Could the Wings make a push for Dustin Byfuglien

The Wings do like Winnipeg’s Dustin Byfuglien, a right-handed shooting 6-foot-5, 250-pound behemoth, as a top-pair defenseman or top-six right winger, but they’d need to clear space for his $5.2 million salary — and to be certain he’d re-sign, as he’s a pending unrestricted free agent.

The trade market in general is going to be interesting to watch, because unless teams drop out of the race, there are going to be more seekers than sellers. Eric Staal has been a popular name in trade rumors, but that was before Carolina surged to within a point of the playoff picture.
