The Wings are holding an optional morning skate, in the meantime...

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Thumbs up
- Tyler Bertuzzi: Playing primarily on a line with Dylan Larkin and Anthony Mantha, Bertuzzi has taken advantage of his opportunity. Is he the most talented player on the team? No. But few players get more out of their skill set, or can do more things to somehow put the puck in the net.

- Filip Hronek: On a better team Hronek might be playing regularly on the second or third defensive pairing and easing his way into the NHL. But with this roster, Hronek has been thrust into larger responsibilities and hasn’t been overwhelmed. He seems to love the challenge.

- The future: At this point, all Wings fans can hope for is a better future. There are some pieces the organization can build around (Hronek, Filip Zadina, Larkin, Bertuzzi, Mantha) and now it’s a matter of developing the other prospects – and accumulating more of them.

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.
