    Oh Captain, No Captain?

    How cool to see them unretire his jersey as they intro him as captain. OR does he flip the numbers so 91 gets in the rafters?

    Oh Captain, No Captain?

    I wonder if they are just saying this going into camp and once the preseason is over they "change" their minds and name Larkin captain based on bolded below. "Blashill said he talked with Steve Yzerman and they agreed it's better not to name a captain until the new GM gets to know the team better so they'll start with 4 alternates. He said they reserve the right to change their mind." So it makes it look even across the board as far as "competition" for spots on the roster the talking heads @ freep.com, mlive, detroitnews keep yakking about so rather than just hand it to Larkin. He wins it due to effort showing the REAL and ALWAYS captain in the pressbox that he is worthy of the title in camp.

    Kronwall Officially Announces Retirement

    tI think our draft pick is super focused on getting to the next level...! I totally loved the parents can fly over comment and just did a flight lookup on Delta. From DTW to Frankfurt the closest airport to Mannheim(45 min) first class is like 5K per person dependent on times. From GR prices go all the way up to ~8k per person. So I would assume Moritz is picking up the tab so better for him to make the Wings roster so save some dollars when parents visit...LOL Is there a subtitled version of the interview cause this Michigan boy that coverted to a redneck don't speak that there funny language.

    Kronwall Officially Announces Retirement

    At 1:52 I liked the comment a very very exciting time for the Wings not this year but the future. With the added comment strong d-core for the future so we have that soundbite to hang our hats on

    2020 Offseason Rebuild Thread

    I agree with above you have a GM that has been there done that so IMHO his tolerance of lazy unmotivated play is limited. I think he won't tolerate someone not willing to take a little less to help the team move forward be it in ice time or $$. He knows what it is to suffer and not win and make the playoffs during the Dead Wings to winning 3 cups in 6 years. I highly doubt he isn't taking a long look at things right now and we will see movement during camp. I see us potentially having a solid season and the next year pushing towards the playoffs. Granted I have my Wing colored Yzerman fan glasses on cause the future is bright.

    Or the GM's first 2 letters of their last name. 2nd letter first then first letter. I could also live with the first letter scenario also.

    2019 Draft

    From this article https://www.freep.com/story/sports/nhl/red-wings/2019/06/23/detroit-red-wings-nhl-draft-grades/1535168001/ a quote from Andersson. “Yzerman has been pretty strict,” Andersson said after the two-day draft concluded on Saturday. “He wants competitive players, too. There are no dogs. Like sometimes you draft a guy with high talent, Dick Axelsson is one example, but they don’t compete. But these guys all work for it.” I thought the bolded was an interesting thought ...now if you can get talent that's competitive you have what our GM was as player so here's hoping #6 pick is both.
