    Red Wings Uncertain on Zetterberg's Future

    Henrik Zetterberg's status for next season remains up in the air.

    The Detroit Red Wings captain has long struggled with back injuries, dating back to the 2014 season when he missed the final 24 games of the regular season, plus three playoff contests, following back surgery.

    However, Zetterberg has not missed any time in the past three seasons. While the hope is that he can dress for the upcoming campaign, his status remains uncertain.

    "There's a real unknown right now with Henrik Zetterberg," Red Wings general manager Ken Holland told The Athletic's Craig Custance.

    There's no way he will. His contract is one of those recapture ones. He'll ride out a long-term injury, just like Hossa.

    Coyotes going to have some depth. Bottom 6 looking like:

    Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Hossa
    Horton - Bolland - Clarkson

    plus Pronger.

    It's about time! Holland has locked the team into some terrible deals. It will not stop the inevitable decline of the Red Wings despite having a great draft

    The waiting is over! The New York Rangers are the Stanley Cup Champions! And this one will last a lifetime!

    The salary cap difference between the Wings and the Rangers is Nash’s contact expired

    Both teams are a bunch of mediocre teams paid like difference makers.

    He's still owed $18 mill over the next three seasons. How does that work with his cap hit? On the personal side of this, sad to see him go due to injury. Great player for a long time.

    Just fine. He'll go on LTIR and ride this out still on the roster, just like Hossa is doing. Remember, a critical factor here is cap recapture, which he would hit the Wings with were he to formally retire before his deal expires.
