  1. Osterle was not talked about before the season begins. He must have talent to make the Wings D. Stetcher also started out great with the Nucks but the NHL caught up to Stetcher and exposed some weaknesses and his confidence took a dip.

    With the proper coaching and a new team, he might surprise! Interesting pairing these two together. Will see!

    1. Oesterle has been a solid #6 defenseman for a couple of seasons now. He skates very, very well…

      And I’m not sure what’s happening with Stecher. He’d usually make the sixth pair easily. We’ll find out what coach Blashill is thinking sooner than later.
