    Default Oliwer Kaski

    Oliwer Kaski is the top Euro free agent defenseman available this summer. I just created his profile at DobberProspects if you want to know more about him >> https://dobberprospects.com/player/oliwer-kaski/

    He's not quite as good as Lawrence Pilut but he's pretty close. I liked Pilut's defensive game a bit more, though.

    Seeing some indications that Yzerman has swooped down and signed him. Nothing airtight and reputable though.

    Really good opportunity for an offensive D in DET. Really good.

    Kaski wont be sneaking through anyone's draft now.

    I would be mashing the Add button if he was FA.

    Is it just me or is the waive of international free agents seemingly increasing year over year lately?

    You like him over Hronek and Cholowski? Never seen this kid play.

    if he's similar to Pilut, then he should battle for a 5/6 slot in camp. PP1 is Green's until he hits IR

    I like his chances against Hronek and Cholowski who are far from assured of prominent roles. You look at the guys DET has under contract and once Green goes down there is not a stable situation at all. Kaski is worth a roll of the dice.

    Kaski has officially signed with the Red Wings now. One of the top Euro free agents this summer and arguably the one with the highest fantasy potential. https://dobberprospects.com/player/oliwer-kaski/

    You guys still think he could be relevant in Detroit with the arrival of Seider?

    Seider will not be playing in the NHL in the next two years.

    Even without Seider really challenging a potential Kaski role, I doubt there's any access to PP time with Green and Hronek well ahead of him for those good offensive minutes. And I think by the end of next season, Hronek will have locked up the job.

    Kaski seems like a good depth option, though.
