The Detroit Red Wings Offseason Gameplan | The Hockey Writers
While I do agree with some of the moves mentioned in the article, I have some objections as well. The Wings will re-sign Kyle Quincey, whether you like it or not. The Wings will also re-sign either Bertuzzi or Cleary, because that's what Holland does, and will probably try and re-sign Gustavsson. Playing Petr Mrazek 25ish games next season would not be as beneficial for him in the long-run as playing in the AHL would be.
