Step Forward This Season For The Detroit Red Wings?

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Hope springs eternal in the human breast, the poet Alexander Pope wrote, and for a hockey player, hope peaks in autumn. Every player, every team approaches a new season with the goal of making the playoffs, because once there, hope is renewed. Anything can happen.

This is where Larkin’s heart is as the Wings head into the 2019-20 season.

“For me, it’d be really disappointing if we didn’t take a step forward this year,” he said. “With the pieces we’ve acquired and the feeling we have in the locker room, it’d be really disappointing if we’re sitting at the bottom of the league early April and not at least fighting for a playoff spot.

“We believe in here that we can have one of the playoff spots in our conference and we can shock people, and we’re going to do it by defending well and we’re going to rely on some guys coming in that are going to have big breakout seasons and it’s going to help our team and propel us forward.”

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.
