Not a lot has changed in the Motor City since the last team update, but I thought I would refresh some memories with what the Red Wings will have to offer around training camp.
|Henrik Zetterberg||Pavel Datsyuk||Tomas Holmstrom|
|Mikael Samuelsson||Daniel Cleary||Johan Franzen|
|Jiri Hudler||Kris Draper||Kirk Maltby|
|Valtteri Filppula||Igor Grigorenko||Tomas Kopecky|
|Nicklas Lidstrom||Brian Rafalski|
|Niklas Kronvall||Brett Lebda|
|Chris Chelios||Andreas Lilja|
The Red Wings haven't made a signing in almost a month, but with this line-up, they don't really need to. In the crazy summer that was, the Red Wings only really shelled out cash to those who were already in the organization. I've done a bit more research into their salary numbers and found a few more figures and now the Wings 20-men line-up posted above is worth only $40.9 million (approx.). They have plenty of breathing space come deadline day and you know the Wings love to shop on deadline day, so when the puck drops... you'll know the Wings will not only be competitive, but they'll be cost efficient too.
