In Red Wings Land Tomas Tatar the latest Detroit Red Wings castoff to disappoint elsewhere | Freep I still like Tomas Tatar even though he’s not a member of the Red Wings anymore. It’s a bummer that he hasn’t produced very well for the Golden Knights and was scratched for the last two games of Vegas’ series against the Kings. I’d love to see him rebound... next season. Right now, the Knights can suck it and lose in the 2nd round to the Sharks. I want the best draft pick possible for the Wings.

Red Wings Final Grades – Defense & Goalies

Oh, that (in)famous Detroit Red Wings defense. In what was a disastrous year for the Red Wings, their team defense certainly accounted for most of the blame. With no true, top-pairing blueliners on the roster—but plenty of past-their-prime veterans—Detroit’s defense was a sore spot for the struggling franchise.
