Detroit’s Dynamic Duo

Nice feature on Draper and Maltby via NHL.com,
"I've played with 'Malts' forever," Draper says. "It's scary, but we've played almost 800 games together with him being my left wing." The number of games might have been slightly exaggerated by Draper for emphasis’ sake, but the point was duly made. These guys have become extensions of each other on the ice, feeding off each other's strengths to form one of the best shut-down forward tandems in the game.

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
