Abdelkader and Larkin should each be awarded a PhD in cliches.  Blashill is obviously lost.  He’s been dealt an unplayable hand for sure, but a good coach will find a way to stop the bleeding and at least be competitive. That hasn’t happened.  Not sure where you go from here.  The Wings’ upcoming schedule doesn’t get any easier. 

On the upside, in eight more months, we may very well hear the following words: “With the first pick in the 2020 NHL draft, the Detroit Red Wings select…....”

What, “...Alex Lafreniere..” and then DET still has no help on the blueline?  Unless you believe Drysdale is the second coming (or possibly Yaroslav Askarov in net), I’m not sure a good draft pick this summer does DET much good to address what they lack.  DET has no lack of talented, young, promising forwards.

I get where you are coming from but regardless it is going to take more than a few years to improve this defense. Some of that time is going to painful watching young guys learn the NHL game.

So, don’t be afraid to draft another forward. If they really wind up with an over abundance, they can trade 1 or 2 to help re-shape the defense.
