In Red Wings Land
Khan(!) goes through 10 kids and I can’t really say I disagree with too much of what he’s written. The one thing that I don’t like is his assessment of Evgeny Svechnikov.
Timeline to NHL: Barring a spectacular showing in training camp and the preseason, Svechnikov will start the season in Grand Rapids and likely will be recalled at some point. It is his final waiver-exempt season. Starting in 2019-20, he’s in the NHL to stay.
Here we go again.
I thought we were done with the overripe thing? If the roster is really “wipe open” then Svechnikov better be on the opening night roster. He isn’t going to get any better playing with AHL-caliber teammates. He needs to be with the Red Wings taking on the best competition with the best linemates possible.
Around the League
I hope the Summer of Ovi never stops.
