2. . Trade that might make sense only to me: something around Justin Faulk from Carolina to Detroit for Andreas Athanasiou.
It doesn’t make sense to me. Athanasiou’s ceiling is still high, and the Wings don’t appear to want to move him…yet, anyway.
Update: To make this work cap-wise, the Wings would have to send a defenseman to Carolina as well. Per CapFriendly, Faulk earns $4.83 million dollars per season through 20-21, while Athanasiou is a restricted free agent after this season, with a $1.387 million cap hit.
