About a week ago the gutter dwellers at Mile High Hockey had this to say about the Wings:
We often joke about how old this team is, but when you sit down and really look at it, it’s worse than you could imagine. The core is sparse, and largely on the downside of their careers. Worse yet, there’s nothing back down on the farm. In the next two years 18 contracts for NHL regulars will be up for renewal. The day of reckoning is finally here. Death’s door is at most a season away.
Not sure if that was eighth grade “Andie” or the hyphenated guy, but wow…so much hate and hope mixed together.
Woops. Dan Rosen?
Working on Detroit’s part of our 30-in-30 series, specifically the prospects part. The Wings have a good group, a lot of hope. It’s amazing.
Looking forward to that Denver? How about this? Hockey’s Future ranks the Wings, organizationally, at number 10. The Dive? 24.

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.
