It's A Process, The Question Is How Long Of One?

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Surely there are many fans out there who wanted to see the likes of Filip Zadina, Joe Veleno, Moritz Seider, etc., on the NHL roster.

That wasn’t going to happen.

There are still plenty of veteran players on contracts who will be here for another year or two.

Some prospects didn’t exactly make it a tough decision for the Wings.

Zadina didn’t have a goal in the preseason and wasn’t much of a factor often.

Fans were thrilled with Veleno after the prospects tournament, but Veleno looked like a 19-year-old lacking experience once the NHL preseason schedule got underway. He hasn’t played a minute of pro hockey yet.

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.
