In Red Wing Land

Will Red Wings make run at better pick? No tanks | Detroit News

They play Montreal (Monday), Buffalo (Thursday) and Ottawa (Saturday) — sandwiched around a game Tuesday against Pittsburgh, but the Penguins aren’t truly involved in this particular conversation.

You see, the Canadiens, Sabres and Senators are all bunched with the Red Wings in the race to the bottom of the NHL standings.

I’ll 100% admit that I’m on #TeamTank. The Red Wings should lose every game remaining on their schedule. I fully understand there is no guarantee to get the top pick because of the lottery system, but the season is lost and over with. If the franchise can increase their chances at landing Rasmus Dahlin by 5%... then damnit I want that to happen.
