Red Wings Rumors: 3 Potential Landing Spots for Shayne Gostisbehere

Detroit Red Wings defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere had a strong 2023-24 season. Because of this, he is gearing up for a nice raise for his next contract. If the Red Wings don’t get him signed before free agency begins, there will be a plethora of interest in him. Let’s go over three teams who could look to target him now.

Washington Capitals: The Washington Capitals are a team to pay very close attention to this offseason when it comes to Gostisbehere. There is no question that they need more offense, so bringing in an offensive defenseman like Gostisbehere would make sense.

Pittsburgh Penguins: The Pittsburgh Penguins will be looking to add to their roster this offseason. It was a disastrous season for them, so they could look to bring in a solid defenseman like Gostisbehere this summer. He also could create magic with Sidney Crosby and Evgeny Malkin on his team.

Tampa Bay Lightning: The Tampa Bay Lightning could look at a player like Gostisbehere this offseason. It’s clear that they need some help on the blueline, and he would give them just that. He also would give them a strong quarterback for their power play.
