Wednesday Night Hockey: Who will Red Wings, Wild sell before deadline? | NBC Sports
I’m not really expecting any of the pending UFAs to actually get moved, so anything Steve Yzerman and the Red Wings can acquire for the likes of Trevor Daley, Jonathan Ericsson, Mike Green and/or Jimmy Howard would likely be satisfying to me.
