The Detroit Red Wings have certain characteristics they lack as well as positions at which they hope to upgrade.
There has been plenty of speculation as to how Detroit will fill those needs, and who that will be.
A right-handed defenseman has been made a priority, while a little extra scoring up front is always a welcomed addition.
The free-agent wire can provide just what the team needs, but Detroit is not the only one in the market for specific talents. Plenty of teams will be inquiring for similar impact players, so it is imperative that Detroit’s front office evaluates and pursues the right individuals.
Trading is always an option, and it may be the better option to fill the Red Wings’ requirements. If free agency is the route they choose, then they should beware of names that may not provide what they’re looking for.
These are a few free agents Detroit would be well-advised to avoid come July 1.
