A Look At The Forwards In The Detroit Organization

04/15/2020 at 4:23pm EDT

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Where the Wings have a base to build around toward the future, it’s among the forward position.

The Larkin line; recent draft picks Filip Zadina, Evgeny Svechnikov, Michael Rasmussen and Joe Veleno; trade acquisition Robby Fabbri; and veterans such as Luke Glendening and Darren Helm give the Wings a base.

Although more is needed, given the lack of overall offense firepower.

Justin Abdelkader
Stats: 49 games, 0 goals, 3 assists, 3 points

Outlook: The veteran has struggled for several consecutive seasons and was a healthy scratch at times this season. His future with the Wings is cloudy.

Tyler Bertuzzi
Stats: 71 games, 21 goals, 27 assists, 48 points

Outlook: Posted a second consecutive 21-goal season, playing a complementary style that can work on a variety of lines. Bertuzzi is becoming a respected NHL player.

Christoffer Ehn
Stats: 54 games, 2 goal, 2 assists, 4 points

Outlook: The Wings would like to see more offense out of Ehn, but his instincts and defense can work on the fourth line.

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.
