Welcome to another WIIM Radio mailbag. It's been a week since we last got together to chit-chat about this-n-that. We've got plenty to talk about in what's already looking like a jam-packed episode. Here's the rundown:
- The week that was - The Wings went 2-2-0 coming out of the All-Star break, hitting what we hope was rock bottom in Florida before winning the last two by a combined score of 8-1, including a real solid win over the division-leading Panthers.
- The Abdelkader hit - We should know before we record whether Justin Abdelkader is going to see supplemental discipline for his hit on Barkov in Monday's game. We'll discuss it.
- Around the league/NHL Awards watch - Crosby may be sneaking up on the MVP, who's good for Norris? Can Larkin and Mrazek get their awards?
- Prospects Report - Michelle takes us through the Griffins and other Red Wings prospects to get you caught up on everything going on in the pipeline.
- Reader Questions - Our favorite part of every episode, where we answer your questions. Go ahead and ask us anything in the comments below. Provided we haven't already answered it in this episode (or in every one of the last four episodes), we'll answer just about anything!
- The week ahead - Ottawa, Colorado, Boston, and the Isles loom in the next week. How good are we feeling going forward here?

We'll be recording late tonight, so get your questions in all day!
