The Detroit Red Wings continue to look for an upgrade on defense. This would qualify:
Boston and Detroit the frontrunners for Buffalo's Ehrhoff, per @maydayhockey
— Hockey Central (@SNHockeyCentral) March 5, 2014
Ehrhoff currently has six goals and 29 points for the Sabres, numbers that would appeal to a Wings front office hoping to add a little pop on the blue line.
Better yet, he’s signed through approximately the end of time, which fits Ken Holland’s criteria for not adding a rental player. (Ehrhoff’s contract actually runs through 2020-21, with a cap hit of $4 million each year.)
No word on what Detroit would have to give up to make this happen.
