The Improving Detroit Red Wings

from Gregg Krupa of the Detroit News,

People who looked away from the Red Wings around Halloween, deciding that losing hockey did not fit on their busy, mid-autumn calendars, have missed some developments.

After a miserable first 10 games, the Wings are flying.

And, before the same people, and others, get too disappointed about their plans for the Wings to draft prime NHL prospect Jack Hughes with the No. 1 pick in June, consider that the team’s seven wins in the past eight games are the product of critically important development.

A half-dozen potential stars — Dylan Larkin, Andreas Athanasiou, Anthony Mantha, Dennis Cholowski, Tyler Bertuzzi and Michael Rasmussen — have played significant roles in the victories.

Hoping the Red Wings lose, as their prospective stars play better and shape their careers, is fraught with peril.

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.
