Red Lines – Deadline Edition
With the trade deadline approaching (Monday at 3PM) here is the latest from the greatest team in sports.
- MLive’s Ansar Khan thinks the Red Wings are ready to add a depth forward, and narrows down the possible suspects.
- John Niyo of the Detroit News adds that a penalty killer is needed in Hockeytown, and profiles the Wings top defensive target next season.
- Bleacher Report looks at the Red Wings roster flexibility after the Quincey deal.
- The Freep has been running a daily collection of trade rumors here.
- The Vancouver Sun shares Kyle Quincey’s candid remarks for his old club. He’s since apologized. Avalanche are in town tonight.
My guess, which is as good as anyone’s, is the team will add another gritty forward if the price is right. Travis Moen or Paul Guastad would each cost a mid-round pick and add some toughness come April. If the right deal does not come, don’t be surprised to see the Wings stand pat. Chemistry is often underrated, and this team has earned 15 out of the last 18 possible points.
