With the exception of Kevin Shattenkirk, this year’s free agency pool is pretty weak for defensemen.

Seems poetic that the Detroit Red Wings are ending a 25 season playoff streak in 25th place. This will also be the first time Captain Henrik Zetterberg will miss the playoffs. However, finishing near the bottom of the standings does come with a perk. The chance to pick higher up in the draft is not something…
