Wings next season
If hasek retires will they become the avs? (plenty of scoring) but no goaltender to keep em in the game.
With almost $32M already committed for next season, the Wings cannot afford to keep Lang if they plan on signing Bertuzzi. While the power forward won't make the same $5.2 million he received this past season, Bertuzzi will still pick up a base salary around the $3 million mark. The Wings want to keep Hasek and if he decides to play another season, he'll re-sign with Detroit. Chelios has already made it clear that he wants to play another year and he'll likely ink a new one-year deal shortly. As for Schneider and Markov... the team would love to keep both, but if they have to choose, they may stick with Schneider.
