Red Wings fans, watching a slog of a season, are allowed to dream.

They might spend some of Friday’s game against the Bruins wondering what Torey Krug would look like in red and white, how he might lift his hometown team out of the cellar. Both his No. 47 and the Detroit captaincy are open, too.

Just maybe . . . what if . . .

There’s a long way to go before July 1 and free agency, and there remains a chance that Krug won’t make it there. The impending free agent, who will be 29 in April, could sign a long-term deal and become a lifelong Bruin, securing his young family’s roots in this area.

However, the pull of home could be strong.

Krug and his wife, Melanie, are both Michiganders, having met as Michigan State students. Krug grew up cheering for the Wings and their captain, current general manager Steve Yzerman. Detroit coach Jeff Blashill tutored Krug in the USHL.

The franchise is looking for a bedrock defenseman, and Krug has 62 playoff games and two runs to the Stanley Cup Finals under his belt. He proved in last year’s trip to the Finals that he is a complete defenseman, in addition to being one of the best power-play quarterbacks in the league. He has earned himself a hefty raise from his $5.25 million cap hit, perhaps a ticket of $8 million a season.

Nation, would you like to see the Red Wings sign Torey Krug in the offseason?
