Trade Categories For The Detroit Red Wings

from Max Bultman of Athletic,

After a draft pick-laden deal at last year’s deadline, Detroit once again has a handful of players who could draw interest come February — or even sooner.

Here’s an early look at which Red Wings players could be available, and which ones will make the most sense for potential trade partners.

The most likely option

Gustav Nyquist: This one just makes sense. Nyquist has been really good this year as a playmaker — so good that he’s second on the team in points (15) despite having just two goals. His career-low 4.2 shooting percentage suggests he’s due for positive regression, too, and adding him to a contender would likely surround him with even more weapons. It’s seldom easy to part with a player you drafted and developed into an impact NHLer, but with an expiring contract, it just makes sense to get something in return for the gifted Swedish winger. He could be appealing to almost any contender, though fair warning that a Tomas Tatar-like return would still be wishful thinking.

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.
