Welcome to the newest addition of WIIM Radio! We had me, Graham and Kyle on to talk Wings and featured another awesome prospects report from Michelle. Here’s the rundown:
- The Hall of Fame – Another two members of the greatest NHL squad to ever grace the ice went into the Hall of Fame this week as Sergei Fedorov and Nicklas Lidstrom, who were both with the Wings for the 2001-02 cup run were inducted. We’ll talk lots and lots about that.
- Latest News – Pavel Datsyuk is set to return and Andreas Athanasiou may have to be sent back down. Do we want that? I mean, of course we want Datsyuk to return, but AA has been good. What to do with the defense?
- The Week that Was – Don’t look now, but Detroit has won four out of their last five games. How good have they really been though?
- Justin Abdelkader – Bob McKenzie announced that the Wings and Abdelkader are finalizing a 7-year deal worth more than $4M AAV while we were recording, so we talked about it. Enjoy the air disappearing entirely from the episode at this point.
- Prospects Report –
We talked a bit about the Flint Firebirds debacleand then Michelle will take us through Griffins and other prospects news.
- Reader Questions – We went through the reader questions to answer those which didn’t already have answers. We gave those questions answers. Cool story, J.J.
- The Week Ahead – the Wings still have two more games this week against San Jose and Boston, then play Ottawa on Monday. We give our predictions.
