With the addition of Alex Nedeljkovic, the goaltender situation seems to be solved.  Thomas Greiss is the incumbent and should start the first game against Tampa Bay.

With nine games in 17 days to start the season, both goaltenders will split games in order to identify who deserves to play most often.

This tandem should keep the Red Wings in most games throughout the season.
