Larkin's just a hair under point a game right now, 20+ minutes a night and playing in all situations. He's a 1st line center.

Not saying he isn't, but on a legit contender I'd think they'd want a guy just above him on the depth chart. That 1-2 punch up the middle is a must for any contender IMO. I've always been curious to see if any team ever truly bucks that particular school of thought (and no, Chicago doesn't count...Patrick Kane may line up at RW, but he's a center).

Yeah, it would be awesome to get a guy who could bump him down and would certainly help the rebuild/contend cycle, but unless they're really high in the draft it'll be difficult to get a guy likely to be that good.

Detroit's sitting in a 3-way tie for 18th in the league in points with 22. There are 8 teams behind them within 1 or 2 points. Holy mediocrity batman. They go on a quick losing streak and it could move them all the way back to like 28th or 29th.

That's true, and they are also only 4 points out of a playoff spot.

Fuuuuuck. Mantha out due to having surgery on his hand after fighting Nemeth after he put Larkin's head into the boards.

Justified and he definitely got the better of Nemeth in that fight but...probably not the wisest course of action.

This is the second time he busted his hand fighting. The first was against his now current teammate Luke Witkowski.

After taking a while to get his first of the season, Neilsen puts up a hat trick agains the Lightning in a 6-5 SO loss. No 3-goal lead is safe in a Wings game, regardless of who has it.

I'm expecting an absolute shit show against the Leafs tonight. Like the Leafs putting up a 7 or more on the board.

The Leafs first game with a full lineup this season. Just the kinda thing to make them come out flat. Think that is the real reason Babcock is putting Sparks in, to add one less comfort for them to fall back on.

Kinda ingenious if it works.

It didn't. Too much too soon Wings now you have to kill two periods.

The Wings couldn't hold a three-goal lead. Nice pass from Nyquist to Larkin on the OT winner though.

Nobody can hold a 3-goal lead in a Wings game this year. Wings or their opponent!

Howard holds fort in the 3rd period with the Wings getting outshot 19-4, and the Wings don't blow a 3-0 lead going on to win 3-1!
