The Red Wings At The Trade Deadline

03/20/2022 at 9:21am EDT

from Sportsnet,

In preparation for what's to come, we've compiled all the details you might need to know about each of the NHL's 32 teams at the deadline....

DETROIT RED WINGS

Status: Seller with surprise potential

Deadline Cap Space: $55,197,460

2022 Draft Picks: DET 1, DET 2, WSH 2, DET 3, DET 4, COL 4, VGK 4, DET 5, DET 7

Team needs: Futures, young NHLers

Potentially available: Nick Leddy, Thomas Greiss, Dylan Larkin, Tyler Bertuzzi, Filip Zadina, Marc Staal

From 32 Thoughts, The Podcast: "The thing with Yzerman is that he doesn't think like a lot of us do. He's very analytical, determined in his thinking. He's not afraid to make decisions that the rest of us aren't willing to make."

Outlook: GM Steve Yzerman shocked us all last season with the last-minute trade of Anthony Mantha for Jakub Vrana (and futures). The Red Wings are better this season, though still a distance away from challenging for the playoffs. Yzerman undoubtedly will keep his eyes on the future here, but nothing should surprise us.

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.
