My take on what Stevie should do

Team Explanation
Honestly, the trades, I didn’t really try on, I’ve just seen Dumoulin to DET and I feel it’s a good fit and we could resign him as a 2LD for next season if Albert Johansson isn’t ready for that role yet. Then the other deal was strictly to open up roster spots for our other guys and to dump off Fabbri’s cap hit of 4M for the next 3 years.

The Trocheck signing is definitely needed, as of now, we don’t have a true 2C since Suter didn’t show that he was capable of that job this season.

Casey DeSmith would also be a fantastic add in FA for a backup. We already have our starter/ 1A G in Ned, but we needed a solid backup which is where DeSmith comes in, he has never posted below a .912 Save % while averaging 24 games played every season. If he plays well enough, although unlikely, we could even have our 1A G of the future until Cossa comes in due to him only being a backup because of better goalies like Fleury, Murray (when he was good on PIT), and Jarry all holding him back from more games played. And worst comes worst, he’s getting paid 2.75M for the next 3 years, each of which we should have cap space to deal with that cap hit.


Extensions given towards the beginning of the season:

Larkin: 8yrs x 8.3ish (he’s the captain and our 1C)

Bertuzzi: 7yrs by 6.5ish (he is a top 6 winger that can score and brings grit)

If you disagree, lmk what I did wrong in the comments, but otherwise, have a nice day

Ras to 3rd line, Sunny to 4th. Smith over Stephens

If I'm being a little nit-picky I'd say I don't like Ras or Veleno on the 4th line. I hope they can perform better than that.
Being extremely nit-picky I'd say the cap floor is $576,944 higher than this team hits.

I think LD could use some improvement with Ed & Walman.
I hope Edvinsson can make the team and be a stud but he's young and has no nhl experience.

Other than that I do like this team on paper especially if Edv can be a solid 2D NHLer.
I hope Trocheck or another proven 2C has interest in signing in Detroit.

Thank you. I hope you have a nice day as well.

I like how the roster looks and you did good job with the Cap space as well. Fabbri is a tricky one. You could get much more value for him in the future, but he is always hurtfrown .
I don´t know if it would just be smarter to keep him and hope he stays healthy. Players like Fabbri has a lot of value at the trade deadline.

Nitpicking, but i would sign Hellberg rather than Aaron Dell. I´ve heard Hellberg is the nicest guy ever and he could be a good mentor for all the young Swedes.

Detroit declines the Seattle trade, not giving away players for free.

Pettersson is a much better choice from PIT.

Rather keep Fabbri. Trocheck probably gets more.
