The Athletic’s Dom Luszczyszyn wrote his preview of the Detroit Red Wings and well, let’s just say it didn’t go over well with a lot of Red Wings fans. I am a huge fan of Luszczyszyn’s work, but yes, even I must say–I felt this piece missed some contextual points about certain players–Filip Zadina being one of them.
It’s not that calling the Red Wings a bottom five team or one that is a mile away from making the playoffs is off. I don’t disagree with that at all. Hell, I’m beginning to wonder if the Red Wings glory years will include Dylan Larkin or Tyler Bertuzzi at this point.
