On Friday night, the Detroit Red Wings looked to get back in the win column following Tuesday’s 6-2 butt-whooping at the hands of the Washington Capitals.
Trailing the Ottawa Senators 2-1 in the second period, Red Wings rookie Michael Rasmussen decided it would be a good idea to go toe-to-toe with Senators defenseman, Ben Harpur.
Well, as you are about to see, that was not the best choice Rasmussen made today.

3 Free agents the Detroit Lions should consider to replace Golden Tate in 2019
On October 30th, news broke that the Detroit Lions had traded Golden Tate to the Philadelphia Eagles for a 3rd Round draft pick.
Following the announcement, many fans (and media) quickly hopped on social media to rip Bob Quinn and the Lions organization. Most of those people seemed to believe that trading Tate meant the team was waiving the white flag on the season.
I was absolutely not one of those people. In fact, I praised Quinn (which I rarely do) for making the move and for getting a bigger return than many imagined he could get. My rationale for this was that Tate, who was in the final year of his contract, would demand too much money to stick around in Detroit. Even when Tate was here, this Lions team was never going to compete for a Super Bowl, so it was better to unload him when Quinn did rather than lose him for nothing at the end of the season.
That being said, not having Tate around has left a big hole in the Lions offense and replacing him (for less money) before the 2019 season is crucial.
So, here is a list of three potential free agent receivers who the Lions could get for a reasonable price during the coming offseason.
