The Red Wings need to get a defenseman to play alongside Moritz Seider and although Edvinsson could one day be that, he’s not right now. And let’s not forget before I get attacked for this, he’s yet to even play in an NHL game. He has no idea how difficult this game is at this level.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying he sucks. I’m just saying that for our expectations to be so high for a guy who has yet to play in an actual game, we should probably look elsewhere for now. That’s where Chychrun comes into play.

Not only would Chychrun be a unreal acquisition for Yzerman and the Red Wings, but it’ll give us the thing we’ve been missing- the left-handed defenseman shot.

Anyways, back to Jakob Chychrun.

The Red Wings need to add the defenseman that can score from the blue line and who can move the puck with pace and can play with pace as well. This is a quick Red Wings team with a lot of speed and therefore we need to make sure that the passes can be put on the teammates sticks in stride and vice versa.

If we don’t get someone who meets those requirements, then we have a problem. So, I feel they need Chychrun and Chychrun need’s a team like the Red Wings
