It’s now or never to move players before the expansion draft
Reminder: Saturday, June 17 at 3 p.m. is when the waiver/trade/signing freeze goes into effect. No one but Vegas can add any player to their team, sign an extension, place a player on waivers, or make a trade with anyone but Vegas. This freeze runs until 8 a.m. on Thursday morning.
What about the Red Wings? Well, As reported by TSN’s Darren Dreger, don’t expect the Red Wings to be active today. They know they will lose a player, but will reassess Sunday when lists are out.
It will be interesting to know who’s that player and why Ken Holland is not moving any players to acquire assets instead of losing him for nothing at all by Wednesday.
