A Shopping List, Blashill On The Wings And Prospect Videos

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Here are some players to keep an eye on Wednesday and the Red Wings:

- Andrew Copp, N.Y. Rangers, center: The Ann Arbor native and former Michigan star had a terrific season in Winnipeg and with the New York Rangers, and at 28, would seem to nicely fit what the Wings are building. But the Rangers, for whom Copp was a terrific trade deadline acquisition, likely will do whatever they can to keep Copp from hitting the open market.

- Dylan Strome, Chicago, center: The Blackhawks, incredibly, didn't qualify the 25-year-old 6-foot-3, 210-pound center, who had 22 goals last season. Strome could be a nice fit, but there likely will be a lot of competition for his services.

- Vincent Trocheck, Carolina, center: If the Penguins are seriously walking away from Evgeni Malkin, then Trocheck, a Pittsburgh native, seems destined to return home. But the 29-year-old would be a great addition for many teams, including the Wings. Trocheck scored 21 goals in Carolina, and has stated he'd like to complete the unfinished business of winning a Stanley Cup in Raleigh.

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Over the course over seven years, I got the opportunity to coach the team I grew up cheering for," Blashill said Tuesday. "For a young boy who was born in Detroit and grew up in Sault Ste. Marie, it was a great experience. My kids were in the Detroit area for seven straight years, which is not always the norm in coaching, and they got to grow up and really be raised here.

"We didn’t have the success we wanted on the ice, but part of that was the situation we were in and the fact that shortly into my time there, we went into a rebuild. I’m proud of the fact I think that we worked through a lot of difficult times and I think the ship is headed in the right direction."

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.
