While I Was Away

A couple of items you may have missed the last two days while I was ill and undergoing tests. The results won't be back until Monday so a little bit of stress on my end.

Thanks for all the well wishes too.

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

How much should Anthony Mantha be paid on his next contract? And for how long will the Detroit Red Wings lock him up?

Mantha believes having missed 28 games due to injuries will make contract negotiations between his agent and general manager Steve Yzerman a little trickier.

“It will be complicated, I think,” Mantha said. “My (job) is to play hockey. My agent and Stevie are going to talk. Maybe they’ve started. If not, over the summer and try to see what I could bring to the team in the future.”


from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

As the Detroit Red Wings enter the final month of the season, the intrigue over a potential Moritz Seider sighting increases.

The top defense prospect in the organization has been sidelined since Feb. 22, when he appeared to suffer a head injury after being hit during a game between his Grand Rapids Griffins and the San Antonio Rampage.

Seider has been in Detroit while rehabbing, but he practiced with the Griffins on Thursday in Rockford and is expected to play if not this weekend, then next week.

The Griffins are trying to gain a foothold in the AHL playoffs, while the Wings have 14 games left, starting with hosting the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday. Should the Griffins string together a winning streak, there’s potentially a window to call up Seider and give him a look at the NHL level.


Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News on Filip Zadina hitting the ice again...

It was only an optional skate Friday morning, and there weren’t many teammates on the ice with him.

But it still felt awfully good to Filip Zadina to be going through a game-day routine.

“I’m feeling better, it has been way better than it was before,” said Zadina, who revealed he had a fractured ankle, forcing him out of the lineup after the Feb. 1 game.

“I’m just trying to get in shape and getting back with the team again and getting my confidence back.”

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.
