Detroit Sports Radio On Williams, Grigorenko

Asst. GM Jim Nill told WXYT tonight that he feels Wing prospect Igor Grigorenko is getting stale in Russia. Nill stressed his belief that Grigorenko needs to be stateside next year and that his season in Russia thus far has been "solid, but not spectacular." Ken Kal, Wings play-by-play announcer, followed Nill and said he doesn't expect Jason Williams to return to the lineup until after Thanksgiving. Kal said he hasn't discussed it with the coaching staff, but gets the idea that the Wings depth is good enough now not to have to rush Williams back.

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. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
