from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
So where, and with whom, will the new guys play?
Left wing – center – right wing
Tyler Bertuzzi – Dylan Larkin – Anthony Mantha
This line isn’t expected to be broken apart at this point, and why should it?...
Vladislav Namestnikov – Robby Fabbri – Filip Zadina
A caveat here is the possibility of simply flipping Fabbri and Namestnikov....
LLeft defense – right defense
Danny DeKeyser – Filip Hronek
This is assuming DeKeyser is healthy after missing the majority of last season to a herniated disc.
But the Wings are confident DeKeyser will be able to play, and if he is, it’ll give the Wings a formidable top defensive pairing....
Marc Staal – Troy Stecher
The two offseason additions should help stabilize the defense.
Both Staal and Stecher had good defensive metrics last season and form a competitive shutdown pairing.
a bit more (paid) on each of the above and other combos...
