So, Hockey fan or not...you have heard of the Red Wings.
After a disappointing playoff run last season, and losing in game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals against Pittsburgh in 2008 you can most definitely expect the Wings to come back in a huge way this season. With the addition of legendary American skater Mike Modano expect to see all of our lines improve as well as our penalty kill. Jiri Hudler will also be returning to the Wings this season after his season long run in the KHL.
So who will be the top points producers? Here are my predictions.
1. Henrik Zetterberg
Not only do I think he feels the cup calling his name, his passion for the game has made him a natural leader for the Wings. I expect him to put up anywhere from 80-90 points this season.
2. Pavel Datsyuk
Expect more shootout wizardry from this man. He can weave himself so well through traffic in the zone it's sickening. Expect him to make anywhere from 80-90 points this season.
3. Johan Franzen
Expect everyone on the ice to be a little afraid of this man. The Mule is back and kicking in full force after coming off of being injured last season. His points surged last season when he came back, expect season long scoring madness. Expect him to make around 80 points.
There are many things to be excited for this season if you are a Wings fan. Expect more updates from me.
