Detroit Stock Trending Down

Stock down

Thomas Greiss
He’s basically become a fixture on the downside of the stock watch, which is damning for a guy signed through next season at a $3.6 million cap hit. Greiss went 0-2 last week, posting a .878 save percentage and 4.68 GAA. When the season began the Wings switched back-and-forth between Jonathan Bernier and Greiss, until both guys gave reason for Bernier to get more starts. Now Greiss has been outplayed by Pickard. Greiss’ seasonal save percentage (.885 in 21 games) is almost as poor as Jimmy Howard’s (.882 in 27 games) was last season.

Troy Stecher
In a game the Wings would like to forget, Stecher stood out in the 7-1 rout for being a team-worst minus-4. On one of the goals, he got caught standing still at his own blue line. The game after that, the Wings switched from the 11-forward, seven-defensemen configuration back to 12-6, and Stecher was the odd D-man out. He was minus-5 in the two games at Nashville.

Filip Zadina
As noted, Svechnikov has three goals on the season. So does Zadina, but he’s played 29 games and he’s played with the likes of Fabbri, Dylan Larkin and Anthony Mantha. Zadina had one assist in four games last week, and had an especially tough time defensively; Bobby Ryan gave him a sympathetic hug after Rocco Grimaldi scored his fourth goal off a turnover by Zadina in the Nashville rout. Zadina has looked stronger this season, but he needs to finish more of his chances.

read on ($$$) for the stock up players who are Pickard, Svechnikov and Fabbri.

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.
