Are the Red Wings targeting a new starting goalie? Trade rumors hint at a potential shakeup in Detroit's crease.

The Detroit Red Wings are on the rise, but their goaltending situation remains a question mark. Ville Husso has been solid, but his contract expires after the 2024-25 season. Backup Alex Lyon, while dependable, isn’t seen as a long-term starting option.

With that uncertainty, NHL insiders are buzzing about GM Steve Yzerman’s potential plans. The trade market for goalies could get interesting this summer, and the savvy Yzerman may see an opportunity to upgrade Detroit’s most crucial position.

Detroit Red Wings Seeking New Number One in Net?

One hot rumor has Yzerman looking to offload Husso and pursue a big-name netminder. Names swirling around include Calgary’s Jacob Markstrom, the Boston Bruins’ Linus Ullmark, or even the Nashville Predators’ Juuse Saros. Each presents a different scenario with varying costs and implications.

Markstrom, a reliable veteran, would bring experience to the Red Wings but could be a pricey target. Ullmark’s is available, but the Red Wings could be on his no-trade clause list. Meanwhile, Saros offers immense upside, potentially solidifying the Wings’ goaltending for years to come, but the price would likely be steep.

It’s a complex puzzle for Yzerman, but one thing’s for sure – change is likely coming in goal for Detroit.
