Detroit Red Wings fans have have been extremely optimistic ever since news broke that Steve Yzerman was returning home to replace Ken Holland as general manager.

That being said, most of those fans understand that it will take time for Yzerman to turn around a team which finished with the fourth-worst record in the NHL during the 2018-2019 season.

In a piece recently published by Ansar Khan of MLive, he noted that he expects Yzerman to be “active” during the season, noting that we can expect some trades to take place, especially if the Red Wings are out of playoff contention.

Khan includes Jimmy Howard, Mike Green, Jonathan Ericsson, and Trevor Daley as veterans with expiring contracts who could find themselves on the trading block.

From MLive:

Yzerman will be active during the season.

The team has stockpiled young forwards, some of whom are proven NHL players (Dylan Larkin, Mantha, Athanasiou, Bertuzzi) and others still in the early stages of development (Evgeny Svechnikov, Michael Rasmussen, Filip Zadina, Joe Veleno, Taro Hirose). Yzerman might look to package one or two with other assets for a young defenseman.

Yzerman, like Holland before him, will at least move veterans on expiring contracts for draft picks at the trade deadline, assuming the team is out of playoff contention. The list includes Howard, Mike Green, Jonathan Ericsson and Trevor Daley.

Nation, which of these players do you think will get traded this coming season?
