No Redden for the Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings continue to look for help with defense, but the team will not pursue Wade Redden, reports the Detroit Free Press.

The Wings are looking to add depth to their blueline after losing Nicklas Lidstrom and Brad Stuart in the off-season.

Lidstrom retired, whereas Stuart went to San Jose.

After Redden cleared waivers and was bought out by the New York Rangers yesterday, there were internal discussions about whether Redden could be the answer in Detroit. The Red Wings have been on the hunt for a defenseman to add to their roster.

Ultimately, however, management chose not to go with Redden, who has not played in the NHL since the 2009-2010 season.

According to the Free Press, Toronto Maple Leafs rearguard Cody Franson could be another option.

Franson, 25, was obtained in a trade from Nashville in July 2011. He has 71 points in 198 games with the Predators and the Leafs. He will become a restricted free agent this summer after signing a one-year deal worth $1.2 million with Toronto.
