Detroit Red Wings mailbag: Ken Holland’s future, trades, NHL draft | Freep

Teams are only allowed four call-ups once past the trade deadline (until the end of the regular season) barring an emergency situation. I know they’d like to get a look at defenseman Filip Hronek because of how well he has played in Grand Rapids, where he’s running one of the power plays.

This answer was in response to a question about call-ups after the Red Wings are officially eliminated from the playoffs. I’d love to see Filip Hronek get some NHL games in before season ends. Joe Hicketts and Evgeny Svechnikov are other names mentioned as possible call-ups. Detroit absolutely needs to give a few of their prospects a look.

Steve Yzerman is probably going to acquire Erik Karlsson without giving up a single player on his current Tampa Bay Lightning roster.
