DETROIT — Wings coach Mike Babcock said the sixth spot on the blue line is still up for grabs.
“Right now I’ve got five guys that seem to be in on a nightly basis,” Babcock said. “It’s been a rotation. I don’t want a rotation.”
Niklas Kronwall, Jonathan Ericsson, Jakub Kindl, Kyle Quincey and Danny DeKeyser are in, while Brendan Smith, Ian White, Carlo Colaiacovo and Brian Lashoff are competing for that sixth spot.
“I want somebody to grab it and keep it,” Babcock said. “I don’t know exactly what I’m going to do in Calgary.”
