Notes On Exit Day

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The Wings won six of their final eight games and eight of their final 11.

“It’s been a good thing,” Holland said. “I like that we’re winning off the backs of the young players, which provides hope for the future of this franchise. That’s the most important thing.

“And whether you have the fourth lottery odds or the fifth lottery odds, we’re talking about one or two percent (difference) going into the draft.”...

“Let’s hope Tuesday night we get lucky in the lottery,” Holland said. “And if not, we’re going to get a good player, no matter where we pick in the draft.

“Certainly if you get up there to No. 1 or No. 2 you’re getting a really, really good player. But in order to get one or two, even if you have the worst record in the league, you only get an 18.5 percent chance at the first pick.”

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.
