do before he does it. He plays his cards as close to his vest as any general manager in the NHL, including Lou Lamoriello and David Poile.
Teams are looking to move salary and Yzerman may be looking to add a defenseman who can play in their top six next season and beyond. Yzerman has poked around the marketplace. He did kick the tires on Jakob Chychrun. But can’t imagine he would be willing to give up his first round pick. That’s one of the Coyotes’ demands.
It’s uncertain whether Yzerman will get someone, because it might be easier in the offseason. But it’s a possibility.
