If you want to read about the Red Wings latest loss by a lot of goals, feel free to do so above.
If you want to just ignore all that and have some fun and reminisce about the good old days, keep reading.
It’s always great to see Henrik Zetterberg, but even better seeing Johan Franzen out and about considering his battle with post-concussion syndrome.
Someone give Madison Bowey and Evgeny Svechnikov their own weekly show.
Around the League
2020 NHL Draft Prospect Rankings: November | Sportsnet
1. Alexis Lafreniere, LW, Rimouski Oceanic (QMJHL): Remains on track as he continues to pick apart the QMJHL at a Connor-McDavid like pace. Had to miss the Canada-Russia series with a lower-body injury that is expected to keep him out of action for 1-2 weeks.
2. Quinton Byfield, C, Sudbury Wolves (OHL): Dominates because of size and strength, but the skill is not left behind.
It’s the usual suspects ranked #1 and #2. It would be absolutely huge if the Wings could land one of these two players.
