I can't bring myself to watch preseason hockey but it sounds like AA is doing well this preseason. Curious if putting him at center / giving him more responsibility will be beneficial. Centering Vanek and Abdelkader makes sense if Abdelkader's there to do the work / cover defensively.

Classic 8-6 Norris Division tilt against the Blackhawks tonight.

Is Corey Crawford done?

he's back on the ice training by himself (cat silverman posted video of him doing tracking exercises) but it sounds like he is really really far away still

Zadina with the OT winner. It still sounds like he'd be better off starting the year in Grand Rapids, but I suspect he won't be there all year.

I immediately thought of making a gimmick account called Clitty with a decidedly NSFW avatar of Gritty's body with a vagina over his face.

"We knew that if we let the team know we are not going to accept what happened last (season), including how Zack played, that hopefully the message would be passed to the room," the club's general manager told TSN's Brent Wallace.

A real test for the Red Wings' pursuit of the preseason Stanley Cup: back-to-back games against the Leaves

I am completely not engaging with hockey this year and probably as long as Melnyk owns the SNES. Partly why I'm not posting but also just work + life is busy as shit. Anyway, hi fellows.

The auto bidding was tied to your interest in hockey this season, which is why neither you nor Modular Kessler bid on most players

Well I'm glad it didn't make everyone else's draft shittier at least!

Wings roster news for the interest of myself only

Rasmussen and Cholowski made the roster, which isn't a surprise given their camps / preseasons but heartening. Glad Cholocop's progressing well.

Christoffer Ehn made the team over Zadina, Witkowski (!), Turgeon, etc. I haven't seen him play much, if at all.

Curious who else makes the team -- whether it's Frk or Svech 1.0, Hicketts or Hronek or Sulak.

Jussi Jokinen was released from his PTO.
