In Red Wings Land

Detroit Red Wings 2020-21 opening lineup: Our predictions
Training camps, for now, are slated to start in mid-November; the Wings will hold theirs at Little Caesars Arena, but plan to return to Traverse City in 2021. It will be an interesting time, as there are multiple openings — some of which general manager Steve Yzerman will need to address via free agency or trades.

I’m only including this because there haven’t been Red Wings articles to include lately. Even by HSJ standards, this is pretty bad.

Around the NHL

This deal makes no sense for Minnesota.

Edmundson agrees to four-year contract with Canadiens
Joel Edmundson agreed to terms on a four-year, $14 million contract with the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday. It has an average annual value of $3.5 million.

They also gave him a 10 team NTC. It’s nice to get to make fun of other teams for signing bad contracts.
