from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Bobby Ryan realized the need to approach this training camp and preseason differently in order to extend his NHL career, at least with the Detroit Red Wings.

“When I look at the lineup here, and I’m realistic, the top-six is pretty well spoken for, as well it should be, those guys have earned that opportunity,” Ryan said. “I came in with the expectations that I would be a bottom-six player or maybe even the 13th forward, so I don’t think I can change anything.”...

“I would like to broaden my game, be a little more physical, a little more demanding of the puck below the circles and holding it and ragging it instead of taking opportunities to create,” Ryan said Monday during training camp in Traverse City. “Just be a little more patient in those areas for me because your leash isn’t the same as a top-six player right now. I’m OK with that. I won’t change much but my patience level with the puck has to be a little better and I have to err on the side of caution at times. That’s part of the process as you get older and start to play different roles within the team.”

Is there a way to pass along the fact that boom microphone technology is a thing that exists? Whoever runs the Wings’s pressers needs to get a clue. I gave up trying to watch these things, as it’s basically a waste if you don’t know what the answer-er is talking about.

Wings media department has never been fan friendly and it continues to this day.

I would give Ryan a spot just for what he says
