The Wings will go as far as their first line can carry them. They've carried them to 2-0.

Larkin is a fucking machine now, just a model of consistency. Last season only went 3 or more games(4 games) one single time without a point.

Gregg Kruppa likes to describe Tyler Bertuzzi as A Hockey Player. I've described him like that before too. Guy just knows how to play the game. Tons of hockey smarts.

Mantha has been criticized for an inconsistent effort in the past but when he's on...look out. Sounds like Franzen? Well, he just scored 4 of 4 last night for the win, the first Wings 4-goal game since Mule put up 5 against the Sens in 2011. Hoping to see him have a monster season.

Wings fans are ready for a long, bad season. But this first line, along with Hronek, AA and some other kids that get into the lineup, will be worth watching.

Better to watch a young team with upside and little hope than a bunch of vets clinging to what little hope is left, which I feel had been the Wings' MO in the final Hank years. Now they've got a clean slate and nowhere to go but up.

That's it exactly. 3 straight first-round losses going into the new building and Kenny re-signs guys on the wrong side of the aging curve for more money, and goes to the free agent market. Then when the rebuild did begin, he didn't tear it down as swiftly as needed.

As good as finishing last for the best odds to get Lafrenière would be, I feel like we'd get Colorado'd in the lottery. I just can't cheer for this team to lose.

Both times the odds were slightly in favour of pick 4 over 1,2,3 combined, but that's still a tough pill to swallow.

Surprisingly, Iyer is saying nice things about Patrik Nemeth. He and Green together actually makes a lot of sense.

Lose to the Ducks, who surged once everyone on twitter was pointing and laughing at how awful the Ducks are. Thanks a lot, twitter hockey peeps.

4-2 win over the Habbies with the top line continuing their dominance.
