The 2019-20 season is one the Detroit Red Wings and their fans would rather put as far behind them as possible after the finished with the fewest points in the entire NHL, by a healthy margin.
The bad news is the Red Wings were really bad last season. The good news is that there is only one way to go from here and that is up.
The 2020-21 Red Wings roster, thanks to some moves by GM Steve Yzerman, is going to look a bit different than it did this past season, though some things will remain the same.
On Tuesday, Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News released a piece in which he projects what the Red Wings line combinations will look like next season.
Take a look.
Tyler Bertuzzi – Dylan Larkin – Anthony Mantha
Vladislav Namestnikov – Robby Fabbri – Filip Zadina
Sam Gagner – Valtteri Filppula – Bobby Ryan
Darren Helm – Luke Glendening – Frans Nielsen
Danny DeKeyser – Filip Hronek
Marc Staal – Troy Stecher
Patrik Nemeth – Jon Merrill
As you can see above, here are quite a few new faces on the Red Wings roster which means some of the line combinations will look much different than they did this past season.
Nation, do you agree with these projections? If not, what changes would you make?
