Will The Wings Be “Fine” Without Datsyuk And Zetterberg?

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

The Detroit Red Wings navigated through rough seas without Pavel Datsyuk, winning four consecutive games.

Now they must keep their heads above water without their two-best players, as Henrik Zetterberg is out at least two weeks with a herniated disc.

How will they manage? By continuing to get production from Johan Franzen, Daniel Alfredsson, Darren Helm, Gustav Nyquist and others.

“We are missing our two-best players; the good thing is we’re been playing a lot better lately and everyone is playing with a lot more confidence,” Franzen said. “So, hopefully we can ride this out without him.

“We’ve got so many lines going right now, so I think we’ll be fine.”

Wings have an optional skate this morning, Datsyuk and DeKeyser both participating.

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.
