Detroit under pressure by GM

According to John Niyo of the Detroit News, he reports that Detroit Red Wings general manager has given his team the ultimatum as they will have to give him a reason to not become a seller by the February 26th trade deadline.

The Red Wings are currently 24th in the League with a record of 11-12-5. Holland has reportedly told the full team that their next 10 to 15 games will be critical in determining in which direction they will be going and who could be traded.

Niyo stated that some players such as Gustav Nyquist, Tomas Tatar, Mike Green, Trevor Daley and even their goaltender Jimmy Howard are currently on the trade block. In the Wings have been trying to rebuild for 2 seasons and this could be the perfect time for them to finally complete it. Although they are currently out of playoff contention, they are still close to a playoff spot with a lot of hard work.

How much longer they'll live with this charade? - That they're a playoff team, not a rebuilding one - is still more pertinent question for this organization, Niyo wrote in an article.

However, if the Red Wings' players can't accept their GM's ultimatum, and continue to be inconsistent inconsistently, the Original 6 team could go into all-out fire sale to acquire assets that'll be able to improve them long term. In addition, Niyo believes that it's up to management to make the call if they should sell or wait.

Will a fire sale improve the Detroit Red Wings?
