We are still a month and a half away from the 2020 NHL trade deadline, but there has already been plenty of speculation as to which players could end up moving from their current teams by Feb. 24.

According to a piece by Craig Custance of The Athletic, a pair of Detroit Red Wings could potentially be traded before the deadline.

Those players are Andreas Athanasiou and Mike Green.

From The Athletic:

Andreas Athanasiou, Detroit Red Wings – The Red Wings currently have seven restricted free agent forwards at the NHL level who are going to need new deals, including Athanasiou. Two of them – Anthony Mantha and Tyler Bertuzzi – are in for huge raises. Detroit is going to have to make a decision on Athanasiou, and he won’t be cheap either. Detroit’s rental options aren’t going to net a huge return, so if Steve Yzerman wants to add, say, a first-round pick, he may have to move one of his young forwards. And Athanasiou is an option. “ I don’t think he’s Steve’s cup of tea,” said an NHL source.

Mike Green, Detroit Red Wings – He hasn’t been great in Detroit but that goes for a lot of players. For a team looking for power play help on the cheap, Green might be a decent option. Said one executive of Green: “If the puck gets on his stick, he can still at least look up and find the good forward.”
