In Red Wings Land
Detroit Red Wings players try to guess which headshot is which player, as drawn by 2nd grade students.
Since the game was awful, let’s just watch some fun videos from Kids Day yesterday at Little Caesar’s Arena.
Of course, if you want to relive the loss to the Sabres, you can read about it using the link above.

3. Quinton Byfield is a better fit than Alexis Lafreniere for what the Detroit Red Wings need.
Peters: Soft sell. If the draft were tomorrow, the best player available would be Lafreniere. That said, there has been a growing belief among some scouts I talk to that there is potential for Byfield to become a dominant No. 1 center. If the Red Wings share that belief, they might go with the 6-foot-4, 215-pound pivot who skates like the wind and has some great hands as a one-two punch with Dylan Larkin. It’s still Lafreniere, but there’s a long way to go.
Lafreniere all day.
Tom Fitzgerald, who was assistant GM, is taking over on an interim basis. Former Devils goalie Martin Brodeur, who is their executive vice president of business development, will serve as an adviser for hockey operations.
In Martin Brodeur's increased role with the Devils, his first act is going to be trying to trade PK Subban for Malcolm Subban— Winging It In Motown (@wingingitmotown) January 12, 2020
Dude's got a history of trading people for members of their family.
