A Day Of Practice

Good piece from George Malik of The Malik Report,

The Detroit Red Wings’ prospects took part in an “hour-plus” practice on Friday, and while they won’t be playing tonight (due in no small part to the big football “Patriot Game” between Traverse City West and Traverse City Central this evening), the Wings’ prospects needed to regroup somewhat after losing control of the game during last night’s 5-4 win over Dallas.

As such, Grand Rapids Griffins coaches Ben Simon, Matt MacDonald, Todd Krygier and Mike Knuble were joined by two goaltending coaches (Brian Mahoney-Wilson and the as-yet-unnamed “new guy”) and both Daniel Cleary and Shawn Horcoff on the ice…And as the team skated in David’s Rink at Centre ICE Arena, a certain Steve Yzerman watched practice intently (with Pat Verbeek by his side).

I would describe Friday’s practice as something of a “corrective lens” placed upon a slightly near-sighted Red Wings team.

Paul, between you and GJM, the Red Wings coverage is WELL taken care of.

Thanks Chris. I just don’t have the time to dive in deeply with the prospects, but George goes above and beyond.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
