'Things are changing' between Detroit Red Wings, RFA Andreas Athanasiou

There's finally movement on the Andreas Athanasiou front.

Sheahan, 25, is in the final year of a two-year, $4.15 million contract.

Athanasiou, who set career highs during his sophomore campaign with 18 goals and 11 assists, is expected to rejoin the Red Wings from Switzerland and begin practicing with the team next week. Wilson will likely slot into a bottom-six role with the Red Wings and has no fantasy value. He has appeared in all eight of the Red Wings' games this year but has yet to tally a point.

According to CapFriendly, the Red Wings have $0 in cap space with 22 players on their 23-man roster.

Despite this, the Red Wings still have some of the NHL's most exciting young players on their roster in Dylan Larkin, Anthony Mantha and of course, Athanasiou. What do you think of the moves the Red Wings made today? In 20 playoff games, Wilson had three goals and three assists.

The Red Wings have traded forward Riley Sheahan and a 2018 fifth round pick to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for forward Scott Wilson and a 2018 third round pick. He showed potential the season prior, netting nine goals and chipping in with five more helpers over 37 games, his first cup of coffee with the Red Wings. It takes time for players to find their stride in the National Hockey League, and while Athanasiou wasn't scoring goals or recording points every single game, anybody who's watched him play has seen what he's capable of.

Athanasiou is now skating with a Swiss team as he waits out the situation and is believed to have offers from the KHL.
