    If there’s a player that we feel can make a very significant impact, we’re not afraid to do that in free agency,” he said. “Some of the things we weigh are, how much does that player help us today, tomorrow and three, four years down the road? What’s the cost of acquiring that player? And does the cost of acquiring that player make sense for where we hope to be in three or four years? Or are we just spending a whole lot of money and not going to be much different in three or four years, whether that player is here or helps get us there, and is there a more efficient way to get there at the end of the day?

    “So we weigh it all out, and that’s for short-term contracts and long-term contracts.”

    The free agency period officially begins on July 13.

    Nation, are there any specific players you would like to see the Red Wings go after in free agency?
