The Trade Deadline Is A Week Away And The Calder Race

03/14/2022 at 10:32am EDT

Next Monday at 3pm ET the deadline to make trades expires.

Most here believe UFA Nick Leddy will be moved but how about the other UFAs?

Vladislav Namestnikov, Sam Gagner, Marc Staal, Troy Stecher, Danny DeKeyser and Carter Rowney.

Will the Wings trade others?

Your turn to weigh in and what kind of return do you expect?

from Mike G. Morreale of NHL.com,

To mark the three-quarter point of the 2021-22 regular season, NHL.com is running its fourth installment of the Trophy Tracker series. Today, we look at the race for the Calder Trophy, given annually to the NHL rookie of the year as selected in a poll by the Professional Hockey Writers Association.

Moritz Seider has gone from surprise selection to arguably the best defenseman from the 2019 NHL Draft.

Seider, who was the second defenseman off the board when chosen No. 6 by the Detroit Red Wings, leads all players at the position from that draft in just about every statistical category, including points (41), assists (36), power-play points (17), blocked shots (116) and hits (96). His five goals are tied for first with Colorado Avalanche defenseman Bowen Byram, selected with the No. 4 pick in the 2019 draft.

Seider is first among all NHL rookies this season in assists (36) and in average ice time (23:02 per game), and he is fourth with 41 points in 59 games.

A right-hand shot who plays on Detroit's top defense pair with Nick Leddy, Seider is the favorite among NHL.com writers for the Calder Trophy as NHL rookie of the year at the three-quarter mark of the season, receiving 70 voting points, including 13 of 15 first-place votes.

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.
