I know I’ll get crushed for this opinion, but the Wings should sign DeAngelo after he clears waivers and is bought out. A simple one year prove it, league minimum two way deal. If there’s an issue simply bury him in the AHL and don’t blink an eye.

Marc Staal is as well respected around the league as it gets. He was DeAngelo’s on-ice partner most of the past two seasons before the veteran was sent to Detroit this offseason. The pair developed a bond off the ice, as well.

“There has never been any indication at all that Tony has racist tendencies,” No. 18 told The Post. “I hear these things about him, and it’s as if they’re talking about a different person. The guys here in Detroit, they’re all super-curious about him.

...“The last few years especially, since Trump, there’s been a lot of back-and-forth from both sides in conversations within the room,” No. 18 said. “But guys never got offended. Tony doesn’t back down, that’s just who he is, but politics never became an issue on our team.”

You want to turn into the Lions and skip over talent and take choir boys….just look how well that generally serves teams.

Not going to “crush you” but don’t see it happening for good reason. Its one thing to take a flyer if this locker room built for it, and the kid has supreme talent, its another when he’s simply filler talent, and we have a young team.  Yzerman will keep the profile low as we go.
