from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

The four-way battle for what appears to be just one available spot on the Detroit Red Wings defense has just begun.

Libor Sulak made a favorable first impression Thursday, picking up a pair of assists and using his skating ability to create scoring opportunities in a 4-2 preseason victory over the Chicago Blackhawks at Little Caesars Arena.

"I like him a lot," Red Wings forward Thomas Vanek said. "I didn't know much about him. He's really good, the way he skates, the way he battles. He's not afraid to take shots, he's not afraid to jump up in the play. I thought he was one of our best players.

"If you can skate like that, you better join (the rush). I wish I had a quarter of his speed. He was great. Hopefully he can keep this up. It definitely helps our team."

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.
