In Red Wings Land

Detroit — It wasn’t the way Filip Zadina wanted things to go, these last several weeks at the world junior tournament.

Zadina, playing for his native Czech Republic, wanted to duplicate the success of a year ago (Zadina had seven goals in seven games and led his country to a medal).

It didn’t go that way.

The Czech Republic didn’t reach the medal round and Zadina had no goals and one assist in five games. In a lot of ways, it was a dud.

Would you consider Zadina’s performance very, very, very disappointing? Should the Red Wings be concerned at all that he didn’t dominate?
