In Red Wings Land
Filip Zadina signed his ELC yesterday and it appears that next season he’ll either be a member of the Red Wings or headed to the AHL. So what’s the best option?
I have a take.— Prashanth Iyer (@iyer_prashanth) July 7, 2018
The best thing for the Red Wings is to give Zadina 9 games in the NHL and then let him spend the rest of the year in the AHL https://t.co/efgjKGn6Pl
Only reason I bring this viewpoint up is that 99% of fans want to see him in Detroit. As much as I want to see that too because the last couple of years have been rough to watch, the smarter move would be to slide the contract for at least this year— Prashanth Iyer (@iyer_prashanth) July 7, 2018
There’s more to Prashanth’s thread on his Twitter timeline if you want to dive deeper into his thoughts.
I do like the idea of being able to slide Zadina’s contract, but, man, I also like the idea of him scoring 30 goals next season and winning the Calder. I really don’t know what the right call is here and I’m glad I’m not making the decision.
