NHL Trade Rumors, Detroit Red Wings: 3 Candidates for the Preseason Trade Block

The Detroit Red Wings have been very quiet as far as trading players away over the past few seasons.

During the offseason, Detroit has usually rebuilt through free agency, rather than through trades.

After watching Ville Leino do nothing in Detroit, and then leave and go on to greatness in Philadelphia (and now Buffalo), I can't blame the Red Wings for being reluctant to trade players.

Additionally, Detroit has never had a lot of cap space at the trade deadline to take on extra salary.

But this season is different due to the copious amount of cap space ($5.8 million per CapGeek.com). This would allow Wings GM Ken Holland to go out and get a higher-paid player at some time during the year to help Detroit later in the season.

Who Ken Holland may try to acquire is up for debate, but there is a strong sentiment among Red Wings fans about who needs to be traded this season.

This slideshow will go over the top three candidates that I see Detroit parting ways with this year at some point.
