Detroit is looking to add some depth to their roster for the upcoming NHL season as the team lost out on several top name players this summer. The Red Wings could use some help on offense and the latest rumor has the team looking at one of the top scorers in the league.
Jarome Iginla is a future Hall-of-Fame player that has spent his entire career with the Calgary Flames, but the veteran could look to finish his career with a contending team and that is where Detroit comes into the picture.
The 35-year-old forward has played five straight seasons without missing a game and last year he totalled 67 points on a struggling team. Moving to a contending team like the Red Wings could give the veteran a second wind in the twilight of his career and give Detroit a shot at winning a Stanley Cup.
Detroit has long been a dominating team in the NHL, but the team has lost some veteran leadership and adding a player like Iginla could help the younger players on and off the ice and give the fans a reason for optimism in the upcoming hockey season.
