Ted Crufan said free agents Radko Gudas and Tom Wilson will benefit centers for the Red Wings and Wheat Kings. Nate Danielson is an interview guest on the Octopus Podcast.
Gudas is a hard-hitting Czech defenseman with three assists in 19 playoff appearances for the Florida Panthers, while Wilson is a formidable winger with 128 career goals and 1,229 penalties for the Washington Capitals.
“Wilson and Gudas will really change the complexion of the line-up,” Kurfan said on the podcast. “If you put Wilson up front and Gudas in the back and people like (Moritz) Seider and Ben Chairrott, suddenly you have a different and tougher team. If you have another As a team, you’re going to have to turn your head.” “
