I missed this earlier… Ted Kulfan gives out his final grades in a slideshow.

Some of the lower grades are C- for Cholowski and a D for Abdelkader.

Not sure about C- for Cholo.  TOI was going to burn him out or did burn him out.  I think he will be fine, as he showed at the beginning of year.

Dana Wakiji of the Wings’ website,

If there’s one thing that the Detroit Red Wings can all agree on, they do not want to be in this position at this time next year.

After missing the playoffs for the third straight year as the team continues to rebuild, the overwhelming feeling is disappointment.

“I would say one feeling is how much today sucks,” Wings coach Jeff Blashill said bluntly. “It sucks. It sucks being out, it sucks not getting ready for the playoffs, it sucks having to answer these questions, it sucks having to have another meeting about how we’re not good enough. I would say that more than anything else. Because the only people that can change that are us.”

For one of the team’s young leaders, today and this past Saturday’s 7-1 loss to the Buffalo Sabres is something that will stick in the team’s craw.

“I think this day. The game against Buffalo. That kind of still stings for me,” Dylan Larkin said. “We battled so hard all year and to have that one game leaves a bad taste in my mouth, and I’m sure the fans who came, out of their mouths, too and the coaches.

via WXYZ,

Dylan Larkin talked with Brad Galli about the very realistic chance he becomes the captain of the Detroit Red Wings this summer.

“It would be a great honor, obviously it’s the team I grew up watching. It’d be pretty cool,” he said.

Watch it.
