As the dust settles following the NHL Draft and free agency, let's examine three ways the Detroit Red Wings quietly improved during the offseason.

First, the Red Wings made a slight improvement within their top-six forwards. Re-signing Patrick Kane was a significant move, especially with Kane being fully healthy and ready for a full season. Replacing David Perron with Vladimir Tarasenko also adds scoring potential. Tarasenko, a proven scorer, could easily surpass Perron's production.
Second, the Red Wings slightly improved their goaltending. Ville Husso, Alex Lyon, and James Reimer were replaced by veteran netminder Cam Talbot. Talbot's consistent performance, with a 2.50 goals against average and a .913 save percentage last season, offers a more reliable option in goal.
Third, Detroit's bottom-six forwards are now tougher to play against. Tyler Motte's addition and the potential of Jonatan Berggren or Marco Kasper provide a more complete and gritty lineup. While Motte won't contribute much offensively, his defensive reliability and penalty-killing skills add value.
Overall, while the Red Wings didn't make any blockbuster moves, these changes quietly strengthened their roster for the upcoming season.
