Octopi Hockeytown – #15 – 8/8/14

This week on the episode No. 15 of Octopi Hockeytown, host Austin Goodman discusses the importance of signing the current restricted free agents.

The Red Wings currently have two restricted free agents that have yet to be re-signed, Landon Ferraro and Danny DeKeyser. The only unrestricted free agent left to re-sign is Daniel Alfredsson. In the first segment, Goodman discusses the importance of each restricted and unrestricted Red Wing free agent.

After, Tomas Tatar recently signed a three-year, $8.25 million deal with the Wings through 2017. Goodman and the Octopi team are extremely happy with the signature brought to the media world last week by Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press.

In the final segment, Goodman examines the new regime taking their place behind the bench with head coach, Mike Babcock, this upcoming season.

Tony Granato, Jim Hiller and Andrew Brewer, along with the head coach, will lead the 2014-2015 Red Wings to what could potentially be another playoff and Stanley Cup contending season. The question remains, what will each of these coaches singly bring to the table? Goodman talks about each coach and what his potential could be in Detroit.

Austin Goodman is the host of Octopi Hockeytown for Impact Sports.
