Several prospects battling for jobs will be in the lineup tonight for the Detroit Red Wings in their preseason finale against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Little Caesars Arena (7 p.m., Fox Sports Detroit).

The group does not include defenseman Dennis Cholowski and forward Michael Rasmussen.

Should we read into that that Cholowski and Rasmussen have wrapped up spots on the season-opening roster?

"You can, but I'm not," coach Jeff Blashill said. "They've all played lots of games. You can read whatever you want into it, but we'll keep making evaluations."

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.
