"Clean Slate" For Brendan Perlini In Detroit

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

The newest Detroit Red Wings player is a big forward with a smooth stride and a penchant for shooting the puck.

That’s a pretty good list of assets to a team that has struggled to score and won just four times their first 13 games. Brendan Perlini is penciled in to make his debut Friday at Carolina, and while expectations are muted as he adjusts to new surroundings, possibilities are intriguing.

“He’s got two things here,” coach Jeff Blashill said Thursday. “He’s got a clean slate, and he’s got opportunity. He has to make the most of those.”

Perlini, 23, is motivated to establish a foothold with an NHL team after being unable to do so at two prior stops.

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.
