He was also the Big Ten scoring champion.

I think he just doesn't want to sign with a crap organization if he can help it.


That would be my guess.


While I have no way of knowing how he feels about the Wings, he knows Larkin is going to be a Red Wing in a couple years, and he knows he played his stellar senior season on Larkin's wing.




From our perspective...he's a pretty big body, right-winger (who can play center), shoots right, led a solid Wolverines teams in scoring. And Hockey's Future is correct: he "plays a disciplined, hard hitting game in his own zone" and "has become a quality possession player who takes a lot of defensive zone starts and converts them into up-ice pressure." He's exactly the kind of winger we're looking for (better than Kyle Baun, who we pursued but lost to Chicago), and we may be able to get him for free.


Datsyuk and Zetterberg...Nyquist and Tatar...Mantha and Athanasiou...Larkin and Hyman...

I can't believe this, Wings need to try to acquire Hall or Eberle I'd be happy to give up X-man and Tatar For one of them.


They finally get a generational centerman and then they go and trade one of their two best wingers for Tatar and Ouellet? Not happening. And that's fine, because we don't need a winger. The Oiler we should be looking at is Draisaitl.

Well, now we know what the man in the street is saying at the end of that Radiohead video.


"Edmonton gets McDavid."

People saying Zidlicky is small and can't play defense, he can play defense. But that's not really why he is here. He is here because he can make the first pass out of the defensive zone, knows how to quarterback a powerplay, and has a right-handed shot. Not all of our defensemen need to be shut down defensmen. Sure it's great to get a guy that can do both but those guys aren't available without giving up the farm.




Zidlicky brings an element to our team that we're sorely - if not completely - lacking. Excellent puck-mover, passer, power play quarterback, shooter, scorer, point-producer. It's fitting that we got him from the Devils and that he'll be wearing #28, as he really is the first Rafalski type we've had since Rafalski called it quits.


With Zidlicky in our lineup, we'll be spending more time on the attack and we'll be scoring more goals.
