In Red Wings Land
More Prospects Tourney stuff. I have no idea why the 10 guys to watch is listed alphabetically but starting off with Kaden Fulcher is just kind of jarring to the whole thing (also I’d have included Elmer Soderblom over him, but that’s not important).
I like Niyo’s writeup on Kronner’s career here. It’s still kind of setting in and while I’m happy he got to go out on his terms and feel the timing was right I’m still just kind of sad about how much this truly closes out the last era of Wings’ dominance.
Around the League
There’s been a lot of talk lately about the NHL’s general inability to reach new fans, but I do think the Sharks have consistently done a really good job in their market and with their fanbase. I really like Kendall Coyne Schofield too and I’m rooting for her to do a great job in the broadcasts this season.
Maybe next year, Ehn.
Best of Both Worlds
