Quick Recap- Detroit/Carolina

Wings 3 Hurricanes 1

Instead of focusing on the final score, it's time to critique the play of the young players on the team.

Michael Rasmussen looks like he has figured out how to play and has shown great improvement his last ten games or so. He is playing with an edge and using his big body to his advantage.

Filip Zadina is in the same boat, works hard, no floating and doesn't look lost on the ice.

If those two can be depended on every night and play 18-20 minutes a game, the Wings can start thinking about the third and fourth lines.

Next season would look like- Larkin & Bertuzzi, Rasmumssen and Zadina. It's the Scotty Bowman thinking, find two who can play together and from there the third player on the line should be an easy fit or even make the third player on the line interchangeable.

Detroit goals are below.

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.
