What The GM Expects From The Wings

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

They will have not played an actual game in about 10 months because of the pandemic, which ended a season the Red Wings would largely like to forget.

The Wings’ had the NHL’s worst record and hope on the ice seemed far away.

But general manager Steve Yzerman overhauled the roster, and has brighter expectations for the rapidly approaching, and much-awaited new season.

“I can’t predict what we’re going to be, but I hope we’re improved from last year,” Yzerman said Tuesday during a Zoom call with media. “How much I don’t know.

“We’ve made several changes and the players were very enthusiastic when we talked to them prior to signing with the team. That was very encouraging. There will be renewed enthusiasm. A majority of our players are on short-term contracts. They have a lot to play for, a lot of personal motivation.”

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.
