Time To Prove It

10/14/2022 at 12:04am EDT

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

"It means something that we went out and acquired so many players," Larkin said. "But we have to go out and prove it. Just because you look at the roster on paper (and it looks improved) doesn't mean anything. We have to prove it and finally that day has come to do that.

"It's exciting. We've been waiting for this. It's been a long summer. It's been a lot of excitement around town."

Some of that excitement also stems from a new voice behind the bench....

Lalonde is in his first NHL head-coaching job. He has consistently talked about entering this job, this position, with a "fresh start" in regards to personnel on this roster.

Lalonde feels this particular roster is fast, and wants to utilize that speed. He wants to this lineup to be difficult to play against.

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.
