Don't Trade These Guys

02/13/2019 at 9:09am EST

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Three players expected to draw interest as the trade deadline nears all showed why they’re so important to the Detroit Red Wings.

Their playoff hopes are all but mathematically extinguished, but that only inflates the emphasis on maintaining a competitive culture. The Wings head into Thursday’s game against the Ottawa Senators on a winning note, and Jimmy Howard, Luke Glendening and Nick Jensen all played key roles in making that happen.

Howard made 19 saves in the first period of Tuesday’s 3-2 victory over the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena, and Glendening and Jensen each had two points. It was a good performance overall for the Wings, considerably better than their outings at Buffalo and Chicago.

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.
