Grading The Wings

Scott Burnside of The Athletic grades every NHL team at this point of the season.

On the Wings...

New Grade: D-minus

July Grade: C

Everyone from new GM Steve Yzerman on down knew that this was going to be another difficult campaign for the once-proud Red Wings. What we didn’t know is that they would be this much of a disaster, a team only intermittently competitive and prone to long stretches of disorganized play. Their league-worst goals allowed and league-worst goals scored per game numbers suggest a team a million miles from anywhere. With that said, if there is one person who can effect a change of fortune in short time it’s Yzerman, as his work in Tampa indicates, and there are certainly building block pieces, especially up front, already in place.

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.
