The Malik Report

from Gregg Krupa of the Detroit News,
Learning a trade on the plant and shop is difficult enough. But when it is done live in front of 20,066 folks and one intense coach, and on television, where replays reveal mistakes made shaving let alone while playing the game on the huge white sheet. It might unnerve some.
Confidence, however, is one of Smith’s strengths.
Asked about a whirlwind of a week, he said, “It’s been a little bit of a roller-coaster, but I think I can do that just because of my versatility.
“I’m a good skater.”
Asked for a self-evaluation of the season, Smith said, “I think it’s been picking up, I think just continuing to get better. Every year it’s continued to get better.
“And, yeah, you could use that thing as ‘the young defenseman,’ or whatever, what a young defenseman needs is just to get better.”

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
