Khans thoughts on the wings off season

mailbag) Khan doesnt think the Red Wings would be willing to give up the amount of assets to get a defenseman like Dougie Hamilton (Khan doesnt think hell be traded) or Jacob Trouba. Every team would ask the Wings for Dylan Larkin, and they arent moving him.

They need to give their blueline a different look next season. Doubt that Kyle Quincey will be back. They could look to trade Brendan Smith. Xavier Ouellet and Ryan Sproul require waivers next year, so theyll need a roster spot for them or theyll have to trade them.

Could the Red Wings be able to trade for Kevin Shattenkirk without giving up Larkin? Hes the type of player the Red Wings need. Would probably include at least Gustav Nyquist or Tomas Tatar.

Upfront, Andrew Ladd and Troy Brouwer are likely at the top of their free agent wishlist, with Jamie McGinn Plan B or Plan C.

The Ducks have extra defensemen and could be looking to make a move, with Sami Vatanen the most likely to be dealt.

I like the Kings, they're my second favorite team since I started watching more around the league hockey around 8-10 years ago (I know, small sample size but whatever, I like their style of play).. And I'm more surprised it took so long than I am that they did it. Hopefully they at least had a civil conversation with the guy but he has been getting worse and worse each year it seems.

Kopitar will probably get it after that big contract, but Doughty would be good too.

He definitely sounds worth losing the third round pick. Excited to see this guy develop.

And that article that krsmith shared only makes him sound better. Here's to hoping Kenny found a future gem.
