Khan Continues His Scouting Report, This One Is A Mystery

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

He hasn't played up to the level he showed during his surprise 2009 playoff run, but he still has a promising upside. He struggled in 2009-10 but has improved incrementally since then, posting a plus-27 rating in his past 158 games, after posting a minus-22 rating in his first 74 career regular season games. He has an opportunity to assume a greater role this season (if there is one), following the departures of Nicklas Lidstrom and Brad Stuart. *%&$#@ could end up playing on the top defense pair, with Niklas Kronwall. In any event, he should log more than 20 minutes a game for the first time in his career. He also will have a bigger role on the penalty kill.

Is it bad if I already know it is before I clicked “more”?

I think it would be bad mrfluffy if you didn’t know who it was before you clicked.

By the way, “*%&$#@” is the perfect nickname for Ericsson.

well, there is a Cee-Lo Green song that describes my feelings toward the fiasco in general. Not just a singular player

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.
