The Red Wings prospect system is continually one of the strongest in the league with many players ready to take the next step to the NHL. Well stocked in all areas, the Wings will need to rely on cheaper options coming out of the minor league system this year due to cap restraints and there are several players that are ready to answer the call. The acquisitions from this year's draft were defensively heavy and should help to replace the D men graduating on for the 2016-17 campaign. With such a strong prospect pool the Wings and Griffins should be poised for success this season and into the future.
