The move comes on the heels of the Red Wings losing Martin Frk to the Carolina Hurricanes via waivers.
I get that this move likely means that either Andreas Athanasiou or Anthony Mantha have made the Wings’ opening night roster, as there’s no spot for them without cutting someone loose, but I really hate this. This is a direct result of unnecessary signings (or re-signings) last summer. The Wings are going to lose Pulkkinen for nothing because they couldn’t resist bringing back Helm and Miller and bringing in Ott and Vanek.
