In Red Wings Land

There really isn’t much going on, so here are a few random Red Wings-related articles from yesterday.

Detroit Red Wings

The good: The Wings kicked off the offseason by snagging Filip Zadina with the sixth pick in the NHL Draft. The Wings were pretty lucky that Zadina fell to them in that spot, as he’s arguably the second-best goal scorer of this year’s class. Detroit also re-upped Mike Green and Anthony Mantha. In free agency, they reunited with veteran winger Thomas Vanek on a very palatable one-year, $3 million deal.

The bad: The direction of this team is still a bit confusing. They seem a bit stuck in the middle between rebuilding and trying to compete now, and that’s not a great place to be. They also committed three years and $9 million to Jonathan Bernier in net, which I’m not sure makes Detroit fans feel any better or more secure about their goaltending situation.

Grade: C+

What grade do you give Ken Holland and the Wings so far?
