Quick Hits: The Remaining Free Agents Edition

Walter Tychnowicz-USA TODAY Sports Red Wings’ third pick Theodor Niederbach thrills with puck skills - mlive.com Lucas Raymond and Theodor Niederbach are playing on separate levels for Frolunda, which has a strong reputation in the Swedish hockey ranks for developing NHL talent. If all goes according to plan, they will be teammates on the Detroit Red Wings in the near future. I think that Niederbach is going to be prove to be a better pick than his draft selection in a few years. I like the video I’ve seen of him post-draft. Value of 2020 NHL Free Agents still on the market:...

Check date of buyout announcement: Oct 6. A little strange that it took this long, considering the tweets thanking Jonathan Ericsson and Trevor Daley were posted the day after it was announced the team wasn’t bringing them back.

I like them. We’re just going to ignore the whole part about learning about the players in 2002 and go right to imagining another Dominik Hasek wearing the winged...

Photo by: Godong/Universal Images Group via In Red Wings Land Something new for this one today. We got an email from reader Greg who wanted to open discussion on a couple points so I figured we’d give that a go today. Is there anything to be made of Mantha not filing for arbitration? It seems Yzerman has said publicly he is confident they will get a deal done. But what is the motivation for not filing for arbitration versus Bertuzzi and many others in the NHL filing for it? As a player optimist, I think the thing to read into Mantha letting the arbitration deadline pass without...
