Khan(!): Discussions With Schneider Begin

And the first deep digger to climb out of his post-playoff hole is….Khan(!).  That’s why you’re the captain, Ansar.  After only 8 days of silence, you’re back with a vengeance.

The Wings appear to be making progress in contract talks with defenseman Mathieu Schneider. General manger Ken Holland said Friday that he spoke with Schneider’s agent, Mike Gillis, earlier this week and will talk to him again next week.

The club has made it a priority to re-sign Schneider, who’s coming off two of the best seasons of his career. And Schneider has said several times that Detroit has been the best stop in his career. So it looks like they’ll find a way to get a deal done.

Ansar also mentions the likelihood that we’ve seen the last of Markov.  More here.

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
