Welcome to our newest WIIM Radio! This time around we had me, Peter, and Prashanth around to talk all things Wings. Here’s what we got into:
Closing Out the Joe - Memories and feelings from the last game at the Joe from the ride watching at home to the in-arena atmosphere; we talked about a real fun game to experience to finish out a disappointing season.
What Comes Next for the Wings - While fans chanted “come home Stevie”, we get a chance to discuss how the Wings get back to having real pride for the team they are. It starts at the GM position, of course and the need to make the right moves. Prashanth talks about his plan.
Drafting and General Managing - We discussed the Wings draft strategy being for maximum value and the faith in the general manager to carry this stuff out. Mostly, we get a lot of stuff out about how Ken Holland is going to get one more year, but that year is going to be telling one way or another.
Frans Nielsen and the Wings Being Tougher to Play Against - Nielsen’s comments were right... but also kind of wrong. Confused? Don’t be. We’ll explain.
Around the League - HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA CHICAGO. Ok we’ll talk about everything else too, including the coach/GM firings and the Wideman lawsuit.
Positivity Corner - Our favorite segment is back with nice things to say about a very small percentage of things that aren’t terrible!
Reader Questions - The questions are a week old but still fresh, so we served ‘em up and knocked ‘em out!
