"DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings averaged only 2.55 goals per game in 2015-16, their lowest output in a full season since 1976-77. Then they lost their most creative talent, Pavel Datsyuk. Scoring is a huge concern. Solutions include getting more production from Gustav Nyquist and Tomas Tatar, who combined for 16 fewer goals than the previous season. Younger players like Dylan Larkin (team-leading 23 goals), Andreas Athanasiou and Anthony Mantha can contribute more. Making a trade for a puck-moving defenseman (Cam Fowler, Kevin Shattenkirk and Jacob Trouba are possibilities) can boost their offense, but would come at a high cost. Another answer is acquiring one of the top-six forwards set to hit the market when free agency begins at noon Friday. The Red Wings' main target, Steven Stamkos, re-signed with the Tampa Bay Lightning Wednesday but there are other options, albeit support players and not stars. A center to fill the void left by Datsyuk would be preferable. Frans", www.mlive.com

The franchise is coming off a heartening year in which it made it to the second round of the playoffs for the first time since 1993, losing to the Lightning in five games. It reinvigorated the fan base, brought the Islanders back into the conversation as a team players might actually want to play for — and immediately, they’re going through a significant roster overhaul. As free agency is set to open at noon Friday, Snow knows there are major needs to address", nypost.com
