I NOW Consider The Red Wings On Fire

11/01/2018 at 6:10pm EDT

Steve Yzerman should call whoever he's already hired to coach the Wings next year and let him know Dylan Larkin is going to be the next captain of the Detroit Red Wings.

Larkin is playing like Yzerman expects a Red Wing to play, especially a leader. He's captain material, probably now.

And if the Wings are going to continue to move toward excluding themselves from the Hughes sweepstakes, he needs to continue. Not just with points but with energy and grit. I'm guessing that probably started since the night he decided fighting wasn't his thing. I think that embarrassed him and motivated him. And he looks good. Really good.

Vanek, Double A, Nielsen all out tonight and maybe through the weekend.

Might be time to call up a Griffin forward, eh? Inject some offense to make up for those three? I've heard we have someone down (over) there who's proven he can score.

Hell. Yes. Welcome Wade Megan.

Who in the actual F is Wade Megan and why doesn't his last name start with Z?

Oh, Flip Zabina? Yeah, he's got two goals and 4 points in 8 games. That whole ripening thing may take a wee bit longer than we'd like.

Fabulous.

But...there's a streak. One is nice. Two is coincidental. Three? Not too bad. We shall see.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

LGRW.

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.
