Listen to WIIM Radio: The Kid Stays In the Picture Edition

The WIIM Crew catches you up on all things Red Wings

NHL: Detroit Red Wings at Columbus Blue Jackets Russell LaBounty-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to another episode of Winging it in Motown Radio! On this episode, I am joined by first-timers Sara aka Helmerroids and Josh. Here’s what we talked about.

Performance compared to expectations - The team has not done very well in the standings to start the season, but most of us expected that. Regardless of the standings, how is the team living up (or down) to our expectations?

The Kid Stays in the Picture - Michael Rasmussen played his 10th NHL game this season, so this year will count as a year of his ELC. Was that the right decision? What have we seen from him so far?

Other Current Questions: When Dekeyser comes back, who comes out of the lineup? With Vanek out for 2-3 weeks, and Athanasiou possibly out more than a couple games, who gets the call up from Grand Rapids?

Lose for Hughes? - Detroit fans have to wrestle with this strange feeling of balancing the normal fan interest of wanting your team to win with the realistic view of knowing the team would benefit from the highest draft pick possible. How are we dealing with that dichotomy?

What Else Is Happening? - There are a lot of other interesting storylines happening around the league. Which ones are we most interested in? Just how sick are we of hearing about Toronto?

Positivity Corner - It seems we are going to need some positivity this season, so let’s have it!

Reader Questions - What do you want to hear about? You asked, we answered!
