It’s been said many times by now that the 1989 draft was a game-changer for the Wings. Like any draft, there were many players who were never utilized or that were missed out on. Unfortunate casualties to last-minute decisions, often quality players are passed over. Though 1989 held many players worth their weight in gold

Inconsistency has certainly been the common theme of the Detroit Red Wings this season. Their goalies have been no different – Jimmy Howard and Petr Mrazek struggled mightily at times this year and looked unbeatable in others.
