With training camp right around the corner, the Detroit Red Wings are on the cusp of filling out the roster.
With Danny DeKeyser and Daniel Alfredsson the only question marks remaining, Detroit is nearing its annual trip to Centre Ice Arena in Traverse City, Michigan, in September.
DeKeyser is expected to re-sign before camp, per MLive.com’s Brendan Savage, solidifying Detroit’s blue line with all seven defensemen returning for the 2014-15 season.
Alfredsson’s future remains clouded as Detroit’s shrinking cap space and crowded group of forwards make it difficult to include the 41-year-old veteran.
With players returning from injury and the growth of budding young stars, Detroit’s glut of talent up front is a good problem to have.
Included is a projection of Detroit’s forward lineup for the 2014-15 season based on last season’s line combinations, the nearly identical returning lineup and some conjectures determined by yours truly.
These are the biggest questions surrounding each of Detroit’s four lines for the 2014-15 season.
