Checking out the competition: Detroit Red Wings

In which we attempt to talk about actual hockey on the ice.

NHL: Philadelphia Flyers at Detroit Red Wings Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

Hello and welcome to the very first game day of the post-Hakstol era! Where anything can happen! Will the Flyers respond well? Come out with energy? Look like the same old boring jerks? Who can say! Ahead of tonight’s game, we were joined by Peter Flynn of Winging It In Motown to learn a little bit about those Red Wings and also to talk about Dave Hakstol. We had to. Topics include:

  • The aforementioned Dave Hakstol, and how this whole mess reads from the outside
  • The Red Wings future, and how far away the light at the end of the tunnel seems to be
  • Ken Holland’s solutions to the problems caused by Ken Holland
  • Dylan Larkin, who is fun and good

Tonight’s game is a 7PM start and will air on the NBC Sports Philly network. New start for the boys, here’s hoping they go out and get it.
