Welcome to the newest edition of WIIM Radio! This time around we had me joined by Peter and Kyle to talk about the happenings around Red Wings land lately. Here’s what we got up to:
The Athanasiou Situation (Again): AA leveraging the KHL option and all of the crap that goes along with it. We explain why a Canadian kid would be seriously flirting with a KHL deal and how the NHL system would even create a need to do it.
Prospect Tournament: The Wings will be looking to avenge their finals loss to the Carolina Hurricanes’ kiddos last year. We’re pretty interested in what’s going on with some of the newer kids who’ll be there, especially on the defensive side of the ledger.
LCA Opening: The Red Wings’ new arena opening with Kid Rock is too perfect, but in a very sad way. You’ll have to listen to find out how.
Season Expectations / Excitement Level: We’re going to need a strong positivity corner after this one, I promise you that. We’ll find a way to entertain ourselves watching this season, one way or another.
Positivity Corner: We love you all and want you to know how great things can be, even in down times.
Reader Questions: You asked, we answered about ribs in Kansas City. This was a good section.
