Talking Lines Today

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

So where, and with whom, will the new guys play?

Left wing center right wing

Tyler Bertuzzi – Dylan Larkin – Anthony Mantha

This line isn’t expected to be broken apart at this point, and why should it?...

Vladislav Namestnikov – Robby Fabbri – Filip Zadina

A caveat here is the possibility of simply flipping Fabbri and Namestnikov....

LLeft defense – right defense

Danny DeKeyser – Filip Hronek

This is assuming DeKeyser is healthy after missing the majority of last season to a herniated disc.

But the Wings are confident DeKeyser will be able to play, and if he is, it’ll give the Wings a formidable top defensive pairing....

Marc Staal – Troy Stecher

The two offseason additions should help stabilize the defense.

Both Staal and Stecher had good defensive metrics last season and form a competitive shutdown pairing.

a bit more (paid) on each of the above and other combos...

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.
