"Tatar, 23, had been a restricted free agent, and there never was any doubt he’d be re-upped. It was just a matter of the details, which break down as $2.75 million per year." Tatar doesn't have a NTC though. You look at this and wonder how much the Wings will have to pay Nyquist next year.
"The only RFA left to be re-signed is defenseman Danny DeKeyser. That one could be trickier - DeKeyser’s camp knows how highly the Wings deem DeKeyser, and defensemen increasingly make premium dollars these days. At 24, DeKeyser doesn’t have a lot of games under his belt (76) but he may well consider that since he’s part of the top-four mix, he should get money similar to the $4.25 million Kyle Quincey will make annually after re-signing with Detroit on July 1." If Dekeyser gets that much, that only leaves the Wings with about 1 mil in cap space. Don't see how they will sign Alfie, or any other UFA for that matter.
