In Red Wings Land
How Red Wings goaltending is shaping up for future | MLive
Khan(!) busts out the Red Wings’ mailbag and hits on the team’s future between the pipes. The Wings likely aren’t going to be very good for another year or two or three, so I’m absolutely cool re-singing Jimmy Howard to a short deal with a lower cap hit and rolling with him and Jonathan Bernier until one of the kids is ready to take over as the next netminder of the future.

Pretty happy that the Wings aren’t on this list as a loser after acquiring a star player. They absolutely won the trade for Chris Chelios back in the day. Ditto the Brendan Shanahan deal.
