The Wings Could Have Interest In These Players

12/10/2020 at 2:52pm EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Here are 10 players the Wings could pluck in the days ahead:

Alex Killorn, F, Tampa Bay: Killorn, 31, is an assistant captain, and scored a career-high 26 goals last season. With three more years at a manageable $4.45 million cap hit, Tampa could get decent value for Killorn, though the Wings may not be an ideal fit. A playoff contender might be interested, if it has some cap space. Killorn, with his leadership ability and playoff success, might be a good acquisition for a team closer to the Stanley Cup than the Wings.

Sami Vatanen, D, Carolina: Vatanen, 29, is still a top-four defenseman for many teams, but being injury-prone is a concern. Again, if you’re the Wings, or a contender, a short-term deal for low money could be an intriguing option.

more (paid) names include Andreas Athanasiou, Anthony Duclair and Mike Hoffman...
