Contributions From The New Guys

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Perron scored twice in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Kings and has three goals on the season. His second against the Kings came during a power play. That's what he was signed to do: Help the Wings be effective with a man advantage, something they have struggled to do the last three seasons.

"We finally get one when it matters," Dylan Larkin said. "That attitude where we have a guy like DP coming over the boards when it matters, when we need a goal — that was significant."

Perron, who won the Stanley Cup with the St. Louis Blues in 2019, noted the Wings are eager to keep getting better.

"I just loving having the feeling coming to the rink, knowing we are not satisfied," Perron said. "We know we can get better. We’ve got a good start, and we’re looking at how can we keep building this thing."

Chiarot is another veteran who provides leadership as part of his attributes.

"I think all the new guys have been around the league for a while," he said. "Coming to a young team that is still kind of establishing a culture and a way of doing things — being able to step in and help with that has made it easier for us to step in and be comfortable right away.

"It’s good for everyone to get off on the right foot and feeling good about their game. We feel good about our game as a team."



Glad for the early success and everyone still having the warm and fuzzies.  The D hasn’t been that great and still needs work, but everyone buying into the idea at least verbally.

It was one of the new guys the first to two goals this season.  He had a Pair On.

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.
