Quick Hits: The Refreshing the Roster Edition
In Red Wings Land
EVERYTHING IS AWFUL FOR THE RED WINGS RIGHT NOW BUT THIS IS EXACTLY HOW IT NEEDS TO BE | The Hockey News
But the necessity of a poor campaign goes beyond the ability to land a high draft pick. It also gives Yzerman the opportunity to start the process of separating the wheat from the chaff and begin the process of refreshing a veteran roster, something the Red Wings have long needed to do.
Steve Yzerman refreshed the roster a bit last night by acquiring Brendan Perlini.

Perlini's looking for a change of scenery and Detroit may be able to offer him minutes depending on injuries to Abdelkader/Erne and how they want to manage Svechnikov/Smith, two guys they weren't really giving a lot of minutes to over the last couple of games— Prashanth Iyer (@iyer_prashanth) October 28, 2019
However, this is a smaller critique in the grand scheme of things because I’m not certain that even the max return for a player of Regula’s caliber would’ve yielded a player that moves the needle for the organization— Prashanth Iyer (@iyer_prashanth) October 28, 2019
