The Detroit Red Wings are just over two weeks from kicking off training camp for the 2013-14 season, but there is already a sizable amount of speculation about the position battles.
This speculation stems from the fact that there are 25 players that the Red Wings currently have signed to NHL contracts (per CapGeek.com). The Red Wings can only have 23 players on their NHL roster which must be finalized two days before the season starts on October 2.
Not only are the Red Wings over the player limit on their roster, but CapGeek also has the Red Wings currently over the NHL salary cap by over $637,000.
This means that players must be waived, traded, sent down or start the season on injured reserve.
Here are six story lines to watch in the Red Wings' 2013 training camp.
