Welcome to our latest edition of WIIM Radio. This time around we didn't have a prospects report because we just had Michelle on for the whole show. She joined me, Kyle, and Lauren to shoot the breeze about the Wings. Here's what we got up to:

  • The Griffins Run - Grand Rapids lost in six games to the Lake Erie Monsters. The series was kind of heartbreaking, but the NHL-caliber prospects played very well. Mantha, AA, Sproul, Jensen, Ouellet, Bertuzzi, and even Svechnikov played big boy hockey against a Monsters team pretty stacked with high-end prospects themselves.
  • The World Championships - Nyquist has been a scoring machine on the bigger ice and against not-quite-NHL-level competition. Datsyuk is still technically a Red Wing and has an assist-per-game so far. Jurco has two goals, Larkin is playing well, and Alexey Marchenko has been playing big time for Team Russia.
  • Coaching Carousel - Houda steps into Tony Granato's shoes to take over for a rebuilding defense, Fershweiler heads to the classroom to watch, Bedard steps out for Salajko, which potentially means the end of Howard and what about Todd Richards?
  • Reader Questions - Lots of good questions this week and one weird one about African animals (thanks for the banner image idea). We hit all the good points that we had missed thanks to you readers.
