For Real Or Just A Mirage

Too early for this kind of talk for me. Depth will be tested which could be the downfall for the Wings. If they remain healthy, who knows?

from Michael Traikos of the National Post,

Detroit

Record: 3-2-1, third place in the Atlantic

Why it’s for real: While most had picked the Red Wings to finish near the bottom of the standings, early Calder Trophy favourites Lucas Raymond (four goals in six games) and Moritz Seider (five assists) are further proof that GM Steve Yzerman knows how to rebuild a hockey team faster than most thought possible.

Why it’s a mirage: The goaltending is a bit of a mess. Detroit allowed seven goals to Tampa and six to Montreal, which is averaging the fewest of any team in the NHL this year.

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.
