Sportsnet’s Friedman talks Wings trades with Edmonton’s 630 CHED

Via CBS Detroit’s Will Burtchfield, FanRag Sports’ Chris Nichols reports that Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman discussed several Red Wings-related trade rumors during an interview on Edmonton’s 630 CHED:


“Mike Green, he’ll be out there,” indicated NHL Insider Elliotte Friedman during a Friday afternoon appearance on Edmonton’s 630 CHED. “I think there’s going to be some interest in Mike Green. He’s already been linked to Washington. I know they were asking about him at the All-Star game last week, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Tampa takes a look… I wouldn’t be surprised if Tampa was one of the teams in there considering a look at Mike Green.”

“They’ve tried to move Tatar and Nyquist for a couple of years now. They’ve been on and off the market, and I do think they’re looking at that again.

“I’ve reported at one point this year it looked like Edmonton and Detroit were seriously talking about a Mrazek deal that didn’t happen. And I still think they’d move one of their goaltenders if the price is right. Mrazek has started to play a little better.

“I think Detroit, as you mentioned, being in the position that they’re in, they’re willing to consider a lot of things. I do think that a few of their players are guys who could be available.”
