When Will The Moves Start For The Detroit Red Wings?

01/02/2019 at 10:29am EST

Max Bultman has some questions and answers regarding the Wings and probably the most important is...

Will Ken Holland wait it out deep into February, or try and strike soon? With the Red Wings dropping further down the standings, any momentary indulgences of wild card dreams must be dwindling, which could make an earlier deal more attractive; for a player on an expiring deal, more games left should equal more value. The counter argument is that dealing soon eliminates the desperation factor from trade partners, because contending teams still have all kinds of time and avenues available to them. But that could work both ways, too, if a seller ends up really needing to move someone late.

This might be the hardest question to answer because of all the variables, but it’s probably the most important.

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.
