Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,

The World Junior Championships will play out like a preview of coming attractions for Detroit Red Wings fans  over the next couple of weeks.

Nine different Red Wings prospects will play in the make-up tournament in Alberta. This replaces the tournament that started last December and then was shut down because of COVID-19. This is a complete do-over. None of last winter’s completed games will be counted.

The Red Wings will have four prospects play on the opening day of the tournament Tuesday. Goalie Jan Bednar will play for Czechia against Slovakia (2 p.m., NHL Network).

Defenseman Eemil Viro’s Finland team plays against Latvia (6 p.m, NHL Network).  Viro will likely  play in the American Hockey League for Grand Rapids this season. Forwards Carter Mazur and Red Savage will play for USA against Germany (10 p.m., NHL Network). Mazur will help Denver University defend its NCAA championship this upcoming season, while Savage will play his sophomore season at Miami.

All Jim Devellano

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

from Stan Fischler at The Hockey News,

The following are Jim's exclusive comments on assorted subjects:

On Building Detroit's First Championship Team: "We had Steve Yzerman but we needed a few more superstars to go along with him. We got two in the 1989 Draft -- Lidstrom and Federov -- so we had three world-class players. We then made a deal to add a power forward, Brendan Shanahan, giving up Paul Coffey and Keith Primeau!!! These four players drove the bus."

About The Current Rebuild: "It's been long and tough but we are making slow, gradual progress and getting better. We now have terrific young players such as Dylan Larkin, Lucas Raymond, Tyler Bertuzzi, and Moritz Seidel, the young defenseman who won the Calder Trophy.

About The Current Rebuild: "It's been long and tough but we are making slow, gradual progress and getting better. We now have terrific young players such as Dylan Larkin, Lucas Raymond, Tyler Bertuzzi, and Moritz Seidel, the young defenseman who won the Calder Trophy.

Looking Ahead: "Those young players are the building blocks and we'll keep adding to them. Steve has acquired a lot of extra Draft picks and is using them wisely."

Playoff Possibilities: "I suspect that we're getting closer to competing for a playoff spot but now -- in a 32-team NHL -- it's never been so tough with 16 teams not making it. I feel that we're two seasons away but we are getting better."

Overall Overview: "Steve Yzerman has just completed his third season. We have improved some in each of his three seasons and we will be somewhat better in the upcoming season because he added four good players from Free Agency in July. Steve got goalie Ville Husso, right wing David Perron, who can score, Andrew Copp, who can play center or wing, and Ben Chiarot, a defenseman who is big and mobile. These four players are upgrades for us. I believe that our team can push for 90 points!"
