Detroit’s Farm System Ranked 13th

from Corey Pronman of The Athletic,

The Wings’ system changed a lot over the past year. It graduated some key prospects and had an important draft in 2019. Filip Zadina was a guy I was very enthusiastic about at this time last season, but I may have hyped him a tad too much. He remains the team’s top prospect even though I bumped him down a notch. The Wings have a lot of very good players on the way but still look to be in the early parts of their rebuild.

Key additions: Moritz Seider, Robert Mastrosimone, Albin Grewe

Key subtractions/graduations: Michael Rasmussen, Filip Hronek, Dennis Cholowski

2018 farm system ranking: No. 7

2019 draft grade: B

Justin Bourne of The Athletic ($$$) did a column on special skills that make other players jealous…

Tier two
Dylan Larkin’s compete

It is true that almost every NHLer works hard. Then you have a smaller group, the guys who work harder amongst those hard-working guys. Then there are the guys who compete so hard night in night out in borders on weird. That’s the company Larkin keeps and it’s the stuff that captains are made from.

awood40 is still at it with part 6 of Zetterberg highlights, this one just south of an hour long and features the 2017 and 18 season.

Aaahhh…gotta love him, Boss.  He’s been keeping up the Wings spirit all summer long.
