from Andrew Gross of Newsday,

Neither Barry Trotz nor Mathew Barzal could suppress a smile when talking about ex-Islanders goalie Thomas Greiss, who played his first game against his former team since leaving via free agency when the Red Wings visited UBS Arena on Thursday night.

“Greisser was a great teammate,” Barzal said. “He was a really fun guy. Funny when we played soccer. Always had a little funny comment. Loved having him after practice. He took a lot of shots. He took a lot of breakaways for the guys. Very unorthodox in that setting so it was really fun having to come up with new stuff and try to beat him different ways.”

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.
