Winged Wheel Podcast - A Detroit Red Wings Podcast

Aug 22, 2022

We're 3 years into Steve Yzerman's tenure as GM of the Detroit Red Wings, and it's time to take stock of the #Yzerplan. Tune in as we discuss The Athletic's NHL Front Office Confidence rankings, and whether Yzerman and the Detroit Red Wings ranking among the league's best is warranted, what Yzerman, Draper & Co. have done well & what hasn't worked out, & whether the Yzerplan is still on track (6:55).

Also, we take a look at Detroit's prospects at the World Juniors, discussing Simon Edvinsson's less-than-stellar performance, Carter Mazur & Red Savage doing work for Team USA, Sebrango & Cossa winning with Canada, Viro, Wallinder, Niederbach, & more (27:30)! Of course, Mason McTavish's insane goal-line save leading to Kent Johnson's OT gold medal winner (46:00).

Finally, a look at Nazem Kadri's huge contract with Calgary, Montreal taking on Monahan's contract in an insanely confusing deal (52:35), & so much more - enjoy!
