Welcome to the newest episode of WIIM Radio. This episode we had me, Kyle, Jeff, and Joseph on right after the Wings' win over the Ottawa Senators to react to that and also other things of Red Wings note. Here's the rundown:
- The win over the Senators - Anderson vs. the Defense, who deserves more credit for this game going to OT; the usage of Glendening versus how it had been, and the brilliance of Gustav Nyquist.
- The return of Pavel Datsyuk - Pavs has three games under his belt and he's looking like the magic man we know he is. Let's all enjoy that together.
- What's up with Tomas Jurco - The guy can't get into the lineup over Andersson or Miller, but if he were hurt, why wouldn't they tell us. What's going on here?
- Andreas Athanasiou is good, yo. - Like, real good.
- Ouellet/Marchenko and the future of the defense - The Wings signed Ouellet to an extension on Monday. What does that mean for XO and where does it all fit in. How do you describe how Alexey Marchenko plays?
- The Abdelkader Deal - Now that we've had some time to digest it, let's dig right into the Abby deal and talk about our more-formed feelings.
- Prospects Report - Michelle takes us through the Griffins past, present and future, then covers the non-AHL prospects in the system.
- Reader Questions - Yours and my favorite part of the episode, when we finally start paying more attention to you guys instead of ourselves.
- The Week Ahead - Let's all take guesses on how the Wings will fare in their next three games.
