Filip Zadina Showing Progress

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

At this point in the schedule, the final result of the Red Wings’ game doesn’t matter much to most fans.

Tuesday’s 4-3 overtime loss in Colorado was disappointing — a gut-punch, actually, the way it occurred. But, ultimately, it was another loss.

But the development of certain players is what intrigues Wings’ fans, specifically Filip Zadina.

In a season that can’t end soon enough for most fans, Zadina’s development is a huge bright spot....

Zadina, 19, has seen his ice time increase steadily in these four games.

He’s gone from 10 minutes 38 seconds to 14:09 to 15:30 to 18:16 Tuesday in Denver, adding a career-high five shots against the Avalanche, tying for his career-high 21 shifts, and a plus-1, the first game he’s been plus in the plus-minus category.

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.
