I would assume that the fantasy numbers should remain about the same with some new faces taking a big jump, like Leino and Jimmy Howard, who is pegged to be Chris Osgood's back-up.
|Pavel Datsyuk||Nicklas Lidstrom||Chris Osgood|
|Henrik Zetterberg||Brian Rafalski||Jimmy Howard|
|Johan Franzen||Niklas Kronwall|
|Dan Cleary||Brett Lebda|
|Valtteri Filppula||Brad Stuart|
|Tomas Holmstrom||Andreas Lilja|
|Kris Draper||Derek Meech|
The Wings made the decision to give long-term deals with salary cap beneifts to their superstars, but when they have a large number of superstars, they handcuffed themselves a little bit when it comes to their depth. Right now, the Red Wings are now sitting with 19 players signed on for next season at a cap rate of $53.4 million, which doesn't leave them with much room for the remaining four players they need for a full roster. Look for players like Jeremy Williams, Cory Emmerton and Jan Mursak to make an impact or enough of a ruckus to earn a spot on the forward lines.
