5 Free Agents Detroit Red Wings Have a Realistic Chance to Sign

NHL free agency is less than month away, and the Detroit Red Wings are in the market for a little bit of everything.

Of Detroit’s seven unrestricted free agents, Helene St. James of USA Today suggests Todd Bertuzzi, Daniel Cleary, David Legwand, Mikael Samuelsson, Kyle Quincey and Jonas Gustavsson are unlikely to return next season.

That leaves Detroit in the market for at least one player at each position, with a particularly shallow pool of talent that can provide immediate impact.

The league’s worst-kept secret is Detroit’s need for an impact right-handed defenseman. Up front, it may make a push for a top-six forward, but that’s not a dire need with the emergence of young talent within its farm system.

Looking up and down the list of free-agent players on the market, there are a few that fit the Red Wings' wants and could be had for a decent price.

With July 1 on the horizon, these are five free agents with a realistic chance of signing on Detroit’s dotted line.
