Red Wings: 3 Top Trade Candidates Heading Into 2024

Christmas is over, and now the new year is less than one week away. Thus, over these next few days, we here at NHL Trade Rumors will discuss the three top trade candidates from each team heading into 2024.

In this latest edition of the series, let's focus on the struggling Detroit Red Wings.

Patrick Kane: If the Red Wings continue to struggle and fall out of the playoff race by the deadline, expect Patrick Kane to be dealt. He is only signed for the season, and he would be a very popular trade target, as he has been on fire this season after offseason hip surgery. 

James Reimer: James Reimer has been getting a lot of attention in the rumor mill. Now that the Red Wings are falling in the standings, he will also be a prime rental candidate if they are out of the playoff race in March. 

Shayne Gostisbehere: Shayne Gostisbehere is having a strong offensive season for the Red Wings and will get a lot of attention if made available at the deadline. He has an expiring contract, so he would be a big-time rental for teams looking to add offense to their blue line.
