The Next 18 Months - The Red Wings’ Road Back - Part 2

After Part 1, which discusses how the Detroit Red Wings should manage the NHL Expansion draft, the NHL Entry draft, and free agency, here’s where the Wings would stand entering the 2017-2018 season: The Wings have lost one of Justin Abdelkader/Darren Helm to Las Vegas in the expansion draft The Wings have re-signed Tomas Tatar to a three-year, $13.5 million deal ($4.5 million AAV), Xavier Ouellet to a two-year, $2.5 million deal ($1.25 million AAV), and Andreas Athanasiou to a two-year, $5 million deal ($2.5 million AAV) The Wings have parted ways with Robbie Russo, Drew Miller, Ben...

Gameday Updates: Ottawa Senators at Detroit Red Wings: Line Combinations, Key Matchups

In case you missed it, the Red Wings called up 2015 first round pick Evgeny Svechnikov for tonight’s game as an emergency replacement for Drew Miller who is out with the flu. According to Ansar Khan, Svechnikov will skate on a line with Justin Abdelkader and Dylan Larkin. Also according to Khan, Andreas Athanasiou skated with Ben Street and Tomas Nosek in practice this morning but said he might switch with Riley Sheahan for the game (I made the switch already because frankly I would prefer to see Athanasiou skate on a line with Frans Nielsen and Darren Helm). As for Ottawa, fellow 2015...

Gameday Updates: Detroit Red Wings at Tampa Bay Lightning: Line Combinations, Key Matchups

Andreas Athanasiou split time with Ben Street during the line rushes this morning but is still considered a game time decision. If it is anything beyond just some soreness my guess is the Red Wings will err on the side of caution and hold him out another game. There is no reason to risk further injury to a key player to the future of the team in a meaningless game at the end of a lost season.

Gameday Updates: Detroit Red Wings at Carolina Hurricanes: Line Combinations, Key Matchups

No practice today. Luke Glendening out with an injury, we’re assuming that Tomas Nosek will come back into the lineup for him. Petr Mrazek made the start last night, so it’s safe to say that Jimmy Howard gets the nod tonight. Dan Renouf reassigned to Grand Rapids, so all signs point to Niklas Kronwall returning to the lineup tonight.
