In Red Wings Land
“As much as everyone would love to rush the process, and I would say I lead that charge — I want to win today — you simply can’t,” Blashill said. “The message from Steve has been super clear on that. We want to win today, for sure, but we’re not going to hurt ourselves a year from now or two years from now. We’re not going to force guys onto the team if they’re not ready to help us win.”
Man, it’s tough to be patient sometimes.

There’s still plenty of time for the lines to be changed up, but so much for having Frans Nielsen and Valtteri Filppula as your 2nd and 3rd line centers, eh?
Down On The Farm
Detroit’s current NHL roster didn’t earn much love from our panelists (No. 30), and the cap/contract situation wasn’t graded much better (No. 24), but there were some encouraging signs in the prospects (No. 12) and owner/GM/coach (No. 12).
No real shocking predictions about the Red Wings in this one.

Hronek is going to be really good this season.
