FIVE-YEAR FORECAST: YOUR 2023-24 DETROIT RED WINGS | The Hockey News

By the time 2023-24 rolls around, the Red Wings will have a very nice set of forwards, led by captain Larkin. Naturally, Detroit fans have to hope that player such as Svechnikov, Veleno and Zadina develop on an upward trajectory, but that’s a big part of this forecasting exercise, isn’t it?

Here’s the projected forward lineup:

Evgeny SvechnikovJoe VelenoFilip Zadina

Tyler BertuzziMichael Rasmussen — Albin Grewe

Givani SmithChristoffer EhnAdam Erne

The rules of the article state that future draft picks, trades and the expansion draft weren’t factored in. That means this lineup is far from exact. How would you feel if this is the forward group that the Wings ice in five years?
