In Red Wings Land

Dylan Larkin close to deal, says Red Wings will be ‘dangerous’ | Detroit News

“A lot of talking and negotiating; it’s a bit of a process,” said Larkin, who was a guest instructor Thursday at the Red Wings’ youth camp at Little Caesars Arena. “It’s back and forth thinking, and everything is definitely a process, (but) you can’t sit by your phone all summer, you still have to train and work out and have fun, go on trips.

“I’m learning the business side of it, but I feel pretty confident that something will get done before training camp. No worries about it.”

If Dylan Larkin isn’t worried then I’m not worried. The kid seems to have the right attitude about his contract status and the upcoming season.
