from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

"Mostly experience," Greiss said of what attributes he can benefit the Wings. "I've been in the league a number of years now and played on numerous different teams (with) different outlooks, and different success.

"How to navigate a long season and just be there for the young guys and help the guys be as successful as we can."

Greiss is looking forward to playing in a hockey market and Original Six organization.

"A great hockey city, a great organization that treats people well, very professional in every regard, I'm just looking forward to being in a real hockey city," Greiss said. "I've played in the desert (and different markets) and just looking forward to being in a real hockey city.

"It's a good team and a new challenge and it's good to get some change in your life and face different challenges. Just looking forward to it."...

The opportunity it presented myself as a player and where the organization is going," said Stecher, of what appealed to him about joining the Wings. "It just appealed to me and I couldn't be more excited about joining this organization."

Former Vancouver teammates Alex Biega and Sam Gagner have already reached out to Stecher, welcoming Stecher — who was playing for his hometown team in the Canucks — to the Wings.

"I'm excited to come to Detroit," Stecher said. "I know they're excited to have me and I'm excited to get there. There no sour taste with Vancouver. I understand it's a business and and business decisions have to be made, and unfortunately I was one of them.

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.
