In Red Wings Land
Red Wings used to Thanksgiving travel, but many appreciate holiday - Freep.com
Helene provides some great Thanksgiving content by asking around the locker room about Thanksgiving among various Americans, Canadians, and a Swede about what they do. I like that Mike Green celebrates American Thanksgiving because he's been here so long and it really seems like he's liked. My favorite part is Jonathan Ericsson acting like Mork from Ork when asked about our Traditions, saying "We are not familiar with baking whole turkeys in the oven."
I guess I just love that Helene wrote out the quote exactly like that instead of contracting it to we're.

Wings’ Nyquist aims to cash in on created chances - The Detroit News
Krupa focuses on Nyquist, mentioning that he's playing well, but the numbers don't necessarily show how well so far. I think it's a real good point and that Nyquist has been one of the best forechecking AND backchecking forwards on the team so far this season. He's probably not going to get back to shooting 18% like when he first came up, but I'd be real thrilled if he keeps playing like he has so far.
