SI’s Power Rankings: I can be thankful for the Wings’ top line, but is it Thanksgiving without the Seider?

Yeah, the title of this entry is a terrible pun, I know it. But what the hell. Anyway, Sports Illustrated’s Kate Yanchulis posted a set of power rankings, and they’re…mostly accurate as to what the Red Wings should be thankful for at American Thanksgiving:

27. Detroit Red Wings

Last week: 26
Record: 8-9-3

A top-tier top line. Dylan Larkin, Todd Bertuzzi and Lucas Raymond are the top three players on the Red Wings in terms of point production, with 52 points between them. The problem? They’re not receiving much production from the rest of their forwards.

I have been blogging about the Red Wings since 2006, when MLive hired me to work their SlapShots blog, and I joined Kukla's Korner in 2011 as The Malik Report. I'm starting The Malik Report as a stand-alone site, hoping that having my readers fund the website is indeed the way to go to build a better community and create better content.
