from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Steadily, at times stealthily, and sound fiscally, Yzerman made the Wings his team. Bringing in Lalonde was the final piece. He wants the Wings to make it hard for opponents to get out of their zone, and to play in sync. “We’d love to have that be our identity,” Lalonde said.

Players are buying into Lalonde’s fresh-start approach.

“There’s a lot of energy,” Lucas Raymond said. “You have to prove yourself to the new coaches and I feel like the new coaches brought a lot of energy, as well.

“I think the biggest thing is everyone wants to adjust and play with a high pace. It has felt really good.”...

“I think there’s more intensity, more jump, especially from some of the newer guys,” goalie Alex Nedeljkovic said. “There’s a little bit of excitement in the entire room. That’s been the biggest difference.”

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.
