The Detroit Red Wings are expecting Thomas Vanek to come to training camp with a chip on his shoulder.
Vanek was bought out by the Minnesota Wild this summer and the Wings have taken a gamble on him. "I’m hoping we’ve got a motivated athlete," said Holland. "It’s risk or reward. We’re hoping it’s going to turn out to be a real reward for us. There’s always some risk but you have to take some risk if you want to try get some reward." The 32-year-old had 18 goals and 41 points in 74 games with Minnesota in 2015-16. Jul 3 - 11:26 AM
