Also per George,

Staal wasn’t hurt, he just didn’t play today. Berggren progressing, McIsaac progressing.

Blashill tells Khan that Dylan Larkin will be available in the preseason, but not in the first couple of games, and not today. He’ll get in 3 exhibition games.

Ethan Sears of the Wings website,

The result, of course, is not what matters on a day like Sunday.

The Detroit Red Wings’ annual Red and White scrimmage ended in a penalty shootout, the White team taking it after Lucas Raymond and Vladislav Namestnikov converted, but the moments worth remembering came in snapshots like Moritz Seider quarterbacking a power play, or Raymond laying off a pass in the slot for a Robby Fabbri chance.

These little things - if things go right, they’ll add up.

It’s impossible to know whether they will on September 26, but for a young team like the Red Wings, that’s where the value - and the excitement - comes in a scrimmage.

Here are three takeaways from Sunday’s scrimmage.

I hope Blash puts Raymond in Vrana’s spot (assuming he misses at least one game), and gives him a big chance to shine. Of course, my #1 hope is that Jake is fine.

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.
