He's making 3 million per right now. He'll want a decent raise. He's rumored to be asking for 5 million per year (https://bleacherreport.com/articles/...contract-talks). The Wings will definitely want to resign him, and have the cap space to do it - the question is are they willing to do it for that much? I bet they will get him somehwere between to $3.5-4.5 mil and resign him; he's not worth $5 mil... but who knows? He could get it on the open market.

Not seeing him coming to the Rangers at that price and for what he brings (great two-way play, but not a Torts kinda guy, and not enough offensive production to justify $5 mil).
