    I know this is nearly impossible to do but I'd like to give it a shot for fun. I'm going to assume the team stays mostly the same this upcoming season, which means Detroit will have another top-5 (or top-10 at least) pick next summer. I'm not going to bother with cap hits or guessing line combos correctly, I'm just going to assume Yzerman can get his guys signed. These are guys that are already signed or will very likely be signed as RFAs.

    Here's what I think we can expect going into the 2020-21 season (bolded = under contract, italics = RFAs, Seider will be under contract):

    Bertuzzi-Larkin-Mantha
    Zadina-Veleno-Athanasiou
    Rasmussen-Nielsen-Hirose
    Helm-Glendening-Abdelkader

    Extras/callups: Berggren, Smith, Svechnikov, Ehn, De La Rose

    Cholowski-Hronek
    DeKeyser
    -Seider
    McIsaac
    -Bowey

    Extras/callups: Kaski, Lindstrom, Hicketts, Saarijarvi, Tuomisto

    Bernier
    Larsson


    Assuming the cap goes up to $84,000,000, the above roster would leave the Wings with something like $10-20 million in cap space depending mostly on what the big RFAs (Bertuzzi/Mantha/AA) sign for.
    Another possibility to take into account is they might have a top-3 pick next summer that's capable of jumping into the lineup right away.

    For all the complaining about the bad contracts, they're actually going to be in a good position next summer.

    Long story short, the Wings are going to have a decent team with another top-5-ish pick waiting in the wings and $10-20 million in cap space at this time next year. Pretty exciting.

    Some notable UFAs (age):

    - Backstrom (32)
    - Hall (28)
    - Granlund (28)
    - Kreider (29)
    - Hoffman (30)

    - Pietrangelo (30)
    - Barrie (28)
    - Krug (29)
    - Faulk (28)
    - Josi (30)
    - Hamonic (29)
    - Bouwmeester (36)

    - Holtby (30)

    Thoughts?

    I don't think a kid producing 6 points in the top German league will come in as a 20 year old and start on the 2nd defensive pairing. I think we've got more than a couple years of developing before we see Seider in a winged wheel.

    I also think Kaski has a chance to play on the team this year.

    Depending on who we sign/resign in the mean-time I think Wings should make a run at/for Taylor Hall if Devils don't resign him. I mean they did just draft Hughes and trade for Subban so there might be incentive to get a deal done with Hall.

    - Just my thoughts.

    I want to throw up every time I see that 4th line. I’m really hoping someone can step up and make some sort of big step (Berggren, Svechnikov, Smith, Ehn, etc.).

    I’m happy too see that we will have some future depth moving forward on the Defensive side of things. Defensemen are like pitchers in baseball, you need a lot of them because they there is a good chance that more than half won’t be NHL players.

    maybe slightly joking but only slightly

    we'll see what happens I guess

    a lot of the stuff as far as line combos go is somewhat predicated on Blashill extending though(by the way I think Blashill will extend)

    Seider, IMO, will DEFINITELY be ready in 20-21. Some people think he’s ready this year.

    If that is the roster for 20-21, then the wings will be the worst team in the league, bar, none and won’t have made any progress compared to this year.

    Too much Abdelkader and Veleno and not enough Svechnikov on these rosters IMO

    If Abby gets playing time over Svech, I'm done watching this team until Abby retires. Dead serious.

    I'll bet money that Seider makes the team before Kaski. My opinion is based on physical readiness as well as defensive abilities. Kaski will get abused in the NHL, he needs to add some bulk, otherwise he's Hicketts with offensive upside. (You know, like Helm with hands.)

    Idk why you think that when he played in a better league and did very well compared to Seider.

    Kaski isn't small... 6'3, 190ish. Same size as Danny DeKeyser. An Liiga is known for being pretty similar to the NHL/KHL compared to the rest of the Euro leagues.

    I just find it rather funny no one. NOT ONE PERSON here in this forum suggested him over Broberg or Soderstrom....

    An now he's ready to play, next year, for sure 2020. Great. I'll be really happy, just wonder where were all your voices before the Red Wings media machine pimped this kid after his selection? Or were you all ready to support any pick/player?

    Side note: I'll take your friendly bet. Msg me what you're willing to wager, Drinks are cool with me.

    Well, that's an opinion. We'll see, I hope so, I can't see how he's ready. Rasmus Dahlin's don't walk around every day where they jump right into the league. An on top of adjusting to playing against better competition in the States the rinks also different and life-style. ( I'm also not mad about it. Just think he'll be a 3/4 year project)

    If Detroit's top pairing features Cholowski as the top pairing, prepare to set the record for most goals against in NHL history.

    I don't think Seider has the upside potential that Broberg or Soderstrom have. I also think he has a higher floor though, I expect him to spend some time in the league, worst case 3rd pair.

    Kaski is hit or miss, he might not even make the league. Was much higher on him until WC.

    There's a potential one of them gets playing time next year when Green gets traded, and a roster spot in 2020 only if Stevie can't pick up a plug on a short term contract to replace Green. I watched Green break into the league at 19, not because he was ready but because the defense was a complete dumpster fire. When the defense is as bad as ours, and contracts expire some GMs will throw in kids that aren't quite ready instead of signing aging vets to short term contracts. It all depends on how Stevie wants to handle it obviously...

    Been a big believer in Joe Veleno for awhile. Excited to see what him and Zadina do next year. I would love for him to be our 2C to kick off 2020, unless we are lucky enough to draft someone like Byfield next summer (would die).

    I like Glendy, he is a good 4th line shutdown c. But the other three mainly Neilsen and Abby can't clear our cap fast enough.
