No blockbuster moves have been made by the Red Wings this summer, though the team still needs to bolster its blueline before the start of the season, the Detroit Free Press reports.
While defensemen Niklas Kronwall, Kyle Quincey, Ian White, Jonathan Ericsson, Jakub Kindl and Brendan Smith will all be present at the start of training camp, the Wings are still looking to fill the holes left by the retirement of captain Nicklas Lidstrom and the loss of Brad Stuart to the San Jose Sharks.
Red Wings GM Ken Holland could take a gamble on a free agent, though the pool of remaining blueliners is quite scarce.
Michal Rozsival, Brett Clark and Carlo Colaiacovo are potential options to add to the Wings' blueline, but they somewhat struggled last season with their respective clubs.
Holland could also choose to make a trade to acquire the boost he needs on the back end if none of the remaining free agents are worth the risk.
It's believed Calgary's Jay Bouwmeester, Phoenix's Keith Yandle, Columbus' Fedor Tyutin, Ottawa's Sergei Gonchar and Toronto's Cody Franson are all still on the market.
