As the final four teams fight for their shot at the Stanley Cup, the Detroit Red Wings are already a month into its offseason. General Manager Steve Yzerman has a number of decisions to make, from the head coach he’ll hire to the restricted and unrestricted free agents he’ll re-sign.
Knowing Yzerman’s history the past three offseasons, a trade or two is likely. And of course, there’s free agency, which DHN’s Kevin Allen already put a ranking together for the top ten forwards.
