SORT BY Relevancy
Welcome to a new episode of WIIM Radio. This time we had me, Jeff and Kyle only (RIP Graham) to cover the week where there were no Wings games to cover, but lots to talk about. Here's what we got into:
The ASG Weekend and the amazing John Scott story - The NHL fell backwards into the best All-Star game I've ever seen. Trying to pick a favorite moment was like trying to pick a favorite kid (meaning you do it, but don't tell anybody because they'll judge you for it).
Dylan Larkin's ASG Weekend - Hey we had a guy there and he caught everybody's eye with how good he is. Larkin rules.
Can you recreate the Scott magic? Should you even try? - Nobody knew what was going to happen this year, but now there's a "script." Is it possible to have this happen again without it all coming across as hokey saccharine bullshit? I say no.
The line combos - Luke Glendening practiced on the third line because of Sheahan's illness. Kyle tries to be ok with it and I say something mean to him because of it.
The defense and the future of Kronwall - Detroit's de facto #1 defenseman isn't capable of doing that anymore. What can he still do for us and what's his future with the team?
Prospects Report - Michelle runs us through all the goings-on with the prospects spread about the world.
Reader Questions - Everybody's favorite segment covers all the great reader questions you left in our mailbag. No duck-sized Eric Tangradis this week, but we got some real good questions.
The Week ahead - The Wings will play four more times before we meet again. How will they do in that time?

As always, WIIM Radio is rated R for clown groping and language.

Two weeks ago, I said, while with big injuries, if they can stay at .500, it would be a big success. It would allow them to heal up and get ready for the next lap of the season. Lo and behold, this is where they have been with an OT loss to Vancouver, a win versus Ottawa, a loss against Detroit and a postponement against the Flyers. Two big injuries and got 3 points in 3 games.
Hamonic is back, Boychuk will be too after all star break
So what's next...
More misery from fans? Surely. Lots of hope of rescue in a trade deadline miracle? Don't hold your breathe.
What is needed is for players not performing as they did last year to get on track or ramp up. That will be the big difference maker.
