Photo by John Russell/NHLI via How to score the Swedish defenseman from Toronto. The Kevin Fiala trade was the spark that started the fire. After the Minnesota Wild traded the RFA rights to Kevin Fiala to the Los Angeles Kings, the trade market became all the more perplexing. What’s to be done if a player like Matthew Tkachuk wants out? How does a salary cap-strapped team like the Vegas Golden Knights manage their roster? What can be done to poach young, high-potential players from teams with poor salary structures? Enter two teams at vastly different sides of the...

It’s kind of nerve wracking. People are scared when he walks in. But I think that’s how a GM should be. “He has very high expectations for everybody. You can sense that he’s a successful GM. How he talks to you about his plans. He was very straight with me. He was very up front with me. “You can see that...

Red Wings have pieces to trade up if Wright is available at second overall

Photo by Mike Stobe/NHLI via It’s speculation season. It’s always a fun day when resident TSN draft expert Bob McKenzie puts out his draft rankings. They’re usually close to the industry consensus on players, which means that what you see may very well be what you get when draft day rolls around. There were a few things that caught the eye of fans, but the most important being the order of the top two players, with Slovak prospect Juraj Slafkovsky coming in first overall and Shane Wright ending up second. .@TSNBobMcKenzie Final 2022 Draft Rankings!MORE:...

Do the Red Wings have a new head coach yet? No #RedWings Wrap-Up: Hronek stays consistent in fourth NHL season; finished with career highs in assists, points and games played in 2021-22. : https://t.co/AWfsc3NDQo pic.twitter.com/WMQYXsZBow— Detroit Red Wings (@DetroitRedWings) June 28, 2022 I mean “consistent” is definitely a word to describe Hronek’s season-over-season play but also not a good word to describe his game-to-game play. That’s always going to be the frustrating thing about Hronek. He will have games where he looks like a solid top four guy who...

Yes, it’s that time of the year again, folks. The 2022 NHL Draft is just around the corner. This time around, the Detroit Red Wings pick eighth overall.

Could the Red Wings net Nic Hague?

Photo by Jonathan Kozub/NHLI via The Knights need cap help. The Wings need defense. The Detroit Red Wings are no stranger to problem-solving. During the 2020-21 season, they played suitor to two team’s cap woes: the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Washington Capitals. For the former, they retained 50% of David Savard’s cap space in exchange for a fourth round pick. From the latter, they took on Richard Panik for a second round pick (or a first, depending on how much the Caps valued the space). At the time, Detroit was nowhere close to contention. They were well out of...
