After a slow start to the season the Detrot Red Wings are now one of the hottest teams in the NEFHL..Ever since acquiring Alec Martinez 17 games ago the Wings went on a 11-3-3 run..Let's say despite running into injury problems where we lost Z for a month, Kane for a few weeks and Monahan for a week we had a very good month of december..Now we lost Kane again but this time for 3 months with a condition of 41 so i doubt we will see him back until the playoffs..That's sad because our team started to find some chemistry..Now we are gonna be looking for a top 6 player available who could fill a void but with there's not a whole lot of sellers at the moment...Hopefully we can find something out there not that expensive..
On other news JJ is not really talked about enough... He's been a beast for us and quietly having a Norris kind of season...With all the talent we have up front, JJ has been my team best scorer all season long and now sits with 10 goals 26 assists for 36 points in 42 games...He's 1 point behind Hedman for most points by a defencemen...He's been playing 24 minutes a game with first PP and PK...With Hedman now being out for a month it's time for JJ to keep what he does best and he could be winning a Norris at the end of the year...
We were hoping to go grab a mean shutdown defencemen around the trade deadline but with all the injuries that i have at the moment those plans are/will be on hold...I don't have a position change left so i can't put Helm on the wing when Zetterberg will come back...It would of had solved a lot of problems:(
As of now with all the injuries:
