They Could Be Moved During The Season

10/01/2018 at 10:38am EDT

from Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic,

Here’s a look at 10 players who might be dealt before Feb. 25:

Gustav Nyquist, Detroit Red Wings: The 29-year-old forward is a UFA July 1 and while he’s hardly an aging asset, given where the Red Wings are headed with their rebuild it probably doesn’t make sense to spend future cap space on him unless it’s a short-term deal. I’m not saying the Red Wings wouldn’t do that but I just feel like this is headed for a trade before Feb. 25, mind you the Swedish forward has a no-trade clause so he has a say in it. He’d be the kind of guy that would fit in well in a place like San Jose, in my mind, if the all-in Sharks want to add depth to their top-nine group.

Jimmy Howard, Detroit Red Wings: Bobrovsky’s potential presence on the trade market later this season would not be good news for the Red Wings in their attempts to perhaps find a home for the pending UFA netminder Howard. The goalie market is normally tight as it is barring a slew of injuries. Bobrovsky re-signing in Columbus during the season would be the greatest news of all for Detroit.

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.
