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

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

That's according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.

Unfortunately for both sides, the one-year term likely means a future contract dispute could be in the cards if both sides fail to find common ground next offseason, especially if the Red Wings fail to clear significant cap space from their current roster prior to next offseason. It hasn't gotten any better this season, with Sheahan going without a point in eight games.

Sheahan has had an up and down career since the Red Wings drafted him 21st overall in the 2010 NHL Draft.

The Wings also had made Athanasiou a two-year offer for $1.9 million a season. Oshie scored the tying goal and Ovechkin won it on a power play less than two minutes into the extra period, as he deployed that famous one-timer slap shot from his off-wing. While the deal comes with only a one-year term, it's essentially an opportunity for the Red Wings to continue developing their young prospect while pushing the contract discussions down the road for the time being. He debuted during the 2015-16 campaign and scored nine goals and 14 points in 37 games.

Dunlap: DHS Grants Maine's Request For Another REAL ID Waiver
Mark Dayton announced Wednesday that the state received an extension to allow old IDs at airports through October 10, 2018. As of Oct.15, 64,614 people have done that - but there are more than one million people on file who could make the change.

Ovechkin is now only two goals behind the entire Montreal Canadiens team - in the same amount of games. He flew there at the start of this month and has been skating with a team there while debating whether to play in Europe or the KHL.

Athanasiou, 23, needed to sign somewhere in the National Hockey League before December 1, which is the deadline for any restricted free agent who remains without a contract.

After agreeing on a contract agreement with Andreas Athanasiou, the Red Wings gained the financial flexibility to do so by trading forward Riley Sheahan and a 2018 fifth-round draft pick to the Penguins for forward Scott Wilson and a 2018 third-round draft pick.
