Tweet of note from Kulfan: Should the Wings buy out Nielsen?

The Red Wings have a 24-hour buyout window opening tomorrow thanks to their arbitration hearing with Tyler Bertuzzi, as the Detroit News’s Ted Kulfan noted via a Tweet…

One thing to remember after yesterday’s Bertuzzi arbitration: #RedWings have another 24 hour buyout window beginning Thursday. Only possibility would be Frans Nielsen. Would they?— Ted Kulfan (@tkulfan) October 28, 2020

Buying out Nielsen now would save, per CapFriendly, about $1.3 million in real-world dollars, but Detroit would have to pay Nielsen $2.67 million of his remaining $4 million in salary to buy him out.

  1. I think they should. Its not hurting us salary wise, but opportunity to put someone else in those games makes way more sense to me. Much rather have his role rotated by a few people vs him just sitting on the bench.
