USA Today deems the Wings a free agency ‘winner’

USA Today’s Jimmy Hascup and Mike Brehm issue free agency “Winners and Losers” this morning, and the Red Wings make the gents’ list in the “winning” category:

Detroit Red Wings: GM Steve Yzerman is sticking to the rebuild. He signed forward Bobby Ryan and defenseman Jon Merrill to one-year deals, and traded for defenseman Marc Staal, who has a year left on his deal. They can be dealt later for younger assets. Goalie Thomas Greiss is an upgrade in net, andĀ defenseman Troy Stecher signed for two years.

I have been blogging about the Red Wings since 2006, when MLive hired me to work their SlapShots blog, and I joined Kukla's Korner in 2011 as The Malik Report. I'm starting The Malik Report as a stand-alone site, hoping that having my readers fund the website is indeed the way to go to build a better community and create better content.
