Detroit Players Trying To Stay Focused

from Dana Wakiji of the Wings' website,

For the veteran Green, it's not his first rodeo so he just goes about his business as normal.

"After being through it many times, it's obviously an odd experience but if you play for a long time, you get used to it," Green said after Saturday's practice at the BELFOR Training Center. "It's part of the business. Obviously with the relationships, it makes it difficult.

"For me, no, it's not a distraction. I mean, you worry about day to day in this league. Obviously, anything can happen but it's not something I stew over too much."

Forward Luke Glendening says focusing on the immediate task at hand -- Sunday's game against Calgary -- is the only thing to do.

"You can only control what you can control, so you just got o show up and keep doing your job to the best of your ability," Glendening said. "You're here until they tell you something different, so that's the way you got to approach it."

For Wings coach Jeff Blashill, he knows this time of year can be tricky.

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.
