Why Watch The Wings?

01/28/2020 at 6:34am EST

Reaching 20 victories requires the Wings to win roughly a quarter (.258) of their remaining games, which is almost the pace they set through 51 games (.235). Jimmy Howard has played considerably better the last four games, and Jonathan Bernier is expected to be back the first week of February, but even when the goaltending has been good, the Wings have struggled. They are flirting with breaking a record black mark for the organization: The 1985-86 Wings hold the franchise record for worst season at 17-57-6 and 40 points (but they made the playoffs the next season, under the leadership of first-year captain Steve Yzerman).

That's part of the respose from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press when a fan asked "“Why should I continue to watch this team? Will they even win 20 games?"

There's more.

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.
