    Dear Red Wings: Suter joins core; Detroit remains way under cap

    Red Wings add talented Swiss forward Chicago has found themselves up against the cap yet again. But one might imagine if they are, in fact, rebuilding then they would not trade for a 31-year-old Tyler Johnson at $5 million a year for the next three seasons. Or add Marc-André Fleury’s $7 million contract through a trade (he might get traded again, we’ll see), then trade for and sign defenseman Seth Jones to a contract that will pay him $9.5 million until 2030 -- yes, 2030 when he is in his mid 30s.

    Tampa Bay Lightning trade Mitchell Stephens to Detroit Red Wings for pick

    The Tampa Bay Lightning have traded center Mitchell Stephens to the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for a 2022 sixth round pick. Stephens was originally drafted 33rd overall in the 2nd round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. His pick was acquired when the Lightning traded down from the 28th overall pick in the 1st round with the New York Islanders.

    Predicting the 2021-22 Detroit Red Wings Depth Chart

    After the first two days of free agency, Yzerman has made some key moves that are showing the transformation of this team. The most notable signing up front was Pius Suter (2 x 3.25M AAV) as he will push to be the full-time second-line center. Suter’s rookie season with the Chicago Blackhawks resulted in 27 points in 55 games and while he will transition from playing significant minutes with Patrick Kane and Alex Debrincat, there will be plenty of opportunity for him to flourish in this top six.
