Kevin’s Morning Hash: Detroit UFA salary projections, Jack Eichel rumor and love for Bergeron



The Red Wings are expected to re-sign Luke Glendening
Luke Glendening could get a slight raise from his $1.8 million salary if he stays with the Red Wings.

Some Detroit Hockey Now readers believe that paying Luke Glendening $1 to stay with the Red Wings is too much. Fans are divided about whether GM Steve Yzerman should re-sign him.

Glendening, 32, is coming off a contract with a $1.8 million cap hit. An agent, not Glendening’s agent, said he believes Glendening’s next deal will pay him “close to what he is currently making – maybe a little less. My guess will be that he gets close to what he is currently making – maybe a little more.  If the Red Wings  re-sign him, my projection his salary cap hit of $2 million.

Here are projections for what the salary cap hit would be for other players the Red Wings might re-sign:

Goalie Jonathan Bernier: $3.5 million on a two-year deal.

Right wing Bobby Ryan: $1.175 million on a one-year deal

Center Sam Gagner: $900,000

Defenseman Marc Staal: $2.3 million.
